The concept of belts and rank is probably one that most people associate with Taekwondo and martial arts in general, even if they only have a passing interest in the subject. 

In Songahm Taekwondo, our belts reflect a member's proven level of competence and (just as importantly) the progression of colors reflects an inner journey that never truly ends. Each belt achieved is truly an accomplishment worthy of respect.

 

It is also worth noting that achieving a belt isn't just a matter of "spending...

She-hahp (tournaments) are controlled competitive environments that allow practitioners to display and improve their skills in a safe environment. Although some may think it is all about "who is better", that is only a part of their purpose in Songahm Taekwondo.

A New Year can mean a new start, a new story, a new beginning or it can be a chance to renew your focus on a previous goal.  Here at Royersford ATA, we have decided the best way to encourage our students to renew their commitment to the practice of Taekwondo is to remind them to set Goals.  A Goal is something that you want and are willing to work for.
