My Son has been attending classes at Pro Martial Arts Kenwood since 2015. Master Damien, Miss Kara and Mr. David have been instrumental in teaching my son the true meaning of respect and honor. They also have engrained in him a level of discipline that is above and beyond that of his similarly aged peers. As a result of his training at Pro Martial Arts, my son has developed advanced levels of focus and self control. I couldn't be happier. I truly appreciate all you have done and continue to do.

My son loves his instructors at Pro Martial. They definitely go above and beyond the call of duty to train kids. We have been going there for more than a year and we only have good things to say about PMA. My son made good friends at this dojo and he looks forward to go train every day. My son has learned values along with self-defense skills. PMA made him very independent and focused. This is the place to go if you want your kids to learn motivational life skills along with martial art techniques.

This space and review does not give enough justice to Ms. Kara, Mr. Damien and the PRO Martial Arts-Kenwood family. I call them family because they are very supportive and work together to benefit the kids who are attending the classes. My son, Sami, joined the group in 2014. He is a preemie, so he is smaller than his peers, and he was starting to catch up with them. My wife and I decided to join PRO Martial Arts Kenwood to give him a boost of confidence, work on his motor skills, have discipline and respect, and get stronger. I remember when Sami started he could barely jump and do many of the exercises that other kids were doing. After 2 years being there, Ms. Kara and Mr. Damien worked with Sami. He finished all the stripped belts and now he is in the solid belts phase. He has discipline, respect, strength, etc. I highly recommend joining PRO Martial Arts Kenwood. Great people, great program, great family, and very beneficial to your kids.

I have two sons that attend Pro Martial Arts. My oldest has been in attendance since the opening three years ago. With the assistance of Mr. Damien and Ms. Kara, he has found his voice. He is confident in his abilities AND the abilities of his peers. He is capable of standing up for himself and those who need help. He is focused on his training to be a black belt but the training he has received in life, is irreplaceable. I am thankful for the dedication and support from the staff at PMA. My four year old is now ready to enter preschool this year because he's spent the last few months practicing mind, body and eye focus. PMA is so much more than just "karate".

Maggie Rossman-Roach

We have been very impressed with Pro Martial Arts - Kenwood. The instructors are fantastic! They are very dedicated, patient and make each class challenging but also fun for the students. We've seen a huge increase in the confidence and leadership skills of our children in the 3 years we've been with Pro Martial Arts and would highly recommend it to anyone interested.

My two girls have been going to this dojo for more than a year. I really like their curriculum and the way the instructors approach teaching it. Every class is different, so things are never repetitive. There is a lot of fun and encouragement. My girls enjoy PMA and it’s because of the positive instructors at this dojo. They are great at getting the kids to put in that extra effort all the while making them smile and have a good positive experience!

Melissa Previtera

My husband and two sons have been part of the family class for about the last six months and they absolutely love it! They are eager to go to class, to learn and to improve. This is the first extracurricular activity that has really captured their attention. On top of that Master Damien, Ms. Kara and Mr. David are great teachers!

We have been part of the Pro Martial Arts family for 4 years now and very happy about it. Started our journey with our son on kids class and now we are a martial arts family.
We like the partnership with the instructors to use martial arts as part of the education for our kids, as well as the physical challenge, the methodology and the overall atmosphere in classes.
Classes have a great environment where masters and classmates challenge and help each other in the journey. No matter what is your previous background in martial arts, you will find a path to grow and people to help you in your journey.

I was in Taekwondo when I was younger and I really wanted to get back into martial arts (as well as introduce my 9 year old son to it). I had been looking for a Martial Arts school that was more than just basic fitness course or constant sparring. Pro Martial Arts was perfect. The instructors are always very friendly and very knowledgeable. They take the time to really teach form, technique and purpose, not just fighting. When they say they are a family, they mean it as well. They have taken the time to learn about me and my son, what our goals are, and really work to tailor specific instructions to help us get better, not just teach a cookie-cutter class. This is an excellent school and I highly recommend it.

I would like to share with you what my family received in these past 4 years: support, strength, commitment, but most importantly a place where you can feel respected, accepted and empowered.

Our relocation to Cincinnati 6 years ago was very difficult for my daughter Maia. She was 3 1/2 years old and she didn't want to speak, eat or play with other kids. She was sad and we were sadder. I didn't know what to do. I found Pro Martial Arts Kenwood by chance and decided to give it a try even though we were not used to martial arts of any kind. I met Kara Hannah and Damien Hannah and I immediately believed this would be a good place for her, but I couldn't anticipate how much we were going to be gifted with.

Maia is almost 9 years old and she has become a strong girl, who feels that practice and discipline turn into achievements. She knows how to speak up or stand up if she faces a bullying situation, not only to herself but to others. I'm more than grateful to Pro Martial Arts Kenwood and the two amazing people that are behind it.

You might find other places to learn martial arts; but if you are looking for a place where your kids can learn values at the same time, this should be your choice.

Friendly staff, strong program with emphasis on tenants of martial arts and fitness. I have lost inches and gained muscle tone. They help me grow stronger in mind and body. I love this place.

We signed our 15-year old daughter up for her first lesson about a year ago. Although she was very hesitant in the beginning, the staff at PMA Kenwood has made this her favorite activity. Not only has she learned vital self defense skills, she has gained confidence in her ability to be an athlete and a strong, disciplined girl. We consider ourselves lucky to have found Mr. Damien and Miss Kara.

Just what I needed to round out my overall physical fitness. The instructors are great! They are always attentive and care about your overall performance and safety. The classes are never boring and always changing. I've been coming here for a little over a month now, loving it!

