About ATA Martial Arts Keizer in Keizer, OR

Carson Clews

Owner and Chief Instructor at ATA Martial Arts Keizer in Keizer, 6th Degree Black Belt

Welcome to the premier confidence building Martial Arts school in Keizer! ATA Martial Arts and Karate for Kids in Keizer has been teaching kids, adults, and families for the last 17 years! We are proud members of the American Taekwondo Association (ATA) and teach many different martial arts, but specialize in Taekwondo.

We are best known for our Karate for Kids program, as well as our ATA Tigers program. Both have been proven to be the most effective means of building confidence, discipline, focus, respect, and self-defense in kids, giving them the modern-day advantage of achieving their goals, whatever they may be.

Our adult students repeatedly say that they get the same benefits in their classes as the kids do in theirs, while also getting in the best shape of their lives. (We adults sometimes need more discipline, self-control and confidence ourselves, right?). We offer both traditional Martial Arts and Krav Maga programs for adults – both of which are CHALLENGING, FUN and EXCITING!

Are you wondering what some of the awesome benefits are for both kids and adults? How about…

  • Mind blowing gains in fitness & boundless energy
  • An amazing workout, super fit body and lean muscles
  • Mental strength, clarity & a lot less stress and anxiety
  • Unbelievable focus, determination & confidence

Training in Tae Kwon Do or Karate isn’t just about fighting, attacking and punching. It’s WAY more than that! Kids also learn about physical fitness, conditioning, agility and develop valuable life skills.

That means you’ll be in excellent physical shape, strong and quick! You’ll never have to worry about being bullied in school - or anywhere - because you’ll know how to spot potentially harmful situations so you can walk away before things get bad. You’ll also have the confidence and know how to defend yourself and friends, if necessary.  

Practicing Martial Arts is truly life-transforming and life-enriching. And the beauty of it is that it’s AFFORDABLE. We like to call it “affordable excellence.”
