Martial Arts Classes In San Diego

Welcome to Church's ATA Martial Arts, directed by World Champions Senior Master Ken Church and his wife, Mrs. Trish Church.

Because of their perseverance, dedication and personal commitment about being hands on with their students, they have been honored by the American Taekwondo Association (ATA) as the #1 school each and every year since 2001. Over the past 45+ years, the ATA has helped thousands of children and adults literally change their lives.

All students can develop the confidence and self-esteem it takes to stand up for themselves and not be victims. Experienced students have the courage to take on new challenges--not just at the studio, but at home, school, or in their careers. Our Black Belts and future Black Belts do not quit when faced with difficulty; they are too strong to back away from making decisions and reaching their goals.

Will you or your child become our next Black Belt? Take the first step now: try a class and see what we are all about. We’re sure you’ll want to continue. Whether you want to lose weight, learn how to protect yourself, get in shape, meet new people; or if your child needs discipline or an outlet for after-school energy, we’re here for you!


We teach all our members to focus on and be present in the moment - and in this age of distractions and sensory overload, this is a skill which returns immediate results in all aspects one's life.  Here are some interesting facts about our Martial Arts School:

  • Our members are from all walks of life; we have students, attorneys, doctors, engineers, military and law enforcement all training in a fun, team oriented family environment;
  • We have kids that have been training for years that leave to top colleges and universities in the country, thanks in part to the discipline and focus on hard work they learned through martial arts.  This is something we take a great amount of pride in. 
  • There are always new generations of individuals and families coming in to pursue the ongoing legacy.  It is a tradition in martial arts to pass down the knowledge one receives in their training and many students become instructors, often ending up owning their own schools.  

It is our goal to inspire strength, discipline, confidence and focus in our students, to help them discover the leader that is within them.  We believe every child has the potential to be a leader, they just need someone to believe in them. As parents ourselves, we understand the challenges of raising a confident and focused child in an age where there are more distractions than ever.

And while the kids have their fun, our adult program is second to none.  From traditional martial arts to more modern self-defense styles, there is something for everyone at Church's Martial Arts.  If you are looking to burn major calories, learn self-defense moves and get in the best shape of your life, you must come and check out our adult program.

Imagine yourself as a stronger, more confident individual in the best shape of your life. We want to personally invite you to take advantage of our introductory trial offer, and turn that vision into a reality.  

It would be a privilege to meet you and your child to have them step into the wonderful world of martial arts.
