Georgia Martial Arts & Self Defense is a Family owned and operated martial arts & fitness academy. Originally founded in 1981, we have always focused on helping students meet their personal goals in a multitude of areas including martial arts, self-defense, physical fitness, and personal growth. We strive to create a family environment that is safe and non-threatening while always focusing on helping our students meet their personal goals.


Martial Arts is very important to Georgia Martial Arts & Self-Defense. Our instructors are here to guide, instruct, and motivate our members to be the best they can be and impact Acworth in a positive way. We are here to help parents raise their children to be confident leaders, boost their self-esteem, feel healthy, and get in great physical shape.

  • Focus

    Many parents see an improvement in their child’s learning and an increased attention span and focus in school
  • Social

    We create a friendly atmosphere where the children are motivated to help each other achieve their individual goals.
  • Strength

    Child-obesity is a serious problem in the United States, so introducing your child to martial arts is a great way to get them moving!
