We want to start instilling the qualities of Discipline, Respect and Self-control in even the youngest students using age appropriate techniques and settings. But, this is not our only focus, learning, creativity and fun will be a HUGE part of their daily routines as well!
To help them get a great start to their day, please make sure they have a healthy breakfast low in sugar or send one for them to eat with us.
Plenty of rest the night before is always a great idea because we are very active at Mini MAAC! Don’t forget hydration! Water is key in keeping them functioning

The MAAC staff members are carefully screened having undergone background checks and FBI fingerprinting.
The CDC states, “Although the brain continues to develop and change into adulthood, the first 8 years can build a foundation for future learning, health and life success.” The MAAC believes that children’s brains are fragile, ever changing and growing, and deserve the utmost care and attention during these crucial years.
Body, mind and spirit has long been a mantra in martial arts. The MAAC wishes to expand this concept by creating a unique program for our earliest learners to aid in healthy brain growth, development of a love of physical activity and instill an indomitable spirit.
The job of a child is to play, this is how they learn. Our job is to make learning fun and accessible to our students. Teaching students the basics of the alphabet, numbers, shapes, and colors is but a small part of what they will learn at the Mini MAAC. Concepts of sharing, teamwork, and compromise are all learned through interaction with others. Through group play, athletics, martial arts and yoga, our students learn these concepts organically.
Life-long healthy habits of an active life-style and healthy eating are learned beginning at a young age at Mini MAAC.
The MAAC has long been known for our devotion to teaching kids martial arts. While learning Tae Kwon do, students learn discipline, respect, self-control, and build self-esteem, all while being physically active. By starting children at the earliest age, they will develop a love of the sport and have a greater chance of remaining physically active through belt testing and ranking up in the sport for years to come as Tae Kwon do and martial arts in general is viewed as a “lifetime sport.”
When Mini MAAC speaks of spirit, it is not in terms of a religion or a spiritual aspect. It is in regard to “those qualities regarded as forming the definitive or typical elements in the character of a person.” When children are born, they are born full of awe and wonder. It is their environment that either fosters or squelches that spirit. Many child care environments today do not promote a strong sense of self worth or a bright future. We believe that by engaging children in the program unique to the Mini MAAC, we can affect change in the students’ core beliefs about themselves and the world around them.
Each child’s behavior is expected to meet the behavioral standards set at Mini MAAC. The staff at the Mini Martial Arts & Athletic Center will intervene when a child’s behavior threatens his/her safety or the safety of others, is causing destruction of property, or is disrupting the activities of others. We offer an environment in which children are encouraged to develop respect for one another, authority, and the property of others. Each child will be treated as an individual and the specific consequences for unacceptable behavior will depend on the circumstances surrounding the incident.
