Own one of the most successful martial arts school franchises
Interest in martial arts is at an all-time high; popular culture is inundated with examples of martial artists, leading new generations of people to martial arts for fitness and more structured ways to work out. Parents are turning to martial arts as a sport for kids, often with the goal of developing character while having fun.
Premier Martial Arts is one of the nation’s leading investment opportunities in this attractive market segment. We’re led by industry experts and martial artists Barry Van Over and Myles Baker, who have spent two decades developing high-performance systems to help more than 100 independent martial arts schools grow from struggling businesses to stable and successful enterprises.
Premier Martial Arts uses this experience — combined with a small-footprint martial arts school and a popular, standard curriculum — to make for an attractive, low-investment and easy-to-operate martial arts school franchise. After growing our brand to 70 locations across the country, Premier Martial Arts is excited to help entrepreneurs with a passion for martial arts become a meaningful part of their community in a business that has the power to both help people of all ages and make a great living.
