About Us – History
North Metro Martial Arts (NMMA) was created to provide exceptional martial arts training in a family friendly environment that encourages participation and growth for all its students. Since its inception in 2013, NMMA has grown to provide not
only martial arts instruction but afterschool, mentor and leadership programs that are based on the foundational principles of martial arts. NMMA programs have been created to fit the emerging needs of the surrounding community to provide
a safe and positive environment that builds confidence, self-esteem, fitness, self-defense and life skills. We promote leadership by exposing our students to opportunities within their communities and inside our classes that allow for them
to translate the values of martial arts into becoming meaningful members of their communities. In addition, all of our programs are integrated and modified to each individual’s strengths and abilities, as over 30 percent of our student population has a special need (i.e., sensory processing disorders, autism, intellectual and developmental disabilities.
North Metro Martial Arts is a Partner in Education through the Cobb County School District. As a Partner in Education, NMMA works with the schools in our area to support and enrich the education of their students.
