Oriental Martial Arts College

Founded in 1971, the Oriental Martial Arts College has taught martial art to over 25,000 students. OMAC teaches an innovative and holistic life skills system based on centuries old traditional Korean martial arts - Taekwondo.

Moogong Ryu means "the school of formlessness".

They incorporate the best ideas from all martial arts, yet do not attempt to homogenize them.

We value having each style share the best ideas while keeping its own unique character.

Moogong Ryu includes Taekwondo, Gumdo, and Hapkido.

OMAC welcomes student of all ages, men and women.

Those with health challenges have found OMAC a place to regain and rebuild their overall physical, mental, emotion, and spiritual wellbeing.

Students practice to gain mental & physical fitness, self-defense skills, skills in performing arts and Olympic sports, and an understanding of philosophy and personal growth.

OMAC has a reputation for being more than a place to get a good workout and learn an effective martial art.

New students often mention the mutually supportive atmosphere we work to foster.
