As the first day of school approaches, the need for after-school care also returns.

Premier Martial Arts will provide after-school care for $63 a week starting on Aug. 18, the first day of school.

“We offer the typical after care other faculties offer; however, we also have the added benefit of our award-winning martial arts program,” Aaron Hensley, owner of Premier Martial Arts, said. “So, when the kids are picked up, they are ready for family time since activity and homework are already done.”

Premier Martial Arts will pick up kids from North Augusta schools, for no additional charge, and keep them until 6:30 p.m.

“Once the kids arrive at Premier Martial Arts, they receive a snack and some downtime before starting homework,” Hensley said. “Then, they have either a martial arts class or physical education class. After that, they have arts and crafts time and free reading or play time before being picked up.”

For the students in the after-school program, Premier Martial Arts also offers training in a number of martial arts.

“Besides being in a positive environment while their parents are at work, they also have the chance to learn the discipline of martial arts,” Hensley said. “We teach kickboxing, Xtreme Martial Arts, including weapons and gymnastics, and Chun Kuk Do – Chuck Norris’ personal martial arts system. Hopefully one day these students can become a black belt.”

Premier Martial Arts is located at 401 W. Martintown Road in suite 129. For more information on the after-school program, call 803-640-8443.
