ATA Taekwondo

Taekwondo is a non-agressive and ethical system of self-defense. Taekwondo developed over 1,000 years ago and has since spread internationally to become one of the world’s most successful and popular martial arts. Its practitioners enjoy physical and mental discipline, as well as excellent fitness and the ability to defend themselves if necessary. Taekwondo is not only a combat sport, but is also a way of life for enthusiasts around the globe. Counting both the U.S. and worldwide, the American Taekwondo Association has over 1,500 independently owned and operated licensed schools and clubs, and have registered over one million students since the ATA’s inception in 1969.
