PRO Martial Arts and Kara, Damien, and David have been life changing for our son!! He has learned so much in all areas of his life from them! He had sensory challenges and karate has definitely helped with this. Karate used so many muscle groups that help give extra stimulation. His confidence and resilience are amazing due to this. He is rewarded for hard work and at 8 understands that if you work hard you can accomplish anything. These are life lessons we couldn't have taught him alone! In a different sport he was practicing up a level at a very hard practice. He said his muscles hurt so bad but he said I don't give up on things anymore! What an amazing quality!!! The instructors are amazing, resourceful, and like family! They figured out streaming karate classes on Zoom within a few days of quarantine! They SAVED us!!! Our son did 6 classes a week during quarantine on Zoom. This gave him exercise, normalcy, a chance to see others- it was AMAZING!!! I can't say enough how amazing our experience has been, I would recommend PMA to ANYONE!!!!
I continue to be so grateful for the help and guidance Pro Martial Arts has helped my son grow into who he is today. He has been a student since 3rd grade and is now a 10th grader working on his 2nd degree Blackbelt. We are especially thankful for the character education he has received from being a part of this awesome program!
Yes, They have been a key part of my son growth with using manners and helping around the house even when not asked to. He loves going to class and he is always practicing kicks and blocks around the house. If you are thinking about putting you kids in this program then the look is over they are great with bringing discipline to kids everyday life even outside of the dojo.
I was looking forward a martial arts program after my daughter decided to take a break from high school sports and found an amazing place at PMA. Kara guided us through the teen program details which was a great fit for her- the location, the multitude of time options and the chance to meet new friends while gaining strength and confidence. Every question answered and went the extra mile to make her feel comfortable with encouragement along the way. Great option for teens looking to build discipline and self esteem. Best decision for her!!!
Our son had great success in the little rhinos program developing discipline and focus.
We started at PRO Martial Arts-Kenwood in the fall of 2020. Our son started in their Little Rhinos program. He loved coming so much that his older brother joined him when he moved to the white belt classes. It's such a great place--the instructors are awesome and easy to communicate with. I would highly recommend PRO Martial Arts to anyone looking for an activity for their children. It's teaching them hard work, discipline and patience. They also love working towards their new belts.
We started this as a 2 week special and have been apart of the PMA family for 4 months now. This has been the most positive experience for my son and our family. They really take the time to get to know each family and the child. Landon has had a major improvement in his manners, positive thinking and his helpfulness around the house. Thank you so much PMA for being such an amazing gift to us!
I saw the sign for Master Hannah’s Pro Martial Arts studio one day, and decided to finally realise my dream of learning karate. I’d wanted to since seeing Karate Kid all those years ago when I was 10. I reached out via the website and had an instant response. I was told I could do a two week trial and get a free uniform. What was there to lose?? I remember nervously going for my first class. Looking around, I saw everyone was fit and flexible, and I was recovering from two years of no real exercise due to a heart condition. “I don’t belong here” was my thought for all of three seconds before Ms Kara came out and made me feel exactly like I did belong. She helped me get my uniform on, taught me patiently how to tie my belt etc, and from the second I clumsily tried my first kick, she and Master Damien had nothing but encouraging words. I left that class certain of two things; this was the place for me, and I was definitely signing up. What made me return to this Dojo was simple. When I walked away that day, I remember thinking how Master Damien and Ms Kara made me feel human, like I belonged, like there was absolutely nothing I couldn’t do or learn. They are both so kind, patient, understanding, and whenever you need to reach out, they are responsive and helpful. Never once have I felt silly or like I couldn’t do the workouts. Patience and grace and kindness do go such a long way. I am from NYC where classes like theirs cost the same PER HOUR as these ones do for a whole month. I have trained in places that made me feel less than, that looked at me like I was a beginner at exercising and working out, that treated me patronisingly when I said I used to run, box, swim, cycle every day - all because of how I looked. From the minute I walked in to Master Hannah’s Dojo, I knew it would be different. Joining was the best decision I have ever made, and I am proud to call myself a student. I enjoy every class, all the instructors are amazing, and every student there is treated with the utmost respect. I could never recommend them highly enough.
My son cries when he has to play ball sports. He’s skinny, introverted, and a couch potato. I’ve been looking for something that would get him moving without tears! This was everything I wanted for my 7 yrs old and more! He absolutely loves it and looks forward to going! It’s teaching him respect, discipline, self-defense and so much more!
We have been a part of Master Hannah's Pro Martial Arts for almost a year now. We have loved every minute! Our son is excited to go to class, to learn new skills and to reach the goals associated with belt testing. The program teaches kids about respect and self-discipline. Master Hannah is very easy to communicate with, as is the rest off the team! We couldn't be happier with Master Hannah's Pro Martial Arts! 10/10!
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".
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!
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.
We've had such a great experience here. My son has thrived, and it's so fun to watch!
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!
Mr. Damian and Miss Kara do an amazing job with the kids! We would highly recommend PMA for anyone who is looking for a great experience for their kids.
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!