Pro Martial Arts is great about making things fun and interactive for a children. Even though the training is all about discipline and focus Pro Martial Arts is good at balancing that with allowing the child to let loose and enjoy their time training. Our son has developed tremendously from this experience.

We have been joining the family class for over a year and we absolutely love it. The instructors offers a friendly environment with personalized focus for each child or adult to learn at its own pace while staying challenged. Attending the family class is something we look forward every week. From a dojo perspective, location is great, facility is comfortable and well kept.

My daughter is 3 years old and has done both the Kinder Kicks and the Little Rhinos classes and has had an absolute blast! The dojo is very clean and organized. The instructors are very knowledgeable, personable and professional- what a skill to be able to teach toddlers all the way through adults! I love the self-discipline, coordination and confidence she has built through her classes - she has really blossomed! Highly recommend!

We have only had great experiences here. The mix of martial arts curriculum has done both of my kids wonders! They have been attending for 5+ years now and have continued to grow. The personal feel and relationships built with the instructors as well as other families at PMA are important to my family. I would recommend PMA to every family!

Are you dealing with

Any of these troubles?

You’re struggling to find something to do with your kids that appeals to you, too.

Your kids spend too much time inside and not enough outside getting exercise.

You worry that your kids lack self-esteem and want to improve your self-esteem, too.

A lot of parents struggle to find family-friendly activities to do with their children.

Try something new with your family!

They also worry that their kids don’t understand the importance of exercise and wonder if that’s because as parents, they don’t make time to work out in their own lives.

There aren’t many workouts that can be shared by adults and children. Cheering from the sidelines isn’t the same as doing something together.

Results and growth with every class!

Family martial arts classes offer families a way to spend quality time together and get their exercise, too. Everyone in the family learns at an appropriate level, but you’ll be learning the same basic skills. That means you can cheer one another on while also burning calories, relieving stress, and learning valuable lessons that apply to all areas of life.

Make Exercise a Family Priority

When you have a busy life that includes children, it can be hard to make time in your schedule for working out. Yet, as a parent, you know that the example you set is something that will influence your kids throughout their lives.

Family martial arts classes offer you the opportunity to kill two birds with stone. By attending classes with your kids, you’ll be showing them that you value fitness and exercise.

At the same time, you’ll be giving your kids a chance to let loose and have some fun. They won’t even be thinking about the fact that they’re exercising – and before you know it, exercise will be a habit for them and you.

Age-Appropriate Fun for Kids and Adults Alike

If your kids are even a few years apart in age, it can be impossible to find something they all want to do. Even choosing a movie or television show to watch requires boatloads of patience and diplomacy. Yet, family time is important.

One of the biggest benefits of studying the martial arts as a family is that it’s fun for everybody, kids and adults alike. Kicking, punching, and breaking boards are enjoyable activities at any age.

You might think of martial arts as an individual pursuit, but families who take classes together cheer each other on. The memories you build in class will last a lifetime!

Learning Discipline and Self-Control Can Help the Whole Family

Sometimes, getting your kids to play together can be a battle. The constant bickering is enough to wear any parent down.

At the same time, you may struggle with discipline and self-control in your life too. Studying the martial arts is great for your body, but it’s also good for your brain. As you work out, you and your kids will learn the five tenets of martial arts: courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, and indomitable spirit.

While you might learn about perseverance and self-control on the mat, the lessons don’t end there. Your kids will bring what they learn to school with them, you’ll bring it to work, and the entire family will bring it home.

Kids and Parents Improve Their Self-Esteem

Self-esteem plays an important role in how we move through life. A child who has good self-esteem is likely to perform well in school, to form healthy relationships, and to be successful in life.

Of course, a parent’s self-esteem has a direct impact on their kids. One of the most important benefits of studying the martial arts is that it teaches people of all ages to rely on themselves and their abilities.

The whole family can benefit from learning about self-reliance and confidence. Once you know your own worth – and your kids know theirs – the whole family will have a newfound positivity that will strengthen your relationships.

We have been joining the family class for over a year and we absolutely love it. The instructors offers a friendly environment with personalized focus for each child or adult to learn at its own pace while staying challenged. Attending the family class is something we look forward every week. From a dojo perspective, location is great, facility is comfortable and well kept.

FAQs

Will taking martial arts with me teach my kids that it’s okay to hit me at home?

No. In our classes, we emphasize courtesy and self-control. Kids learn that kicking and punching are appropriate in class, but we also make sure that they know that physical violence is not the right choice for conflict resolution.

I’m not in great shape. Can I still take martial arts classes with my family?

Yes! Our classes are perfect for people who haven’t been working out as well as people who have. We hire instructors who can work with you to help you build the exercise habit for your entire family regardless of what your current fitness level is.

Can studying the martial arts help my kids learn to defend themselves?

Absolutely. In fact, martial arts moves are ideal for self-defense because they teach kids (and adults) to leverage their opponent’s body weight to defend themselves.

Can studying martial arts as a family help my kids get along better?

Yes. Families who take martial arts classes together get a chance to spend quality time as a family unit. They learn to respect one another’s abilities, persevere when things don’t go their way, and value their family members.

Are family martial arts classes appropriate for kids or parents with physical disabilities?

Yes. Our instructors can modify their instruction to suit students of every ability level. If you have concerns about a specific disability or challenge, just let us know and we’ll be happy to help out.

More Benefits

Family martial arts classes are a great way for parents and kids to manage stress and anxiety.

Martial arts moves can help anybody learn how to defend themselves if the need arises.

Studying the martial arts can improve your physical coordination – something that’s especially important for young children.

Kids who study the martial arts are less likely to be involved in bullying than kids who don’t.
