PMA Huntingdon Valley
Awesome Sensei with a variety of curriculum focused on safety in training, yet devestating effectiveness in crisis. Great focus of Sensei David and Senpai Julian , Sensei Chris &Ken on character for the young ones. Great overall place to learn!
Best dojo bar none!
Sensei David is a one of a kind instructor who has a gift to teach people, and truly cares about all his students not just as students, but as human beings as well. Kids class builds the base for the future and I can't express how much starting at a young age benefited me as an adult from not only a physical & skill standpoint, but from a mental as well. The adults class is exposes you to a new way of knowing how to approach various life situations. I can't imagine training anywhere else!!
This school is fantastic! I came in with only knowing basic karate knowledge. Sensei David and Senpai Julian are awesome teachers who take the time to teach you skills and how to apply them to real life. Each class gets you pumped for the next class. You never know what to expect since each class is different. Always high intensity and great drills. I addicted to these classes and hate missing a day. I have improved as a person on the inside and outside because of this school. I have also made a great group of friends. Love my PMA family!
The best place to go for self defense
I love the curriculum at PMA! The pace is amazing and sensei David makes sure you thoroughly understand the techniques before moving on. I have been to other schools that go through the motions without teaching you skills. The reason I love pma is simple: IT WORKS! One of my closest friends is an amateur mma fighter. He has seen a lot of people get their money taken from schools that know nothing. After consulting with him about our curriculum, the only thing he could say about premier was that it was legitimate. If you're looking for a school that can actually push you, motivate you to be better, and give you skills to survive in the street, then don't hesistate to sign up at premier!
Dedicated staff and top notch curriculum
PMA has a dedicated staff and owner that pushes each individual to be their best. The curriculum is challenging and intense. My son has learned so much in the five years since we enrolled and we are thrilled with his progress over the years.
We first met Sensai David at an event at our synagogue. I was at the time investigating karate schools for my then 6 year old. I liked the way he worked with the kids so we decided to check out the school. My son has been training there for 2 1/2 years now and I am very happy with the school. I like the classes, the kids work hard but have fun doing it. When my son was wavering and giving me a hard time about going to class (he wanted to sit on his butt at home) Sensai David worked with me to get him involved again. I would highly recommend this school to anyone.
Amazing Experience With PMA
My entire family trains at PMA, including my wife and two sons. PMA has helped both my sons becoming physically stronger, more confident, and disciplined. My wife who has no previous martial arts experience was nervous and unsure when we first got started. After training for several months and earning her yellow belt she is 100% more confident that she can handle herself on the streets. PMA has become apart of our family and we couldn't imagine life without David and his amazing team!!
Great Place For Kids
Very happy that my boys go here - they both look forward to this every week! Sensei Dave is a great influence on them both as they are dedicated to Karate as a sport and personal fitness and growth. I believe that every kid needs to do this along with their other sports and activities, and I definitely recommend Premier as the place.
Best Martial Art School Ever
The school is like my second home. Everyone in our household trains at the school. Sensei Dave, Julian, Ken, and the rest PMA team are awesome. I don't know where I would be without Sensei David Pantano and his school. I love to train there. My kids and wife love training there. Best place to train, sensei Dave is awesome teacher, patient and very knowledgeable.
It wasn't my idea to enroll my daughter. She came to me and asking to go. We were at dance class next door and she kept asking me to "only just take a look" so I did and I saw in her eyes that she is begging me to sign her up so I did. I wasn't sure if she will stick with it. She never being so consistent. When she started she had many socials issues at school. She was bullied always. She also has adhd that makes it even worse. A year after I can say outloud that being here was a life saver. My daughter became confident, strong, consistent, thriving. From a sad kid she become happy, made friends and above all she start appreciating herself. Her report card was absolutely great. There are not enough words to express my appreciation to sensei David and Senpai Julian. PMA is not just a Martial arts school, it is one big loving family.
