The APTSDF is a nonprofit charity providing martial arts scholarships through martial arts schools to at-risk youths, people with disabilities, the elderly and others. Your local martial arts school may be able to offer you a martial arts scholarship at their school with our help.
Over 50 psychological and medical studies done over the past 35 years show that martial arts training can improve mental, physical and spiritual health. We, along with our martial arts studio partners, provide scholarships for individuals to take martial arts lessons thus building their mental, physical or spiritual strength to live a healthier, more value-oriented life. For at-risk children, special needs candidates and the elderly this training can very substantially improve their quality of life.
APTSDF is an approved 501c3 organization providing education, awareness, and research funding, as well as scholarships related to the martial arts study of Tang Soo Do. Services are designed specifically for at-risk youth, teens, individuals with special needs, and the elderly.
The Board members of the organization believe that cooperation and positive communication is essential for the success of the programs. We will dedicate our efforts to offering an array of services and opportunities to the targeted group. We will work to improve the individuals' physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual well being. As a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, our highest priority will be to serve the individuals, focusing on providing the best of services available.
