When a student enters a Songahm Taekwondo classroom, the focus of his or her training is not only on physical strength and growth, but also on important skills that will help lead to personal successes in life. These Life Skills will benefit our students inside the ATA classroom and beyond. After all, a healthy individual is characterized by a strong body and a strong mind so that you can attack any curve ball life throws your way.
Each life skill taught through ATA curriculum is based on The Songahm Spirit of Taekwondo oath, a promise each student makes at the beginning and end of each ATA event to prepare them for what lies ahead.
At the beginning of each event the oath is as follows:
"Sir/Ma'am, I shall practice in the spirit of Taekwondo; with courtesy for fellow students, loyalty for my instructor and respect for my juniors and seniors, sir/ma'am"
At the end of the event, the promise is targeted more for behavior outside of the do-jahng:
"Sir/Ma'am, I shall live with perseverance in the spirit of Taekwondo; having honor for others, integrity for myself and self control in my actions, sir/ma'am"
