Keller ATA not only teaches Taewkwondo they teach respect, discipline, self control & real life skills such as how to respond to bullies, stranger alert and so much more. Ms. Mary & Ms N are awesome instructors & the leadership team and staff are great! They have a slogo - We're not just a school, WE ARE FAMILY - and they mean it! My 6 year old grandson Hayden attends and has advanced to a Green Belt and is now Sparing. Last evening his parents tried a free lesson and now they too will be joining the Keller ATA Family.

Our son, Landon, has been attending Keller ATA for over a year now & will continue for many more. We started out with a free trial & never looked back. Ms. Nero & everyone else at Keller ATA have become our second family. We feel very comfortable & welcomed every time we walk through the door. I really can't say enough about Ms. Nero's methods of teaching & her awesome attitude with her students. Our son has benefited from this in so many ways.

Mrs Mary has so much love & caring in her that she really works with ALL the kids on all their individual needs. With that being said there are NO WORDS to express my gratitude that I have for Mrs Mary-- I have thought so hard on what to say for a review, once you meet Mrs Mary & give her school a try you won't be disappointed! Also the kids look forward to going to class every week she makes it fun & what they learn is so powerful not just taekwondo but actual self control, discipline, and protection, & love all the kids just love her!! give her a visit!

Both of our children have thrived learning Tae Kwon Do (and so much more) from Ms. Mary at Keller ATA. I learned about Keller ATA reading an article in Thrive magazine, which talked about a studio that accepts children with special needs. Both of my children require a little extra time and patience, and I am always amazed at how well they do in class and for testing. This studio & Ms. Mary are a blessing for our children and our family. So very thankful to have found Keller ATA!

This place has been wonderful for my kids! They were taking taekwondo at another place and were getting frustrated because they were being pushed to move forward too fast. We came to visit Keller ATA and my kids fell in love! Ms. Mary and Ms. N have been wonderful to them and made the transition to a new school as smooth as possible. They are learning so much more than just taekwondo...they are learning self defense and life skills. They are most importantly learning self confidence! This is a wonderful place with wonderful people!

We love Keller ATA! Their motto says it all, "we are more than a school, we're a family". Everything flows from this motto. My kids are always asking when their next lesson is. Mrs. Nero, and Ms. N are knowledgeable and kind, yet firm in their expectations and helpful in guiding students to reach their potential. I could not imagine taking my family anywhere else.

Kids can learn respect and key values important for growing up. They also learn stranger awareness and ways to defend themselves in different situations. Offers great exercise and opportunities to grow in the sport. As for adults, Keller ATA offers programs that can fit whatever your looking for; fitness, competition, family, or a sport that you can join in with your kids. With all different levels of competition you can find whats right for you. In other words its perfect for everyone of all ages.

Keller ATA has given my son, who has ADHD, a sport that he loves and has succeeded in! Mary is wonderful with children! With a touch of love and laughter, she knows what they are capable of and expects no less. She reinforces the same family values that we teach at home while also teaching the sport of Taekwondo, discipline and self control. When you walk into the family oriented atmosphere you feel at home and welcomed. And after 3 years, my 7 & 9 year old still look forward to their lessons at Keller ATA!

My older son earned his Black Belt with Ms. Nero and my younger son liked it so much he wanted to take classes. Mary and Gabby are great with the kids. They help them deal with strangers and bullying while teaching them self confidence and respect. It's such a good workout that they talked me into joining too. There are no contracts and everyone is very friendly. They also have a great leadership program and teach ATA Creative and XMA forms and weapons.

My son has is 15, has Down Syndrome and has taken classes with Ms. Mary for over 3 years. She is wonderful with kids and adults of all ages and abilities. Not only does she teach traditional forms and weapons but she is great at talking to the kids about stranger awareness and self defense, even offering free classes. In addition I like how she involves the older kids or higher belt kids with the younger kids as a sort of mentoring program. My son really benefits from the physical activity and the memorization of the steps in his form. She is truly concerned for each and every student and wants them to advance to the best of their ability. She is awesome!!
Mary Nero is very good with kids. She teaches them discipline and respect for others. I would highly recomend Keller ATA for anyone looking for a fun and reasonably priced activity.
We enrolled our daughter so she would develope confidence & coordination. Ms Mary is a great instructor that addresses a large variety of real life issues while teaching students the moves to advance in the sport. She is learning to protect herself outside of class, if she has too. Definately worth the money to be part of ATA. Thank you Ms. Mary & Miss. N! We recommend you every chance we get.
My boys are 6 & 4 years old and they both LOVE Ms. Mary! She is so wonderful instructing little kids & her lessons are for real life concerns. Overall it is a great sport for my boys (listen skills, coordination, memorization, and self defense).
