Private Self Defense Lessons
Sensei Pat was wonderful! We held a self defense class at work for 20 ladies at our office andJun 10, 2019Verified
If you are seeking an incredibly knowledgeable and caring academy to attend, this is it! Pat Pusateri Sensei individually tailored self-defense lessons for me down to every detail. We started with an ample amount of background information to create a solid foundation to base strategies off of. Each week we reviewed previously-learned tactics and added new mechanisms; I never felt overwhelmed. This was not only an amazing learning experience for my body, but also strengthened my inner voice in ways I never imagined.Sep 19, 2018Review from Facebook
I always feel like Sensei Pat and her staff train the whole person, body and spirit. The aren’t just teaching karate, they are teaching respect, patience, appreciation, discipline, dedication, and so much more.Jul 26, 2018

I am extremely fortunate to have known Sensei Pat all these years. Her sincerity, enthusiasm and dependability are traits I have attempted to mirror since 1997. My daughter started training in 2016 and she could not have a better role model. My son is expecting to start training soon! ATKA has several different options to help improve your heath and well-being: Traditional Shotokan Karate, ages 4 and up. Traditional Okinawan Kobudo, ages 13 and up. Private and group lessons, tailored to your needs. Please contact Sensei Pat for more info!Aug 23, 2018
