ATA Brand Ambassador
“I want to be like her one day!” Those were Channah Zeitung’s exact words after witnessing Rayna Valandingham perform martial arts. And by 2011, Channah was taking martial arts classes to make it happen.
Throughout her training, Channah has had several role models influence her passion. A couple being Chief Master Ken Church and Master Patricia Church, as well as Mr. Jose Aguilar who first introduced her to the bo staff. It’s safe to say that Channah and taekwondo were a perfect match as she currently holds 13 World Championship titles and 2 Demo Team titles.
Her martial arts career has led her many directions in the entertainment industry as well. She was on the “Katie Couric Show” in 2013 and since has made appearances on Nickelodeon’s “Game Shakers,” “Wonderama,” “Little Big Shots” (both US and Australia), and the Olympic Channel series “Her Game.” Channah was also named one of the Top 25 “People are Awesome” for 2017 on YouTube, and in 2019 she was featured in the New York Times! She currently has a recurring role on Nickelodeon’s “Danger Force” as Cavekid and is set to star in a major motion picture in 2023.
Channah is a 3rd Degree Black Belt, bo staff extraordinaire, and always sticks to her motto, “Even though you’re small, it doesn’t mean you can’t achieve BIG THINGS!”
