About Us

We’ve been doing this since 1997 as a family. We’re not a big corporation or some young entrepreneurial kid looking to make a quick buck. We take great pride in our service reputation and our student retention. We have many kids that have been with us for over five years. We’re honored to be considered the best after school program in St. Petersburg.

Come Visit Us

Our 6,000 square foot after school program facility in St. Petersburg is a clean and safe environment for your child. Our 12 security cameras cover our four dedicated classrooms, padded training areas, game stations, quiet areas for study, clean cafeteria, lobby, and all general areas.

Anti-Bullying Zone

Bullies bully simply because they don’t know how to be a friend! Since they don’t understand how to be a friend, they try to build their self esteem in a negative way. Bullies have to feel like they are stronger, better, more powerful, or feel like the boss of you. They are mean in many ways because they don’t understand how to treat people as they would want to be treated. If they have never been taught to be a friend, the only way they know how to act is to be mean.

Benefits of Our Program


Martial arts develops excellent coordination for students. Unlike most sports, martial arts does not favor one side. You practice everything on the left and right side.


Focus is like a muscle. The more you use it the stronger it gets. From academics to athletics, improved focus and concentration helps children in all areas of life.


The karate belt system is a great way to build confidence. With each belt earned. the child is rewarded for hard work. That builds confidence.


Our kids are not allowed to bully, tease, harass, rough house or use foul language. We teach and enforce mutual respect.



What Our Families are Saying

This is my sons second year here and we both love it! Not only does he look forward to doing something he loves five days a week, but he's also taught self discipline, manners, and respect. I feel at ease knowing my son is here after school as the program doesn't allow any bullying. The instructors are all great and everything is very organized. Highly recommended!

If you are looking for a trustworthy, anti-bully, and confidence building facility for your child, this is the place! Very convenient they pick up from school. My daughter has gained more confidence from coming here, and has made wonderful friends. I would highly recommend.

My daughter has gained strength, coordination, and endurance attending After School Sports. The parents night out events are a big hit also! But above all, I trust the McCahan family with not only keeping her safe after school every day but in teaching her how to stay safer throughout her lifetime.
