Kickstart Kids remains committed to delivering high-quality martial arts training and character-building lessons inside public schools to empower youth with character, resiliency, and community. Kickstart Kids is adhering to current CDC and TEA guidelines and following district and school protocols and procedures as we update our curriculum, instructional approach and training methods to ensure safe learning environments for the upcoming school year.
The KSK Virtual Academy will include synchronous virtual learning environments and a continuously updated library of martial arts training videos, values curriculum content, lesson plans, and instructional resources that can be accessed anytime online by instructors and students.
Martial arts instruction is effective in a virtual environment because it is a structured, guided workout that can be practiced almost anywhere without the need for special equipment or teammates. Through the KSK Virtual Academy students can connect with their instructor and peers in a fun, positive environment.
Within every child is the power to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more. Following in the vision of our founder Chuck Norris, we believe that power can be unlocked through the martial arts. Since our inception, Kickstart Kids has impacted the lives of more than 105,000 students.
