UpLift Is a wonderful place! All of the instructors are very caring and take time to help all students succeed. I cannot recommend them enough!
From the very first time we met Mr. and Mrs. Jung they have been very kind. My kid was reluctant and shy when we went to sign up for classes. But Mr. Jung patiently showed her various moves and after a few minutes she jumped right in. We've been coming here for a few years now and all I can say is this place is excellent. All the instructors work so well with the kids and they know every single kid that comes in by name. At the beginning of the pandemic when schools and activities were shut down, Uplift worked continuously to provide classes through Zoom for all the kids and that was so great because that was one constant that didn't change for them. If you're looking for a martial arts place this place is it!
I highly recommend Uplift Martial for all ages! I love their focus on individual growth and encouraging students to work their hardest. They make every student feel supported and part of a big family.
We love Uplift!! Mr and Mrs Jung are so kind, caring and inspiring. They make every person that enters through their doors feel welcome and valued. They have an impact, not only when it comes to Tae Kwon Do...but, especially with children, in their homes and community too!
We have been coming here for years and we couldn't ask for better staff or martial arts facility! Not only do they have quality instruction, but they also prioritize character building and development. Give it a try!
My daughters have been coming here for 4+ years and I highly recommend this school to every kid and to every parent who is looking for a very beneficial and worthwhile extracurricular activity for their children! The owners are awesome and the staff are caring and extremely positive and patient. They provide a very nurturing environment and go the extra mile to make every student feel welcomed and accepted. It's also a great place to make new friends, regardless of age and ability. My daughters love attending classes and the school is a second home to them.
Amazing. Caring, who are very helpful and thoughtful. They are very good people who are amazing teachers.
By far the best martial art school in the area. The staff is amazing, they have lots of patience and encourage students to try their best. Uplift has been part of our children for many years. Angel, Analia and Luis all started as tiny tigers, and you guys are so amazing that I joined a year ago. Kudos to Mr. & Mrs. Jung for the great work. You guys are amazing!!
The Jungs have provided an exceptional martial arts experience for our son! This is his 5th year attending classes there and they have consistently had his best interest at heart, encouraged, supported and pushed him to excel not only on the mat but in life in general. Great mentors! So grateful to have them as part of our "village" while raising our son.
We are so fortunate in West Sacramento to have Uplift martial arts, and Mr. and Mrs. Jung. My son who is now 19 attended martial arts classes with Mr. Jung and learned so much not only about martial arts but also about the importance of integrity and character. My 7 year old daughter now attends classes at Uplift and I feel so lucky to have small business owners like the Jungs in our community that truly care about our children and youth. It is important to give our children opportunities for physical activity and this is a perfect fit for our family, and my daughter loves it. If I could give Uplift more than 5 stars I would!
We absolutely love Uplift martial arts and all of their instructors. We have been able to safely participate in online zoom and in person (both indoor and outdoor) classes without any worries. The safety measures they take to ensure social distance and sanitation are so great and easy for our 6 year old to understand and follow. We plan to be with Uplift throughout good times and global pandemic ❤️ Highly recommend to keep your kids (and you!) active while learning the discipline and respect that martial arts brings!
A wonderful business run by a compassionate, positive couple. They genuinely care about their students. My kids have not only learned taekwondo but they have more confidence, positive mind set, and self discipline. Thank you for always making them feel included.
Wonderful caring environment. Very supportive. Great for all ages.

Mr. and Mrs. Jung and all of the instructors are amazing! My boys love, love, love going there and often refer to them as their "other family". And after several months of watching....I started participating in the adult class! A wonderful, safe place that teaches safety, discipline, focus and also provides enjoyment. Perfect combination!

My three year old has been in the Tiny Tigers class for about 6 months. I've been nothing but impressed with the way Mr. and Mrs. Jung run this place. They have a knack for making kids feel comfortable and engaging them at their level, while also having high expectations. I can't wait for my 18month old to be old enough to start, too. I'm hoping both my kiddos will be part of the Jung's ATA family for a long time!

We’ve been part of the ATA Southport family since 2013... Mr and Mrs Jung and all of the instructors are fabulous with the kids and so generous with the community. Encourage anyone considering this for their kids to come in and give it a try.

My daughter and I enjoyed every moment in each of our journeys to obtain our black belts and my daughter her 2nd degree. The entire staff is motivated to teaching Tae Keon Do and the discipline and fun that go with it. From getting “Schneider’d” and seeing some of our instructors graduate high school and move onto college. David and Anna-Marie Jung are awesome owners, trainers, and community supporters. We have moved on to Texas but my daughter and I proudly sport our Jung Sweatshirts everywhere we go. Thank you for everything!!

As a parent, their main focus is always their children and the success they achieve. Many parents want to provide for their children what they did not have growing up, and just want them to be the best they can in life. Confidence in children is directly correlated with self esteem for kids and this all links back to the parent. Parenting skills are so vital! The more confidence in kids, the more success they will come into.
Here are the tips:
Listen – Listening to people will get you very far in life. You cannot always be the one talking and be the center of attention. Listening carefully and really paying attention will allow people to process information and become genuine.
Respect– There is nothing more important than learning the importance of respect and knowing how to be respectful. It is important to treat people the way that you would like to be treated and as a parent, respect needs to be taught.
Communicate – Communicating effectively will raise someone’s self esteem immensely. The ability to speak to someone and get your point across is a great quality. Again with parenting, this is something that needs to be taught and also practiced.
Dedicate Time – Dedicating time for your loved ones will make them know how important they really are to you. There is time for work, play, and focusing on family. It can be something as simple as family dinners together for an hour or so.
Teach – Parents cannot assume that their children will just know how to do things, they need to be taught! Parents need to lead by example as well, they cannot tell their children not to do something if they constantly do it themselves, and it will not work that way.
Support – Everyone needs a support system no matter how young or old they are. Knowing that you are not alone and have people to confide in and talk to is very important. Most people have their families as their strongest support system, but sports teams, art classes, school; those are all great support systems also.
Correct – Correcting poor behavior is important. One cannot allow their children to continue to do something over and over the wrong way or allow them to be disrespectful. Addressing the issue and suggesting how it will not be tolerated must occur otherwise the bad habit will just continue.
Reinforce – Reinforcing ground rules should be common sense, but it really isn’t apparently. So many times have there been articles about, my children walk all over me – why? Children need rules to follow and they must be reinforced. If an answer is “no,” that’s the answer, no explanation is needed! If your child’s bedtime is 8 o’clock, it’s 8 o’clock not 9 or 10.
Live – Living may seem like a weird tip, but living the way and practicing the rules that are laid down is equally as important for the parent as it is for the children.
Relax – It is so easy to get wrapped up in everyday life and the struggles that the world has to offer. Take a breather and relax, you really deserve it! Having family and friends is what is important, there is no need to stress out over every little issue – life is just to short for that nonsense.
These are ten tools to keep in mind when bringing up kids or growing up yourself! Over time people just grow accustomed to certain ways and pick up bad habits. Life doesn’t have to be stressful and everyone deserves to be successful!
