Welcome to North Metro Martial Arts Foundation. 

The mission of the North Metro Martial Arts Foundation is to encourage each student to achieve their own personal victory, pilsung, by providing exceptional martial arts training in a family-focused environment. Students not only develop self-control, discipline, and respect, they also build pro-social, leadership, and life skills through the variety of integrated programs that are offered; mentoring, after school programs, and traditional martial arts classes.

Being one of the only nonprofit martial arts studios in the southeast, the North Metro Martial Arts Foundation supports programming for all youth, ages 4 and up.  Our studio also has a heart for youth with special needs, with over 30% of our youth having a special need such as sensory processing disorder, autism, cystic fibrosis, or cerebral palsy.

The studio is also a Partner in Education with Cobb County Schools, and provides a martial arts mentoring program to youth who are at-risk.  In addition, we assist those who come from low-income families. Over 40% of the 125 youth served in our programs are from families who are experiencing a financial hardship and do not have the ability to pay the full tuition. Your donation to the North Metro Martial Arts Foundation will provide our youth with an opportunity to learn values of martial arts that they can use to become meaningful
members of their community.
