American Taekwondo Association Students Nationwide Are Joining An Exclusive Live Online Event With The Film’s Star And ATA’s Own Noah Ringer.
The Last Airbender actor Noah Ringer, who stars as Aang, the lone Avatar, will team up with the American Taekwondo Association (ATA) and Paramount Home Entertainment to participate in a live streaming video event. From Los Angeles, joined by distinguished event moderators Taekwon Lee and Mike Chat along with local ATA students, Noah will connect with ATA schools nationwide to talk about his experience on the film as well as demo some of his favorite Taekwondo moves. Two years after he began studying Taekwondo at the age of 10, Noah Ringer earned his 1st degree black belt, and utilized his martial arts experience to land the lead role in the live-action family adventure The Last Airbender, now on DVD. Ringer, now 13, is a 2nd degree black belt instructor and holds the 2009–2010 title of Texas State Champion in his age group in five different categories.
Fans can log-on to http://www.ustream.tv/lastairbender to watch the event. Special cameras and monitors set up with Ustream will enable select ATA schools in major cities to link up with Noah directly to ask questions about his martial arts background and his action-packed role in The Last Airbender from Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies. Additionally, ATA schools across the country will be setting up themed “watch parties” for the online event to mark the film’s home entertainment debut.
