USA Taekwondo officially announces a partnership with TeachAids, a nonprofit leader in producing award-winning global education innovation, to further understanding of the invisible injury of concussions.

USA Taekwondo joins 22 other US Olympic and Paralympic Committee National Governing Bodies to disseminate the CrashCourse concussion education. 

TeachAids creates breakthrough technology to solve persistent problems in health education around the world. Their products are designed with input from a team of world-class academics, researchers, doctors, and athletes associated with leading organizations and institutions such as Stanford University, Harvard University and beyond.

TeachAids has developed “CrashCourse,” a suite of interactive products focused on the prevention and treatment of concussions and related mental health issues. This education has been designed to teach athletes, parents, and coaches about concussions. CrashCourse products include scientific knowledge to help dispel myths and misconceptions about the concussion recovery process. They also serve as resources for athletic trainers, rehab specialists and physicians. 

“We at Taekwondo take the health and safety of our athletes as our first priority. As an athlete or a coach in a high contact sport, it is critical all are trained to recognize a concussion and understand the importance of dealing with such immediately. The CrashCourse curriculum provides a great resource for further enabling us to provide state of the art concussion training.”

— May Spence, Senior Director of High Performance of USA Taekwondo

“We are thrilled to be joining with the exceptional leadership at USA Taekwondo to provide CrashCourse concussion education to their athletes and coaches. Concussions are a challenge facing so much of the sports world. Together, we are committed to making sport safer through evidence-based education.” 

— Dr. Piya Sorcar, Founder and CEO of TeachAids

“CrashCourse provides an attractive and compelling way to improve the understanding of concussions. The more our athletes and coaches know about these injuries, the better off our sport will be. This is an important partnership!”

— Paul Green, USATKD Coaching Director
