Martial Arts Classes In Sioux Falls

Hi my name is Larry Hoover and I am the owner of Hoover’s ATA Martial Arts. I have over 45 years’ experience in martial arts and have invested my passion in Sioux Falls for the past 31 years. I am a Chief Master 8th Degree Black Belt and have owned and operated the ATA Martial Arts Academy in Sioux Falls since 1986. With over 130,000 active members in the American Taekwondo Association, I am currently ranked 14.  My taekwondo academy has been selected “School of the Year” four times, chosen out of over 1,100 taekwondo academies nationwide. We have also been voted the number one martial arts center in Sioux Falls since the category was included with the Sioux Falls Local Best.

My job is to teach a system of progression that is based off of simply doing one thing, doing your best.  Our mission statement is to teach more than martial arts, we teach leadership and life skills.  We have been helping parents give their kids an edge in life since 1986.  Karate for Kids is a nationally proven program for fun, confidence and is an excellent respect builder.


We teach all of our members to focus on and be present in the moment and our curriculum is based on two concepts: “positive mental attitude” and “high goal setting.” We feel so positive about this program that we promise to give you and your family the most professional, well supervised, and the highest quality classes available in any sport or art. Here are some interesting facts about Hoover's ATA Martial Arts:

  • All classes are taught and supervised by nationally certified instructors that are required to complete an intensive three-year trainee internship. This martial arts center is a member of the American Taekwondo Association, one of the world’s largest martial arts organizations.
  • 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 their inner leader. I believe every child has the potential to be a leader, they just need someone to believe in them. I understand the challenges of raising a confident and focused child in an age where there are more distractions than ever. 

Individual attention is a feature of each and every class, allowing all students to progress quickly and confidently toward their personal goals.  Our instructors take their responsibility seriously as role models for younger students, teaching them the importance of strong character, leadership, and good values.

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 Hoover's ATA 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. I 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.
