Getting Into Shape Has Never Been More Fun!

Adult Boxing

This class includes punching, knee strikes, and elbows, but no kicking. This is ideal for people who lack flexibility or have little interest in learning how to kick.

Adult Kickboxing

This is more challenging than our Boxing class because kicking takes far more effort than punching. Kicking adds an athletic challenge and variety to the class not to mention kicking shapes your legs so if you’ve ever wanted the legs of a dancer, kicking will sculpt them for you.


  • PMA’s teaching goes beyond the classroom and into daily life lessons teaching respect, team work, and fun. Our daughter started as a little dragon and looked up to the older kids and now she’s one of the older kids helping the younger kids get started. We love it there and the PMA family.

  • My eldest started training at PMA at the age of 6, and I quickly followed: the rave reviews from friends brought us in, but it was what we saw in the classes and the support of the instructors for all of their students that told us we had “found a home.”

  • Master Ken has a great kids program. Very reasonable to work with. These people are very honorable. If you are in the Anaheim area, you should give them a visit.

    Charles Ash
  • PMA did wonders for me as a child and gave me the opportunity to make a few life long friends! I suggest that any parent interested in getting their children into any kind of martial arts (or kick boxing) classes, my first instinct would be to do it with PMA.

    Cherea Smith
  • I can say enough positive things about PMA. Family-like environment, teaches respect, discipline and life lessons all while having fun!

    Tiffany Smolinski Gommel
  • Our son loves the karate program at PMA. The instructors deeply care about the students and my son has learned a lot about respect & self control.
