Life Skills

The ATA life skills curriculum teaches our students beyond just kicking and punching. One life
skill is focused on for an entire month before a new exciting life skill is introduced. These are
invaluable life lessons to develop one’s self into the best person one can be. Inside our martial
art classes student’s will not only learn the meaning of such powerful words, but also how to
demonstrate and recognize these positive life attributes.
