After school activities, promote exercise, give children a chance to be creative, allow them to make new friends and learn new things. The benefits to children are amazing. However, finding the right activity and the right class is challenging. That’s why we put together the 2017 New Orleans After School Activity Guide to help you find the right activity and class for your family.

Some of the activities schools listed in this guide have paid for their listings.

YONSEI MARTIAL ARTS ACADEMY

We change lives!

Whether your child has abandonment issues, can’t sit still, or is hooked on video games, Yonsei Martial Arts Academy located in Kenner will give kids a safe place to develop and learn. Their dynamic, high-energy kids karate program helps children build strength, stamina, and flexibility, as well as develop their body, mindand character. Children of all ages develop confidence, improved motor skills, discipline, self-control, and overall good habits that will transcend for a lifetime.

“I have 2 daughters who are complete opposites. My 13 year old is girly, into dancing and cheerleading and all that froo-frooey stuff. My 11 year old is much more of a Tomboy. She runs track plays basketball, soccer, and volleyball. About a year ago she start telling me she wanted to take karate. I ignored it thinking she just was saying that because of her new love of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon.

She was persistent so I began checking places out. Most places didn’t seem very kid friendly. Then I found Yonsei. They were extremely friendly and invited us in for a free lesson to try it out. I was hooked by the instructors ability to connect with her right away since she can be quite shy. They have an unreal flexible schedule for the kiddos. They expect you to make 8 clases per month but you can take up to 12. There are about 10-12 classes offered per week for her age group and the classes are 45 minutes each. There are several instructors at each class and they give the kids a lot of personal attention. ”
