The Martial Arts Center

The Martial Arts Center is located in the old Shepherd Bag and Textile Mill. 

Much of the old mill is no longer standing, opening up parking and outdoor space for various Center activities, but the mill's main building still stands and comprises the Center's vast workout areas and competition facilities.

The Center rents space to tenants, such as Abby's (women's outdoor wear), Fruits and Juice (a juice and sandwich bar), and Ai Kee! (a martial arts training facility), and more. 

The Center also hosts competitions and sends athletes to far-flung locations, such as South Africa, and has established a name for itself in the martial arts world.

The Center hosts Kevin Lee's Hollywood film audition in Book 1 of The Human-Hybrid Project, Shattered by Glass.
