WHAT PARENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT OUR BIRTHDAY PARTIES:
We decided to have a Karate Party for our son’s 4th Birthday party. We were looking for something that would be different than all the other birthday parties. Our son recently started at Karate Atlanta – Suwanee this summer and has enjoyed going to Tiny Tigers classes each week.
From the moment that the kids walked in the door they were all very excited, not knowing what to expect. As the Birthday Boy, Charlie got to be a Black Belt for the day and wear one of Mr. Lower’s Black Belts. He was also the assistant instructor for the class. Mr. Lower and his staff kept the kids entertained in the party with relays, running, jumping, kicking and punching. They were all having such a great time. After all the activities the kids lined up to hit a Piñata with the stick. After several attempts by the children and not successfully breaking it opened, we convinced Mr. Lower that he needed to kick the piñata open for the kids. One good kick and candy was everywhere. I think all the kids and parents were in AWE of the power. When it was time for cake, Mr. Lower assisted Charlie with cutting the cake with his Samuria Sword. What a way to cut your birthday cake. He and his staff made sure that all the kids were around to enjoy the cutting of the cake and assisted Charlie with opening his presents. As parents we were more than pleased with our selection to have Charlie’s birthday party at Karate Atlanta – Suwanee. They took care of all the details for us and making sure that each child was engaged in the party. Charlie and his friends are still talking about his Karate Birthday Party. The parents are too! We highly recommend Karate Atlanta – Suwanee and Mr. Lower and his staff for your child’s next birthday party. Our son was able to show what he has learned from his Tiny Tigers class and the parents of the children were amazed at the manners and discipline that he displayed! We have recently moved out of the Atlanta area and attending another ATA center. We have realized how AWESOME Karate Atlanta -Suwanee is. Mr. Lower and his staff have a gift for teaching children.

Counting both the U.S. and worldwide, our organizations have over 1500 independently owned and operated schools and have registered over one million students since the ATA’s inception in 1969.
Philosophy Of Belts
Each belt in the Martial Arts is full of meaning and philosophy. As the belt colors progress from white to black, it symbolizes the knowledge and power the student has obtained and experienced.
The White belt is the beginning – showing a lack of knowledge. The Black Belt is the highest level – showing a perfection over the beginning level. However, as other arts feel that Black belt is the end, we do not. For the ATA, it is the beginning. Black belt is the time in a Martial Artists life where he/she is able to truly begin to enjoy the beauty of the art and the amazement of their ability.
To go from rank to rank, there are different time intervals and requirements. Please know, your black belt is waiting for you!
“Pure and without the knowledge of Songahm Taekwondo. As with the Pine Tree, the seed must now be planted and nourished to develop strong roots.”
The student has no knowledge of Songahm Taekwondo and begins with a clean (pure) slate.
Purity is often signified by the color white.
“The sun is beginning to rise. As with the morning’s dawn, only the beauty of the sunrise is seen rather
than the immense power.”
The beginner student sees the beauty of the art of Taekwondo but has not yet experienced the power of the technique.
Orange is found among the many colors of the sunrise.
“The seed is beginning to see the sunlight.”
The student begins to understand the basics of Taekwondo.
The sun appears to be yellow.
Camouflage (Camo) Belt
“The sapling is hidden amongst the taller pines and must now fight its way upward.”
The student begins to realize his/her place in the world’s largest martial art. The student must now begin to spar in order to promote in rank.
Camouflage (greens) is used to hide among the trees in the forest.
“The pine tree is beginning to develop and grow in strength.”
The student’s technique is developing power. The components of the basic techniques are beginning to work in unison.
As the pine tree develops, it sprouts green pine needles.
“Coming to the mountain. The tree is in the mid-growth and now the path becomes steep.”
The student has crossed over into a higher level of Songahm Taekwondo. The techniques, poom-sae (forms), and level of gyeo-roo-gi (sparring) becomes more difficult, creating a “mountain” that must be overcome.
Mountains are often depicted as being purple.
“The tree reaches for the sky toward new heights.”
Having passed the mid-way point, the student focuses his/her energy upward toward black belt.
The sky appears as blue.
“The tree is firmly rooted in the earth.”
At this point the student has mastered the basics and developed deep roots in Taekwondo.
Brown is known as an earthy color, such as dirt.
“The sun is setting. The first phase of growth has been accomplished.”
The first day (the period of time from white belt to red belt) of growth is coming to an end. The physical skill has been developed but lacks control; therefore, physical and mental discipline must now be achieved.
Variations of red are found among the many colors of the sunset.
“The dawn of a new day. The sun breaks through the darkness.”
The previous day has ended, giving way to a new dawn. The student must begin a new phase of training; that of being a black belt.
The red is the sun (in a sunrise) as it breaks through the black of night.
“The tree has reached maturity and has overcome the darkness… it must now ‘plant seeds for the future.’”
The color black is created when all the colors of the light spectrum have been absorbed into an object. That object has “taken control” of the colors and retained them. If one color was to “escape”, the object would no longer be black but would appear as that color. The student has mastered the nine geup (grades) of Taekwondo. He/she has “absorbed” all the knowledge of the color ranks and overcome or “mastered” that level or training.
The colors of the spectrum are bound together and are not reflected off an object, resulting in the absence of color which we call black.
