Sometimes you meet people, who have a profound impact in your life. Sir John McNally is one of those people. He is not only an excellent teacher but also a great human being. His passion for taekwondo is infectious. Me and my family have been going to ATKDA for almost three years and we have enjoyed every single session. My children are really fond of the lessons and attending them have made a positive impact to their health and personality. I will highly recommend ATKDA for anybody looking to start a healthy lifestyle and learn some important life skills.

Mr McNally is a fantastic instructor and relates very well with students of all ages. My son, Shayan, has only been going to ATKDA for a few months, but I already notice how much he has grown in confidence. He very much enjoys going to the club and intends to continue long into the future. Highly recommended for all kids who want to build up self esteem and keep their body and mind fit and healthy.
