About Us

Christian Martial Arts Association in Summerville, South Carolina, is the only certified Christian nonprofit martial arts training club in the world. We offer rigorous courses in the art of self-defense, while keeping faith at the center of our teachings. For people that enjoy full-contact competitions, we provide support to establish other martial arts schools by offering rank testing for experienced instructors.

Whether you need a focused physical activity or a new way to strengthen the bonds of fellowship, our community is open to all. Pastors are invited to come train with us for free in a safe and supportive environment.

Our owner, Robert Graham, is a two-time inducted member of the USA Martial Arts Hall of Fame and has more than 15 years of fighting experience. He trained under the ninth-degree Black Belt Heavyweight World Champion Grand Master Lee Young Ha. For karate, Graham worked with Grand Master Dale Coker in Thailand. All-South Heavyweight Champion and NWA British Commonwealth Heavyweight Championship holder in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Tommy Seigler, also coached both Rodney and Robert Graham. When you need expert training in the martial arts, join Christian Martial Arts Association.
