Awesome Martial Arts


Throughout his history as both student and teacher, Awesome Martial Arts Academy owner and head instructor Rickard Molin noticed one common theme: too many schools were focused on the profits instead of the students.

After returning to his home state of North Carolina, Molin was determined to open a school that approached martial arts instruction differently. In October 2018, that dream came to fruition and Awesome Martial Arts was born.

Since then, Molin has maintained an environment focused on fun, connecting with the community, and developing a strong relationship with every student who walks in the door.
