The ATA works to create leaders through martial arts training and enforcing life skills such as respect, discipline, loyalty, and courtesy. Our martial arts programs span from ages 3 through adults and include topics such as child safety, stranger danger, anti-bullying, leadership skills, self defense, rape prevention as well as traditional Taekwondo. We hope that the combination of training in physical strength and growth and valuable life skills will lead students to personal successes in life inside the classroom and beyond. Parents have found our top quality instruction has improved their children's behavior in school as well as gained a greater sense of self esteem through the teachings of integrity, dedication and perseverance they learned in their Taekwondo training.  Adults have found a greater sense of confidence as they learn to protect themselves in a variety of situations.

ATA Martial Arts schools participate actively in the community to show its strong belief in helping people develop a healthy mind and body as well as greater sense of self.  For more information regarding the ATA, please visit the national website  ATA schools and clubs are independently owned and operated.


Tigers Ages 3-6

The ATA Tiger program was developed specifically for preschool age children ages 3-6. This program offers children a strong foundation in essential character qualities such as courtesy, respect, and discipline. In addition, the program is designed to improve children's motor skills and enhance their ability to pay attention and follow directions. All classes are taught using the most safe, fun, and exciting instruction methods available for this age group.

Karate for Kids Ages 7-16

There are many reasons for kids to become involved in Martial Arts. We have developed a program based on traditional Taekwondo for kids. The Karate for Kids system is based on a lifetime learning concept in addition to technical skills. The building blocks for our system are goals, self- confidence, attitude, Integrity, Friendship, confidence, self-awareness, self-esteem, perseverance, self-improvement, respect, and dedication.

Adult Martial Arts

Our adult and teen students acquire a strong foundation in the basics to enhance their physical capabilities and maximize their self-defense skills. Our students learn exactly what it takes, mentally and physically, to defend themselves or their loved ones should the need ever arise. We are not interested in just teaching self-defense, we are interested in the complete personal development of each student.


A slim, tone and healthy body is one of the most visible rewards of serious Taekwondo training. ATA has been helping Americans young and not-so-young buck the 'overweight' trend for many years, resulting in better health and quality of life. For millions of others, though, the obesity problem has been inescapable and the situation has worsened to the current level of health crisis.
