How it All Began

Master Ray’s Martial Arts Training

Sa Bom Nim Saltamacchio (Master Ray) received his Black Belt in 1992 from TM Kim Karate in Stone Mountain, GA under the direction of Kwan Jang Nim TH Kim and his father Chong Jae Nim TM Kim. Soon afterward Sa Bom Nim Saltamacchio moved to Eatonton, GA where he opened his own Photography Studio. Missing his martial arts training he started teaching the art of Tang Soo Do part-time to children. His dream was to someday open his own Martial Arts School dedicating all of his time to helping others.

Passion for Teaching

In 2008 Sa Bom Nim Saltamacchio’s dream came true when he went from teaching part-time to opening a full-time school along with his wife Brenda.

Sa Bom Nim Saltamacchio’s passion for improving physical fitness, mental discipline, and spiritual strength is apparent in every class he teaches. He has been a positive influence in the lives of many and takes a personal interest in each student and their family. His ability to reach children and adults alike has earned Saltamacchio’s Tang Soo Do Karate a reputation as the best martial arts school in the area.

His focus on Respect, Confidence, Discipline, and Vision has made him one of the most sought-after martial arts instructors in Georgia.
