Alicia Tavani No Limits Martial Arts

Hi, I’m Alicia Tavani.


I remember when I was a child, feeling uncertain 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! Martial Arts has helped me to become the best version of myself throughout all aspects of my life. Through the confidence and self-discipline I've acquired due to training, I've become a multiple-time world champion and have been featured on the NBC hit TV show American Ninja Warrior.  At No Limits Martial Arts, we are here to teach our students that there are No Limits to what you can achieve! 

When I opened my school in 2018, I made a commitment to serving the South Hills Community by teaching children and adults the confidence, leadership, and fitness skills that can only be achieved through martial arts. Join the No Limits Team by helping the South Hills community become stronger one black belt at a time! 

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.

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.
