Our family now has a 4th blackbelt in the home and two more to go. Why do I place such high value on Duer’s ATA? Because my 11yr old daughter said”I don’t have to worry about the quality of friends I make here. Only good people can survive in this environment.”That is a rare gem 💎 in these days and she’s not wrong.read more

We are so grateful to have found Duer’s ATA Martial Arts for our daughter. Prior to discovering Duer’s ATA, she had had a difficult time focusing at home and at school and playing other sports could pose a challenge given her difficulty paying attention and focusing on the task at hand. Her participation in Martial Arts has given her a level of focus and determination as well as self-confidence and leadership that were just waiting to be developed. These skills have carried over into her behavior at home and at school as well. Senior Master Duer and his team of instructors are always encouraging and focused on skill development regardless of ability level. Can’t wait to see our daughter continue to advance through their program!read more

If you become a member of his school you will pushed to be great. We wouldn’t want it any other way!read more

Master Duer and the rest of the staff there are amazing. Three of my children go there and all of them love it and are not only learning taekwondo, but they are learning great skills and accountability. We have been using the star charts to help with behavior at home and I have never seen my sons so interested in helping with chores. I have recommended Duer Martial Arts to many families and will continue to.read more
