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!!

The Positive Effects of Martial Arts for a Child in School
September 19, 2020
Grade school can be quite the experience for any child. It is a place where a child not only learns academically but one where a child must learn to socialize and function in the world. Unfortunately, there are a lot of negative experiences that a child may have when going through school. Whatever those experiences may be, it would be a good idea to have a child participate in martial arts classes. Doing so will give them the tools they need to survive the school experience. The benefits associated with taking martial arts classes are essential for them to be able to have a positive experience in school.
Helps them earn better grades in school
Getting good grades is reflective of a child’s comprehension of the material. But, it is also indicative of their discipline and responsibility traits. Through martial arts, students are to learn the fundamentals of stretch and physical routines. They also learn to become disciplined with practice and keeping up with their cleanliness of uniforms. Children learn how to be punctual and can focus their daily thoughts on the tasks at hand. Thus, being able to exhibit these positive traits will translate to better grades as schooling requires the proficiency of these characteristics.
Gives them the confidence to stand up to bullies
Bullying is a very prominent and unfortunate experience that many children will either witness or become victims of in their lifetimes. Being a part of martial arts can give children the strength and confidence that they need to stand up to these negative individuals. Not only will they learn about self-defense strategies, they will be able to feel assertive and courageous. Possessing self-confidence is the number one way for a child to be able to stand up for him/herself in any threatening situation. Through martial arts, they will learn that not all conflicts have to be physical. They will possess the mature mindset to tackle any conflict with assurance and pride.
Gives them the ability to make friends
Having friends and keeping them can be the big difference between a positive and negative school experience for children. They will latch onto people who share common interests with them and feel devastated when those relationships disappear. However, for children who regularly practice martial arts, they have a different capacity to make and keep friends in their circle. Besides making friends in the martial arts classes themselves, children are able to easily socialize and collaborate with other students at school. They instill a lot of the same discipline and traits they learn from martial arts in their everyday lives. For instance, they may be first to initiate a conversation with quiet students because they feel confident in themselves to do so.
Being a part of something special such as martial arts can be greatly impactful for children. Especially when it comes to school, children can gain invaluable skills and behaviors that will allow them to have more successful experiences in social settings. Although school is meant to teach them about a variety of things, having martial arts as a supplement can significantly affect the way they approach schooling and their overall experiences.
