Buckingham’s ATA Black Belt Academy has been teaching Taekwondo since 1989 coaching students of all ages achieve their goals of discipline, focus and leadership.
Mr. and Mrs. Buckingham are both certified to teach pressure points, knife defense, single and double stick, nanchukus, kamma, bo staff, and SHARP (Sexual Harassment and Rape Prevention). They use this training to empower their students and also offer self defense seminars that target specific needs to colleges, businesses, sport teams or women’s groups when asked.
The Karate for Kids and Tiny Tigers programs are the instructional programs for teaching children Martial Arts. By using these programs we can allow a variety of class times for all of our students ranging in ages from 4 to 60+. This also means that by being a full time school with a flexible program we can separate ages and ranks allowing for each individual to learn at his or her own pace while also offering weapons and sparring, or self defense training at the advanced levels of training.
Our unique punch card system allows you to pay for your membership 2 ways (all at once with a 10% discount or monthly for the term of the class credit membership) Basic 45 classes, Black Belt Club 145 classes or Leadership 300 classes. The punch card program and flexibility of schedule encourages students to attend classes as their schedule allows (most come to class 2 times a week ). No worries about vacation, illness or South Dakota weather as its easy and convenient to make up classes any classes not used during the time of the membership still belong to the student and can still be used.
