The best in New Orleans
Our programs were created for real family schedules. Convenient class times mean that kids, adults, and whole families can improve their quality of life without killing every moment of spare time.
Our positive atmosphere is contagious, and you'll know without a doubt that you're in a place where kids will learn positive habits and adults will make meaningful, lasting friendships.
All of our programs improve physical prowess, and that's important. But what's far more important is the mental and emotional benefits that our programs bring to everyday life.
Both kids and adults will gain flexibility, agility, and strength, even if they aren't athletic! They'll love it, because it's not only super fun, it’s inclusive and accommodating at every step.
New Orleans Kids agree:
Kids love classes at MOVE! Best Kids because they're unbelievably fun (but parents love them because they build benefits for life!)
Everything we do is intentionally structured based on our extensive experience. Kids at MOVE! Best Kids actually like the structure, because it makes them feel safe and cared for. They can trust deep down that they're safe to explore and challenge themselves.
We take kids’ emotions seriously. The culture at MOVE! Best Kids is one of inclusion - no cliques, no cool kids club, no unkind actions or attitudes. Kids love it because they always feel like they belong!
It's so much fun! At MOVE! Best Kids, we know that getting your child out of the house, in the car, and across town to an activity is a big deal. We guarantee that when they leave, it will have been 100% worth it, every time!
Programs built for real people
Our classes were designed specifically for the average person. You'll build skills step by step, without having to be a superstar to see improvement. But stick with it, and you'll see your abilities soar!
You'll will be surrounded by peers striving towards the same goals you are, day in, day out. You'll build friendships and be supported in your individual journey.
We've always known it, but now the science agrees: You must take time for your own mental health. Martial Arts helps you clear your mind, accomplish goals, and be more healthy, from the inside out.
It's more than just learning awesome looking moves - it's proprioception, balance, agility and more - physical skills that will remain with and benefit you for the rest of your life.
We send regular anonymous surveys to our members in our program. Here's a sample of the real feedback we get regularly:
Cannot say enough good things about Churches Karate Academy. Master Church not only teaches the class but makes sure that each individual person in the class understands all phases of what is being taught. They also offer summer camps and for all school holidays including Thanksgiving, Christmas, Mardi Gras, Easter, and Spring Break. They even had individual day camps for when the kids had snow days. I wouldn't given them 10 stars if it was available.
Master Church does a great job of teaching discipline and the fundamentals of martial arts to his students. The Academy has special events, summer camps, and movie nights that the students love. I would highly recommend CKA to anyone looking for a martial arts school.
MOVE! Best Kids is the favorite choice of New Orleans families for their childrens' and teens' physical, mental and emotional development Plus there’s no better facility for adults to improve their physical health and mental wellness. Schedule a trial today!
