Affiliates, Advocates, and Sponsors



In order to help you identify affiliates, advocates, and sponsors of ATA International, we have designed and implemented logos for their use. As a student or parent of a student, it is important that you are able to determine the best correspondence.

Any company that does business without these logos are not associated with ATA International, approved, or in any way official business. Only after a vendor or program has been properly vetted by ATA International and proven beneficial for our licensees, will they be allowed to display the appropriate approved products and programs for you or your child.

If you have any questions and any program, please feel free to contact us.


Corporate Advocates

Autism Speaks

autism_speaks-1.jpgAutism Speaks has grown into the world's leading autism science and advocacy organization, dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism; increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders; and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families.

In 2011, ATA partnered with Autism Speaks to promote awareness of the life-changing benefits that children and families may experience through martial arts training, to educate instructors about autism and autism spectrum disorders, and to raise funds supporting the crucial missions of Autism Speaks.

Songahm Taekwondo, the curriculum taught at licensed locations, systematically promotes discipline, honor, self-control, respect, courtesy, perseverance and loyalty, learned behaviors that extend far beyond the mats. Songahm Taekwondo is taught at the ability level of each student and focuses on personal development of the mind and body. The pace of progress depends on the individual.

Three fundamentals of Songahm Taekwondo are increasing attention, self-control, and self-discipline. In a great number of autistic individuals, these core attributes have shown to be effective in achieving personal advancements while overcoming developmental obstacles. Because physical education can be challenging to autistic children, exercise opportunities are often limited. Martial arts, however, can provide a way for individuals with autism to participate in specifically designed workouts and classes while helping to strengthen their physical condition and social activities.
