Certified Instructors

In today’s world, it is important that we learn to defend ourselves and gain the edge in life. We, as a family operated academy, are mindful that every person who enters our academy does so for a different personal reason. We have students who join us to improve their lives, learn self defense, improve focus, build confidence, build self esteem, get in shape, build strength, improve stamina, attain peace of mind or just to have a fun workout. If you train with us you will not only learn from top instructors but you will be earning a prestigious black belt recognized worldwide.

Our world certified masters and instructors treat all our students as family. They are always working to change lives in a positive way based on each individual’s personality, needs and goals. Martial Arts are about developing stronger, more confident leaders for a brighter tomorrow and a better community. Gallatin Martial Arts will also try to continue helping the area schools, the less fortunate children, raising money for children’s cancer research, our overseas christian missions and helping local animal shelters.
