Dear Atlanta / Tucker Community

As of March 16th, we had to and will remain closed to the public in support of the safety and health of our student body and community due to the corona virus and its attached health / safety concerns. If you are interested in joining our TMACenter family then know that we look forward to meeting / training with you when all is safe to do so. In the meantime, keep yourself and all family members healthy and know that we will be on the other side of this soon!

Dear TMACenter Students

Though we're not having class at the dojo, we will be utilizing this time to create Individual Class Online Bi-Weekly Videos which will be made available to you every Tuesday and Thursday for you to actively watch & participate at your convenience. As well, we will be conducting Class Online Conferencing on Wednesday and Friday following that Weeks Videos.  Emails are being sent out weekly with regard to our Training Videos being posted and Class Conference links being sent. If you are not getting these emails then please contact us immediately so we can correct this for you... Email us at: or call us at: 404-315-1040.

Keep Living Life

We hope these issues pass quickly. Life cannot stop moving forward and we all simply need to practice responsible habits and take the proper precautions (like washing your hands regularly). I understand this may prompt some people to overreact and pause / cancel their membership. However, we all want a Dojo to return to after this passes so I encourage you to continue your membership, be patient with the situation, follow along with our Training Videos and attend our Bi-Weekly Class Conferences. We will get through this.
