GIVEAWAY (3 WINNERS!!!) and Review: Online Martial Arts Classes

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I was pretty excited to get the opportunity to  review the online classes of Martial Arts for Kids with my son. For the last year and a half he has been taking Tae Kwon Do classes through a community education program, but in the summer they don't offer them through community education and if I keep his preschool schedule next year as I have it set up, he won't be able to take it at all because the schedule is built around the school schedule of the community it is in, which is not where we live and it doesn't work with our school schedule. So, I thought this would be a good way for him to continue learning about martial arts in the flexibility of our home and around our schedule.

Our home is no stranger to online classes, we have done online classes for other things we want to learn. They are a great way to fit them to your own schedule and to work at your own pace.  With Martial Arts for Kids, you pay only $27 and you have lifetime access to 13 classes, a student handbook, and a Certificate of Completion when you are finished. My son is looking forward to being able to print off that Certificate and I assured him we had nice paper to print it on. He wants to show off and be proud of his accomplishment. Like I said, you can work at your own pace. What I haven't told you is that you can replay them over and over and over until you feel you have really mastered the technique. Or better yet, you can have multiple kids take the classes and play them over and over for them.

Some of the classes are quite short and some are the length of a traditional class that my son might take. The total length of all the classes does equal about what 5 classes are through the community education program and at about the same cost, but the benefit is that we can fit this in to our schedule this summer and next school year. This is a beginner class, so no prior knowledge is needed. I really like martial arts for my son because it teaches him respect, patience and how to control his own body.

Also, you can access these classes iPad, iPhone and Android, as well as on your computer.

I have the opportunity to award some of my readers, 3 of you to be precise, with your own FREE enrollment in the class. ENTER THE RAFFLECOPTER FORM BELOW!!!

I would love to have my 8 yr old daughter & maybe even my 4 yr old son take these classes. Having them available online is perfect for us since we live a bit out of the way from martial arts studios.

Oh, what a fantastic idea! We travel a lot, so these would be a great way to keep up with exercise :)

Looks like a great way to get a workout in, or get some PE in for homeschoolers like myself.
