You might naturally associate martial arts with Hollywood stunts and kicks and punches, but the self-defense aspect of martial arts is just part of it. Children that learn martial arts develop the confidence to know that if they are ever bullied, they have the skills they need to defend themselves. However, the real skill we teach is diffusing situations with words before they ever escalate to a physical level.

We teach children to focus. In this age of distractions and sensory overload, this is a skill that will provide immediate results in their academic work. 

Martial arts help teach self-discipline and socialization skills. In fact, many parents whose children have attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) report great success with these programs because self-control and concentration are commonly underdeveloped skills in ADHD kids.

And did we mention ... martial arts are FUN!

Consider these benefits of martial arts when enrolling your child:

• Fosters self-discipline

• Boosts socialization skills

• Encourages physical activity

• Teaches kids to set and achieve goals

• Increases self-esteem

• Instills a sense of respect

• Encourages non-violent conflict resolution

• Improves listening skills

• Develops teamwork skills

• Improvement in other areas of life

What does "improvement in other areas of life" mean? It can mean getting better grades in school, knowing how to use anti-bullying programs to prevent violence amongst peers, or simply the appreciation that comes from learning and mastering a difficult skill through practice.

Perhaps most importantly, students learn that physical activity is a healthy way to have fun. With health problems such as diabetes and obesity affecting more and more young people, parents should take steps to help their children avoid these issues. Children's martial arts gives kids a fun way to exercise, learn essential life lessons and develop a sense of self-reliance.

At OC ATA Martial Arts, we Teach the Same Values You Teach at Home.

Our martial arts classes foster respect in all senses of the word. Your children will learn not only to respect others, but to respect themselves as well. Self-confidence is key in carrying respect into the home, school, and other social situations.

Competition & Tournaments

Competition is not just about beating an opponent; it is about allowing participants to display and improve their skills in a safe environment. With ATA, tournaments are one of the most dynamic and fun aspects of Songahm Taekwondo.


For over 40 years, ATA has offered a fun and controlled tournament environment. ATA hosted tournaments are exclusive to ATA members and organized for maximum participation. These tournaments provide participants the chance to compete against competitors of their own age and rank to ensure fair and equal competition. Most importantly, competing in a tournament is about much more than just a trophy. It provides students an opportunity to make new friends, learn to overcome nerves, and enhance their skills and technique. Whether or not they win, participating in organized competition is a key component to learning and growing in martial arts.


ATA hosts national tournaments in the Fall and Spring, and an international competition in the summer. In addition to these annual tournaments, there will be other tournament opportunities available through OC ATA Martial Arts and other region and districts schools. We provide regular competition training class opportunities for any students!
