List of ATA Taekwondo Forms
This section examines ATA Taekwondo forms such as Songahm 1 (white belt form). Forms are used by the ATA to practice certain moves (i.e. kicking techniques, self-defense techniques and various strikes) as well as for improving a student's physical conditioning, muscle memory, focus/concentration, balance, etc.
According to the American Taekwondo Association, "Songahm forms have been arranged as a system to gradually increase the student's skill, develop technical balance equally on the left and right side of the body, train muscles, and to develop students from the beginner level through the rank of Grand Master. This is why each Songahm form does not repeat most techniques more than twice and also why every technique which is done with a right arm/leg is also repeated with the left arm/leg."
ATA Taekwondo forms are copyrighted protected techniques. Therefore, we can not offer form instructions to you. Wiki members - Please do not post videos of ATA patterns/forms.
For other Taekwondo forms (i.e. WTF and ITF Taekwondo), please visit the main Forms & Katas section.
