In many martial arts styles, the assumption traditionally has been that once students earn their black belts they are ready to teach other students. But we at the All-Star Martial Arts of Arkansas and Tennessee Black Belt Academy do not believe that simply being able to do something well qualifies a person to teach it. During the last 30 years, the ATA has developed an intensive instructor training program to insure that all ATA instructors are skilled and professional teachers. All of our instructors have gone though intensive training and are internationally certified to provide the highest level of instruction for you and your child.
