In California any felony crime that involves force is typically a violent felony. I would suggest we wait and hear from a Georgia attorney in regards to a specific answer to your question.

It is a crime of violence to rob someone, even without a gun. However, it is not considered a "serious violent felony" for purposes of enhanced punishment. The punishment for robbery by force is 1-20 years.
