Mr. Evans does a great job with young beginners. It is when the kids become older (teens) and their skills become advanced (Blackbelt and above) that he struggles to teach them. I would recommend Evans ATA if you are looking for a fun activity for your younger child to participate in. The school is also very political and favored students receive special treatment while other students are expected to follow the rules. If you are looking to make martial arts a long term endeavor or have a teen interetsted in learning, look elsewhere.

I was apprehensive about Tae Kwon Do and martial arts altogether. My daughter was adamant that she wanted to learn, so I did some research and decided to try Evans ATA. I LOVE IT! Mr.Evans is very kind and you can tell he cares about every student. His assistant instructors are also very good and have helped my daughter when she struggles and cheered her on when she succeeds. They are respectful and we have nothing but good to say of the entire experience. There are people from all walks of life and with varying degrees of physical ability - all are welcome! My daughter is currently an orange belt working on her yellow, she's making friends and learning not just martial arts but also about respecting others regardless of rank (or age).

Since joining Evans ATA, my daughter's self-confidence has grown tremendously! The instructors have helped her find her strengths and celebrate them while teaching her to continue to strive for her very best. There is no pressure to go to a ton of tournaments or even to fund-raise (though the fund-raising is made very easy). Families can do what works for them and their schedule. In addition, the class fees are not out of line with any other activity I have enrolled my children in, and I find that this has been more long-term benefits than many other activities we have tried. The class schedules are varied throughout the week, which makes it easier on our family schedule. They do a wonderful job communicating with parents and students, and their website is extremely helpful. Overall, this has been a very good experience for our family!

My son enjoys doing taekwondo at this school. The staff/instructors are dedicated to students and their success. There's lots of opportunties for the students (of all ages) to get involved in the community, after school activities other than taekwondo class and participate in tournaments (in Iowa/Midwest and National). Parents are able to watch students during each class and discuss concerns with the instructors. There's a Parent Organization that discusses everything from concerns from parents to fundraisers to help improve the school. Class times are nearly every day and different times each day, making it easy for each student to be able to attend at least a couple classes per week even with a busy schedule. Students get a mix of discipline, self control, encouragement and they get to have fun at the same time!
