  • Tai-Chi & Taoist Longevity: This is for students who have little interest in martial arts but wants to benefit from Taoist theories of following nature and cultivating energy.

Each system consists of 6 sections. It takes an average of two years to learn the basics of each system and achieve a 1st degree Black Belt. During the course of regular, weekly study, all the skills are developed. However, each section can be studied via intense private or seminar study.

Soccer at Manhattan Kickers FC - Pier 40 Manhattan Kickers FC - Pier 40 1 Photo 1 Video

Our goal as a coaching staff is to develop each player individually so that they can progress through the levels of the Manhattan Kickers Football Club (ages 4-12) and into MLS Academies or our affiliate club, Metropolitan Oval (ages 13-18). 

We train at least three times during the week from September through June using a curriculum that focuses intensely on individual ability and game intelligence.Practice sessions aim to develop individual technique including dribbling, passing, shooting, and tactics (decision-making).

On weekends, the players ages 5-8 will participate in small-sided games (4v4, 3v3, 2v2) in a low-pressure environment where the focus is on utilizing the skills that were honed in training. We are strictly focused on player development (both short- and long-term) and not concerned with competition until the players are ready. In the small-sided environment, the players will have more exposures to the ball as well as be an active participant in a match. Players ages 9-12 will play games against local competition.

MKFC's club teams (U6-U11) have a 10-month season running from late August through late June. For ages U4 and U5, the club offers a seasonal Little Kickers program as well as satellite programs in Queens and Brooklyn. During the summer, the club offers MKFC camps as well as affiliate camps.
