As a local school teacher and parent, I have seen the profound changes Martial Arts has on children’s self esteem, focus, and physical abilities. Mr. Schafer and I have shared students and, because of this, I continue to refer families to Schafer’s ATA. He is especially wonderful working with individuals with special abilities and needs. I have seen these students become more confident and utterly excited to be apart of such a supportive environment. The instructors at Schafer’s ATA are warm and always make people feel welcome in the school. Mr. Schafer’s willingness to go the extra distance is evident. He is an involved and compassionate individual who is a standout in our community. With budget cuts in schools today, physical education is slowly being eliminated to allow more time for other core subjects. Children are needing to seek outside activities to maintain proper health and I feel Martial Arts is a great choice!
