American Martial Arts Sports & Education Association

AMASEA President Charles F. Hildebrand and the MSK Summer Expo XXVI Group

The American Martial Arts Sports and Education Association (AMASEA) was founded in 1981, by Great Grandmaster Lee H. Park. It was founded to eventually represent many schools nationwide, encouraging the educational development of the martial arts, sports and other teams on a national level.

The AMASEA helps to continually educate our instructors and students in the Korean martial arts of Taekwondo, Hapkido and Judo by organizing conventions, workshops, competitions, seminars, and the finest in black belt training.

An AMASEA recognized school, club or campus signifies top quality in the instruction and care of their student's success and progress.  At an AMASEA school, quality education is #1.  To earn an officially certified AMASEA Belt Rank Certificate is quite an accomplishment!

AMASEA founder Lee H. Park was the first President of the AMASEA. Since 1988, Grandmaster Charles F. Hildebrand, St. Louis, Missouri, has been the President of the AMASEA.
