{Erik Powell} Owner

Hi, my name is Erik Powell

and I'm the owner of Bismarck ATA Martial Arts. When I was a child I had ADHD. As you can imagine, I was extremely hyperactive, unable to focus, lacked self-discipline and self-control. I was regularly bullied and harassed as being the "Class Clown". I lacked self-esteem. I tried every sport that was available, and only when I started ATA Martial Arts in 1995, did I know what I wanted to do! I joined to learn self-defense, to protect myself from those bullies. Unknown to me at the time was how positive an impact it was going to be on my life! After only a few months I started having more self-esteem and more confidence. I started standing up to those bullies. Since then, I never let someone bully me again. After getting my black belt in 1998, It was my dream to someday own my own school in Bismarck and create an enjoyable environment for students to improve their fitness while building confidence, self-discipline, and self-esteem they can carry into their everyday lives, just like I did.
