In addition to his daily school obligations, Derek has been involved in many other activities including soccer, swimming, music, and TaeKwonDo. He continues to impress us with his focus, positive attitude, patience and “no fear” attitude. We believe he has tuned these qualities while attending TaeKwonDo as we can see them displayed in his daily life. We cannot be happier to see him excelling at all he attempts and believe he has earned the opportunity to test for his next belt.
My son loves Tae Kwon Do class. He took karate at another school and they did not cater to the younger kids like your school does. At this age, 6, it is important to make the class fun and reward them for their hard work and accomplishments. I feel your school does a great job with this. We are very happy at PAMA.
I love the attention they give to every student and the overall positive atmosphere.
Master Turnquist is a huge asset to this school. Master Natale, Ms. Theresa, and Ms. Jan are great instructors who demand respect, show respect, and hold PAMA to the integrity that should be displayed.
We work hard and play hard. Classes are fun, a constant challenge to improve myself, and good exercise. It’s the people.
I have watched PAMA change a lot over the last five years. I feel like it is a family. Most importantly, PAMA makes me feel like part of the family. I love the people I train with. I really enjoy the activities that encourage community and relationships with other class members and instructors. I have attended classes at over 10 different schools in my lifetime, and PAMA is definitely the most family and community focused. The facilities are attractive, with large exercise areas and great equipment. Master Luft, Master Turnquist, and Mr. LeMere genuinely care about the students.
I love Master Turnquist and Mr. LeMere. They are both great with the kids. Actually, all the staff of PAMA are great. Each bringing something great to the table.
The family culture is Fun. I also like that PAMA is Internationally recognized.
My daughter has been a great job in karate. Her focus and ability to pay attention in class has really improved.
Lehan started Tae Kwon Do on September 20th and has loved learning a new sport. He is motivated to try his best, and he has more pride in himself when he succeeds. We are proud that not only is Lehan learning new skills from Mr. Andrew each week, but his focus and listening has improved too.
Ramsey has become a better big brother and a great citizen.
Kate is so excited each time she gets to class. She is an eager but respectful student in class and willing to not only learn new things but practice improving her existing forms and pad drills. She shows courage and the best heart!
Nithika is a driven kind and passionate student. She continually pushes herself to be at he top of her class academically and seeks to build strong relationships with her peers and her teachers. Nithika volunteers and participates in class as much as possible. She is a wonderful asset to out class culture and community. I have only known Nithika this past year, however she has proved her strong leadership skills time and again in class. She takes charge of group discussions, helps others get back on tasks, and encourages everyone to be their best selves. Nithika strives for excellence in everything she does. As a result of her wonderful leadership skills, I would highly recommend her for any accolade.
Zander had been improving on his Tae Kwon Do these last several weeks with skill, concentration, and maturity. He has been helpful and more respectful at home. Zander is the youngest of 5 and I often hear at home “Please stop I don’t like that!” which is much better than yelling and screaming – he is more confident with his voice.
Jack has been excited to come to classes every week and has been eager to learn all about Tae Kwon Do.
Over the past few months Maggie has worked hard to complete her orange belt. She is showing so much bravery tonight! We are so proud!
Isabel is an eager, respectful, and focused student. She loves learning new skills but equally loves refining and improving her best of the existing skills including her pad drills and kicks and forms. She is also patient in helping her sister and mom practice their Tae Kwon Do skills as well.
Noah has continued to show increased focus, commitment, and dedication, at home, school, and Tae Kwon Do.
Dylan sets goal for himself and works hard to achieve them. He has grown so much as a learner! Dylan is a strong leader in out classroom and a great role model for his peers. He always shows kindness towards others and has a positive attitude toward learning. Dylan consistently volunteers to help me and others in the class. For example, at the end of the day he organizes the room and makes sure everyone has their mail belongings, etc. He is respectful, responsible, and courteous to all his teachers.
Brandon has been working diligently to master the various items he has learned in Tae Kwon Do over the last couple years in order to achieve CDB2. He’s been more helpful around the house, he listening skills are improving and he been more generous with giving grace to others.
Ian has been practicing at home. He has been exercising and trying to make a perfect pushup. He really enjoys karate and hope to get his black belt by end of next year.
Dru has been working really hard to juggle Taekwondo and competitive dance. She has shown perseverance with private lessons and practicing in her free time. We are proud of her resilience!
Savannah has shown true Taekwondo spirit by keeping her grades up, attending practices as well as participation in basketball at school. She transferred into 6th grade this year and all responsibility has increased. She has taken the challenge and prospered. We couldn’t be more proud. She is proud to be part of the CAMA family.
Milan is deserving because he hot only has been working hard at practice, he has been outstanding at school. Milan received an award this past month for being empathetic to another student in his class. He is always a good friend and has integrity. We are very proud of the young man he is becoming. He is proud to be part of the CAMA family and takes has taekwondo career seriously!
As we sat watching the Sunday class, I could almost cry from gratitude and my love of your school. Looking around the room I saw so much to be grateful for and that you all should be proud of. I see a team of instructors of all ages working together cooperatively. Students of all different races and backgrounds. The shy ones, the outgoing ones. The kids with natural athletic ability and the ones who have to work at it. Beginners who are met where they’re at and experienced students who help the new ones. I see leadership skills being developed, confidence instilled, respect and self-discipline being taught. This is a place where people of all colors, shapes, sizes, abilities and personalities can come to learn, grow and develop life skills. I love watching the youngest instructors learning how to lead; seeing the teenage instructors grow in their knowledge and confidence as they share what they know; and the adult instructors bringing all of them up with encouragement and respect. Each time I have approached your leaders with feedback they have been receptive and responsive. The school you have created is remarkable and we are grateful to be part of it. Thank you for all you do!
