We had our son's 4th birthday party at Lee's ATA and it exceeded our expectatio
ns. The intro class with the kids was great. Teaching respect, manners and karate moves. During the party, the staff a...lso engaged the parents and the kids got to fight a punching bag they were holding. We plan on starting karate lessons and our friends were very impressed with the party. Great summer birthday idea! We also brought pizza and cake in which worked well. Thank you Ms. Caballero and her helper, they really made the party great. Thank you.
PV ATA has blessed our family so much! We have been through a lot this year, and although we were a new family there, they went above and beyond to support and encourage us. The instructor
s are very... well trained and are gifted teachers. The staff is friendly and welcoming every time we walk through the doors. Our children have an additional community where they are learning important life skills. As an adult, I never imagined I would begin learning TKD, but 6 months in I am going strong and plan to continue long term. :)
A home away from home with people that all love each other's kids as if they were their own. The final regional tournament
was April 5th the day we were to move into our new home. I cried cause it mea...nt my son would miss being in opening ceremonies which he busted his butt off learning and wouldn't be able to compete. The teachers and patents found out and thanks to the many offers Aden not only went he came home with 3 medals a plaque and had the best time time of his life! I highly recommend anyone with busy kids, shy kids, heck any kids to go give it two weeks tell them Aden Abbas sent you and I promise after two weeks your kids will listen better and will have a new love of life and you the parents will make friends too! I love you ATA and thank you Master Lee for the personal email about Aden he wants me to print and frame it!
The best ATA school in Phoenix, hands down. ALL THE INSTRUCTOR
S (Mr. Jonas, Ms Perez, Ms Caballero, Mr. Peters... the list keeps going) are truly amazing. Thank You!

Ms Perez doing her tiebreak of Open #18point4. She completed 21 deadlifts of 155lbs in 22sec flat. She actually did this yesterday too but we made her redo it for the video! 😂 She killed it and that gives her one of the best tie break times in the 🌎. Her humility makes us all even more proud of her. She came back to PV and coached over a dozen elite TKD athletes on a Sun after this helping everyone get ready for #SWDistrictChampionships and then onto #SongahmWorldChampionships.
We are so incredibly proud of the perseverance shown by both of our academy’s new 4*. Mr Sanchez has worked hard preparing himself to retest over the last year. He showed up and crushed his boards 👊on first attempt. Mr Peters has grown so SO much over the years, starting Taekwondo 🥋 at 4 yrs old. He earned his black belt at 7, his 2* just after his 9th birthday 🎂; his 3* earned at 11 yrs old meaning he would have to wait 7 LOOOONG years to test again. During that period he became a Junior Instructor, trainer up and tested through all of his levels earning his black collar as a fully certified instructor; he earned his judging chevron and has years of experience as a judge already; pushed himself through one of the hardest curriculum high schools in he state, earned his way into Barrett Honors College at ASU 👿; competed in cross country and soccer; trained in Crossfit 🏋️♀️ ; and became an elite competitor earning 8 Pan Am Championships 🥇 represented Team USA 🇺🇸 in sparring 🥊 and Combat sparring; and 2 World Titles 🥇 and is currently ranked #1 in the World 🌎 in the 3 Triple Crown 👑 categories. More important than all of his accolades, the fact that he has grown into one of the best young men that I have ever known, someone that I am proud that I could be any part of his growth and development, and someone that I am excited to see what he can accomplish in his life. I hope that it is right here next to us but no matter what he does or where, we will always support him. He is always trying to do what he is asked and has integrity to always do what he feels is the right thing to do. We love him and are glad that he is one of our instructors. Congratulations 🎊🎈🎉 to you. With what you accomplished as a kid we can’t wait to see what you’re going to accomplish as a man! We love you, -staff of Lee’s PV, PHX ATA-
