From listening skills to taking turns, our program for ages 3-4 teach way more than physical skills! Your child will learn how to interact in a social setting, plus learn valuable life lessons that will help them as they grow.
There's nothing more satisfying than watching your 5-6 year old gain physical and social skills that you know will benefit them for life. Your little one will learn focus, self-confidence and discipline, while getting a full body work out. Preschool Martial Arts teach fantastic martial arts moves plus vital interpersonal skills.
Martial Arts is one of the best possible activities for children. They'll learn to defend themselves physically, but more importantly they'll build the mental and emotional skill sets necessary to conquer challenges like high school, college, and becoming a healthy, balanced adult.
Martial Arts is the perfect activity for teenagers! It gives them an outlet for their unique energy through engagement and gross motor skill activity, but at NEXTStep Martial Arts, they'll do it in a structured class designed and taught just for them.
Your child's After School hours matter, but if you're a working parent, options aren't just limited; they're often frustrating. But the high quality, movement-based After School childcare alternative at NEXTStep Martial Arts is exactly what you need!
Our unique Summer Camps are the perfect solution for your family. Whether you need an entire Summer of Care or just a few weeks of fun. Hands down the best Summer Camp you'll find!

The best in Gettysburg
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.
