Hello! We are Daron and Melissa Bilyeu, and we are the owners of Sulphur Springs ATA Martial Arts here in Sulphur Springs, TX. Our school has been delivering the values of Songahm Taekwondo to families in Hopkins County since 1986. We are proud to have been the owners of this great school since 2006! Since our first day, we have made our commitment to create a safe, fun environment where students can improve their fitness and build the confidence and discipline needed to succeed in life.

As part of the world’s largest martial arts organization, the American Taekwondo Association, we are changing the world one black belt at a time! From traditional martial arts, self-defense, weapons training, and our ATA X-treme program, there is something for everyone! Our ATA Tigers program gives our smallest students a safe place to learn safety skills while also practicing self-discipline. Karate for Kids is unmatched in teaching the future leaders of America. Teens and Adults training provides a great calorie-burning workout and teaches self-defense skills that everyone should know.
