Our program is designed to teach traditional martial arts, but do it in a way that is conducive to personal growth.
We start with STRUCTURE, helping the younger students learn how to listen and follow directions, especially helpful when it comes to preparing them for school, working with a group or team, or getting along with parents, teachers, coaches, and mentors. Our first goal is to get them to be disciplined and ready to learn.
Then, we utilize that structure to create EMOTION, so the kids will be excited to learn the kicking, punching, forms, self defense, and all the other aspect of the martial arts.
Then, we build their KNOWLEDGE, slowly and methodically, so they can demonstrate well what they have learned so that by the time they are a Black Belt, they will be a great role model, not only for technique, but also for character.
Finally, our Black Belts create a LEGACY by showing great Leadership to other students and within their community.
ATA Martial Arts communicates its message loud and clear every class: We want to create tomorrow’s leaders one black belt at a time. If you’re not sure how to communicate your message effectively, come try a class with us to gain confidence and find your voice, experience our Leadership program to learn how to put it into action, or speak with an instructor about how to help you achieve your specific goals.
