Cox ATA Martial Arts Owner

Hi, I’m Kalob Cox.


I remember when I was child, feeling uncertainty about beginning martial arts. I wondered if I had what it took to succeed and I wasn’t the most athletic or confident child - quite the opposite. Little did I know that beginning my martial arts journey would be one of the most profound experiences of my life!

When I opened my school in 2012, I made a commitment to serving and empowering the community of Magnolia & Conroe by teaching children and adults the confidence, leadership, and fitness skills that can only be achieved through martial arts. We are committed to helping people and families lay a strong foundation, that allows them to grow stronger; mentally, physically and emotionally, by way of martial arts and life skill training.

We Share & teach The Same Values You Teach At Home.

The ATA Martial Arts programs have a strong focus on personal development. The foundations of our morals, values and core character traits are formed in our early years. For this reason, the ATA Martial Arts program is an essential way to enhance the growth and personal development of young students of all ages.

by People of Any Age


• Train Constantly - No matter where you are at, you should always have discipline and mindset that you are training
• Live By Example - No matter where you are or who you are around, people should know that you live your life with integrity and honor by your actions
• Mentor - You should always be looking to help & guide people with the knowledge that you have received in your training.
• Believe In Yourself - Always set goals & believe that you can achieve them

Instructors train their students to the best of their ability. Some students come fit, while others have come 100 pounds overweight. Most come with limited flexibility. Adults start at any age, as we have had some adults who started as late as age 65, and have still earned their black belts. As a student, you are looked upon as an individual, never compared to anyone else. Your instructors will be with you every step of the way. All that is expected is a willingness to try.


Songahm Taekwondo is the style of martial arts practiced by ATA Martial Arts students.
The journey from White Belt to Black Belt (10 belts total) is one of incremental learning and skill development that students of any age any fitness level can embark on.


One of the most fun parts of martial arts training is the ability to test your skills by competing in a tournament. Tournaments are not only fun for competitors, but they also become a great social experience for parents as well! There are currently 130,000 ATA Martial Arts members worldwide. ATA Martial Arts students compete in local tournaments against other ATA schools, advancing from District levels to State levels, to a yearly Spring National competition in Las Vegas, NV. The competition winners gather at the ATA World Expo Tournament in Little Rock, AR in the summer, competing against finalists from all over the planet in one of largest martial arts competitions in the world.
