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.

This place is a great place for kids of all ages and adults. Very family oriented even if you are just a parent not taking classes you are invited to watch and kept informed of all things going on. Very patient staff and teachers are phenomenal with the fact that all kids/people learn differently and they teach individually while still keeping the group learning as a whole. Walked into the building on a whim and ended up letting my daughter take classes for 4 years and becoming a 2nd degree black belt. She was strong willed stubborn and kinda hard to teach however all the teachers and staff were patient and kept calm helping her to learn respect and to follow rules and also respect to others who may not learn as quick as her so in the end she became a leader willing to help other struggling students. Highly recommend anyone thinking about taking classes to check this place out.

We've been with McDonough ATA for a year now and the growth and positive changes we've seen are incredible. Our family have noticed the changes and have copied what we are doing in one way or another. Staff is great, friendly, and their families are a part of the Black Belt journey as well. Talk about putting your mouth where your money is. Gold Star

We absolutely adore this studio. My daughter is 4 and she loves her karate instructors and everything she learns! Today they learned about what to do if someone tries to kidnap them and I think it is absolutely wonderful that they teach this! The people are wonderful! I also am so happy that they are so accepting of all cultures. My daughter has two moms and they are more than welcoming of it!

My kids love ATA! My 7 year old is in the after-school program and begs to attend every camp and parents night out. A four-year-old has already told me he wants to join the after-school program next year when he starts kindergarten. They have both learned so much: martial arts, anti-bullying, self-defense, respect, discipline, and more. I love seeing the look of accomplishment on their faces every time they advance to the next belt. They love their instructors and the friends they have met along the way. What a great experience!

My son is 7 years old and last month marked one year he has been enrolled in classes. McDonough ATA is about so much more than learning cool karate moves. For example, the oath they begin and end class with..."I promise to be a good person, to have knowledge in my mind, honesty in my heart, strength in my body, and make good friends." McDonough ATA and the wonderful instructors reinforce everything (and more) that we are teaching our son at home. Core values...honesty, loyalty, manners, tolerance, commitment, perseverance, discipline, self-confidence, encouragement, empathy, citizenship...I could go on! Not to mention the friendships and bonds he has formed with his classmates...priceless. ATA McDonough excels in molding and creating good people to be our country's future leaders.

4 Tips on Building Your Child's Confidence

Are you worried about what to do

with your kids in the afternoon and early evening?

You wonder how your kids are spending their free time while you’re finishing up your work day.

You want your child to make new friends and build healthy relationships.

Your child struggles with discipline and respect, and you want them to learn these core values.

Being a parent is never easy!

Which is why we have started our After School program…

One of the biggest challenges of parenting is finding wholesome and fun activities for your kids to do after school. It’s especially important if you work and you know your kids will be unsupervised for several hours a day. You want to know where your kids are and what they’re doing – and you want them to be learning something and not just playing video games.

That’s where our after-school program comes in. Kids learn about martial arts, including the core tenets of respect, discipline, and perseverance, in a fun and social setting.

your child will grow every day!

Learning martial arts helps kids in many ways. It teaches them to respect themselves and others, and to persist when they have a goal in mind. It emphasizes the mind-body connection and helps them to discipline themselves without being reminded.

Workout Instead of Sitting on the Couch

One of the most challenging things about being a parent these days is finding a way to tear your kids away from computers and video games and get them moving.

Our after-school program gives kids a physical outlet after a long day at school – and teaches them the value of fitness in a fun setting.

Safe, Positive Place to Spend After-School

Do your kids come home to an empty house after school because you’re at work? Instead of having them there by themselves, our after-school program gives them a fun and educational alternative.

When your kids are with us, they’re learning useful skills and spending time with other kids. You can rest easy knowing that they’re safe and sound.

Make New Friends & Have Fun

Sometimes, kids struggle to make new friends. It can be hard to find others with common interests or to have the time to socialize at school.

Our after-school program is a social setting, a place where kids can share experiences while learning something new. Many of the kids who attend our programs end up being close friends.

Learn Respect, Discipline, and Persistence

Some after-school programs simply offer parents a place to send their kids without any other benefits. Ours is different.

Kids who study martial arts learn respect for themselves and others, discipline in the pursuit of goals, and the rewards of hard work – lessons that carry over to home, school, and beyond.
