The 5 Life-Changing Gifts of
Martial Arts. For Kids AND Adults.


Bet you thought our Bartlett Martial Arts school was just a super cool place to get fit and learn self-defense... the truth is it's so much more.

As you get physically fit, you’ll also experience some changes most of our students are NOT prepared for. Especially our younger students. They are absolutely blown away by the subtle changes that happen when you train in our programs.

Below are a handful of those life-changing experiences people walk away with. We can’t wait to hear what kind of positive experiences you can add to the list as well!

Bartlett ATA Martial Arts

More Confidence

One of the first things both children AND adults notice when training with us is a big boost in confidence. And it makes sense when you think about it.

After all, martial arts is challenging. Yet when you persevere in the face of challenge, and come out on top, you realize you're stronger and more capable than you thought.

Realizing that makes you feel more confident. You feel more sure of your ability to handle whatever other challenges life throws your way.

This goes for kids, too. Their confidence boosts quickly as well.

Remarkable Focus

Martial arts is challenging and requires your full attention. As you concentrate on listening to the instructor, then performing what they taught you, you start to build crucial links in your brain that increase your ability to focus… and for longer periods of time. 

What’s great is that this intense concentration naturally pours into all other areas of your life. 

Adults report being able to not only focus better at work, but they’re able to release things and clear their mind at the end of the day, as well. Kids benefit too as they pay more attention at school and at home. 

You’ll Get Fit

Each class is loaded with challenging, fun exercise. But because you're so focused on performing techniques, and having so much fun, you hardly notice it. Before you know it, the class is over, and you not only learned powerful martial arts...

... you got a great workout, too. Being physically fit boosts energy, mental clarity, and confidence as well.


We're a tight-knit group here. And our members and instructors are all about support and friendship. Kids and adults both make friends with the other members, and as a result, our community thrives.

We provide the kind of environment that fosters friendship, encouragement, and motivation. It's truly great to experience.

Guaranteed FUN!

You’ll have an absolute blast in class! Sure, things will be tough and training can get intense sometimes. But we like to break up that intensity with lots of laughs, encouragement, and light-hearted humor. 

Laughing, smiles and fist bumps are part of every class!
