The Central Delaware
Chamber of Commerce hosted a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for Premier Martial Arts
on Friday, September 6th, at 12 pm. The ceremony was held at 321 Independence Blvd. in Dover. Chamber
members, ambassadors, and staff members joined owners, Alan and Monica Garcia, in
celebrating their new location in the Greentree Shopping Center.
Premier Martial Arts (PMA) seeks to empower lives through
the Martial Arts, while fostering integrity, leadership, self-defense, and
physical fitness. Since taking ownership
of the business 3½ years ago upon the retirement of their mentors, Mr. &
Mrs. Jonathan Stewart, the Garcias and their team have worked steadily to grow
and introduce members to KRAV MAGA (Israeli Self-Defense) and mixed martial
arts. PMA has the distinction of being the only certifiable KRAV MAGA school in
Delaware. PMA offers a wide variety of
martial arts classes for students age 3 through adulthood. In addition to private lessons for
self-defense, they offer Sparring, Kickboxing, Brazilian Ju-Jitsu, Weapons
Training, a Children’s After-School Program, Premier Training for Leadership,
and Basic & Black Belt Training.
order to accommodate the growth in their membership, the Garcia’s have moved to
a larger facility, but have remained in the immediate area of their former
studio. They were thrilled to be able to
celebrate this milestone in the company’s growth, welcome new members into a new
PMA home, and express gratitude to those who have made this transition
With a strong history of community involvement, Premier
Martial Arts has played a significant role in the Dover area. Their work with local school and businesses
to promote safety and self-defense has been invaluable. Their team has also provided free Weapon
Defense Workshops and has taken part in Capital School District Celebration,
Kickboxing with Wesley College Women’s Soccer Team, Dover Days, and the annual
Dover African American Festival. As they
grow, they are hopeful to be able to reach out to more individuals and families
in and throughout the state of Delaware.
