About Us


In the Beginning:

Action International Martial Arts Association (AIMAA) was founded in 1980 by Grandmaster Hee Il Cho.

Since its inception, the goal of AIMAA has been to serve as a unifying body for all different styles of the martial arts..The same is true today.



The Growing Years:

AIMAA grew quickly in popularity with its "no politics" approach to organizing schools and instructors who had different backgrounds and different visions of how they wanted to run their own schools. AIMAA continues to develop its immense training and knowledge support base, with now over 70 video titles and 11 printed books...AIMAA offers the most comprehensive support program for instruction in the world of martial arts! This is owing to the driving force of AIMAA's President and Founder, Grandmaster Hee Il Cho. It is through his ongoing motivation and complete dedication to the research, practice and development of martial arts that new techniques and new methods are continuously being added into the AIMAA curriculum as they emerge out of the traditional, yet progressive, world of martial arts.
