No Martial Arts Experience Needed

Our business model is designed to place the day-to-day responsibilities of operating the studio on a well-trained, highly competent instructor who is given intensive training at our headquarters in Knoxville, Tennessee. The instructor is assigned a list of duties to fulfill throughout the day to benefit the franchise owner.

While the instructor is running the studio, your primary responsibility is to make sure your students have a world class martial arts experience. Your role will be in networking, building relationships with your community, marketing with our proven systems and implementing our processes that you will learn during training at our headquarters.

Third Party Financing Available

To make the investment even more affordable for new franchisees, Premier Martial Arts has relationships with a number of third-party financial institutions that may be able to help you with financing.
