"Empowering Lives Through Martial Arts!"


Premier Martial Arts Marietta and the Academy of Qigong & Internal Studies opened its doors in August of 1993. It is located in Marietta on the corner of Canton Rd & New Chastain Rd in the New Chastain Corners Kroger Shopping Center (about 2.5 miles from Town Center Mall). 

Premier Martial Arts Marietta is owned and operated by its founder, 7th Degree Senior Master, Michael Reid. The Center features two training areas that are equipped with top of the line training mats for safety and training comforts. Our training atmosphere reflects the students of the Center: friendly and energetic, yet serious about martial arts growth and development.
Master Reid and instructors of the Premier Martial Arts Marietta and the Academy of Qigong & Internal Studies work daily to provide a positive atmosphere in the Center's adult Krav Maga, Kung Fu and Tai Chi programs. The Youth "Little Champs" and "Kidz” programs encourage students to look inside of themselves and find new levels of achievement. The school also serves the community by giving martial demonstrations, free seminars, and contributing to charities. Master Reid personally gives Tai Chi and Kung Fu workshops in many locations throughout Cobb and surrounding counties, and he speaks to both adult and youth organizations.   

Premier Martial Arts and the Academy of Qigong & Internal Studies are  also part of a large national and international network of schools and senior level martial artists. This network ensures that our students receive a diverse spectrum of martial training and community
