With over twenty years of experience and black belts in three separate martial arts, head instructor Dave Macomber has led an impressive career in the field of sport karate: a two-time member of the TPA (Tournament Promoter's Association) Hall of Fame and winner of over two dozen Grand Championship titles (including the coveted Diamond Nationals in Minneapolis, Minnesota), Mr. Macomber was an inductee to the 1999 USA International Hall of Fame (along with Shannon Lee, daughter of the late Bruce Lee). Mr. Macomber holds Black Belt rankings in Tang Soo Do, Tae Kwon Do, and American Kenpo. He is the recipient of the 1992 NASKA (North American Sport Karate Association) Sportsman of the Year Award and was named the NASKA Overall Black Belt of the Year as the competitor with the highest simultaneous ranking in forms, weapons and fighting competition in North America in 1993. He was ranked number one in the Korean Forms division by NASKA for four years, and represented the United States in competition against twenty-three other countries at the 1997 WKA Internationals in Toronto, Canada, where he garnered a bronze medal.
Retired from competition, Macomber continues his own personal training, broadening his martial arts horizons, and transmitting new knowledge to his experienced staff of black belt instructors and to the students of the school.
