ATA X-Treme Martial Arts
The X-Treme Martial Arts program is part of the leadership program. It takes martial arts to the next level by incorporating gymastics, dance, and music into a free-style form. Students also create X-treme free-style weapons forms in this program. Our X-Treme Martial Arts program develops creativity and allows students to express themselves by personalizing their martial art.
Mike Chat, creator of XMA, describes his program as: ďThe ability to perform highly skilled moves and also the ability to perform basic moves and make them look spectacular! This is why XMA is not only for the elite level athletes and competitors, but also for beginners at the entry level as well. It is the look in oneís eyes and position of oneís body that tells the story. Itís not only about punching and kicking, or jumping and flipping, but more, showing strength through the mind as well as the body. To stand planted with your feet on the ground and command the attention of the audience without sound or movement, using only the look in your eyes and the strength of your stance, actually shows more power than any punch, kick or flip. Thatís Xtreme!"
Child Safety and Bullying Prevention
We incorporate ATA's Kidz'N Power program into our Tiny Tiger, Basic, and Black Belt Club classes. This program is endorsed and backed by Amber Alert for child Abduction prevention and partnered with Olweus for Bullying Prevention. In the Tiny Tiger program we apply the 911 Safety, Stranger Danger, and Child Abduction Prevention aspects of the Kidz'N Power program. In our other programs, for kids ages 6 and up, we apply bullying prevention techniques developed by the Olweus Program that are adapted to martial arts training. This training is geared towards empowering children with the knowledge they need to prevent bullying and gives them strategies to use if they are bullied. We also offer Kidz'N Power training through free community seminars that we teach at our school and community venues such as elementary schools and day cares.
