I have trained at all three locations; Marietta, Intown, and Norcross and each one is just like the other in terms of training, instructors, community, etc. If you want a martial art that will challenge you, then this is the place. You will see a multitude of forms/styles, from Tai Chi to Ba Gua Zhang to Xing Yi Quan on the internal side, and Tiger, Mantis, Crane, Bird, and numerous weapons on the external side. You have to work hard to obtain a belt, they simply do not hand them out to people who show up and pay. Once you hit Brown belt and above, they really expect a lot from you, not because they enjoy watching you struggle, but because they want to make you better than you are, and so that you don't make a fool of yourself when you test in front of the Masters, Sifus, and teachers. They offer great Adult and Kids classes at convenient times and, for adults, two different programs to choose from, External - hard and fast paced, and Internal - Slow and graceful. Stop by any of the centers and watch a class, talk with the instructors, talk with the students, and see what they have to say, they are always willing to talk with people who have an interest in the martial arts. If you like what you see and hear, then sign up for the 2 week trial and give it a shot. You won't be disappointed.
