  • GM He Il Cho

    For over 45 years Grandmaster Hee Il Cho has been training and devoted his life in complete to the art of Tae Kwon Do. Grandmaster Cho remains humble and simple in his manner, continuing to train and personally teach classes daily at his own school. Grandmaster Cho began his training at the age of ten in Korea. His motivation was inspired by being beat-up as a young boy. Continuing diligently and training daily.

    Grandmaster Cho received his black belt at the age of thirteen. By twenty-one he had achieved Fourth Dan black belt and was selected to train the elite special forces of the Korean National Army. Grandmaster Cho was also recruited to train the army Special Forces of India.

    In 1968 the United States became Grandmaster Cho's new found home. Throughout his younger life Grandmaster Cho actively participated in many competitions and international championships, including martial arts and boxing.

    He quickly gained a reputation as a fierce fighting and forms competitor. In addition Grandmaster Cho has personally written 11 books and produced 67 videos. In 1980 he founded the Action International Martial Arts Association, which today has member support internationally.

    I've heard that he has to constantly replace heavy bags because his kicks break them open.
