ATA stands for ( American Taekwondo Association ). It was established by a Korean by the name of Eternal Grand Master Haeng Ung Lee. This is taken from the website,
“Eternal Grand Master Haeng Ung Lee’s martial arts training began in 1953 and he received his black belt in 1954. In 1962, he moved from South Korea to the United States and opened a Taekwondo school in Nebraska.

-ATA Martial Arts website
As a franchise its one of the most successful franchises in the world, it has a very successful business practices, but like any successful franchise it does come with flaws in quality and consistency. Because it does have so many people under its organization it can be a tough sell to get everyone at their best. But with its culture strong it can have many great black belts in its organization. There are many ATA Martial Arts and Karate for Kids in Las Vegas. ATA can be a strong martial arts program and over the years it has been. But when joining big organizations it can come with challenges.

Shaolin Kenpo Karate in Las Vegas
USSD is also another franchise that focuses on a style called Shaolin Kenpo Karate. Its based on a mix of Japanese Karate and Kung Fu. Here is something taken from the website.
” Professor Charles Mattera
Charles Mattera, founder of USSD, was first introduced to the martial arts in his Freshman year of high school when he began boxing lessons at Duffy’s Gym in the North End of Boston. It was in his junior year that he began training in Kenpo, USSD’s traditional martial arts system. In 1971, he opened his first Martial Arts studio in Melrose, Mass under the name United Studios of Self Defense. Unlike many studios of the time, Charles introduced private training to his martial arts program, which allowed the style to be formatted to fit individual needs and abilities.
In his over 50 years of training, Charles has pioneered professional martial arts instruction, spreading the USSD self-defense system across the United States and beyond.”

Taekwondo Belt Ranking
because there are so many taekwondo schools around the world there are so many belt ranks it hard to gauge what the exact belt ranking for taekwondo could be.

These are several types of Organization and the biggest organization recognized is the WTF ( World Taekwondo Federation). The belt ranks change so much so its hard to gauge what is the proper ranking, but they do registeer thier black belts with the Kukikwon in Korea from what I know.
