Kids love classes at Professional Martial Arts Academy because they're unbelievably fun (but parents love them because they build benefits for life!)
Everything we do is intentionally structured based on our extensive experience. Kids at Professional Martial Arts Academy actually like the structure, because it makes them feel safe and cared for. They can trust deep down that they're safe to explore and challenge themselves.
We take kids’ emotions seriously. The culture at Professional Martial Arts Academy is one of inclusion - no cliques, no cool kids club, no unkind actions or attitudes. Kids love it because they always feel like they belong!
It's so much fun! At Professional Martial Arts Academy, we know that getting your child out of the house, in the car, and across town to an activity is a big deal. We guarantee that when they leave, it will have been 100% worth it, every time!

We send regular anonymous surveys to our members in our program. Here's a sample of the real feedback we get regularly:
Both my kids have been attending Professional Martial Arts - Plaistow for the past year. We've moved several times, and have experienced different dojos around New England. Both my kids are black belts in karate, and all I can say is Professor Rick Hawn is the real deal. Southern NH is lucky to have a world class Martial Artist share his knowledge with the next generation. Not only is Professor Rick a Judo Olympian and professional MMA Champion, he is an all around nice guy. He works really well with students of all ages. As one example of how he goes above and beyond, on his days off Professor Rick has attended my daughters wresting matches "just because" We drive 45 minuets to attend the best martial arts academy in the area, and PMA is well worth the trip!
Joining the PMA family was the best decision we ever made. My daughter has been doing Karate for 2 years. After falling in love with it, she decided to try jiujitsu and has been doing that for almost a year. Sensei Rick is amazing. Not only is he incredibly skilled and qualified to teach, he is absolutely wonderful with the kids, especially the young ones. There has been a complete change in my daughter since she found the haven that is PMA. She's more respectful of others, and her self confidence has shot through the roof. These were the main reasons we wanted to take her to martial arts, but now she is really getting into the technique and wants to excel as a martial artist. It's amazing watching her grow, as a person and an athlete, and I have Sensei Rick and PMA to thank.
Professional Martial Arts is the favorite choice of Plaistow families for their childrens' and teens' physical, mental and emotional development Plus there’s no better facility for adults to improve their physical health and mental wellness. Schedule a trial today!
