After School Program


Children are faced with a variety of challenges at school, in peer groups and at home. Through our exclusive After School Program training, we aim to instill confidence and self-assurance in everyday decision-making. This program teaches that martial arts is about developing a strong mind and body; it is not about “fighting” alone.

At the same time, parents need safe, reliable transportation for their children to experience enriching programming that doesn’t disrupt hectic work days. We pick your children up from school and bring them to our dojo for class each weekday afternoon, so parents and caretakers enjoy a “one-stop shop” approach and uninterrupted evenings at home as a family — because their homework also gets done with us!

  1. A “Yes I Can,” positive, winning attitude: We are the only local program that equips children to find success at home, build confidence and perform academically through an unparalleled approach that turns the traditional after-care model on its head.
  2. Convenience and peace of mind: Our After School Program runs from 3-6 PM each and every weekday. Sensei Horne’s unique approach to afterschool programming brings real value and solves common family challenges within extra-curriculars; we pick them up and get them to our dojo so they’re ready to work and have fun. All you have to do is scoop them up after work and prepare for a more peaceful evening at home, sans homework-headaches.
  3. All-in-one physical and emotional development: New friends, new skills and new experiences — XS MAD combines each of these in a safe, growth-oriented environment that challenges and trains their bodies and minds. Students expel energy in a healthy, stimulating pattern, all while preparing them to approach responsibilities maturely.


We pick up from various schools in the Greater New Orleans area.

Absolutely! As long as you have a way of dropping them off at XS Martial Arts Dojo, they can enjoy all the benefits of our after-school program.

No, we only provide transportation from school to XS Martial Arts Dojo – we aren’t able to transport children back home.

Of course! We are a black belt school, which means that it’s our goal for every one of our students to earn their black belt. We do belt evaluations throughout the year, and during each of those periods, students have the opportunity to earn their next belt.

For the 2019-2020 school year, the after school program tuition is $129 per week, by automatic debit or credit card payments.

Absolutely! Each day’s schedule includes a large block of homework assistance time during which students can do homework.

No, we don’t offer pick-up service or the after-school program on half days or school holidays. However, if we are open that day and your child has a scheduled martial arts class, feel free to bring them in to take that class. Also, we usually offer a day camp during December for an additional fee.

We provide water but not snacks, so after-school students should bring food daily, or they can purchase snacks at our facility.

Unfortunately, not at this time.

After school Program will begin August 6, 2019. $125 Registration, $129 per week per student.
