TMA ENTERS NEW ERA


Taekwon Moodo Association was established in 2002 by Grandmaster Ron Hickey for the purpose of regulating rank and curriculum for his students. Grandmaster Hickey along with Master Kurt Ballman and Mr. Bill Lemon, teaches at College Hill Recreation Center in Cincinnati, Ohio where the initial founding school “College Hill Taekwondo Institute” is housed.

Grandmaster Hickey an 8th Dan in Taekwondo has been a student of Grandmaster Kyongwon Ahn of Atlanta, Georgia since 1973 and most all of the TMA Masters and instructors have studied  Taekwondo under Grandmaster Ahn  for 20-42 years respectivly.
