Today’s world keeps getting tougher for teens. Here at Albany ATA Martial Arts, it is our goal to create a safe and encouraging learning environment, where they can learn self-defense, discipline, and confidence without being ridiculed for their mistakes. This sense of identity will boost their confidence, resulting in increased assertiveness when dealing with the high-pressure situations they’re faced with on a daily basis.
Our classes are an excellent way for teens to get involved with peers that share similar goals and standards. By expanding their network with positive influences, they'll be able to maintain accountability and increase their social skills.
