Message from school owner

Here at ATA Steele Creek, we are more than a school that kicks and punches. We use martial arts to instill discipline, respect, and honor into our students. At our academy, we do not only teach martial arts, but we influence our students in a positive manner to become better people.
Not only do my instructors and I care about our students growth as martial artists, but we also care about their progress outside of our school. My instructors take a huge interest in our students’ school work, careers, and other activities. Our students who are still in grade school, are expected to bring in their grades. We want our students to have a Black Belt Attitude inside our school, at home, and at school!

Compelling reason to enroll 1

Many schools and academies in the area are either run by part time instructors or have only been established for a year. At ATA Steele Creek, you will be joining an academy that has full time instructors, and that has been established for over 8 years! At our academy, everyone who walks through that door is family!

Compelling reason to enroll 2

Any individual can open a martial arts school and consider themselves a master and a great teacher, but at ATA Steele Creek, we have standards. We are part of the biggest martial arts organization in the world; ATA (American TaeKwonDo Association). Being part of the ATA, they require over 300 hours of assisting before you can consider yourself a certified instructor. Along with the 300 hours that the ATA requires, we also have to be certified in many other areas including CPR! Being apart of our organization comes with many benefits including tournaments, international rankings, and certifications, and of course, an amazing family!

Compelling reason to enroll 3

At ATA Steele Creek, we do not only teach punching and kicking, but rather we concentrate on the student’s physical and mental growth. We keep a close eye on our students as martial artists and as individuals. To us, we instill discipline and respect through the art of TaeKwonDo. We make sure our students have a Black Belt Attitude at our academy, at home, and at school!
