Over 16 years of Teaching Excellence . . .

For over 16 years, Mark Murphy III, has been teaching Taekwondo for ATA Taekwondo in many locations. Instructors of the American Taekwondo Association are personally selected from ATA's Instructor Training Program, not only for their skill and achievements in martial arts, but their ability to effectively relate that knowledge and understanding to students of all age levels and backgrounds as well. Therefore our instructors continuously undergo advance training in all self-defense skills, and each and everyone keeps abreast of the latest teaching methods and human development.

With you in mind . . .

At the ATA BLACK BELT ACADEMY we are not only interested in fighting skills but in the development of each person as a whole. As a famous teacher once said "these are the tools of everyday life, what you learn in here, you can apply elsewhere..." Nowhere is this more important than in our children's classes where we realize that we must embody the very same principles that you as parents are trying to instill in your children.

A modern approach to self defense . . .

Although our techniques are based on century old knowledge, it is our application of that knowledge that sets ATA BLACK BELT ACADEMY apart. We realize that each of you possess different natural abilities; size and strength will vary from person to person, etc. That is why once that you have acquired a strong foundation and ability in the basics, our program is individualized to match your physical capabilities to maximize your self defense skills. Should the need ever arise you will possess a firm understanding of exactly what it takes to both mentally and physically defend yourself or your loved ones.
