Grasshoppers offers a specially designed program aimed at helping your child (school age and up) get the most out of his / her unlimited potential. Our after school martial arts program will train your child both physically and mentally in the ancient art of Tae Kwon Do.
Students will also learn valuable bully proofing techniques, including how to assess and react to peer-pressure and self-defence situations. Then, in a homework / study period; he/she will be able to develop concentration, relaxation, and problem solving skills.
Grasshoppers currently has pick ups from Michael Wallace Elementary and Ian Forsyth Elementary School. Ecole Bois Joli and Ecole Shannon Park are bussed directly to Grasshoppers as a courtesy from CSAP. Unfortunately at this time we do not service any other schools in HRM.
School Pickups start as early as 2:00pm and parents may pick their child from up from Grasshoppers as late as 5:30pm.
Grasshoppers After School Martial Arts Program is a private facility and is not part of the Department of Community Services "daycare act".
Our unique style combines elements from various martial arts with the most up to date fitness training. As a student at Grasshoppers, you will learn ancient TaeKwonDo and Hapkido techniques passed down from master to student for many generations. You will learn practical and effective self-defence techniques, while gaining greater self-confidence and self-control. Grasshoppers is a traditional martial arts school. We emphasize the importance of training the mind, body and spirit as one.
