ATA Leadership NOW

Get Inspired


Through my Taekwondo training I've learned how to defend myself, but as a Leadership student, I also received advanced lessons with traditional weapons. I never imagined that using something as simple as a Bo Staff could be so empowering! Although I hope I never have to defend myself against an attacker, I now have the confidence and ability to do so.

Leadership Profiles

Lisa Tuzon

Teaching Taekwondo to Kids with Special Needs, Obtaining Instructor Certification and Opening Her Own ATA School

Early in her training her Instructor noticed great teaching potential within Ms. Lisa Tuzon. In addition to the prodigious martial arts skills she has developed, Ms. Tuzon is gifted with a firm but gentle way that seems to bring out the best in those she chooses to help - especially kids with special needs. She expects and gets a lot from them. She started the special abilities program for children at Master Schreiber's ATA Martial Arts, which has lead to a great many personal victories. Now a Certified Instructor and 3rd degree Black Belt, Ms. Tuzon also owns Tuzon's ATA Martial Arts in Livermore, California, running a fantastic operation and changing lives one Black Belt at a time! She's also a Regional Chief of Tournaments, an important position of authority within the ATA. Were it not for Team PRIDE, the world might never have known the great benefits of her patient, professional guidance.
