Contreras Martial Arts Academy has been changing the lives of students in our community since 1998. Our goal is not only to create the next generation of martial artists but to build a better world. We cultivate the confidence and skill set of every student that walks through our doors, whether it’s your first class or you’re already a black belt. After going through the Contreras Martial Arts Academy curriculum, you are bound to grow immensely as both a martial artist and a person.
Our primary goal for our students is to increase their self-esteem, self-confidence, & self-discipline through Martial Arts training. Of course, we teach self-defense but that is only one aspect of our program. Our interest is more in line with creating better students, employees, children, parents, spouses, families, and citizens.

Great staff and great people. I trust my kids with the staff here to the end. They teach great values and give full support to every student. Our whole family has taken a variety of classes here and I would recommend it to all, young and old.
Our family has all been blessed in a special way becoming a part of Senior Master Contreras' Martial Arts Academy. Their team is always encouraging everyone to have a great, fun experience learning how to defend themselves. We are so excited to always learn new things at the dojang in Athens. Thanks to all the instructors. You are the best!
Absolutely love this school and it’s instructors. Great programs for kids and adults. My daughter has been taking it for 4 yrs and continues to love it. Now the entire family does it together. Highly recommend.
This is a wonderful place! My son attends and just absolutely adores everyone. They do such a great job and I always feel welcomed. These fantastic instructors are molding my child into being an amazing and productive person.
Master Contreras and his staff are incredible at what they do. They do more than teach my son taekwondo. They teach him respect, patience, self control, and so many more character traits we feel are so important to his success and growth. We highly recommend this school to everyone!
Excellent classes and people!!! If you're willing to put in the work and dedication, and have fun along the way, this is the place to be. It's not only a way to learn self-defense, it's a community of skilled and friendly people!
SM Contreras is a great instructor and has a great teaching spirit. He is patient when he works with those that don't quite understand and cannot grasp quickly. He is always encouraging giving praises to everyone and he doesn't treat anyone differently.
