About Choong Moo
The Oriental Martial Arts College, Chong Moo Branch, offers classes in taekwondo, a korean martial art. We provide a traditional martial arts program, with students gaining knowledge in self-defense fighting techniques, meditation, and, for more advanced students, martial arts healing techniques. Classes are geared to all ages and abilities. The program is led and primarily taught by a master level instructor. Rank promotion tests, leading to black belt and level and beyond, are provided on a regular basis.
The martial arts is neither a sport nor a hobby. It is a way of life. Our philosophy at the OMAC is to use the Martial Arts as a means of enabling an individual to achieve his or her full potential mentally, physically, spiritually, and emotionally. In addition to learning basic skills of fighting and self-defense, students of our Moogongryu system, our students will develop and strength their mind, body, spirit, and emotions.
The OMAC system has been developed from nearly 40 years of teaching experience of our founder, Grandmaster Joon P. Choi, and others in the OMAC. Our schools are nationally and internationally known with schools in the United States, Canada, South America, Asia, and Europe. OMAC originated from the famous school of Song Moo Kwan in South Korea,one of the oldest and most prestigious martial arts schools in the world. Song Moo Kwan is led by Supreme Grand Master Byung Jik Ro, the teacher of Grandmaster Joon P. Choi.
In the Cleveland area, OMAC classes are held in the East Gymnasium of the Byron Middle School in Shaker Heights, on Shaker Boulevard just east of Warrensville Center Road.
The Choong Moo program is led and primarily taught by Master James S. Cahn, 6th degree black belt,

Joon P. Choi, founder and head of the OMAC system, oversees regularly scheduled
rank promotion tests leading to black belt and beyond. Classes are held in the east
