Michael Donohue, Owner

I started my training at the age of 13 under the direct tutelage of Grandmaster Hyun Ok Shin, at what was known as the "Home School" in Floral Park, New York.

I continue today under his guidance in the United Chung Do Kwan Tae Kwon Do Association. I am very proud of our current location in Hicksville, New York where we have been making a difference in our students lives for over 23years.

I personally hold a 7th Dan Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do and a 2nd Dan Black Belt in the Korean Sword Art Haidong Gumdo. I have trained in the arts of Hapkido, BJJ and the Israeli Military Street defense Krav Maga.

I have been nationally ranked in NASKA (North American Sport Karate Association) and have competed over the years, in such tournaments as the Empire State Nationals, Ocean State Karate Nationals, Battle Of Atlanta and TKD World Championship in Madison Square Garden to name a few.

Along with my Black Belt, all of our instructors and I are certified teachers through the prestigious Black Belt Schools International under Grandmaster Greg Silva who’s sole purpose is to elevate the way that Martial Arts is being taught.

I have been awarded "Citizen of the Year" from Nassau County Legislator Rosemarie Walker and also head here in Hicksville, the national program, Thanksgiving Basket Brigade, where we deliver Thanksgiving dinners to the needy. I am the official presenter the Steal Proof Masters Child Abduction program and Bully Buster programs here on Long Island.

I also hold the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest honor in the Boy Scouts Of America and still today as an adult leader.

The Martial Arts is not a sport to me, it is a way of life. The decision to participate in the Martial Arts is a life altering one. It will change you physically and mentally. Through my training I have learned to overcome challenges and experience victories, giving me the confidence and indomitable spirit to strive to be my BEST!

I am energized by the students who train each day and inspired by our entire Martial Arts America TEAM. All the instructors and I truly love what we do. I am honored to have the opportunity to follow my passion by passing on the knowledge, traditions and positive attitude of the Martial Arts to Children, Teens and Adults of all ages and physical abilities.

See you on the mat!
