Eight years ago, John Kruger decided he wanted to try martial arts; it was time to get off the couch and do something. After completing one class, he was hooked. Six months later John became a SWAT member; six months after that an instructor...today, along with his wife, he owns 2 schools.
Jen and John Kruger, the owners of the Danville and Decatur ATA Black Belt Academies, believe in what they do. While they have no children of their own, they have fifty that on a daily basis, show them respect, love, and hard work. Children that look forward to coming to see them, fear bringing them a bad report card, and grin ear to ear when they receive a high five.
The ATA maintains that Every Child Is A Winner and Every Child Is Special. The Danville & Decatur ATA Black Belt Academies teach by that every day. Our students are our children, and we treat each of them with respect, help them to set goals, and challenge them both mentally and physically. Each student learns self-discipline, self-control, honor, and respect; they also learn to be part of our ATA family, and the pride in accomplishing something they thought never possible.
