Martial Arts Classes In Avon Lake

My name is Erin Panichi and I am the owner of Avon Lake ATA. 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 Avon Lake ATA in 2012, I made a commitment to our community in Avon Lake to create an enjoyable environment for students to improve their fitness, while building confidence they can carry into their everyday lives. It is my privilege and honor to take the the knowledge I have received in my own martial arts training and pass it on to the students at my school.


Here are just a few of the skills we teach at Avon Lake ATA:

  • FOCUS: We teach all of our members to focus through forms training. In this age of distractions and sensory overload, focus is a skill, which returns immediate results in all aspects of life.
  • CONFIDENCE: We teach students confidence and how to use their voice through our bully prevention and stranger danger training in every class.
  • GOAL SETTING: Students learn goal setting strategy using our belt rank system. They set small achievable goals each class that, when put together, create big achievements like getting a new belt. These same strategies help kids get better grades in school and excel in other activities.  

Before Erin Panichi opened this location she managed one in Mentor, Ohio that consistently ranked in the Top Ten of the 1,700 American Taekwondo Association (www.ataonline.com) schools nationwide all 7 years she worked there and won the ATA’s National School of the Year award 2 of those 7 years.

Our chief instructors are full time martial artists. They devote 100% of their energy to helping children and adults achieve their goals through martial arts. Since our instructors do not have “day jobs,” they are not distracted or tired during class time. All of their attention and focus is on the students. Certified instructors are subject to a background check and complete a youth protection program.

Our goal is to inspire each and every member to achieve Black Belt Excellence by providing:

  • A state-of-the-art training facility
  • A comprehensive martial arts curriculum
  • Highly skilled and motivated Instructors

Avon Lake ATA has a staff full of instructors who have something to offer everyone. We are lucky enough to have both male and female instructors who are able to teach martial arts to children and adults. Not only are the instructors great teachers, they are very talented martial artists as well. Our instructors have not only won national awards for their teaching - many also hold state titles.  Instructors are required to go a minimum of one national or international training event per year to continue to improve their personal taekwondo skills, teaching methods, and learn new exciting curriculum. Private lessons are always available to students as well as regular time in class. Our curriculum is based on the concepts of "positive mental attitude" and "high goal setting".

We offer what we believe to be the best martial art in the world. Taekwondo is an exciting and powerful martial art known for its dynamic kicking and hand techniques. Although these martial art techniques are centuries old, our programs are always evolving to keep pace with the rapidly changing world.
