Congratulations to our newest belt ranks.

New black belt recommended ranks. 10155481_10152045576077967_4998407558703538895_nSpecial congratulations to all our students who successfully completed their recent promotional testing at Sr. Master Black’s ATA Martial Arts.  The students worked hard to showcase their best techniques, attitude and focus.  Each testing is also a learning experience creating a new “to do” list of areas for improvement and determination.  Martial art training not only teaches us how to handles life’s difficulties, but also reveals your current progress in your response to both victory and perceived defeat.  The ATA school offers a “safe” zone to improve yourself, while supporting those around you and in turn receiving support.  Training in karate is an invaluable asset to one’s life, with the only requirement being teachable, coachable and otherwise persistent.  I am proud of you all.  Sr. Master Black
