The Martial Arts and Athletic Center offers the most unique child care opportunity in Amarillo. Since 2002, Grandmaster Mike Lister has set the highest standards in child care and development by combining child care with martial arts training, providing children with the tools to succeed in the classroom, at home, as well as in life.
The MAAC’s curriculum is based upon the ancient principles of Tae Kwon Do. These principles along with daily physical training will instill qualities such as respect, honesty, and integrity. This core curriculum resonates in all aspects of the MAAC program. Whether it be, martial arts training or arts and crafts, discipline, respect, and self-control are always being observed.
Licensed by the state of Texas as a child care facility, the MAAC exceeds the state's’ child care standards. All instructors and child care workers are subject to background checks, FBI finger printings and are hired based on their ability to lead, teach, as well as care for children. The safety, care, and education of our children is the MAAC’s top priority.
