    FREE Class

PAMA Instructors

Great Instructors

Between Parker Academy of Martial Arts (PAMA) and its sister school UMAC (United Martial Arts Center), we have over 40 certified instructors that are Black Belts. Our classes are routinely taught by 2 or more black belts. Unlike other schools, here you are taught by the best!

Programs for All Ages

Parker Academy of Martial Arts incorporates a combination of techniques and principles from a variety of Martial Arts styles including Tae Kwon Do, Muay Thai Kickboxing, Krav Maga, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Hapkido, and weapons styles which provide our students with a well-balanced, practical based self-defense system.

Best Facilities

Parker Academy of Martial Arts operates classes inside a 6,000 square-foot training center and is equipped to handle multi-school tournaments and large special events, such as Halloween parties and special seminars.

FAST Defense

PAMA frequently has FAST Defense seminars for kids 14 and younger. FAST stands for Fear Adrenaline Stress Training. It’s a great seminar for ANYONE who wants to give their child the gift of self-defense. You do NOT need to be a current student to participate!!! You will run through simulations of real life situations, talk about Bully Defense and keeping yourself safe in the world.

Great Videos to Watch
