Welcome students, parents, and visitors!
We are proud to announce the opening of our new Casey’s ATA Black Belt Academy blog! In conjunction with the update to our website, we hope to reach out and increase communication between current students, parents, and the community at large. This blog is meant to be a sort of focal point from which we will discuss a wide range of topics. We aim to keep students and parents up-to-date on everything happening around the school, to celebrate and highlight the successes of our students, and to provide information to anyone interested in joining our Casey’s family! We hope that we can put an end to common misconceptions about martial arts in our community and show more people what our students already know: that tae kwon do can truly change your life for the better.
Students and Parents- Thank you for your support and for taking this exciting first step with us as we work to get this blog and the website off the ground. This is where we will let you know of upcoming events, our community involvement, and just about everything happening here at Casey’s. We’ll announce information about each new testing cycle and congratulate students as they advance through the ranks and compete at tournaments. We hope to showcase pictures and videos of our students, and also to generate discussion on a wide range of topics from leadership to self-defense to public outreach. This is where we need your help and support! If you have pictures to share, questions to ask, topics for upcoming blog posts, or ideas to share that we haven’t thought of, please let us know! This blog is for all of us to come together and truly get to know each other as an ATA family. So share this with martial arts and non-martial arts friends alike, and we can take the next step of our journey together!
Visitors- If you’re reading this, you’ve already taken a crucial first step of your own. You’ve taken the time to research Casey’s ATA Black Belt Academy, and you are now giving a solid foundation to your idea of martial arts. We thank you for your interest in tae kwon do, whether it be for yourself, your child, or your entire family! Here, we aim to answer that fundamental question: “Why martial arts?” Through a combination of articles, parent testimonials, and student feedback, we will explain just how positive an impact tae kwon do can have on people of any age. It is easy to see the physical benefits of martial arts, the improved fitness, strength, coordination, balance, and flexibility, but many people often overlook the most important mental benefits. At the core of our curriculum, we teach life skills such as Respect, Courtesy, Perseverance, Self-Control, and SMART Goal setting. Our students become confident leaders who succeed not only at the academy, but also in school and the workplace. They learn the value of living with a “Black Belt Attitude,” and they understand the importance of striving to achieve their best in everything that they do. These life skills also have a very real application when it comes to safety and well-being. Our students learn essential self-defense techniques that protect them in dangerous situations, but they also learn ways to avert such situations. They learn that everyone has value and that they must stand up for themselves and for others and prevent bullying. At Casey’s ATA, martial arts isn’t just a sport. It is a way of life and a supportive community. We hope that after reading our blog, you will take that next step and schedule an appointment with us to see these results firsthand. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you into our ATA family!
