Combining traditional and modern teaching techniques and principles to fit all ages and all physical levels - we focus on character development in young children, teens, and adults.

Some of our adult members are parents of our younger students, teens love to blow off steam with us and gain a positive body image, and kids have an absolute blast in our fitness featured high energy classes.

Beginners welcome! Our students come from all walks of life and start at different fitness levels. We love to work with beginners and elite athletes alike. No matter what your starting level is, you'll get a great workout, gain lean muscle, and learn techniques to keep you and your family safe.

We truly believe that through martial arts training, students can improve on multiple areas of their physical well being and character development.

  • Teens and Adults Martial Arts improve strength, agility, coordination, maintain a healthy weight and prepare for all of life's many challenges.
  • Kids build character serving as foundation for their focus, listening and self control skills.

All skill levels learn how to spot sticky situations so they can walk away before things get bad, and lastly...how to defend themselves if they need to. Punching, kicking, self-respect, and respect for authority are the focus.

You won't be judged or compared to others - all of your success comes from you doing the best YOU can do. At ABBA Karate Martial Arts Peachtree City we use Martial arts as a tool to teach students discipline and respect for themselves, parents, friends and others around them. The uniqueness of Martial Arts is that it's an individual sport, where a student is judged solely on their own performance and not compared to others in class.

To succeed in class the students must work together as a team, thus developing teamwork and social skills - but the effort you put into your training will dictate just how far YOU go in your own training.

Our curriculum and classes are age and level appropriate and incorporate not only Taekwondo but also the elements of Judo and Grappling making our classes dynamic, fun yet challenging for all ages and levels.

Whether it is an introduction to martial arts, or inspiration to be a national champion, ABBA Karate Martial Arts Peachtree City provides the facility and resources to achieve the goals for yourself, your child and your family.
