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.

Quick Tips on Hygiene

As a student in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu there are a few things that we want to keep in mind while we train. We always want to be considerate of our training partners because without partners we can’t really train Jiu-Jitsu. Here are some quick tips to keep in mind:

Keep gi clean

Wash your gi

Tip 1: Wash your gi and rash guards after every class, even if you barely sweat, it is a necessary thing to do. You could even wash your belt as well. If your a Muay Thai Student make sure to wash your hand wraps. Also making sure to wipe down your gear after every class.

How to keep Muay Thai Hand Wraps clean

Wash hand wraps

 

Hygiene is very important. We train in a communal atmosphere. We do our part as far as keeping the facility clean. Like mopping the mats and wiping down equipment. Then you guys have to do your part in keeping your self and your things clean.

Other things to keep in mind are:

Tip 2: Never wear shoes on the mat. And never walk around the Academy or outside in your bare feet.

Keeps Nails trimmed

Trim Nails

Tip 3: Keep fingernails and toenails short. Nobody wants to be marked by a toenail! Ugh!

Tip 4: Take a shower. Make sure this is the first thing you do when you get home. If you need to go to work after training, remember, the Academy has a shower for your use.

Tip 5: If you notice a skin infection, let us know. So that we can be aware of it. We may want you to take a day off of training or maybe see a doctor. These are few and far between but if you do happen to notice something like that be mindful and considerate of other people.

Tip 6: Take off any jewelry that you may have on and pull back long hair.

These are some simple tips to keep in mind while you train. Remember, we need our partners to help us train in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and in Muay Thai. Without them it’s impossible. So let’s  have consideration for our training partners.
