Success Now Martial Arts

For more than three decades we have strived to create an enjoyable environment for students to improve their fitness while building the confidence they can carry into their everyday lives. Our professional instructors go through over 300 hours of training and are ranked and certified by the American Taekwondo Association.

When we opened the Countryside school in 2009, we made a commitment to serving and empowering the community. We thrive on teaching children and adults the confidence, leadership, and fitness skills that can only be achieved through martial arts. 

We Share & teach The Same Values You Teach At Home.

The ATA Martial Arts programs have a strong focus on personal development. The foundations of our morals, values and core character traits are formed in our early years. For this reason, the ATA Martial Arts program is an essential way to enhance the growth and personal development of young students of all ages.

Songahm Taekwondo is the style of martial arts practiced by ATA Martial Arts students.
The journey from White Belt to Black Belt (10 belts total) is one of incremental learning and skill development that students of any age any fitness level can embark on.


One of the most fun parts of martial arts training is the ability to test your skills by competing in a tournament. Tournaments are not only fun for competitors, but they also become a great social experience for parents as well! There are currently 130,000 ATA Martial Arts members worldwide. ATA Martial Arts students compete in local tournaments against other ATA schools, advancing from District levels, to State levels, to a yearly Spring National competition in Las Vegas, NV. The competition winners gather at the ATA World Expo Tournament in Little Rock, AR in the summer, competing against finalists from all over the planet in one of largest martial arts competitions in the world.
