My family has been with McDonough ATA for several years now and we love it! The staff here is very friendly and Ms. Johnson especially is very helpful and goes out of her way to answer questions and give help wherever and whenever needed.

If you want your child to defend themselves against all the challenges that life will bring them as they grow and develop, you need to enroll in this school. I am especially impressed with their "Leadership Program". This school doesn't just teach students to "pass" which is what it seems our youth only cares about... this school raises the bar and tells it's students to go beyond "passing" and EXCEL.

The staff is highly qualified and makes a point to get to know every student individually. They are genuinely concerned that each student is achieving their maximum potential. They are very organized and the studio is kept clean. They also offer numerous other activities that are fun and even offer parent's night out.

My kids have gained so much from going there. They are more respectful and have gained so much self-confidence. I would recommend ATA of McDonough to anyone wanting to take martial arts. My daughter just had her birthday party there in the staff was wonderful. They made her feel so special. Thanks ATA!!!

Learning Martial Arts is NOT Just For Kids

Our lives are so stressful these days and often we lose track of what is primarily important, enjoying life. One of the ways to enjoy life is to learn something new. Martial arts is one of the things that can be very beneficial for adults to learn. The benefits that we get from learning any form of martial arts may surprise you.  (For an amazing school in the McDonough, GA area, please please free to check out: https://www.ata-bba.net/program/adult-martial-arts/)

Stress Relief

One of the primary reasons that we get sick is the presence of stress in our lives and us not being able to deal with it properly. Learning martial arts, as an adult, can help manage the stress that we encounter in our everyday lives. The exertions that adults are exposed to when learning can help relive the pent up emotions and stresses that we often pick up at work, in school or even at home. Exerting effort and concentrating to learn moves lead to a calmer adult. Some trainings or sessions can also be enough to tire one out to the extent that you get a good night’s sleep without tossing and turning, thinking about the problems from work, school r at home.

Concentration

Learning martial arts will also help adults concentrate more. Qualified experts who teach martial arts require your attention when teaching. Focusing on specific moves and what the teacher is showing or teaching helps your mind stay on track. You can actually apply this kind of concentration at work and at home to reach solutions and enjoy life. Learning to assess your opponent’s moves contribute to improved concentration and helps you anticipate possible means of attack.

Confidence

You gain confidence when you learn martial arts and other new skills. The fact that you have the capacity to learn is enough to boost your confidence. This will affect the way that you view yourself and the world around you, ultimately affecting how you carry yourself and how you interact with others. Aside from these, reduced stress in your life is also enough to make you feel better and enjoy life. Being able to concentrate better at work, in school or at home will also help you perform better; thus boosting your self confidence. The fact that you can also defend yourself physically and adequately will also help you be more confident.

Build Strength

Martial arts help you build your strength. This will help you get through the vigorous training sessions that await you as you continue to learn. Adults often get flabby and weak without any form of exercise. Martial arts is a great way to build strength and even lose weight.

Lose Weight

The activities that adults do while learning martial arts are enough to burn calories and trim down a person excess weight. Because you build muscles during all that training and exercise, you lose fat as well. Continuous training will help you manage your weight and build up your strength.

These are some of the great reasons why adults should not hesitate to learn martial arts. The benefits of trying out martial arts are actually very good for young and old adults.
