About Valpo ATA Black Belt Academy

At Valpo ATA Black Belt Academy, we teach Songahm Taekwondo. This discipline focuses on personal development of the mind and body. To say it is just self-defense would be to lose most of the valuable ideas and philosophy behind this ancient art. Self-defense is really the fringe benefit that is gained by dedication one's self to the values, philosophy and training of Songahm Taekwondo.

Description

Valpo ATA Black Belt Academy is owned by Third Degree Black Belt Jan Rubsam. She has studied Taekwondo for 12 years under Fifth Degree Black Belt Glenn Handzlik, Sr., Valpo ATA's Chief Instructor. Jan has competed in World, National and Regional tournaments, earning a State Championship the last 5 years running.

Valpo ATA instills self-confidence by teaching Taekwondo, which translates to the "art of hand and foot," a discipline that trains people mentally and physically.

Valpo ATA offers proven bully prevention and adult self-defense seminars throughout the year. Nearly 500 Valparaiso schoolchildren have benefited from this important training! Call to find out when their next public seminars will be offered, or to inquire about a seminar just for your group.

Jan Rubsam, owner of Valpo ATA Black Belt Academy LLC, has achieved the rank of 4th Degree Black Belt in the American Taekwondo Association. Ms. Rubsam traveled to Orlando, Florida in October to test before a panel of nine masters. The test required proficiency in forms, weapons (bo staff), and free sparring. Ms. Rubsam has been a member of the American Taekwondo Association for 13 years, is a seven-time Indiana state champion in sparring, and is a certified instructor.

In addition to self-defense, Taekwondo teaches the following life skills:

Programs We Offer:

Bully Prevention - Our Fifth Degree Black Belt Glenn Handzlik is certified in bully prevention instruction. In addition to the instruction provided at the dojo, Glenn and Valpo ATA have instructed larger groups including entire classrooms and schools. This program serves to instill self-confidence and self-esteem in children, and to teach them the tools they need to not only prevent bullying, but become leaders in their class.

Leadership Program - The Leadership Program is our elite training program. It is designed for students not only to earn their black belt, but to become a leader in the community, at home, and at school or work. All the benefits of the Black Belt Club program are available to Leadership Program students. Additionally, students receive classes that focus on advanced board breaking, self-defense, weapons training, extreme martial arts, and tournament competition. In these classes we focus on skills that students need to become effective leaders.

Black Belt Club - The Black Belt Club program is a program developed for students of any rank. Black Belt Club members are those individuals who have set their goal at "Black Belt." Students must know exactly what their goal is if they are to move toward it with desire and conviction. All Black Belt Club members are welcome to participate in special Black Belt Club training classes held each weekend at our academy. These exciting workouts offer training in weapons and much more. These special classes will not only make you a better martial artist, but will also prepare you for the courses taught at the black belt level.

CIT - This program is for teen/adult students ages 13 and above to prepare them for instructor certification. Trainee instructors are people who enjoy teaching others or who are interested in a career in the martial arts. The ATA Trainee Instructor Program was devised in order to allow adult students to become a Certified Instructor. The additional responsibilities and challenges of the program increase each student’s self esteem and teaching ability.

Adult Self Defense - Valpo ATA offers SHARP (sexual harassment and rape prevention) programs for businesses and workplaces. We have been proud to provide instruction for Valparaiso University and the Social Security Office. Contact us today to schedule a SHARP for your business or workplace.
