1127 Centre St., Traverse City, MI 49686
After 14 years of training, it was time to move forward. With 20+ years of dance behind me, martial arts was the next logical step. ATA (American Taekwondo Association) is a world wide organization that is dedicated to improving the students physical abilities as well as encouraging emotional growth. I have been studying Songahm Taekwondo since 2005, and after achieving multiple state and national championship titles, 3 levels of judging certifications, my Instructor certification and my 4th degree black belt; I knew 2020 was the year.
I am now the proud new owner of ATA Martial Arts of Traverse City. I am honored to be a woman in a profession where strength is exemplified, where I can now give back not only to my husband and 4 children (who also train), but the members of this community who make this area so grand. I am grateful to have the opportunity to share my passion for martial arts with kids, teens, adults, and families.
