PRESS RELEASE



2020 District Championships, 2020 World Championships, &

all ATA Sanctioned Tournaments Canceled for 2020

 


LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS (July 17, 2020) – ATA International announced today that the 2020 District Championships, the 2020 World Championships, and all ATA sanctioned tournaments have been canceled for the remainder of the year.

The decision for this cancellation centered on three factors:
1) The health & safety of our ATA licensees, members, and community.
2) The financial hardship presently endured by many of our licensees and members.
3) The general uncertainty surrounding the pandemic, ability to travel, and anticipated guidance by respective health and governmental agencies.

ATA International Board of Directors and the Masters Council are currently discussing and working on a plan for the tournament season to resume in January 2021. We are looking into how to address both Tournament of Champions and the Masters’ Ceremony; further correspondence will be provided in the coming weeks.

While ATA International remains hopeful to be able to commence by 2021, it is still too early to reach any decisions or offer guidance at this time. In providing further guidance to the ATA community, ATA International will continue to provide updates as decisions are made to eliminate any confusion during this time of constant change.

Information will be communicated via www.ataonline.com/newsroom and ATA Martial Arts Facebook page as it becomes available.
