The Action International Martial Arts Association (AIMAA) was founded by Grandmaster Cho in 1980. Its mission was (and still is) to provide an organization with the leadership, structure and resources to help unite martial artists of all styles, to help support the start-up and maturation of individual schools, and to help facilitate physical, mental and spiritual growth through training. This concept, like with Grandmaster Cho's own training system, was unique for its time; a time when styles--even schools within the same styles--were more concerned about proving whose system was superior. AIMAA is committed to actions that unify, promote harmony and bring people together; while encouraging the exchange of knowledge.
AIMAA recognizes the unique history, personalities, culture and techniques of all martial art styles. It recognizes that each has its own relevance and special formula for self-defense. It also recognizes that the martial arts in philosophy, all share similar principles. It is these principles and our passion for the arts that guide us towards connection.
Cho's Academy is proud to be an AIMAA affiliated school, one of many throughout the world.
