Welcome to the ATMA!

Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2023!


Classes start back from Tuesday 3rd January, with the exception of Bedworth - that will restart on 10th January.


This year's grading dates have been added to the site and other events, such as tournaments and seminars can also be seen on the calendar found on the Dates for your Diary page.



More road trips are planned this year and students are always welcome to come with us. Visiting and training with other associations expands your knowledge and understanding of not just your martial arts, but the arena in which we work.


New classes are planned for this year and look out for Senior seminars and themed seminars - we've already got John Johnston and Ian Abernethy booked in!


Remember - this site is a vital resource for our students - it contains most of the information required to train with us. As for other associations that look at this site- none of the information is top secret, please use it - we're glad it's of use!

New Gup Grading Assessment Sheet...

Your new Gup Grading Assessment sheet - this example covers the first section. I've posted a copy of each sheet for each level on our Facebook ATMA Student Group and in all individual Messenger groups.

Please read.

Those questions at the top also count towards your overall score. 70% required at this level.

Want to be kept up to date...?

If you're a member of ATMA Karate and want to be kept up to date on things, the best place is our private Facebook group, ATMA Students. This is updated on a daily basis and is suitable for children to look at. It's all things ATMA and is monitored - all posts other than the admin posts have to be approved. Just send us a member request.

Open Seminar with iain Abernethy, May 2022...it's all about the understanding of Nihanchi!

Just one of the many dojangs visited with GM Giacobbe - our great friends at North East Tang Soo Do Association, Master Charlie Featherstone and his students!

Great Seminar with John Johnston - March 2022

2023 Calendar of events...

I've added an at-a-glance calendar to the Dates for your Diary page. It's also on the ATMA Student Group on Facebook.

Nice little side kick drill!

Student Manual with links...

We've divided the Student Manual into two parts - one containing the syllabus requirements, with links to the YouTube videos and you can download it free from the Documents and Information page.  The rest of the information about our art and the club - information that you'll need for your written knowledge tests, as well as things you should know and frequently ask about, can be found on the sub pages of the Documents and Information section.

Take a look at the Student Resources page and download the Student Manual document. Try the links and let me know if you have any trouble accessing them.

Gradings are back on track! The Dan and Gup gradings we've held this year so far have been of an amazing standard and we're so proud of the way our students have stood up to the challenges of the past two years and they're shining right now. Keep up the good work!
