ATA International Announces the Opening of Company Owned Schools in Arkansas
LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS (December 22, 2020) – ATA International, the world’s largest organization dedicated to teaching martial arts to the entire family and with licensed locations across the globe, announced today the opening of company-owned schools in the state of Arkansas.
The year 2020 has been a tumultuous time for all of us around the globe. ATA International is always trying to find new, innovative programs and ways to assist, as we constantly monitor and adjust while continuously growing Songahm Taekwondo and support its licensees and members.
As we move into 2021 and continue to improve communications with licensees, we are dedicated to the strength of Songahm Taekwondo and its members. To show our commitment, we will be opening company-owned schools but only in the state of Arkansas. During this time as we all try to rebuild and endure what 2020 has brought us, the ATA is investing back into the people and the mission. The schools in Arkansas will serve three long term goals:
- Provide opportunities to those who want to continue to teach and sell Taekwondo.
- Create future leaders and staff for other licensees.
- Deliver research and development for all aspects of Songahm Taekwondo.
As we continue to strive for communication excellence, it is important to share how we are investing in the future of ATA before we start the process. In the coming weeks, recruiting advertisements for Chief Instructors/Managers and Program Directors will be posted as part of the expansion plan. The two immediate locations are in Northwest Arkansas (Bentonville) and Little Rock (Riverfront) areas.
This is a very exciting endeavor for the future of the organization. Everyone is looking for staff. With time, this project will yield future staff for you, as well. As we continue to run schools, we will build a pool of Legacy members and create instructors. The ATA is dedicated to being committed to the betterment of the organization and reinvesting in the future.
