3 Important Events You Should Know About at ATA Martial Arts

Happy First Day of Summer! Today started our first official week of the ATA Summer Camp series. This week is our Nerf Training Camp. Drop in day spots are still available for all camps and full week spots are available for most camps. Camps are from 9AM-3PM Monday-Friday. Campers will receive class credit for attending camps and evening classes will resume as normal for everyone.

Next week is a HUGE week for the ATA Worldwide Family. It is the annual ATA World Tournament and Expo. The ATA WC instructors will participate in training courses and seminars, judging, competition, Mr. Denmark will be in the Tournament of Champions fighting for a World Champion title, and Mrs. Jouan will be testing for her 6th Degree Black Belt!

We will be closed Tuesday, June 28th-Monday, July 4th. Classes will resume Tuesday, July 5th. Enjoy your summer break and 4th of July Holiday.

Finally, we are starting 2nd stripes week this week.  Here’s what that means:

  • 2nd stripes (5th stripes also for brown-red/black belts) starts getting tested in class with a minimum of 10 classes
  • This stripe is known as the “practice” stripe since the material will need to be practiced enough that it can be performed without hesitation when asked
  • The stripe includes action oriented aspects of the training such as self-defense, sparring drills, board breaking, and fitness
  • The stripe can be earned at any time starting today until July 25th as long as the criteria are met
  • At this point if you do not have your 1st stripe yet, you may be a little bit behind and should think about make up classes where possible or private lessons.This should help keep you on track for the August belt promotions
  • Video clips and for additional at home training may be found at ATAPennsylvania.com under the member log in section which is Log In: ATA and Password: Strong

Remember, to stay focused on your goals during these beautiful summer months. Belt Promotion will be here before we know it on August 12th and 13th. See you this week for class!
