In our programs, good habits are created for life! We like to say, Leaders 4 Life. Taekwondo training with St Louis ATA Martial Arts, will give your child the skills they need to be successful at school and at home. We do this by consistency in our class training and repetition with respect to show the students the focal points needed to create a sharper mind. Taekwondo creates better grades! Better grades come from a student that has good self discipline, one that will still complete their homework even when their favorite TV show is on or their game controller is calling their name. Self Discipline is taught in our programs through structured classes and learning order. While all of these amazing life changes are occurring, our students have FUN in class! Our curriculum is based on a practical application process, students will be able to visualize how each block, strike, or movement could be applied to help them get out of a dangerous situation. Alright, enough about the program! We can put the program into words but until you or your child have been apart of the experience you will never be able to fully understand! Give any of our locations a call TODAY to get your child on the path to SUCCESS! Give them the tools necessary to become a LEADER 4 LIFE!
"ATA is simply... INCREDIBLE!!! My kids and I have been training since June of 2011 and we love it. All three of us are in a leadership program working towards our black belts. They offer a wide variety of training and fitness classes, seminars and great community activities. The owners, instructors, and staff are all family and you get that welcome feeling from the moment you walk in... like you're joining a warming family. And in reality, you are."
"Our family attends classes here (me, our 5 year old son, and our 7 year old daughter) and we love it! They've far exceeded our expectations in every way. They absolutely practice what they preach and the classes are the perfect combination of hard work, discipline and just as important (especially for the kids), fun! Thank you for everything you do, we couldn't be happier."
I love what the ATA team is doing! I have seen so many families lives change by applying the principles that ATA teaches. Keep up the good work, you're changing the community!
"Our son has been in ATA's program for 6 months. He started a week after his 4th birthday and under Mr. Lee's guidance he has learned to be respectful of his peers, teachers, and family. The same child who used to bounce off the walls now bows into the mat and sits in place until class begins.
Every ATA event is well planned and focused thanks to the organization of Ms. Kylie. The curriculum is well balanced with life lessons like perseverance and self-discipline. Mr. Lee has a gift of strict kindness and professionalism."
"My son has been attending ATA Martial Arts in Rock Hill for a year now. Mr. Lee, Ms. Kylie, and Mr. James are awesome. Mr. Lee has a way with the kids that is strict and respectful, and the children take to that with ease. I have noticed a great change in my son's behavior at home, at school, and in public. The classroom is kept at attention and the instructors are really wonderful with the kids. Mr. Lee instructs the students in such a way that they can take what they learned in class and adapt it to the real world. Instead of bursting through doors and running off, my son will look behind him and hold the door open for others. The best thing I've seen come out of my son's first full year at ATA is a greater sense of self-respect, as well as more respect for his brother, myself, his peers, and elders."
