Our twin girls have been coming to PAMA for a little over 2 years and still look forward to coming to class. Family friendly, locally-owned and operated. Instructor/owners are personable, knowledgeable and committed to providing quality instruction. Assistant instructors are dedicated and provide excellent support. I would highly recommend PAMA to parents who wish to pursue martial arts training for their children.

Pendergrass Academy is by far one of the best things that has happened to my children and I am now a student of PAMA you need to come give it a try it's a decision I promise you won't regret. The Academy is not just a place to study but a family. The staff is the best in the Business.

This is a great school. My oldest son has gained so much confidence in the 5 years he been coming here. My youngest has been enrolled for a few months and is having as much fun as his older brother. I became tired of watching them have all the fun so I joined too. Great kids program, great adult program and awesome instructors.

My husband and I both train here. My husband has trained here for years. I started with Muay Thai this past year and have just started jiu jitsu. All the teachers and staff here are great and the students are very welcoming. I could not say enough nice things about Pendergrass! Highly recommend!!!

Rob hosted a Beginning Jiu Jitsu class for me and 11 of my friends. He gave a great overview of jiu jitsu and we all had a blast on the mat. He was very nice, humble, and well paced though out the training. He even stayed later since we started a little late because of late arrivals. The facility is nice and it is great that they offer Muay Thai also. I think I am going to sign up and also sign up my kids. Thank you Rob for an awesome birthday. It was exactly what I wanted.

This is a wonderful program. All three of our sons have been a part of Pendergrass Academy for many years. It has taught them so much more than martial arts. We are grateful to be a part of this fantastic family business.

5 Reasons you Should Start Training BJJ and Muay Thai in the New Year!

5 Reasons you Should Start Training BJJ and Muay Thai in the New Year!
If you’re looking to improve your life for the next 365 days and beyond, you could make a few vague resolutions that you may or may not stick to… or you could sign up for Jiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai classes and accomplish all of your New Year’s goals every time you show up to train.
▶️ If you’ve been asking yourself if now is the time to take that first step and that first roll towards a healthier and happier life, here’s why you should absolutely sign up for BJJ and Muay Thai classes in the new year:
1. YOU’LL LOOK BETTER!
Think you have to get in shape to do Jiu-Jitsu or Muay Thai? Think again. Both are a great cardio and strength workouts; and whether you’re a couch potato or you’re already in decent shape, your physique is going to change for the better.
▶️ You’ll probably start noticing changes whether or not you improve your diet, but chances are you’ll soon realize that eating healthier helps you feel better while you train.
▶️ It’s only a matter of time before the pounds start melting off and reveal a healthier (and sexier) version of you.
2. YOU’LL FEEL BETTER!
▶️ It’s no secret thatJiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai are not only great for your physical health, but also for your mental health. Ask just about anyone who trains, and they’ll tell you that their time on the mat is like a form of therapy.
▶️ Sure, you’ll probably leave class feeling a little (or a lot) beat up pretty often, but your mind and body will ultimately reap all kinds of benefits from your time choking out your friends.
3. YOU’LL LEARN SOMETHING NEW!
▶️ If you’re always hungry for knowledge, Jiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai are just what you need to satisfy your appetite. It’s just as much a mental sport as it is a physical one, and there’s truly an endless number of techniques that can be learned if you stick with it.
❗️Plus, the stuff you’ll learn is practical — there’s truly no downside to figuring out how to choke out a potential attacker with their own clothes.
4. YOU’LL MAKE NEW FRIENDS!
▶️ If one of the resolutions for the new year is to stop being such a hermit and be more social,Jiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai have you covered.
▶️ Even though they technically are combat sport, there’s something about armbars and punches that just brings people together. 😂
▶️ You and your teammates will put your lives in each other’s hands every time you train, and that kind of trust will build close friendships that you’ll maintain for years to come.
5. YOU’LL HAVE FUN!
▶️ Even though there will be plenty of bumps, bruises, and frustrations along the way, you’ll be surprised at just how quickly you’ll fall in love with artsJiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai.
▶️ It’s a martial art that has a way of making you smile through the pain, and once you see how much it affects so many aspects of your life, you’ll wonder how you ever went without it.
❗️Life is too short to not be enjoyed, and if you’ve been thinking that this is the year that you should finally start pursuing the happiness you deserve, put on that white belt and get started! 👊
