As a mom of a 9 year old boy who coins himself as "not athletic", I have been amazed at how he has taken to Taekwondo. The teachers have been extremely sensitive and supportive of our child's needs and development. Since joining the school and being invited into the Leadership program, our son's confidence in his physical abilities has taken off. Now, he sees himself as a leader and model for others, not only at karate, but in all areas of his life. He has taken the skills he practices in class and applied them to his schoolwork and the way he treats others. We are thrilled that we took the leap and tried that 4 week free class. ATA Karate Denver has become part of our extended family!
"There are so many options when choosing a martial arts school. However, if you want to be taught Integrity, Honor,Values & Loyalty then look no further! ATA Karate Denver has some of the best instructors in the business and they are completely inspirational. They have had an amazing impact on our family and we look forward to earning our Black Belts with them!
Thank You ATA Karate Denver!"
"I simply cannot speak highly enough of ATA Karate Denver! They offer an amazing program, with something for everyone from age 3 through adult, built on the qualities of respect, integrity, discipline, self-control and fitness. We've been attending classes for over a year now, and as my level of involvement grows, my already high opinion of the entire team at ATA expands exponentially. They continue to impress me with their dedication and their level of investment that they have to each and every student, regardless of age, rank, or fitness ability. My son and I attend class together and it has been a positive way for us to spend time with each other - in and out of class!"
"I put my boys in Taekwondo so that they could get a little exercise and learn to protect themselves. It's good for them. I would sit on the sidelines and yell, what I thought were supporting comments like "You can do it!" "It doesn't look that hard.", or "You can run faster than that!" I was invited to join in the fun by one of the instructors, and I thought, if the kids could do it, I would have no problems participating. I would set a great example for my kids, get a little exercise, and it would be like child's play. Let's just say I was wrong on the child's play...it's closer to work than play. But it is the best work ever!! I am challenged from start to end, physically and mentally. Whether it is learning a new form, perfecting stances, or just trying to keep up with the kids, it's all work and I love it. I am no longer sedentary, I look forward to a hard workout, I am changing my body and my body image, I enjoy the family atmosphere and constant support we recieve from the school, oh, and the kids love it too. As a family we are working towards our black belts together, and in the process gaining so much more.
If you are looking for a school that is going to instill the foundations of success, building character and martial arts skills, while focusing on goal setting, self-discipline, and respect, (applicable to both young and old) I highly recommend ATA Karate Denver as the school for you."
