My son is 8 and has been studying with Mr. D for just under a year. In addition to the confidence boost and increase in self control I've seen in my son, observing the class has given me parenting tips that I use all the time as well. Any school can teach form. But THIS school teaches discipline for kids and parents alike. Highly recommend.




 The classes are a great workout while keeping at the kids' skill levels. The instructors work hard to keep the children engaged and it shows. I've seen definite improvement in my son since he's been attending!

  Imagine Your Child As A Confident, Strong, Self-Assured Leader In Fact, Lets Not Imagine. Lets Make It Happen, Together.



First, A Note From Our Instructor:

Hi, my name is Carlos L. Des Jardin, owner of Eatontown Martial Arts, OK. I want to take a moment to welcome you to our website and to say THANK YOU for considering our Martial Arts for your child. I've taught kids martial arts classes for years and as you can imagine, I've seen every kind of personality you can think of in a child. Rambunctious, shy, defiant, complacent...every child is different, with special gifts to give and challenges to overcome, and I've seen Martial Arts classes help every single one of them find their inner strength, peace, and focus.

We've seen ultra-shy kids burst out of their shell, ADD and ADHD kids learn how to control themselves, socially awkward kids learn how to make and keep friends, and even helped special needs children find a place to fit in and feel accepted. So, what I'll do on this page is tell you a little about what our focus is in our classes, and what methods we use to achieve our results. Take a look at what we do, and see if our philosophy on the Martial Arts mat lines up with your goals as a parent, and if what we teach would be beneficial in your child's life. Again, THANK YOU for considering our Martial Arts - it was literally the BEST thing that ever happened to me and I know it's possible that it could be the same for your child.

Our Philosophy?

Ever see an old martial arts movie where the Instructor barks and yells like a drill sergeant?  We could teach that way if we wanted.  In fact, in the past we used too.  But we don't anymore!  With children our approach is more like the USMC meets Sesame Street!  Its FUN!

Here at EMA we are as serious as need be about what we want from our students.  We do want them to push themselves to improve in all aspects of the art.  We expect nothing less than a student's best effort and for our students to show expertise and skill consummate with their training level.  We firmly believe that this can be done in a fun atmosphere where students can enjoy coming to class.  The more students enjoy class, the more they will come to class.  Time and repetition are the students best teachers.  What we do is make it fun and exciting for them!

Benefits of Training!

Increased Fitness - Our workouts help lead to a healthier lifestyle that will lead to weight loss, body conditioning, stamina, and increased endurance.  Whether you had a hard day at work, home or school, a workout like ours relieves stress while you have fun doing it and thats a big plus!

Build Self Confidence - Healthy people radiate self-confidence in every aspect of their lives.  Adults with self-confidence succeed at work while children with self-confidence succeed in the classroom.  With this confidence they have a A+ attitude with school work.  The life lessons students learn on the mat while working out will help them deal with most daily problems.  Parents, Self Confidence more than anything else keeps the bullies at bay!


Meet New & Exciting People - While working out, you will meet a lot of new and exciting people.  Working out next to your friend makes it more social and fun. Instead of seeing your work out as a chore, you will find that you enjoy the social setting while training along with and making new friends.


No Knuckle Heads - We have a family friendly attitude where anyone in any shape can start and progress.   Yes, we have talented, experienced and confident students and instructors.  However, our inclusive atmosphere ensures you are never left out of the fun.  We do not allow any negative or aggressive behavior, nor any misuse of MartialArts in any way, shape or form in or out of our school - NO Knuckle Heads!


Take Class with Fun and Respectful Instructors - All of our instructors are professionally trained and nationally certified.  We understand that everyone is at a different fitness level and in every class; we adapt our drills to your fitness level.  We understand your goals and strive to help all ages to achieve their best in a positive environment.


Learn Self Defense Skills - In addition to learning how to kick and punch, students in our program are exposed to self-defense techniques from various disciplines that are practiced repeatedly for effectiveness.  You just don?t simply take one seminar or clinic and assume that you know self-defense.  The self-defense skills that we will teach you will develop over time.  For the parents out there, yes we will teach your child how to handle the bully physically in all manner of ways that many times do not escalate the situation.


We are part of a National Organization of United Schools ? Eatontown Martial Arts is a member of Taekwondo United, a national co-op organization with member schools all across the United States.  All TU schools adhere to similar guidelines and procedures, including standards by which we teach and advance students in rank. TU has established a national reputation built upon trust and our standard of excellence in the field of martial arts.
