Welcome to Lake Havasu Black Belt Academy Aﬃliated with the ATA (Always Take Action) we are a Taekwondo club. In a friendly and fun environment, we teach Songham Taekwondo using various programs such as ATA Tigers, Karate for Kids, Masters Club and Legacy (Leadership). A Korean martial art that builds self-conﬁdence, self-esteem, physical ﬁtness and mental alertness, Taekwondo is practiced by students age three to one hundred three. Although martial arts are individually practiced, we build social bonds among family and friends. Club owner and ATA certiﬁed instructor Karen Fresh is a Fourth Degree Black Belt who has studied and practiced Taekwondo since 1995. Ten of her children, as well as her husband, have attained black belts in ATA Taekwondo. After ﬁrst visiting her family here in 1972, Karen has resided in Lake Havasu City since 1985. Stop in and try a free class at our club. Please feel free to contact us on how Lake Havasu Black Belt Academy can help you and your family achieve worthwhile personal goals
ATA International is the world’s largest organization teaching martial arts to the entire family! There are over 950 independently owned and operated licensed facilities with the highest quality martial arts curriculum available in a fun and positive learning environment that people of all ages can enjoy. Each Instructor graduated from an intensive certiﬁcation process that represents more than forty years of ongoing curriculum research and development.Your Certiﬁed Instructor will be with you every step of the way to help you reach your current individual goals, as well as some new goals you never before thought possible! "Martial Art" encompasses the many styles of physical discipline (ﬁghting) arts developed over the centuries. Songham Taekwondo is more than just another "martial art”. It is the world's LARGEST centrally administered martial art.
Smoothly progressing from one rank to the next, Songham Taekwondo students ﬁnd themselves a few years later doing 360-degree jumping kicks with ease while also focusing on personal development of the mind and body through the valuable ideas and philosophy behind this ancient art.
Self-defense is a fringe beneﬁt gained by dedicating one's self to the values, philosophy and training of Songham Taekwondo.
The active student in a true, traditional Taekwondo class, focuses not just on the physical but also on discipline, honor, self-control, respect, courtesy and perseverance.
The ATA curriculum helps build a strong foundation of Songahm Taekwondo in each person, a foundation from which advancement in both the martial art (mind and body) and in self defense can be built and added on for a lifetime, truly “building tomorrow’s leaders, one black belt at a time.”
