HARD TARGET Martial Arts in Charlotte, North Carolina, opened in 2006 with the goal of bringing world-class Martial Arts instruction to the men, women and children of our community. There are many factors to consider when choosing a Martial Arts school for yourself or your child, and we believe that HARD TARGET will exceed all of your expectations!
Our Adult Programs offer classes five days per week in Jeet Kune Do (JKD), Kali Blade & Stick Combat, Muay Thai, and MMA/Combat Submission Wrestling. Our children’s classes, the Mini Dragons and Mighty Dragons, are designed for age groups 4 to 6 and 7 to 14.
