Martial Arts Classes in Little Rock: How to Choose a Martial Arts School for Your Child Part 2

Posted: February 26, 2019

Talk to Instructors, are they qualified?

It's important to know the qualifications of the instructors at a martial arts school. Ask about their training and find out if they are certified. People who want to teach martial arts may be personal trainers who are certified as martial arts instructors, or they may have certification from associations within their sport. For instance, a good martial arts instructor may have a certification from an organization like the American Taekwondo Association. Instructors teaching karate for kids should also be certified in first-aid and CPR in case a child is injured during class.

If you’re interested in having your child participate in competitions, you need to verify any certifications or licenses required by state law. In Arkansas, amateur competitive matches must be sanctioned and supervised by an amateur sanctioning organization for matches involving martial arts forms that include blows or strikes to the head. At All Star ATA Martial Arts, our students compete in the Tournaments, that begin with district / regional tournaments and continue on until World Championships where finalists from all over the world compete in one of the largest Martial Arts tournaments in the world.


Defining Belief - Part 1

Posted: February 16, 2019

Belief is having the “YES I CAN” attitude always and no matter what.  It is the ability to see the invisible and look beyond the obvious.  Belief is the total commitment to a goal (like earning a black belt in martial arts, or making an A in a school subject) so that no possibility of any end, other than the desired one, exists.

Belief is our inner power used with our core values towards the fulfillment of our goals.  Absolutely everything we do in our lives, in fact, is based on our beliefs.  Every action we take, every decision we make, and every single thing we do stems from what we believe.  If we believe this, we do that; if we believe something else, we do something different.

We learn most of our beliefs in our community, environment or the country we grow up in.  We learn them mostly from our parents, teachers and mentors.
