OMAC Choong Moo Instructors
The long tradition of the Oriental Martial Arts College in developing martial artists
is due in large part to the quality of the teaching from OMAC martial artists.
Among the instructors for the OMAC Chong Moo Branch are the following:
Grandmaster Choi established the Oriental
Martial Arts College in 1972. He is a two-time Korean National
Champion and a 9th degree black belt. He also was a coach of the U.S.
Team in taekwondo for the 1988 Olympics and has coached other national
teams in international competition. He developed the Moogong Ryu
system of taekwondo used by all OMAC students. Although Grandmaster
Choi is based at the main OMAC school in the Columbus area, he
regularly comes to Cleveland to work with students at the Choong Moo
branch. Learn more about Master Choi
