Specialty Training Programs

When a student begins their training at Schafer’s ATA Martial Arts, they will have a variety of class times and choices to choose from depending on the program they are in. Many students begin in our Black Belt Club (BBC) and from there, they add on extra classes as their training develops. Below are descriptions of those programs.

Black Belt Club

The Black Belt Club at Schafer’s ATA is open to all students, regardless of rank. The goal of the program is to help all of our students achieve their goal of black belt excellence. In Black Belt Club, students use protech safely weapons that aid in developing coordination and building confidence. The self-defense tactics taught encourage students to avoid confrontation or control opponents in necessary circumstances. This is our beginning program, designed to get students started in martial arts. For 12 months, we help students build the foundation for the rest of their training.

Xtreme Martial Arts (XMA) and Acro

XMA – Xtreme Martial Arts is a combination of techniques, methods of movement, and extreme attitude. It is a mixture of virtually all martial arts styles blended together with high-flying acrobatics and gymnastics. Our Acro class helps students develop skills to maneuver is a more flexible and parkour kind of way.

This class includes break dancing, hip-hop and performing arts – acting, theatre, live performance and street performance. XMA is all about pushing the limits mentally and physically and taking things to the next level.

It’s not only about punching and kicking, or jumping and flipping. XMA involves much more, showing strength through the mind as well as the body. XMA students gain the confidence to stand in front of a crowd and have their attitude be enough to command the attention of everyone in the room.

When in XMA, students can try out for our demo team and perform in parades, events, schools, and many other places!


Private Class- Low Noise & Stimulation

Schafer’s ATA is proud to now offer a Private Class geared towards students who need limited stimulation and lower volume controlled instruction. Our school gets busy during the day and this busyness can cause anxiety in some of our students and lead to heightened levels of stress and distractibility.  We want to provide martial arts instruction for ALL students of ALL needs and learning styles. This class will be invitation/evaluation only and our goal is to graduate students into our regular class times IF that is what is best for him or her. This is a 30 minute class twice a week and will be a blend of exercise, life skill development, martial arts training, fun, and more.  This class will not be part of our monthly tuition program and will be a fee per session with a belt testing included at the end. We are thrilled to be bringing this class to our community!
