Ron Tramontano is the Chairman and Founder of NATSDF “ North American Tang Soo Do Federation” & TMAAN “The Martial Arts Action Network”, a 24/7 Cable Television Network devoted to the world of martial arts and its practitioners. TMAAN or “TMAN” as it is called had offices located at 22 Universal Studios, Florida in the mid to late nineties but are now located in Boca Raton Florida.  Master Ron Tramontano is an extremely successful entrepreneur, businessman, author and martial arts master. As the head of the North American Tang Soo Do Federation, Tramontano teaches and oversees the instruction of over five hundred students and one hundred and sixty black belts a week at his facility in Boca Raton, Florida. He, along with Dr. Ron Valli, are the creators of one of the largest martial arts websites in the world, “The Martial Arts Network On-Line”. “www.tman.com” .


Author of two published books on martial arts, “A Practical Guide to Self Defense thru The Martial Arts” and “The Tang Soo Do Forms Workbook”, Master Tramontano has two other books, one, an e-book, titled “Once Upon A Masters Time,” Martial Arts Stories of Wisdom, Meant To Motivate Young Minds. This book is hosted and may be purchased at http://www.lulu.com/content/2755013.  Tramontano, when asked will tell you he is a person that makes things happen.  I see it, and then I create it.


Ron Tramontano tested in the 75th Dan testing and received his Dan rank from Grand Master Hwang Kee. He started his martial arts training in Newburgh, New York, under the tutelage of Master Don Southerton. At the time, Master Southerton was the chief instructor at West Point Military Academy where Tramontano attended OCS “Officers Candidate School” for one year after serving two years in the military.


If you stop to see Master Tramontano at his school in Boca Raton, Florida, “West Boca Karate”, you will find a beautifully kept, technically modern facility. You can view the many photograph and pictures of Master Tramontano with Chuck Norris, Don “The “Dragon” Wilson, Cynthia Rothrock and many other martial arts icon.


Tramontano worked for the New York Telephone Company for period of fourteen years in a highly specialized department. This department handled all live televised events from presidential elections, to the hostages being returned from Iran in the seventies, to the Pope visiting New York, and the construction of CNN transmitting facility at the Twin Towers in New York. Tramontano’s job, at this time, was to provide Broadcasters like NBC, CBS and ABC, to mention just a few, with a studio to transmitter link. Sometimes this link, “Video Circuit”, was hard wired but most of the time was created by a Microwave Remote transmission.


Master Tramontano moved to Boca Raton, Florida where he was employed by a Miami based communication company, Teltec Communication Inc, where he helped engineer and build Teltec’s first long distance microwave communications system.


After completing the Teltec microwave system, Tramontano went on to open West Boca Karate Center. Now in its twenty third year, he has grown this school to be one of the largest schools in this country known for its quality Black Belt instruction and dedication to its youth.


Master Tramontano was born in 1948 in New York. He grew up in the Bronx, a borough of New York City. He attended Rockland Community College, where he majored in electronics. He graduated with a Bachelor of Electronics from The Metropolitan College. An avid reader and seminar attendee, Tramontano follows the works of such people as Anthony Robbins, Jim Rohn and Roger Dawson, to name a few. He is a licensed pilot, likes to play the guitar and is an accomplished pianist. Master Tramontano lives with his wife Linda, in Lake Worth, Florida. Master Tramontano is often heard saying to his students and instructors  the only way you will ever know if you are in the right profession is to ask yourself this question, “If you were to win the lottery tomorrow, would you continue to do what you do? My answer is always the same, yes, I would.
