What We Offer at ATA Martial Arts:


"The New Bern ATA is a wonderful place for children and adults to learn and participate in various events. The kids enjoy taking the Taekwondo classes, sparring and weapons classes. It teaches them listening, discipline, and morale courage. My brother also takes classes to stay active, so it has become a family event."
                                                     - Barbara Chance

"ATA has been of the greatest things that I have been in all of my life. I have played sports all of my life and Martial Arts has been one that I have ha to put more effort into, to become better. ATA has also made me a better leader and being a leader has always been a goal of mine. I love being on the Instructor Program and taking the classes all the same."
                                                    - Toby Cochran

"My daughter, Trinicia Bryant, has been going to the ATA of New Bern for seven months now and she loves it! She has learned how to defend herself and has more confidence in herself at school, her grades also went up. The ATA Instructors really work well with all the students and they care for about the kids."
                                                   - Christa Cherry

"My son has been coming for just a little while, but I can see a lot of change in him. Especially self-confidence. So glad I decided to bring him to ATA."
                                                  - Tawlynn Howell

"When I first came to ATA in May of 2015, I didn't know any self-defense. After being here for over a year, I have learned many methods of self-defense as well as Taekwondo forms, kicks, etc. I pray I never have to use what I have learned out in the world, however, if I do I feel confident that, through the repeated instruction of Mr. Johnson and the other instructors, I will be able to defend myself. Everyone at ATA is very helpful and fun to be around while maintaining a professional atmosphere."
                                                 - Mariah Reeves

"We have seen incredible, marketed improvement in our son's behavior since he began classes last year at the ATA of New Bern."
                                                - RW. Borden

"I want to thank the ATA Team of New Bern for coaching my son! Your efforts on the mat has made him a better person! The training and of course the fun he has under your supervision is worth the joy! Your patience and sportsmanship qualities that have been transferred to him with the hard training and leadership. You are not just a coach, you are a mentor to him."
                                                - Nathalie Marsh

"We have been with the ATA of New Bern for eight months now. I have three children enrolled in multiple programs with them. The instructors are amazing with the kids, professional and respectful in their demeanor, and knowledgeable about their profession. We love our ATA family and look forward to many years of participation to come.

"My son has been coming to the ATA in New Bern for over a year now. He has learned traditional Taekwondo forms and kids, self-defense moves and engaged in other physical training. He has also become more respectful, confident and made many new friends. He enjoys coming to the other ATA activities as well: lock-ins, birthday and holiday parties, summer camp, and Parent's Night Outs. ATA is a great place for kids and adults to become more well-rounded physically, emotionally, socially, and academically. Go try a FREE Class!!"
