The Story of H.T.A.
Martial Arts Academy
The first HTA Academy was founded in July of 2005 by Master Young Jin Lee. His vision was to create solid, well-rounded training and strong family values to help each individual gain the opportunity to live a happier, healthier life with tools to create a successful future. Since then H.T.A. has been helping the communities of St. Clair and Madison Counties by participating in community events and giving our students a strong foundation in their lives by helping them to set goals, strive for greater academic achievement, to believe in themselves and have hope for a brighter tomorrow.
HTA has become widely recognized and respected throughout the taekwondo community with our Hallelujah Demonstration Team performing demonstrations in various locations including St. Louis, MO, Chicago, IL, New York and Atlanta, Georgia.
