Master Celestino Argudin and Mrs. Karen Argudin Port St John Black Belt Academy

Hi, we are Master Celestino Argudin and Mrs. Karen Argudin.

WE KNOW HOW DIFFICULT AND CONFUSING
FINDING A MARTIAL ARTS SCHOOL CAN BE.

We remember when we were children, feeling uncertainty about beginning martial arts. We wondered if we had what it took to succeed and we weren't the most athletic or confident children - quite the opposite. Little did we know that beginning our martial arts journey would be one of the most profound experiences of our lives!

When we opened our school in 2006, we made a commitment to serving and empowering the community of Port St John by teaching children and adults the confidence, leadership, and fitness skills that can only be achieved through martial arts.

We Share & teach The Same Values You Teach At Home.

The ATA Martial Arts programs have a strong focus on personal development. The foundations of our morals, values and core character traits are formed in our early years. For this reason, the ATA Martial Arts program is an essential way to enhance the growth and personal development of young students of all ages.
