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.

How Pendergrass Academy of Martial Arts is Preparing For Coronavirus & COVID19

*** Updated 10:00 pm on Thursday, March 12th, 2020***

The team at Pendergrass Academy is committed to the health and safety of our Members.

We will use this page (as well as communicate via our Facebook Group and Page and E-Mail) to keep you posted.

We are taking this 1 day at a time as this is an unprecedented event that is occurring.

PREVENTATIVE MEASURES

Our Team is being very proactive in taking steps towards the health of our students and hygiene in our gym. 

We have hand sanitizer readily available at the academy and antibacterial hand soap in the bathrooms. 

We regularly clean our mats with commercial-grade cleaner and have increased the number of sessions of mat cleanings per day and have also increased deep cleaning sessions per week for the time being.  We have also invested in a local company (Cintas) to provide us weekly with the best possibly cleaning supplies and equipment. 

We are urging all students, parents and siblings to STAY HOME if you feel sick, even if the symptoms are not consistent with the coronavirus or flu.  This will help the spreading of any and all illnesses.  This is our policy year-round, but we are asking everyone to be especially vigilant during this time.  

ONLINE CLASSES

For those who are unable to attend class due to illness or other risk factors, we do have the technology in place to allow for realtime at-home participation, including interaction from your kids’ favorite instructors.

Online Classes will begin next week.

Our entire monthly martial arts curriculum is also already available for members on our PAMA App.

GOOD FRIDAY DAY CAMP

As of today, we are still running Good Friday Day Camp.

We love our community and we love the families who live here. We are not going to let this have negative effect on your ability to go to work and make a living.

We will have limited spaces in these camps and they will be available for children ages 5-12 who are healthy and symptom free. (Touch-free temperature scans on student’s foreheads will be conducted Friday when they arrive and students must be 98.9 degrees or lower.)

If you need a safe, clean, and healthy environment for your child, as of this time, we are fully prepared to stay open and offer full-day camps from 7:00am-5:30pm if schools shut down. 

FREEZING YOUR PROGRAM

As a courtesy to our members, anytime you miss more than 4 weeks of training, we have always added that missed time to the end of your Program.

If you foresee yourself being out for more than 4 weeks, please send us an e-mail requesting a freeze form and we will add your missed time to the end of your Program.

Your monthly payment will still be processed – but you won’t lose your time.

CDC PREVENTION STEPS

We are also asking our students to follow the CDC’s prevention steps below to stop the spreading of illnesses.  Specifically:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask (not recommended- see website)
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty. 

You can find these guidelines and more information here:

LEADERS DON’T PANIC, THEY PREPARE

While we recognize the seriousness of this virus, we also recognize that remaining physically fit is an important way to ensure a healthy immune system.

Further, we believe that in frightening times, it is important for kids to maintain as much consistency as possible, within reason.

Our goal is to employ practices that reduce risk while focusing on educating our students with empathy and compassion so they can balance their emotions with logic and information.

Your children are going to follow your lead.

Make sure it’s one to follow.

Thank you for your cooperation. 

We are hoping that everyone will do their part as we take every measure to keep our Academy a safe and clean environment.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
