Our Son Conner started at John Geyston's academy nearly 8 yrs ago. This is his thing, he loves it.
The training is truly amazing, it's helped Conner become confident in many aspects. The academy has been like family to us for many years. John & his staff take pride in all the students. We absolutely love John Geyston's academy & plan to spend many more years with them.

I've loved my fitness kickboxing experience! John knew my name when I arrived and made sure to see if I was comfortable the whole class. The instructors were so helpful and welcoming! Can not wait for the next class.

Are you struggling to come up with

something new and fun for your child’s birthday party?

You’re tired of the same old ideas and you want to do more than hit the party store to buy themed napkins.

You’re busy with work and other obligations and you don’t have the time to spend hours planning an elaborate party.

You want a party atmosphere that’s fun and safe for kids – and where you have some help supervising them.

Planning your child’s birthday party can feel more like work than fun


You have to assemble a guest list, buy decorations and a cake, plan activities, accommodate adult guests, and deal with a house full of over-excited kids.

Instead of taking everything on your shoulders, it’s time to try something different this time. Provide your child with the kind of birthday party that they’ll remember for years to come – and that their friends will remember, too.

The perfect solution for busy parents

Martial arts-themed birthday parties are the perfect solution for busy parents. We’ll do most of the planning for you, and provide you with a safe, fun environment where your kids and their friends can learn some basic martial arts moves and experience the thrill of being in a real martial arts school.

Kids have an outlet for their birthday energy

Rain or shine, your child’s birthday party in our martial arts school will provide them with a healthy way to burn off excess energy and deal with the excitement of the day.

Let us do the heavy lifting

You’ll have to decide who to invite and do a few other things, but we’ll handle the bulk of the planning. You can show up knowing that your child will have plenty to do!

Leave the set-up and clean-up to us

Setting up for (and cleaning up after) a kids’ birthday party can eat up your entire day. When you let us host your party, you can leave all of that to us – so you can relax and enjoy your child’s special day.

Education and fun wrapped into one

Martial arts-themed birthday parties are great fun whether your child has studied martial arts before or not. We’ll provide some basic instruction and fun activities – and your child and their friends will learn something new while having a blast.

Our son attends the youth classes here and it has made a world of difference in him. He has so much more confidence in himself and really enjoys the academy. The staff is fantastic!

Our son Braden has been a student of Hanshi John Geyston since 2010. The knowledge, skills, and mental attitude he has obtained in that time is amazing. We are grateful to Hanshi John and all of his instructors. They are not only great teachers but great role models. The academy is wonderful. The youth program is outstanding.

My son, Skyler (age 6) is very into sports, but unsure which he wanted to pursue. We did the 6 week program--not knowing what to expect. We were treated like family from the first time we walked in the doors. The instructors had the children engaged and focused the whole time. It is a very well structured class. As a parent, it was fascinating how much my son learned in such a short time--while having a great time doing so. The opportunity to earn the attitude stripes --encouraged both respect and extra nightly reading at home ---another plus! He loved going each week. If our schedules weren't so busy, we would be full timers! If you or your child are even slightly interested in martial arts, I would absolutely recommend trying this academy. Nothing but a positive experience for us!

My son Carder started here late last year and is still new to karate but I have seen such a difference in his attitude, commitment to things he starts, and the way he handles his responsibilities. I love the fact that he gets excited every day about karate but also understands that we don't use karate to fight or show off but as needed and in a respectful manner. Thank you to all the amazing teachers and staff at JGMAA for giving my son a great example and another role model in his life!

4 Tips on Building Your Child's Confidence


How much of the planning will I have to do?

We can’t decide who to invite, and there are a few other details that you’ll need to be involved in, but we’ll take care of planning activities, providing supervision and instruction, and handling the set-up and clean-up for the party.

Who will be supervising the party? I don’t want my child’s friends’ parents to be worried.

Experienced martial arts instructors will be on hand to make sure that kids learn in a safe and carefully supervised environment.

My child loves martial arts but I’m not sure about their friends. Will they have fun, too?

Of course! Even kids who have never studied martial arts can find something to love at our parties. They might discover that they have a real gift for kicking and punching (in a controlled environment.)

I don’t want my child to learn that violence is acceptable. Won’t giving them a martial arts party make them think it’s okay to be aggressive?

Not at all. Martial arts instruction teaches that students must respect instructors, one another, and themselves. We never encourage aggression in or out of our martial arts school.

I’m worried that my child will be bored. Is the whole party like a martial arts class?

No. Basic martial arts instruction is part of the fun, but we also provide kids with fun activities and games during the party. Nobody will be bored.

What if my child decides they want to take martial arts classes after the party?

We’d be thrilled to have your child as a student. We can provide you with information about age-appropriate classes to take home and review at the end of the party – and the same goes for your child’s friends’ parents, too.
