HELP!
My son lost his invitation to Audrey's birthday party today. All I know is that its at 3pm.
They're in the red belt class if you have any info.
I had just came back from my appointment to a white van delivering flowers. I want to thank my dojo family from the bottom of my “kata heart” Wow I really do appreciate this. I needed this. You guys are the best! I’m so glad to be a part of the dojo. ❤️🥲
Open Tuesday? no one picking up phone? so I think closed for snow?
Hello, everybody! This is Zareen’s grandma. Her birthday is Friday the 30th. She is turning 9. Her family is in quarantine and she cannot have a birthday party. We are hoping some of you can assist us in a birthday drive-by. We will assemble in the back parking lot of JRC at 5:30 pm and drive by her house at 5:45. Please come join us. (We may be able to gather in her yard to sing happy birthday to her)
Mr. Grant and Miss Emily do such a fantastic job training future ninjas. Zoe loved her "try out" lesson! 🥋
Hello JKA family members! This week is our final push to gather Christmas gifts for our adopted families. There are still about 30 tags on the tree, which represent gifts for needy children right here in a Juneau. We’ll be sorting and delivering the gifts on Saturday afternoon at 1:00. Please consider donating a gift or two if you are able, and make this holiday season a little brighter for some deserving kiddos. Questions? Contact me at 209-9884.
We had a fantastic Mother’s Day self-defense class! A very happy Mother’s Day eve to all the moms out there! #JKAFamily #JKAProud

Better grades are possible (MUST READ)!

We’ve seen it time and time again…

A child comes in with behavioral issues, they’re not listening to their parents or teachers so well, their grades aren’t the best…

This is NOT a bad kid. Their behavior is holding them back from achieving greatness.

So we address the behavior with our Child Greatness martial arts program. With every kick, punch, and ninja move that our instructors teach our kids, they’re secretly sneaking in life lessons like respect, discipline, and focus.

This child will learn how to be patient with themselves, how to PERSEVERE, how to focus on a goal that they set and eventually get, and feel amazing going through the ranks of martial arts.

And eventually, their grades improve.

They listen better.

And they feel confident in themselves like never before.

This is the power of martial arts! And we’ve seen it dozens of times.

If your child is behaving poorly, they’re NOT a bad kid. They just need some help. And that’s our goal- to help every kid in our community be the best versions of themselves that they can be.

Check out our Child Greatness program to learn more:

Spotlight on: Halyee! 👏

Haylee is 10 years old and has completed her red belt!

We’re highlighting Haylee this month because she is a fantastic example of what a young girl can be our dojo.

She is super focused and works hard everyday towards her goals. She has a great smile and is an encourager to others in our dojo. Our teachers and students really enjoy training with her and watching her grow :>

Her mom, Janelle, says:

“Haylee has become such a hard worker and has shown great dedication in her karate training and her school work! Her confidence has blossomed in all areas of life. She is growing to become a beautiful, talented, and smart young lady. I am so proud of her!”

We are too!
