Our mission is to help you raise a confident, focused leader with the life transforming experience that is Martial Arts, while us adults train to get in the best shape of our lives.
Hi, my name is Nelson Kim and I am the owner of OC ATA Martial Arts. When I was a child, I began my martial arts journey and the positive impact it had on my life was remarkable. It was always my dream to someday own my own school, and when I opened OC ATA Martial Arts in 2001, I made a commitment to our community in Ladera Ranch & Irvine to create an enjoyable environment for students to improve their fitness, while building confidence they can carry into their everyday lives.
Our children's martial arts program creates leaders. We do this by teaching the same values you teach at home. Our adult program is second to none. From traditional martial arts to more modern self-defense styles, there is something for everyone at OC ATA Martial Arts. If you are looking to burn major calories, learn self-defense moves and get in the best shape of your life, you must come and check out our program.
Imagine yourself or your child as a stronger, more confident individual in your best physical and mental shape. I want to personally invite you to take advantage of our introductory trial offer and turn that vision into a reality. See you on the mat!
The best studio around with the most incredible, dedicated teachers!!
My son has had a wonderful experience at OCMA. He has learned dicipline, respect as well as martial art skills. He loves his instructors and his fellow classmates are supportive and positive role models.

The instructors here were so great with my kid and so helpful with all of my questions! I would highly recommend this martial arts studio over all others. My kids loved the class and the other parents were so friendly. We have signed up and I can't wait for my children to get their black belts.
Jose Aguilar is amazing with kids and defenetly if not the best at least one of the best instructors out there.
