Ken Hoops ATA Chanhassen Family Martial Arts

Hi, I’m Ken Hoops.


I remember when I was child, feeling uncertainty about beginning martial arts. I wondered if I had what it took to succeed and I wasn’t the most athletic or confident child - quite the opposite. Little did I know that beginning my martial arts journey would be one of the most profound experiences of my life!

When I opened my school in 2006, I made a commitment to serving and empowering the community of Chanhassen by teaching children and adults the confidence, leadership and fitness skills that can only be achieved through martial arts.

We Share & teach The Same Values You Teach At Home.

The ATA Martial Arts programs have a strong focus on personal development. The foundations of our morals, values and core character traits are formed in our early years. For this reason, the ATA Martial Arts program is an essential way to enhance the growth and personal development of young students of all ages. 


You may have experienced boredom with your usual fitness routine or reached a plateau in your performance or physical fitness results. ATA Martial Arts for adults is the perfect alternative to a boring gym routine, as it helps you develop into your maximum potential both physically and mentally by providing real life self-defense strategies in a a fun, focused environment.
