There's nothing more satisfying than watching your child physical and social skills that you know will benefit them for life. Your little one will learn focus, self-confidence and discipline, while getting a full body work out. Dragonfly's Martial Arts teaches fantastic martial arts moves plus vital interpersonal skills.
Martial Arts is one of the best possible activities for children. They'll learn to defend themselves physically, but more importantly they'll build the mental and emotional skill sets necessary to conquer challenges like high school, college, and becoming a healthy, balanced adult.
Martial Arts is the perfect activity for teenagers! It gives them an outlet for their unique energy through engagement and gross motor skill activity, but at Franklin Karate Academy, they'll do it in a structured class designed and taught just for them.
From setup to clean up, we have you covered! Your child and their friends will play games, be entertained, and even learn real martial arts moves. Parents say it's one of the most unique and coolest parties they've ever been to!
The best in Franklin
Our programs were created for real family schedules. Convenient class times mean that kids, adults, and whole families can improve their quality of life without killing every moment of spare time.
Our positive atmosphere is contagious, and you'll know without a doubt that you're in a place where kids will learn positive habits and adults will make meaningful, lasting friendships.
All of our programs improve physical prowess, and that's important. But what's far more important is the mental and emotional benefits that our programs bring to everyday life.
Both kids and adults will gain flexibility, agility, and strength, even if they aren't athletic! They'll love it, because it's not only super fun, it’s inclusive and accommodating at every step.
Franklin Kids agree:
Kids love classes at Franklin Karate Academy because they're unbelievably fun (but parents love them because they build benefits for life!)
Everything we do is intentionally structured based on our extensive experience. Kids at Franklin Karate Academy actually like the structure, because it makes them feel safe and cared for. They can trust deep down that they're safe to explore and challenge themselves.
We take kids’ emotions seriously. The culture at Franklin Karate Academy is one of inclusion - no cliques, no cool kids club, no unkind actions or attitudes. Kids love it because they always feel like they belong!
It's so much fun! At Franklin Karate Academy, we know that getting your child out of the house, in the car, and across town to an activity is a big deal. We guarantee that when they leave, it will have been 100% worth it, every time!
Programs built for real people
Our classes were designed specifically for the average person. You'll build skills step by step, without having to be a superstar to see improvement. But stick with it, and you'll see your abilities soar!
You'll will be surrounded by peers striving towards the same goals you are, day in, day out. You'll build friendships and be supported in your individual journey.
We've always known it, but now the science agrees: You must take time for your own mental health. Martial Arts helps you clear your mind, accomplish goals, and be more healthy, from the inside out.
It's more than just learning awesome looking moves - it's proprioception, balance, agility and more - physical skills that will remain with and benefit you for the rest of your life.
We send regular anonymous surveys to our members in our program. Here's a sample of the real feedback we get regularly:
A class filled with kindness, friendship, discipline, knowledge, excitement, and best of all RESPECT. My daughter loves karate, loves her friendships she’s built, and has grown so much just from learning from Sifu Rob. The amount of support from everyone who attends Franklin karate Kajukenpo is amazing and I would highly recommend to anyone!!
We have been with Franklin karate for a few months now, my son was the youngest kid in the class! And has learned so much about patience and control. Listening, being a good friend, and to always act like a black belt!! We love it and highly recommend
