First off, I am very proud of Ashleigh and the efforts that she has put forward in multi-tasking different activities on a daily basis. Before she joined Wright's ATA, like any young child, she difficulties with attention span. I feel that being in this class has taught her how to be more disciplined and caring Continue Reading

What Price for a Child’s Safety?

What price can one put on their child's safety and well being?

Karate Classes Gave My Son Confidence

My 4 year old son has always been a little shy and slow to get comfortable around kids his age. Knowing school was approaching I wanted him to gain more self confidence so I enrolled him in karate classes. He was shy and unresponsive to the staff in the first few lessons. The instructors at Continue Reading

Message From School Owner Thomas Wright

My dream is to improve our community and nation by developing and building strong leaders through inspiration, focus, discipline, and the confidence of knowing that there is truly no limit to what they can achieve.

It is very important to all of us here at Wright’s ATA Martial Arts to see our students excel in every way possible. These programs are designed to help our students outside our classroom walls for the real world journeys they have ahead of them. With the skills and mindset of a confident and successful leader, they will realize that there are no limits to their accomplishments in life.

It’s About Personal Development

Wright’s ATA Martial Arts is an established studio in East Memphis, dedicated to the personal development of all that enter our doors. We welcome you to visit us, tour our facility and see for yourself how our staff, instructors (The Wright Team) works together for a better you.

Our Parent’s Say it Best!

“Since Andrew has been coming to Wright’s ATA, we have noticed a change for the positive in his behavior and manners. While he did not need much improvement in these areas, he has shown an increase in his respect of his parents and teachers and also demonstrates leadership qualities with his younger sister, and at school among his friends. On his last report card, his teacher commented on what a great leader he has become! Additionally, we have noticed and overall increase in enthusiasm and perseverance in performing tasks that he might not rather be performing . We are very proud of Andrew and the personal growth he has shown since he has started coming to Wright’s ATA!”

Parental Involvement

  Increasingly I witness parents staring down into their iPads and phones while their child is looking back at them after performing a kick or strike that, until a few moments before, they could not envision themselves executing properly.  While we are all applauding the student’s achievement, Mom and/or Dad missed it AND the look […]

Our Tigers (ages 4-6) are taught the same as our older kids and adults except that their classes are tailored for their young minds and bodies.  Our developmental approach to Martial Arts is second to none.  ALL […]

Martial Arts For Seniors 1 Martial Arts, Never Too Late To Learn!

Martial Arts, Never Too Late To Learn!

As we get older we seem to lose the edge we used to have, be it in speed, focus and sometimes even memory. Seniors can be more active as compared to their juniors if health permits. In fact, many seniors have reported that the sole thing holding them back is physical discomfort. This is where martial arts […]
