FOUNDER OF NSMTA:
Marc Meltzer has been involved in the martial arts since he was eleven years old. Earning various color belts in several styles. He received his 1st Degree Black Belt from Brian Malik at the International Tae Kwon Do Academy in Marblehead Ma. His highest rank was of a 2nd Degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do under the famed He Ill Cho out of Los Angeles Ca.
Meltzer was first introduced to Muay Thai, before any of it’s notoriety in the US, in the early 90′s while still in college with now Kru Mark Nardone. Right away Meltzer realized Muay Thai’s potential as a dominant force to be reckoned with as a martial art and as a competitive sport. He discontinued all training in other arts to devote his full attention to Muay Thai training.
