I highly recommend Premier martial arts. Mr. Malone and Mr. Kevin are just the perfect Duo. I couldn’t be more happy my son has been there for quite a few months now and what a difference in his behavior and discipline. Truly recommend.

If you thought PMA Morrisville was just for the kids, think again! It is an absolutely great place to bring your child or teenager to help build self confidence, focus, agility, and kindness, and learn how to defend themselves if/whenever a situation may present itself. They teach the students self-discipline and knowing how to handle and deal with their own emotions and others’ emotions and how to interact and treat themselves and others with grace. The real gem is the adult kickboxing class!! It is the real deal!! Come in there ready to give some sweat equity! Mr. Malone is patient, kind, motivating, and can help you push yourself in ways you never thought you could. We went over self defense tactics, how to be practical and use your head if a situation arises and how to be confident no matter our fitness levels. He’s a very methodical, good and experienced teacher, coach, and mentor. You have to come and experience it. You won’t be disappointed!
