What started as just our daughter (then 8 years old) joining ATA Karate for Kids in Pottstown, PA, quickly expanded to include our whole family participating since the school offers something for everyone. The staff is great and keeps the students (both children and adults) motivated on traditional forms, sparring, weapons drills, and even board breaking. Best of all, it’s fun! We’ve not only gotten in better shape, but we’ve made some very good friends, and our daughter is really learning some good life skills, such as self-discipline, confidence and focus.”                                                                                                                                       ~ Jim, Kim, & Katie Burke
My son began taekwondo in 2013, when he was just 4 years old. ATA Karate for Kids has been worth every penny spent!  He not only learns traditional forms, a variety of weapons, sparring, and boardbreaking, but he also is learning important lifeskills such as: honesty, self-discipline, self-control, integrity, and setting goals.  ATA Karate for Kids not only teaches about the principles of taekwondo  and important lifeskills, but they also stress the importance of taking what they learn to succeed in other areas of their life; other sports, school and at home. He signs up for most of the extra events the school offers. He really enjoyed their most recent Ninja Night and is looking forward to summer camp and earning his black belt early next year.  He has been part of the Jr. Leadership prgoram for a little over a year and is really enjoying it, and doesn’t realize how much these extra classes are going to help him not only now, but skills that will last a lifetime.                                                                                                                                                                      ~ Pam Ball
