We remember when we were children, feeling uncertainty about beginning martial arts. We wondered if we had what it took to succeed and we weren't the most athletic or confident children - quite the opposite. Little did we know that beginning our martial arts journey would be one of the most profound experiences of our lives!
When we opened our school in 2014, we made a commitment to serving and empowering the community of Jonesboro by teaching children and adults the confidence, leadership, and fitness skills that can only be achieved through martial arts.

The country’s largest martial arts organization.
130,000 active members and over 1 million students trained since 1969.
Each instructor has passed an intensive certification process based on 40 years of tradition, research and development.
The family-owned licensed school is operated by Senior Master Eduardo Gonzalez (6th degree black belt), his wife Master Carolina Gonzalez (6th degree black belt), son Mr. Santiago Gonzalez (certified instructor, 4th degree black belt), and daughter Ms. Angeles Gonzalez (assistant instructor, 3rd degree black belt). The school has had overwhelming growth thanks to the support of the Jonesboro community and the endorsements from official Taekwondo organizations.
“Each month we gain new students and train new leaders who are excited about making martial arts a way of life.” - Master Eduardo Gonzalez.
Songahm Taekwondo is the style of martial arts practiced by ATA Martial Arts students.
The journey from White Belt to Black Belt (10 belts total) is one of incremental learning and skill development that students of any age any fitness level can embark on.
One of the most fun parts of martial arts training is the ability to test your skills by competing in a tournament. Tournaments are not only fun for competitors, but they also become a great social experience for parents as well! There are currently 130,000 ATA Martial Arts members worldwide. ATA Martial Arts students compete in local tournaments against other ATA schools, advancing from District levels, to State levels, to a yearly Spring National competition in Las Vegas, NV. The competition winners gather at the ATA World Expo Tournament in Little Rock, AR in the summer, competing against finalists from all over the planet in one of largest martial arts competitions in the world.
