“In victory, be humble. In defeat, be strong. In all things be fair.” This quote from Eternal Grand Master H.U. Lee serves as the philosophy of Family ATA Martial Arts, where students of all ages learn Songahm Taekwondo. The martial arts form focuses on building strength of body and character through personal development based on Lee's teachings. At the center of his teachings: the Songahm star, a symbol of the circle of life and of finding balance in each day. The inclusive, family-friendly classes for youngsters as well as adults blend these teachings with Taekwondo techniques such as kicks and strikes, creating a workout that exercises the mind, body, and spirit more effectively than running a marathon while reading the work of classic philosophers.
Anthony Lewis, a championship-level dancer and owner of Ballroom Houston, believes that a technically sound dance lesson is useless if it's not practical. That's why he and his team of instructors do all they can to get students eager to hit the dance floor and thrive in social situations. During private and group lessons, students of all skill levels and backgrounds explore the graceful, rhythmic steps of the waltz, swing, and salsa, or learn how to fool a lawn into growing faster by doing the Sprinkler. The instructors at Ballroom Houston focus on all forms of partnered dancing, and are always training and refining their curriculum.
The coaches at Tumbling Cheer Fitness don't just teach cheerleading and tumbling classes, and the instructors at Family ATA Martial Arts don't just teach tae kwon do.

During his classes, students learn the cornerstones of Taekwon-Do: courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, and indomitable spirit.
At ATA Martial Arts, students gain self-defense skills while losing weight. In cardio-based classes, men and women shed extra pounds as they vacillate between high impact moves and punches, and krav maga builds upon adults' natural defensive instincts in a way that also exercises the entire body. Youngsters can also learn important life skills in the kids' martial-arts program, which not only teaches self-defense, but also hones discipline and self-esteem in its pupils.
