ATA Martial Arts Owner

Hi, I’m Senior Master Matthew Blomquist.


I'm the general manager of ATA's Bentonville Martial Arts, and a Master Instructor in the ATA. When I began my martial arts training I always dreamed of running my own school to teach the incredible life skills that I learned to a community of people!

In 2008, the ATA made a commitment to the community of Bentonville and Northwest Arkansas to create an enjoyable environment for students to improve their fitness while building confidence that they can carry into their everyday lives. Take advantage of one of our amazing web specials today - join us as we empower ourselves and our community with martial arts!

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.

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.
