Would you like to change people's lives?
Have you ever dreamt of owning your own licensed school or maybe a club? Why not make it a reality. Realizing that this goal can be a very exciting moment in your life, the ATA family would like to share in that excitement. Creating better instructors and students through the individually licensed facilities has always been the key to the success of the ATA. You can be part of this success as a licensee and help us to continue Eternal Grand Master H. U. Lee’s vision of spreading Songahm taekwondo around the world one black belt at a time.
There are actually two types of ATA licenses you can be granted:
A School licensee is person who has a full-time operation meaning that it is open 11 or more hours per week. It must also be an independent business (not part of another facility).
A Club licensee is person who has a part-time operation that is open less than 10 hours per week. It MUST be part of another facility, such as a fitness club, recreation center or business of that nature.
There are a couple Basic Requirements to receive a license:
You must be an actively training member of the ATA
You must be at least a First Degree Black Belt
Eighteen years old
Minimum Collar: Black Collar Certified Instructor
Potential licensees are required to attend a three-day business class at ATA Headquarters
before any license can be granted.
We ask that you seek the guidance and the knowledge your senior instructor has to offer.
