Welcome to
ATA Manchester Martial Arts

To A Caring Parent

Hi, my name is Jordan Howard.

Many people walk through the doors of my school for the first time and think that martial arts is just about punching and kicking. This may surprise you, but there is so much more to it.

Our goal at ATA Manchester Martial Arts is to use martial arts as a vehicle to inspire kids to be more confident and focused in their daily activities.

Below, I would like to share with you the most important benefits that children and parents get from our program. Then afterward, I will let our members do the talking and share with you exactly how our program transformed their child’s life.

The Transformation

After Just A Few Weeks Of MArtial Arts, This is What Happens...

Action-Packed Fitness and Exercise.

Action-packed games, activities, and exercises give kids a great workout from head to toe.

They get stronger, healthier and more fit within just a couple weeks. These fun exercises also help maintain a healthy weight!

The best part? The fitness is disguised as FUN! All your child will know is that they’re having a blast. But you and I know they’re also getting the exercise they need.

Self-Defense From Strangers, Bullies, and More.

Make no mistake about it! While our classes are tons of fun, we also cover the "serious" stuff too.

We teach kids about handling strangers... bullies... and more.

However, the first thing we teach is diplomacy. We give your child the tools they need to "talk it out" first. Violence is ALWAYS a last resort!

Powerful Character Development Breeds Discipline, Focus, and Respect.

For thousands of years, martial arts has been one of the best kept secrets for giving kids the skills they need for success in life.

Through inspiring stories and talks, as well as the process of learning the techniques, kids develop amazing traits, like:

Respect, discipline, focus, and goal setting.

I hope your child will never have to use their self-defense skills. But I guarantee these other skills will come in handy EVERY day for the rest of their life.

Fun, Fun, Fun!!!

While kids work hard and train hard in our classes...

They also smile and laugh a LOT, too!

After all, these are kids we’re dealing with here! Our classes are a great place for kids to socialize, make friends, get support, and have a blast.

I cannot rave enough about Howard's ATA Martial Arts. The center donated a 45-minute Confidence Course for a group of 10 Girl Scouts. They had 3 instructors on hand and were incredible with the kids (ages 9-11). They were outstanding instructors, really engaged the girls, and allowed them to sample a variety of activities including kicking, board-breaking, bagwork, partner work, and more. There was a discussion about respecting yourself and others. It was incredibly empowering for the girls and I was beyond impressed with the respect and kindness shown to our group. All of our girls left with HUGE smiles on their faces. They felt strong and powerful and were clamoring for more learning about martial arts. A few other things to know: the gym is SPOTLESS, the staff is kind and friendly, and the equipment is organized, clean, and safe. We were so impressed. Thank you so much for hosting us and for being such an amazing community partner!

Nice teacher , though costly. It is nice place. After being there for almost realized teacher's focus shifts towards fresh students more. And despite showing dedication towards institute in going there spending my time bringing my child there and that also helping them by paying each month for year. I realized my child had little growth but found huge saturation growing skills. I guess institute's most focus is towards welcoming fresh students. Thatz is point

We just had my daughter's birthday party there and couldn't have been happier. They took care of all the details including the cake and drinks and the kids had a blast. They had 19 incoming 1st graders attention the entire hour and a half. Mr. Howard was so great and made my daughter feel amazing. She is often shy in new settings and had never been there before and absolutely loved it. She loves being active and they had the kids up and moving the entire time, while learning various moves and new vocabulary. She even got to break a board which was really fun for her and all of the other kids there as well and ending it with an obstacle course was great fun. I would highly recommend having another birthday party there.
