Gained a Sense of Achievement

Our son achieved his 1st Degree Black Belt at 8 years old, and it was not without a lot of hard work and dedication on his part and his instructor’s part. Taekwondo has given our son a sense of achievement, confidence and the knowledge that he can do most anything he sets his mind to if he works hard enough. Mr. Evans has demanded his best and expected his best because he believed that he could, there really isn’t more that you could want from the person who instructs your child. Taekwondo has been a rewarding experience that will serve him throughout his life and will provide a strong foundation, I highly recommend Evans ATA to all persons of any age.

Martial arts are not just for kids

Thanks to Mr Evans and his ATA Blackbelt Academy, my daughter Kaitlyn has found a second home. His teaching and love of his students has transformed her from a shy 9 year old girl, who had a tough time making friends, into a strong, confident, world class 2nd Degree Black Belt and Trainee Instructor. Her growth and success through his school has transformed her life as well as her family's. We now have 3 of the 6 family members enrolled in the academy, with the others soon to follow. Couldn't think of a better place to spend our evenings, as it has brought our family closer together and we have made life long friends. Thanks again Evans ATA Black Belt Academy.

So Impressed with the Results

Enrolling our grandson in Evans ATA Black Belt Academy was one of the best things we could have done for him. Since his first day we have noticed a real boost in self-confidence and self-esteem.

Mr. Evans teaches his students life skills that develop a higher level of respect for others and comradery with fellow students.

We have been so impressed with the results that we enrolled him in the leadership program in order to give him a greater level of accomplishment and instruction. We are very proud of our grandson as he progresses through the various levels of achievement.

Mr. Evans has built a wonderful community

My son struggles with mental, emotional, and physical disability. Mr. Evans has connected with him in a wonderful way. When he earned his orange belt, it was the first time I have seen my son enjoy a sense of accomplishment. He usually begs to quit everything, but not Taekwondo. It is a wonderful community Mr. Evans has built.
