Interested in joining the world’s largest centralized martial arts organization and learning Taekwondo?

We offer what we believe is the best martial art in the world. Taekwondo is an exciting and powerful martial art known for its dynamic kicking and hand techniques. Although these martial art techniques are centuries old, our programs are always evolving to keep pace with the rapidly changing world.

We realize that each student possesses different physical abilities. Size and strength vary with each individual. Once you have acquired a strong foundation in the basics, our program will enhance your physical capabilities and maximize your self-defense skills. You will understand exactly what it takes, mentally and physically, to defend yourself or your loved ones should the need ever arise.

“…positive mental attitude” and “high goal setting.”

At the American Taekwondo Association (ATA) of Valdosta, we are not interested in just teaching self-defense, we are interested in the complete personal development of each student. Individual attention is a feature of each and every class, allowing all students to progress quickly and confidently toward their personal goals. Our instructors take their responsibility seriously as role models for younger students, teaching them the importance of strong character, leadership and good values.

The teaching curriculum at the ATA of Valdosta is based on two concepts: “positive mental attitude” and “high goal setting.” We feel so positive about this program that we promise to give you and your family the most professional, well supervised and the highest quality classes available in any sport or art.

While certainly helping to improve fitness and the capacity for self-defense, our Songahm Taekwondo is not just a physical activity. Eternal Grand Master H.U. Lee called Taekwondo “the martial art that trains people physically and mentally.” In addition to physical fitness, our Taekwondo classes promote discipline, honor, self-control, respect, courtesy, perseverance and loyalty.

So by joining our school and the American Taekwondo Association, you are not only improving your fitness and learning to defend yourself, you are embarking on a path to improve many important aspects of your life.

And the truly wonderful thing is, you get to have fun while doing it!

If all of this sounds good to you (and we’re sure it does!), we would love to have you join our ATA family, with convenient locations in Valdosta (main school), Hahira, and Lake Park.
