WITH YOUR KIDS IN THE AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING?
You wonder how your kids are spending their free time while you’re finishing up your work day.
You want your child to make new friends and build healthy relationships.
Your child struggles with discipline and respect, and you want them to learn these core values.
BEING A PARENT IS NEVER EASY!
One of the biggest challenges of parenting is finding wholesome and fun activities for your kids to do after school. It’s especially important if you work and you know your kids will be unsupervised for several hours a day. You want to know where your kids are and what they’re doing – and you want them to be learning something and not just playing video games.
That’s where our after-school program comes in. Kids learn about martial arts, including the core tenets of respect, discipline, and perseverance, in a fun and social setting.
YOUR CHILD WILL GROW EVERY DAY!
Learning martial arts helps kids in many ways. It teaches them to respect themselves and others, and to persist when they have a goal in mind. It emphasizes the mind-body connection and helps them to discipline themselves without being reminded.

SAFE, POSITIVE PLACE TO SPEND AFTER-SCHOOL
Do your kids come home to an empty house after school because you’re at work? Instead of having them there by themselves, our after-school program gives them a fun and educational alternative.
When your kids are with us, they’re learning useful skills and spending time with other kids. You can rest easy knowing that they’re safe and sound.
MAKE NEW FRIENDS & HAVE FUN
Sometimes, kids struggle to make new friends. It can be hard to find others with common interests or to have the time to socialize at school.
Our after-school program is a social setting, a place where kids can share experiences while learning something new. Many of the kids who attend our programs end up being close friends.
LEARN RESPECT, DISCIPLINE, AND PERSISTENCE
Some after-school programs simply offer parents a place to send their kids without any other benefits. Ours is different.
Kids who study martial arts learn respect for themselves and others, discipline in the pursuit of goals, and the rewards of hard work – lessons that carry over to home, school, and beyond.
My kids started training at the Ottawa Academy of Martial Arts after meeting Sensei Hache at a Birthday Party. After watching them train for a year I decided to try it myself, although I had not every done a martial art before. Both my kids and I have grown enormously with the help of the teachers and the other students, physically, socially and emotionally.
The Ottawa Academy of Martial Arts is a pillar of the Ottawa community! For years they have been changing people’s lives and supporting the community! You should want your children to experience Professor Matt Hache and his unlimited passion for Martial Arts!
Excellent instructors and environment. Very good programs for kids and adults.
My daughter and I belong to an affiliate club of OAMA. One of the best decision of our lives was joining the club….it has transformed our lives. Being a part of OAMA and WCMA is like being a part of a much larger family…it’s our second home. The instructors are amazing; they truly care about your goals. Love it, love it, LOVE it!!
