ABOUT THE OWNER

Ms. Donna Papa - Chief Instructor, Fifth-Degree Black Belt
Ms. Papa began as a student in our studio in 1997 together with her son as part of a family martial arts program. Having watched her son and friends grow through each of our developmental programs, she is able to offer a unique perspective on teaching our Tiny Tigers and Karate for Kids Programs and knows the valuable impact the ATA can have on growing up.

In 2000, she earned her black belt and became a full-time instructor and co-owner of the studio. Following this, she became heavily involved with the operations of the studio and its program development.

She has remarkable skill in bringing out the best in people and sets a strong example through her own training and success. She has won state champion titles in 2008 and 2014 and trains daily, maintaining a high-level of skill.

In 2011, Ms. Papa took over the business as Chief Instructor. She oversees all operations and program development. In addition to coordinating our three major programs (Tiny Tigers, Karate for Kids, and Adult Taekwondo), she also runs several successful pre-school programs in child development centers in the surrounding communities.
