Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off church "cover" school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

Jan. 5 & 7, Montgomery: FREE Homeschool Martial Arts Class


My name is Bill Boutwell and I am the co-owner and lead instructor of Montgomery Martial Arts. During the past several years we have received numerous request to add a Homeschool specific time slot to our class schedule. We are pleased to announce that we now have the resources and staff available to do so. I'm writing to ask if you would consider sharing the info with your members and adding our site, www.montgomerymartialartsonline.com to your site resources.

On Monday January the 5th , and Wednesday January the 7th, we will be offering homeshcool trial classes at 1:30 PM. The classes are 1 hour long and designed for ages 7 and up. Ages 4-6 may participate ONLY with parental assistance. These classes are offered at no cost & no commitment and are an excellent opportunity for both parent and child to experience the program first hand and determine their level of interest.

We are a Christian based martial arts academy, and I am a former non-denominational missionary with a B.S. in Theology. Our mission from our conception has always been twofold: 2) To teach martial arts, and 2) To disciple others in a “third place” environment. We end every class with a simple prayer, strive to make ourselves accessible to others, and endeavor to exemplify Jesus in all our business practices.

Please take a look at our website and Facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/pages/Montgomery-Martial-Arts/784732391545880?ref=bookmarks ). If you have any question, please do not hesitate to call.

Thank you for your consideration. I hope to hear from you soon!

Kind Regards,
Bill Boutwell

Homeschool Program
At Montgomery Martial Arts, we understand the difficult choices that parents must make these days in raising their children.  With homeschool families, these choices are even more complicated; curriculum, socialization, character development, physical fitness, exposure to art & culture, and all compounded by financial constraints and time management issues.  Notwithstanding, it is our firm belief that a solid martial arts program allows you to consolidate several of these choices in to one box.
Our homeschool program allows your child the opportunity to develop their social skills in a safe and fun environment; all the while learning a proven and effective system of self-defense.  The added physical benefits they will receive are: coordination, balance, speed, and strength. Mentally they will learn to listen, focus, perform, and lead others to do the same.  The ability to defend one’s self gives a person a sense of confidence and self-esteem that simply cannot be found elsewhere.  Most importantly, we would never empower an individual with potentially lethal skills without instilling integrity, respect, and compassion for others.
The system your child will learn is based on Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and enhanced with Krav Maga.   What we teach is far different than the katas and forms of Karate and Taekwondo.  Everything we do is geared toward practical street survival, not belt promotions and trophies.  Our system is hands on and extremely physical, thus requiring far greater fitness than other styles of martial arts.  We will teach your child how to use leverage, balance and weight distribution to subdue larger and stronger assailant, and even ward off multiple attackers.
This class is specifically designed for homeschool children ages 7 and up.  Ages 4-6 may participate ONLY with parental assistance.  The cost is $65 per month for the 1st child, $55 for additional siblings, or $180 per family. (These special rates are introductory and apply to the homeschool class only!). Homeschool classes consist of two 1 hour classes per week. A $25 Registration is required per family.
