PAMA is a Traditional Martial Arts School and a contemporary school for the whole family.
- KENPO KARATE, the original mixed martial art, for its realistic self-defense and personalized training through private lessons and mentoring.
- LATOSA ESCRIMA, for its weapons training & power concepts.
- TAI CHI, for its health and healing aspects.
Our Kenpo Program offers a combination of
- Physical conditioning
- Kick Boxing
- Katas & Techniques
- Tai Chi
- Character development
- Self healing
We encourage students to take private lessons so their teacher-mentor can personalize their training to what works best for each individual.
Children are taught the same Kenpo Karate as adults, but with more emphasis on physical fitness and self discipline. We also have “bully” defense and awareness-escape drills.
At PAMA we teach Children and Adults Martial Arts’ traditional values, mixed with humor & fun. All students earn their belts through testing. We do not award Black Belts to children because we feel that a Black Belt must be able to defend themselves against adults. Also, we require black belt candidates to write a 10 page thesis paper, pass an anatomy-exercise physiology test, and either do volunteer work or create a personal Kata.
