Self defense, fitness, and the ability to train with other people my age were all things I was looking for in a martial arts program. I had looked at several different places in the Virginia Beach, Va area and didn’t see the discipline I wanted or the camaraderie of the classes just didn’t seem to be there. A friend of mine had mentioned that she and her son had been taking taekwondo for a while at the Princess Anne Changing Lives ATA Martial Arts location and that he was in the Karate Kids class and she was in the class for adults. I decided to give it a try (they offer a free class) and I was hooked. The instructors were professional, courteous, as well as humble. Since I started taking the martial arts classes for adults, I have gotten in better physical shape, as well my confidence, self control, and focus has improved. Thank you to Changing Lives ATA Martial Arts and their instructors for helping me to grow physically, and mentally!

I've been involved with martial arts for most of my life and have been employed as an instructor at other local schools. So when the time came for me to find a place to further my own training, I know I needed a place with a special combination of instruction, atmosphere, and programs. King Tiger is definitely that place! There's a nice blend of striking and grappling to work on, a real feeling and sense of family and camaraderie, and best of all, Master Cielo. He's a great instructor with wonderful energy who is very understanding, adaptable, and encouraging. I suggest to everyone to just come in and try a class, and you'll understand what I mean., The children's programs are well structured, the teen and adult programs let you push yourself, and if you want more out of the classes, all you have to do is ask. Truly a wonderful school with a lot to offer.
Our child has been going to the Changing Lives ATA Martial Arts Academy in Virginia Beach, Va for about a year now. He is enrolled in the Tiny TIger program and we love it! The certified instructors work with each child. They work on Life Skills such as Honor, Integrity, Goals, etc. They also work on balance, focus, and hand/eye coordination. The best part is that my son is excited to attend class every time he goes! We enjoy what Changing Lives ATA Martial Arts has done for our son so much that my husband and I are starting in their adult Taekwondo class and their Krav Maga class. Very strongly recommend these professionals who truly care about each and every student.
