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.

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!”
