Meet the Instructor
Ms. Ali Barta
When all her friends were joining popular team sports like soccer, basketball, and volleyball, Ms. Ali Barta knew she wanted to do something different. Ms. Ali was drawn to Taekwondo because of the sport’s aspect of individual growth – it pushed her to be responsible for her own success, instead of having to rely on others. “I love teaching because I’m able to witness children overcome their personal struggles and ultimately flourish as young adults,” she explains. “I like knowing that I was able to make some sort of impact in that child’s world.” Ms. Ali is an AAU Taekwondo national medalist, a varsity tennis player, and a national merit scholar.
