Our school is owned and operated by Ron and Brenda Campbell.
Mr. Ron Campbell has been training in ATA Taekwondo since 2003. He is currently a 3rd Degree Black Belt. He was a triple crown State Champion four different years. He was in the top ten in the world in Sparring, Forms and Weapons in 2007 and was invited to compete at the World Championships in Little Rock, Arkansas. He won the gold medal in sparring and is the 2007 World Champion in Sparring for his age group - the first and only World Champion in Maine to date. We opened our first school in Bucksport in March of 2009 and the newest school in Bangor, in May of 2011. Mrs. Campbell manages both schools. Unfortunately, on September 1, 2013, the Bucksport school closed.
We currently have instructors who are dedicated to giving our students the best in Taekwondo training.
4th Degree Black Belt Mr. John Murray
Mr. Murray began his Martial Arts career in 1995 at the age of 6, when his parents informed him he needed something to do to keep him out of trouble. In 2004, the ATA hosted their first ever International Invitational World Championship in Korea. Mr. Murray was invited to compete. It was a great learning experience and at the time he was only 14. Many parents would not allow their child to travel half way around the world! He was the triple crown state champion in 2006 and 2011. Martial Arts has made Mr. Murray grow up over the years. Being an instructor still allows him to be the kid that he is! Mr.Murray has two sons and we're all sure they will follow in dad's footsteps.
