Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update from Larry Hoover’s ATA Martial Arts

Posted: May 24, 2021

Our students and their safety have always been our number one priority. 

As we navigate through these times of rapid change we will be implementing changes in our course of training. We will offer online training along with scheduled semi-private classes at the center.  These semi-private classes will never be more than 4 students at a time and will allow only one parent or guardian to attend. 

In keeping with the guidelines of 10 or fewer people, each student will be given the opportunity to attend one semi-private class per week. If you are interested in having your student or yourself take part in the semi-private class please email us at hooversmartialarts@midco.net with name and rank so we can begin the scheduling process.

Making Your New Year’s Resolutions Stick: 5 Top Tips From The Experts

“New Year, New Me!” It’s a slogan that has become so familiar that it’s almost a cliche this time of year, with a torrent of jokes and memes on social media to drive the point home. Most people fail to keep their resolutions, often giving up completely by the time Summer rolls around. As many as 88% of resolutioners are said to abandon the change they sought in January, with as many as 43% lasting less than one month! 

Still, science tells us that the new year is a great time to make positive changes in our lives because we are able to dissociate ourselves from our previous habits and better envision ourselves with new patterns and new beginnings. There is a reason why the new year has been a time of goal-setting and vision-casting ever since the ancient Babylonians, thousands of years ago. And with the vast majority of New Year’s resolutions involving health and fitness, it’s never a better time than NOW to find expert tips for success!
