The Gossip About Saddle Rock ATA

The Lee Family

Parent Of Saddle Rock ATA students

"Our children have been attending Saddle Rock ATA for about 7 years now, all starting as Tiny Tigers. Our oldest son is a 2nd degree black belt, our daughter a 1st degree black belt, and our youngest son will test for his 1st degree next month. We would highly recommend Saddle Rock to anyone looking for a martial arts school. It is a great environment with amazing instructors who have taught our kids to be more confident in themselves and to be better leaders. We’ve seen them grow so much over the years and we’re so happy that we made the decision to join a safe environment where they can grow, learn, and make new friends.."

The McCullough Family

Parent Of Saddle Rock ATA students

"Saddle Rock ATA has been one of the most influential and integral parts of my sons’ lives for the past 10 years. The structure and discipline that the instructors instill in their students is amazing. I have seen tremendous growth in my sons’ physical abilities, self confidence, discipline, respect, and perseverance. My youngest is a 2nd degree black belt, my oldest is testing for his 3rd degree black belt, and I am also working towards my black belt. It’s an incredibly supportive school of awesome instructors and students. My son loves it so much that he has recently joined the instructor program. Ms. Cross truly cares for and treats each and every one of her students as family, and we couldn’t be luckier to be part of this community. If you’re looking for somewhere for you or your family to thrive, this is the place!"

The Gilmore Family

Parent OF Saddle Rock ATA Student

"We cannot express enough gratitude for the incredible journey our daughter has been on at Saddle Rock ATA these past 8+ years. With the impactful guidance and mentorship provided by Ms. Cross, our daughter has not only excelled as a martial artist, but has also developed self-confidence and invaluable life skills. She is a 3rd degree black belt and Legacy Instructor. Saddle Rock is far more than a martial arts school; it's a family. Ms. Cross’ dedication to each student's growth, both in skill and character, is evident in every class, testing, and tournament. We wholeheartedly recommend Saddle Rock to anyone seeking not only exceptional martial arts training, but also a community where every member is empowered to reach their fullest potential."

Sarah Miller

Parent & Student OF Saddle Rock ATA

"We originally had my daughter join this school to help build up her confidence and help with anxiety and it WORKED. She has grown so much going to this school that I decided I wanted to be a part of her journey and join too! We both love doing the classes together and especially love that it is a woman-owned school so she has a strong female role model to look up to. I would highly recommend Saddle Rock ATA for both kids AND adults looking to try taekwondo. You get so many classes with your monthly tuition, you won’t regret it."
