Welcome to Petaluma Academy of Martial Arts
PAMA is a traditional Martial Arts School for the whole family.
KENPO KARATE, the original mixed martial art, for its realistic
self-defense and personalized training through private lessons
LATOSA ESCRIMA, for its weapons training & power concepts.
TAI CHI, for its health and healing aspects.
Our Kenpo Program offers a combination of
*Katas & Techniques
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 themself againt adults.
