Master Howard began training in martial arts at the age of 12 After begging to take martial arts since the age of 5, his parents enrolled him in martial arts to help his confidence, discipline and focus. Ever since that first class he has never looked back. He began teaching martial arts in the ATA leadership program at the age of 16.
Since that time, he found teaching martial arts is his passion even teaching throughout his time at the University of Missouri. After graduating college, he chose to open his first ATA martial arts school in his hometown of Salem, MO. In 1999, Master Howard relocated to Jefferson City to accomplish a lifetime dream and own a full time martial arts academy.
He also oversees operations at his Osage Beach ATA location. Today he has helped the ATA change lives by helping students open and/or manage schools in Salem, Osage Beach, Jefferson City, Chesterfield, Olivette, MO as well as schools in Oklahoma City-OK, Broken Arrow-OK, Morgantown and Bridgeport, WV, Overland Park-Kansas and several locations in Brisbane, Australia.
Master Howard attributes much of his success to the great discipline and respect that martial arts has allowed him to develop. He believes that anyone can achieve their goals if they are determined to put the work forth to achieving those goals. Master Howard has a real passion for using martial arts to change people’s lives. By developing their minds and bodies, the possibilities are endless.
