We at Just For Kicks are devoted to developing our students into strong and confident leaders, as well as solid martial artists. We accomplish this through our character development program. In a teaching system based on mutual respect, classes focus not only on physical activity, but also on the life skills necessary to be a successful, productive member of society.
Just For Kicks is also strongly tied to the local community.
We run programs for the local Boy & Girl Scout troops, the Fishkill Correctional Facility, the Local Police Departments, the local elementary schools in both the Beacon City & Wappingers Central School District's. Just For Kicks is the Town of Fishkill Recreation Department’s choice for Martial Arts in the Hudson Valley. We are also very involved with many local daycare centers and local summer camps - including all four Town of Wappingers Summer Camps and both Town of Fishkill Summer Camps.
Just For Kicks is also very involved in local charity work.
We run fund raisers throughout the year for Toys for Tots, The Fishkill Food Pantry, Project Action (Juvenile Crime Prevention), Special Olympics, Dutchess County ARC and the American Cancer Society. Just For Kicks has been a Major Sponsor for the last 4 years at the Cancer Society’s Step Into Spring Event.
We also pride ourselves on the professionalism of our staff.
Our teaching staff is dedicated to producing the highest quality of instruction. They are all Certified black belts and are all multiple-time US National Champions. Instructors receive over 100 hours a year of ongoing training in martial arts instruction and in our character development program, as well as being CPR & First Aid Certified.
