The Benefits of Princeton ATA

At the ATA Black Belt Academy, we are not interested in just teaching self defense, we are interested in the complete personal development of each student. Individual attention is a feature of each and every class, allowing all students to progress quickly and confidently toward their personal goals. Our instructors take their responsibility seriously as role models for younger students, teaching them the importance of strong character, leadership and good values.

1. Satisfied Students

Our students and parents are satisfied customers that have gained life skills and championship wins. You can find more testimonials here. You can also see them in action on our photo and video page.

2. Great, Experienced Instructors

Our instructors include several 3rd-degree Black Belts, a fourth degree and one fifth-degree Black Belt, which requires a commitment of at least 15 years. Our Chief Instructor Miss Winter also has a Masters Degree in Social Work and has been teaching in Princeton for over 12 years.

3. Convenient Location

We’re conveniently located in Princeton near Princeton Avenue and Cherry Valley Road on Route 206. Use 830 State Road for GPS directions.

We have classes every day of the week except Sunday, and we offer programs for kids as young as age 3, pre-teens, teens, and adults. We also have a program solely devoted to special abilities.

6. Fun and Friends

We have a really fun picnic and water balloon fight every year, and many students are friends outside the dojo. We even saw Karate Kid together this year.
