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.

Step by Step Instructions to Tying your Belt Like a Pro

Learning to tie your belt is often a challenge, like learning to tie your shoes. However, with practice it becomes easier and easier. Pretty soon you’ll tie your belt like a pro. See below the step by step instructions with pictures to help you.

Step #1: Hold your belt at the half way point. A way to tell is if both ends of your belt touch the floor at the same time. Next cross the right side of the gi in first then the left side to close.

Step #2: Next, you’ll take the middle of the belt and place it just below your belly button around your waist. You’ll wrap once so that your belt crosses in the back.

Step #3: The belt that’s in your right hand is going to cross over top of the other two. Then from here you’ll just pull it underneath and behind those two belts. Then pull it out and snug it up.

Step #4: Now, you’ll take the belt in the left hand and go over the right one. This will make a hole, you’ll pull the belt up through that hole.
