  • Adrian Ellis Adrian Ellis President, Winning Karate
    I've been teaching martial arts for over 40 years and I have worked with some of the great minds in the industry. Jim' King's TASMA Program is simple and easy to follow but, what's great is he has always been available to discuss any issues me or my staff have. We have tripled our numbers and continue to see amazing growth. I would highly commend anyone consider after school program or summer camp karate, get this program
  • Master Will Schneider Master Will Schneider President/CEA Elite Martial Arts & Fitness
    The TASMA program is a must do for school owners.  I have two locations (possibly more in the future) and I highly recommend it.  The weekly, monthly, and yearly cash flow is excellent; and is a must have service for parents.  Master King and his staff are always very friendly and great to work with.  I’ve visited his location many times and it works! Feel free to contact me for any further questions about this great program.
  • Heidi Chapman Heidi Chapman President, Pak's Karate
    We have been in the martial arts business for over 20 years and have had an after school program for the past 10 years. The first 2 of those years I spent stumbling around trying to figure out how to create the program and make it profitable. And then I discovered Jim King and the turnkey TASMA program. Our success rate has been solid now since we began following the TASMA program and Jim King has been indispensable in assisting us in navigating the world of state daycare laws. Shihan King has personally gone to bat for us in regards to contacting our state officials to make sure that we were legal to operate our program in our state. There are so many other “after school martial arts programs” that will show you how to attract students but none of them will show you how to preserve that program and keep you out of trouble with your state. I have no reservations in recommending Jim King and the TASMA program for any martial arts school owner who wants to start an after school program the right way!
  • Marshal Gagne Marshal Gagne President, Marshall Gagne Hapkido
    I am Grandmaster Marshall Gagne with over 45 years in the martial art. I have spent my whole life teaching professionally. If it wasn’t for Jim King’s after school program I would have went under years ago - especially after 2001 in Michigan.   He has become my best friend and advisor and I am proud to say I fed my family and raised my kids on the after school and summer camp and never missed a payroll in about 20 years.  If you’re struggling to keep your doors open his programs are the best for our society and the best for having a good income.
  • Milin Desai Milin Desai President, Mil's Karate
    When I decided to open up my own school I knew I wanted to have an After School Program and I knew I would go to Mr. King for the TASMA. With no knowledge of the business side of the Martial Arts school I was able to follow step by step instructions on starting an After School Program.  Mr. King was very helpful in answering any questions and help with any issues I had.

1. Are you teaching more but not earning more?

FAQ

What is TASMA? +

Since its launch in the mid-1990s, the Transported After School Martial Arts program (TASMA) has been the gold standard of after school programs. There is no program in the martial arts that will enroll more students and create more income than the TASMA program. We will show you how.

Who Needs TASMA? +

Families need TASMA! There will always be children who absolutely MUST be in daycare, extended day at school or with a babysitter after school. Why not have them at your school learning a talent and skill while paying you 3 to 6 times what regular students pay?

I Don’t Want to Be a Baby Sitter +

This is not baby sitting or daycare. This is a regular martial arts program that is taught five days a week after-school. The kids advance in rank, pay test fees, spar with equipment, and learn how to be leaders.

Is There Really a Market for This? +

TASMA worked 25-years ago and it will work 25-years from now because working parents will always need to have their children somewhere after school. The choice is running around a chaotic playground or daycare or learning martial arts at your school.

What is the Difference Between my Regular Kids Class and TASMA? +

To a family, regular martial arts classes are a luxury and an expensive one at that. Kids don’t need to take martial arts, they want to. Then, just as fast, they want to quit.

TASMA is a necessity for families. Kids have to be supervised after school. They will end up at a daycare or someone else’s after-school program. Why not yours

What About Transportation? +

Transportation is the backbone of the TASMA program. There are several ways to accomplish this and we will show you the safest, most cost effective way to get your students from their school to your school.

The TASMA Advantage +

Jim King’s TASMA has been showing schools how to increase income and profits while decreasing their workload. No one has the long-term track record of success in helping martial arts schools plan, launch, and operate a highly profitable after-school program.

Do I Have to Do TASMA Full Time? +

You are welcome to keep teaching your evening classes. After all, it’s your business. However, you may at some point want to just focus on TASMA as a way to reduce your teaching hours and free up your weekends by earning more money for less time.

Do I Have to Call My Program TASMA? +

While many owners use the TASMA acronym and association to created a more professional and nationally connected image, you are not required to use the TASMA name in your branding or marketing.

What is the Difference in Tuition? +

As you can see with our TASMA Income Calculator at the top of this page, you can make 3 - 6 times your regular tuition with TASMA. After-school students pay WEEKLY. Regular students pay MONTHLY. Which would you prefer, $149 a month or $79 per week?

What about Summertime and Other School Breaks? +

Downtime at public schools creates additional income opportunities for you. You have a captive market for a summer camp, fall break, and Christmas break. Because these breaks are full days, we will show you how you can easily charge $130 - $170 per week, depending on your market.

How Much Room Do I Need? +

You can project that you need about 1,000 square feet per 40 students. Most schools already have this in place. One of the advantages of the TASMA is that you don’t need a high profile location. Parents will find you because they need you.

What About Competitors? +

As a TASMA client, your competition is daycare and not other martial arts schools. We will show you how to elevate your program above all after-school programs in your area. It’s all in the marketing and the quality of service your provide. We’ll show you how to be five star in each.
