Franchise Opportunity

The National Martial Arts League as a Martial Arts franchisor, we offer for sale the following franchises:

  • A National Martial Arts League Team Franchise
  • A Help Stand-Up Against Violence Everyone (S.A.V.E.) America Martial Arts School Franchise
  • And the Master Franchise, which is a combination of both

Martial Arts converts can be gotten from school shows and organised tournaments by promoters.  However, it is important to note that a series of quality training from professional teachers/masters with adequate tools will not only bring out a good performance; also, a stronger body, a sharper mind, increased self-confidence, self-discipline and the ability to physically defend yourself when the need arises.

The practicing of martial arts is all about the building of self-confidence, character development, and being responsible within the community; it is not just kicking and punching techniques.  Whenever martial arts are mentioned, what comes to most people’s mind is fighting, but it goes beyond that.  It is more of focusing on the personal growth; body building and character development.

The National Martial Arts League always encourages the entire family to enroll in martial arts’ training.  The more people that get involved the better society we have.  There is no age barrier; martial arts are good for both children and adults.  Irrespective of your profession, you can choose from any of the martial arts that catch your fancy; be it: Karate, Kung Fu, Taekwondo, Judo, Aikido, Tai Chi, Kendo, etc.  Though the techniques involved in each of them might not be the same, but the end-results are the same.
