Our Commitment to the Advancement of Taekwondo


The Advancement of American Taekwondo was founded by a group of Taekwondo school owners and operators who were not only concerned about the advancement of Taekwondo, but willing to work towards making a difference. Since conception in the fall of 1994, The Advancement of American Taekwondo has sponsored and participated in many local as well as regional events.

The A.A.T. does not serve as a substitute to any other organization, federation, or affiliation.  However, by increasing awareness, serving the community, and serving as host to only friendly and fair competition the A.A.T.  will represent itself and all schools who share our common goal as a positive and vital part of any community.


 The A.A.T. served as host to nearly 500 participants at its annual invitational tournaments, both in 1994, 1995 & 1996. The first AAT International Championships, in January 1996 in the Palm Beaches, had participants from 12 countries, which included Lithuania, Japan, Iran and Finland.

 The second annual A.A.T. Junior Training Camp was held in Palm Beach Gardens, in February 1996. The camp instructors included several national and international champions.

Members of the A.A.T. can be seen at many local and regional events such as the Palm Beach County's Tourism Development Project "Sun Fest" that attracts more than 300,000 spectators annually, and at the Palm Beach County Sports Commission’s numerous events including the annual Unified Youth Sports Festival for all school age youngsters.

During the 1996 Florida Sunshine State Games, in Tampa, the A.A.T. was proudly represented by nearly 250 participants.  This tournament is sanctioned by the Advancement of American Taekwondo.
