Our Mission

Our mission is simple: to provide you with the best instruction we possibly can, to help you develop self-defense, improve your physical fitness, and grow stronger and more focused on the inside too.

We bring you an incredible team of staff members who are all dedicated to this cause, and who have all dedicated their lives to martial arts.

Here's a bit of info about our two head instructors, who have reached amazing heights with the arts:

Senior Master Darrin Palmer opened his first Martial Arts school in 1992 at the age of 21, and has opened several schools since then. Currently he owns or co-owns 3 schools. Sr. Master Darrin Palmer is a 7th Degree Black Belt with the (ATA) American Taekwondo Association.

Mr. Mike Darby has been training with S.M. Palmer since the early 90s and is now retired from the Air Force. Mike Darby is a 4th Degree Black Belt in the ATA. S.M. Palmer and Mr. Darby co-own the Pensacola ATA Martial Art School that opened in 2014.
