Gold Star ATA Martial Arts


Thank you Alyssa Cochnar the Cochnar family and instructors for a gun way to celebrate Christmas!
Good afternoon, Crete area families! I work with high school foreign exchange students and am looking for a martial arts loving family to host a student from South Korea, starting immediately!

Kang Min! What an awesome kid he is, he is Christian, loves his family, very social, has practiced martial arts in the past and boxing! Let's find him a full program home or welcome family (3-4 weeks) today!

Our students come with their own spending money, they just need a loving, supportive environment, their own bed, a bedroom (can be shared with same gender and similar age).

Can you help make Kang Min's dream of being an exchange student a reality? He needs to start this month, so please contact me as soon as possible if you are interested.

Thank you!
Don DeLauter

Martial arts teaches you discipline and focus, which can help build confidence in your ability to achieve your goals. It can also help you feel stronger and more capable, which can boost your self-esteem. It can be a fun and rewarding activity that allows you to challenge yourself and see progress over time.

Whether you're a child or an adult, beginner or advanced, martial arts can be a great way to improve your self-confidence and overall well-being.


It is not just about physical strength and combat skills, but also about mental and emotional well-being. The journey of learning is never-ending, as there is always something new to discover and improve upon.

By treating Karate as a lifetime study, practitioners can develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for the art, as well as a greater sense of personal growth and fulfillment.


Ever want to just check out a martial arts school? Well, feel free to come in and take a look 👀. We are open Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.


Here are some benefits of martial arts that can help you get back on track post-summer:

1. Improved cardiovascular health and endurance
2. Increased strength and flexibility
3. Enhanced mental clarity and focus
4. Stress relief and improved emotional well-being
5. Boosted self-confidence and self-esteem

What are you waiting for?!

Practicing martial arts requires a great deal of determination and focus. Staying focused can help you achieve your goals and become a better martial artist. It can also help you get focused in school or work.

Staying focused in martial arts is a journey, not a destination. Keep practicing and stay committed to your goals, and you will see progress over time. Keep practicing and you will see progress in your life as well.
