Urban Revolution Martial Arts was founded by Mr. Joe Granieri & Mrs. Julia Granieri in 2012. They are originally from Jacksonville, Florida under the instruction of Grand Master Bill Clark.
After almost 2 decades of training and teaching Martial Arts in Florida, they decided to further their career and build a family together in North Carolina. Mr. & Mrs. Granieri had been teaching for 4 years in Charlotte prior to opening URMA in the Arboretum.
Through their Martial Arts Instruction, they have taught over 1,500 families in the Charlotte area. In addition to teaching in the academy, they have also been volunteers for local elementary, middle, and high schools.
