Learning combat skills is not the main benefit of martial-arts lessons, as the instructors at TriValley ATA Martial Arts know well during the journey from white belt to black belt. Their students develop valuable personal skills—discipline, self-confidence, and focus. Both kids and adults learn proper stance and how to block and strike as they work toward acquiring the next belt. Mastering these physical skills requires developing mental skills, which helps bring balance to the mind, body, and spirit in a more fun way than trying to meditate while lying on a seesaw.
