New Support Kicks in for American Taekwondo Association with New Credit Card from U.S. Bank

MINNEAPOLIS & LITTLE ROCK, Ark.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 14, 2005--Students of American Taekwondo will get a boost with the introduction of the new American Taekwondo Association Visa(R) credit card from U.S. Bank. The card generates support for the association each time a new card is activated and repeatedly thereafter each time the card is used.

"Our mission is to provide students with the highest quality martial arts instruction available in a safe and positive learning environment that people of all ages can enjoy," said Jim Wolff, chief executive officer of the American Taekwondo Association. "The support generated through this card will help us provide an even greater learning environment for all who participate."

The American Taekwondo Association credit card depicts the colors of the ATA and a taekwondo silhouette. The card features no annual fee, a low introductory rate (APR) and a choice of rewards including cash back or points redeemable for merchandise, travel, gift certificates or virtually any reward with the Choose Your Own Reward option.

"We are thrilled to issue the only credit card that supports the sport of taekwondo, and we look forward to a long relationship with this highly respected organization," said Tanya Turner, senior vice president of affinity products at U.S. Bank.
