ATA Brand Ambassador
Once Ethan Fineshriber discovered his passion for martial arts, he never looked back!
After he was diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum at a young age, Ethan struggled to connect with his peers, make friends, and even exercise. However, after trial and error in several sports, Ethan knew martial arts was the one. Not only has it provided him an effective means of communicating with the world, it also has taught him an important lesson about community. Since 2012, Ethan has been a part of the ATA community, and it has forever changed his life. “ATA is so much more than just learning self-defense,” he says. “It is a way of life and something you practice forever.”
Along with being active in the martial arts world, Ethan has expanded his talents in other aspects of his life. He has been featured on shows such as Nickelodeon's “Lip Sync Battle Shorties,” “Wonderama,” Germany's “Super Kids,” and China's “Fantastic Baby.” He’s best known for his work on the popular YouTube channel “Ninja Kidz TV,” as the Green Power Ranger. He even has a popular YouTube channel himself with over a million subscribers.
Ethan is currently a 3rd Degree Black Belt, holds 4 Worlds Championship titles, and unquestionably loves using his favorite weapon, the Bo Staff.
