My 6 year old son was having a really rough time at school in kindergarten. We knew that he needed extra structure and an extracurricular activity to help harness all his energy. He expressed interest in karate and we found ATA fairly quickly and enrolled him. After a week or 2 he started acting completely different. He had more control over his actions, talked with more respect, and even showed more focus/dedication towards school. His teacher even noticed the change. She was curious as to what we had changed about his routine! ATA has positively affected his life and behavior. The instructors there are amazing with kids, very funny and attentive. They are always cheerful and happy to see everyone in class and make it a joy to be there. I cannot express enough how thankful we are to have found them and the wonderful change it has made on my son.
