our vision


Our programs are designed to promote self-confidence and self-esteem. Recent studies have shown that programs that focus on personal achievement such as martial arts are vastly more effective than any other form of exercise


Fayetteville Martial Arts has been providing this exceptional martial arts instruction to students of all ages since 1989. FMA is very unique martial arts school. We take the progressive techniques of mixed martial arts and unite them with tradition and principles of the past. We also provide an authentic, high level, competitive martial arts experience to students in safe and supportive environment. We are not a “fighters” gym. We have a tradition of structured classes, uniforms and etiquette. Our physical curriculum is a balance of non-violent conflict resolution, scenario-based self-defense and traditional marital art techniques which are powerful and beautiful.
