ATA International Announces 2022 Masters' Ceremony Event


LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS (February 18, 2022) – ATA International is pleased to announce that the 2022 Masters' Ceremony will take place the evening of Saturday, November 5, 2022 in Little Rock, Arkansas.


The Masters Ceremony has been a tradition for over 30 years in Little Rock and because our national and world tournament events are in other locations in 2022, we’ve made the decision to have the ceremony as a stand-alone event to keep up with this tradition.


ATA International welcomes the 2022 Masters’ Class to Little Rock for this special event to honor their journey as a martial artist. Many achieve the rank of Black Belt, and few pursue the esteemed title of Master Instructor. Therefore, we invite all of our ATA family to witness the 2022 Masters’ Class as they earn their respective titles of Master Instructor, Senior Master Instructor, and Chief Master Instructor.


The Little Rock Marriott will serve as our host hotel for this event and room blocks are available on Friday, November 4th and Saturday, November 5th. We will also be live streaming the ceremony on the ATA Martial Arts Facebook page.


Prior to the ceremony we will be reintroducing the ATA Leadership Camp: The Path to Mastership and Beyond. This camp will be held on Wednesday, November 2nd through Saturday, November 5th at the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute on Petit Jean Mountain in Morrilton, Arkansas. This camp is open to ATA 4th degrees and above. More details and registration will be announced in the coming weeks.
