After my children started at Schafer’s ATA I noticed how much fun the adults in the class were having. Everyone was friendly, encouraging, and inclusive. Not being an athlete, I wondered if it would be too difficult for me. Now I am a second degree black belt and can’t imagine life without taekwondo. And I’ve changed in some unexpected ways. Sure, I am more confident and physically stronger than before, but I am also friendlier and more encouraging to others. The lifeskills practiced in class, especially in the Leadership program, have influenced all areas of my life. Mr. Schafer has been an incredible mentor to my daughter, who is now an adult and has opened her own ATA club. I’ve watched so many kids and teens blossom under his amazing skill and guidance that we parents will always be grateful. It’s been the most valuable experience of our lives.
