Not Your Average Martial Arts Center

We wanted to learn all about Legacy Martial Arts and its impressive online reputation, so we took a few minutes to talk with the owner, Felix Garcia.

The first question we had for Felix was what is it that sets Legacy Martial Arts apart from their competition in Maryland. Here’s Felix’s response:

“We are very serious about martial arts. Our kids go to tournaments and compete nationally and internationally.”

Felix went on to tell us that he started doing martial arts when he was just 14 years old and decided to open his own company two years ago. He started with zero students, but today, he helps to train almost 100 athletes.

We also wanted to know what their mission is at Legacy Martial Arts and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Felix had to say:

“[Our mission is to] create a legacy one student at a time.”

Building Success by Giving Customers What They Want

Felix attributes Legacy Martial Arts’ strong online reputation to their commitment to giving their customers what they want. He added:

“We take pride in martial arts; we are not just an after-school program.”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Legacy Martial Arts has gotten their name out there through paper ads — such as fliers they put up on church bulletin boards — and online marketing — specifically Google and Facebook ads — but their best source of new business comes from word of mouth and referrals from happy students and their families.

There are so many martial arts centers out there looking to build the kind of online reputation Legacy Martial Arts has. Here’s Felix’s expert advice for them:

“Be honest about your work and company. Parents don’t want you to waste their time.”


Congratulations to the team at Legacy Martial Arts for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Felix, for taking the time to speak with us!
