About this pro

I have been teaching martial arts for over 25 years.   I have a 2nd degree black belt in tae kwon do, a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and have also trained in Kali and Hapkido.

I can tailor the training for whatever you are looking for.   Traditional training, self defense,  fitness,  just let me know what your goals are and we can create a plan for you. 

Im available for private individual lessons and group lessons.  

I take pride in seeing my students progress and reach their potential.  Watching them progress in both martial arts as well as their personal and professional life is a huge plus.

    Ronny trains both the practitioner and the skillset. He has decades of experience that demonstrates his expertise in integrating both old school, old world martial arts and modern day combat. You will grow as a martial artists, a student, and a person. Train with him.

  • John Kurokawa

    Ron Gamboa is an excellent martial artist; since I started to train with him, he continues to maintain an infectious enthusiasm which he brings to his personal practice and his teaching. While he keeps up to date on all the new developments in the martial arts, his training is based on time-tested and time-honored methods and he is able to integrate the two for dynamic, effective, and fun training! Highly recommended!

  • Leanne Belga

    Martial Arts has taught me many things; respect, discipline, confidence, etc. And as I grew older, my training became more serious, not because of my love of the sport, but because of the support I had from Mr. Troy and Mr. Gamboa. Their passion for not only the sport, but for their students is greatly shown. Specifically, Mr. Gamboa instructed classes that pushed everyone’s ability's to be at the top. And for that, Martial Arts has become a important part in my life.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

For 1:1 private lessons, I tailor the class depending on what the student wants to accomplish.  Self Defense vs Competition vs Fitness will take different approaches.  Ongoing discussion to tweak the training that will be best for the student.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have over 30 years of martial arts experience.  I have ran my own school before as well as being one of the main instructors at the Stockbridge Tae Kwon Do Academy in GA.  I have taught students from 4 years old to 65 years old.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

In general, private lessons will be $30/hr.  


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching in 1992 after I received my 1st degree black belt.  I ran taught at the University of Cincinnati branch of IK Kim Tae Kwon Do from 1993-1998.  I took some time off from teaching after graduating school and began teaching again from 2005-2009 as one of the head instructors at the Stockbridge Tae Kwon Do Academy in Stockbridge, GA.  I feel that as black belts and instructors, that we have a responsibility to continue to promote the martial arts to those that want to learn.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have taught students from 4 years old to 65 and older and many ages inbetween.  I have taught all different skill levels and abilities, from beginners to national champions.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Watch the class and talk to the students and the instructor.  Try out the class and see if you like it before getting into any contract.  Ideally, you don't want to be in a contract situation.  But before you get into the situation, the instructor / school should be willing to let you train for at least a month to make sure it's something that you want to do.

Ask as many questions as you want.  Be comfortable with asking the question as well as with the response.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Write down you goals, big or small, before talking to your teacher.  Write down as much detail as you can because your idea of asuccess and the teacher's idea could be 2 very different things.
