About Us


Tennessee Martial Arts University (TMAU) has been serving Sevier County for over 30 years, beginning in the Sevierville and Gatlinburg Community Centers and presently at 415 Maryville 411 Highway since 1995, located less than one mile off Chapman Highway in Seymour. We belong to the United States Traditional Martial Arts Society which aids instructors in keeping with international traditional standards allowing students to gain knowledge that is accepted worldwide at other accredited traditional schools.

The top instructors have approximately 30 years experience each and, although we teach and encourage leadership skills and upper-rank responsibility in assistance to novice and intermediate students, all instruction is issued by certified black belts with a minimum of approximately 3 to 5 years experience. We periodically review our lesson plans and fees to compare them with professional schools from around the U.S. and rate among the top schools at about half the price.
