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 people grow older, they begin to find ways to be more productive and make use of their time. For senior citizens, in particular, they find that there is even more time they need to utilize and want to do so effectively. Many will go out and find other jobs while others will pursue hobbies and activities that they never could before retirement. Martial arts is one activity that many seniors should take advantage of in their pursuit of finding a participatory activity. There are many benefits associated with taking martial arts classes.
Sustain Mental Health
Growing older can be a wonderful thing as people become more experienced and wise in their lifetimes. However, the brain does not function as quickly or healthy as it did during childhood. With that said, seniors tend to experience more issues such as memory loss or slower reactions. Martial arts can significantly help alleviate these symptoms. It does so through the discipline and constant practice of reflexive routines that help seniors keep their mental alertness. The brain is a muscle that needs to be exercised just as much as other muscles within the body. Martial arts for seniors is especially important in maintaining their own mental health and awareness.
Make Friends and Build Community
As seniors grow into their retirements, their friend circles tend to decrease over time. They are no longer going to work each day and seeing their co-workers on a regular basis. Enlisting in and taking martial arts classes gives them a chance to make new friends and build a community. People in martial arts classes share a common interest in the sport. They may all have joined for different reasons, but the outcome is the same. There are a multitude of exercises that involve partner and group activities. This builds teamwork and each person feels connected to the entire group. They all build a sense of camaraderie and hold each other accountable. Again, this is a great reason for seniors to join martial arts classes because they need to be able to socialize and feel welcomed in things that foster that type of behavior.
Exercise is vitally important to everyone, but specifically to senior citizens. Bodily functions and strength are just not the same when it comes to a senior’s body versus people in their 30s. In order to keep up a healthy body, a senior should be sure to build muscle and bone strength. Osteoporosis is one of the most common conditions that any senior will begin to experience. This comes from a weak skeletal structure. To protect their bones, they need to build up their muscle strength. Martial arts tremendously helps with building that muscle strength as well as a person’s overall endurance.
Heart disease is another common ailment for people over the age of 40. Practicing martial arts will significantly reduce a senior’s risk for heart diseases because of the physical routines associated with its art.
Martial arts for seniors should be something that many people consider to be an all- around activity. Not only does it provide a chance for them to be active, but it can give them multiple mental benefits as well. Giving seniors the chance to do something once considered unconventional is an amazing opportunity to give them back their sense of self and confidence.
