Almost all of our normal routines were suddenly disrupted, and we’ve all been forced to make changes, both parents and kids alike.

But it’s been an especially big impact on our kids lives. They’re used to playing and having fun with other kids.

Nearly all of their normal activities that involved socially interacting with their peers and getting exercise came to a screeching halt, and many of those activities have not yet resumed.
It’s safe to say that none of us expected this situation to last as long as it has, and at this point many kids are desperately in need of new activities that are considered safe within the pandemic situation we’re dealing with.

If kids can't safely get together for all the sports, activities, and social fun they used to participate in, then what’s the solution?

kids need something fun to be a part of

especially during a pandemic with stay at home lockdowns

They need something FUN & ENGAGING to focus their mental energy on, as well as a way to express and burn off all that physical energy.

This is a FUN & INTERACTIVE program, not just a series of training videos to watch.

I know what you’re thinking… “But Johnny, there’s already hundreds of martial arts training videos for free on YouTube!”

Yes, there are.

If you want to just watch a bunch of martial arts videos and hope you end up learning some real techniques, you can easily do that on YouTube, all day long, completely for free.

This is a mentorship program, not a series of training videos.

You’ll have milestones to hit, evaluations to pass, and new belts to achieve (yes, you’ll actually receive each new belt in the mail).

When you set out on your road to blackbelt, you’ll have to make sure to be prepared to pass an exam once every three months to advance to your next belt!

To make sure you’re prepared for your exams, your mentor will be checking in with you directly every single week!

You’ll have worksheets to complete and techniques to demonstrate by video upload to your very own Online Student Portal, which is where all your interaction and communication with your mentor takes place.

Don't set out on the journey to black belt alone!

Your child’s odds of success and overall fun and enjoyment will be much higher as a result of working with their mentor.

We’ve found that if we offer online martial arts training videos alone, that most students quickly lose interest and enthusiasm, as they feel like they’re going through it by themselves.

Don't set out on the journey to black belt alone!

Your child’s odds of success and overall fun and enjoyment will be much higher as a result of working with their mentor.

We’ve found that if we offer online martial arts training videos alone, that most students quickly lose interest and enthusiasm, as they feel like they’re going through it by themselves.

here's a breakdown of the program...

our mentors provide massive accountability

Your child’s mentor will provide accountability and emotional support for when things get tough and they want to quit. Your child will have someone to hold them accountable to the achievement of their goals, and to teach them how to overcome obstacles in life without giving up.

weekly check-ins & monthly video evaluations

Each week will consist of a new martial arts training class to watch, and new techniques to practice. Your child’s mentor will be checking in to provide positive feedback and support every week.

Then, at the end of each month, your child will complete a demonstration of the martial arts techniques they’ve learned by uploading a video submission to their student portal for evaluation by their mentor.

This is a fantastic way to bring more accountability into your child’s life, along with ongoing time management and goal setting skills, as they must manage to complete their class lessons and learn the techniques in time to submit their video evaluation at the end of each month.

prepare to earn a new belt once every three months!

Every third month your child must be prepared to pass an evaluation via video submission in order to advance to their next belt color. Each time they pass this quarterly exam, their new belt will arrive in the mail.

goal setting is an important skill to carry into adulthood

The process of earning each belt will allow your child to learn goal setting with guidance from their mentor. This will expose your child to short term, mid-term, and long term goal setting, while making them aware of exactly where they are now and where they are going next on their journey to advance through the belts.

After just one year of having to plan to be prepared to pass a quarterly exam, we expect that you’ll see a significant difference in your child’s overall sense of responsibility in their day to day life!

the support, encouragement, accountability & feedback provided by your mentor is PRICELESS! 

After well over a decade of providing martial arts training for kids in our studio here in Richmond, British Columbia, we’ve seen what works and what doesn’t for kids trying to learn martial arts.

When we noticed some students struggling to keep up with everything, we implemented mentors for them to work with directly. As soon as we did this we very quickly saw our students' progress and results skyrocket!

interact directly with your mentor in your online student portal

Your online student portal is where students and mentors interact and communicate with each other. Students will receive continued positive feedback and encouragement as they upload their completed video assignments, completed worksheets, and advance in the ranks towards their next belt.

Your child will never feel like they’re doing this alone, or that they don’t know what to do next. The consistent communication from their mentor has been shown to keep them on track and help them reach their goals!

your child can train whenever it fits your schedule, with training classes on demand

All training classes are available on demand, which means your child can participate in class whenever it fits into your schedule, morning or night. We know our students have busy lives and families, and not everyone can make it to attend our Zoom classes when they are broadcast live.

Training classes on demand are a lot more flexible and less stressful for busy families than having to make sure your child is ready to attend a live class at a specific time.

Just click “play” and train away!

get some exercise while having fun with our virtual games library

Our virtual games library is a way for your child to follow along to a fun little exercise session and burn off some of that extra energy! Especially with Covid lockdowns, our children need to continue to learn new ways to move their bodies, get some exercise, burn off some of that energy, and keep the happy brain chemicals like endorphins flowing.

win prizes along the way!

We have prizes that are awarded for putting in all the hard work and successfully completing assignments along the way. These act as rewards and incentives for children to be excited and continue on their journey.

parents & kids attend our quarterly seminars together

Our quarterly seminars are perfect for parents and kids to attend together, and learn some wholesome and valuable lessons. We spend time on important topics such as how to deal with bullies, and other life challenges your child may end up facing.

parents can chat with our instructors & other parents in our private facebook group 

All of our parents will be granted access to our private Facebook group that we created specifically for parents to have a direct line of communication with not only our instructors, but also with other parents.

train & grow with students your own age!

Our programs are broken down into age-specific groups, so your child will be among their peers and not either overwhelmed by being with older children, or bored by being in a program that is too easy for them.

no long term Commitment. cancel anytime if it's not a good fit for your child

We understand that martial arts and our mentorship program may not be for everyone. If your child doesn’t end up loving it, and is not excited to continue, then it’s no problem at all. The program is billed on a month-to-month basis, and you can simply cancel anytime.

6th degree black belt in taekwon-Do & founder of richmond martial arts

In 2007 Johnny Decided It Was Time To Begin Giving Back To The Martial Arts Community That Had Such A Profound Impact On His Own Life

He located a top notch facility, and opened Richmond Martial Arts in Richmond, British Columbia, to begin teaching and training the local students.

Class attendance grew rapidly, and soon enough Johnny

needed to hire a team of trainers.

Now, 14 years later, Johnny's career in Martial Arts is more fulfilling than ever before as he is able to make an impact on the lives of more and more students!
