Adults start at any age, as we have had some adults who started as late as age 65, and have still earned their black belts.

Taekwondo for Teens & Adults
The Benefits Of Martial Arts
Martial Arts is an introspective art form that predominantly involves punching, kicking, and striking. Many parents choose to sign up their children for Martial Arts at Katy ATA Martial Arts because it teaches confidence, perseverance, and self-defense skills.
When the speed and power developed through Taekwondo is used in a self-defense situation against the soft vulnerable parts of an attacker’s body, the result can be incredible. Taekwondo allows a woman to emphasize many of her natural physicals strengths, such as power in the legs while learning a method of self-defense efficient against a much larger opponent. Knowing you can defend yourself, your confidence will grow. And confidence alone is usually enough to deter potential attackers.
The principals of Taekwondo techniques are based on the design of your body. For power you develop the larger, powerful muscles of the torso. The speed of the techniques comes from the fast, agile muscles of the arms and legs. As you progress in Taekwondo you will learn to coordinate this speed and power, and develop a concentration to focus all of your body’s strength into a small, hard striking surface like the edge of the hand or the heel of the foot.
Do you want to live for a long time? If so, enrolling in Taekwondo is a no-brainer. Not only does Taekwondo get martial artists in amazing shape, but it provides them with health benefits that last a lifetime. Taekwondo helps its practitioners reach and maintain a healthy weight, protecting them from a slew of health issues that obesity can lead to, such as diabetes and heart disease. Additionally, Taekwondo is an amazing source of cardio. As students spar and practice their kicks, this martial art utilizes the entire body, gets the heart rate up, and improves cardiovascular health.
