Scholastic Martial Arts Karate In District Schools, a non-profit organization that works with Hillsborough County public school students, strives to instill preventative measures in our youth to avoid these common pitfalls – before they happen. But we need your help! We have been developing positive, proactive student skills for more than 15 years through non-contact physical education classes as well as programs that instill everything from self confidence and grit to gratitude and control. SMAKIDS has donated thousands of dollars to local PTAs and provided scholarships for low-income students.

SMAKIDS is a community-based, martial arts facility with official 501(C)3 nonprofit status. Long-time physical education teacher Roland Jackson founded the organization in 1999 as Scholastic Martial Arts. The SMAKIDS design is based on more than 15 years of research and development within Hillsborough County public schools. SMAKIDS’ curriculum is driven by real Florida Academic Standards. Our character program places a high concentration on academic success since it was created inside public schools and perfected with more than 3,000 students participating in our physical education martial arts program.
