PMA Round Rock has been a great experience for my daughter and family as a whole. The teachers are fantastic and take their role in the development of the child very seriously. My daughter has been learning and progressing at a pace that best suits her and is never rushed. Martial arts techniques are taught and re-taught with a lot of patience until the students get it. There is also equal importance given to other aspects of the students’ growth - discipline at home, being on top of school work, being kind and such. They definitely focus on the overall growth of the child which I love! I highly recommend the school and the teachers! You cannot go wrong with PMA!

Never been to this location, so I won’t speak to the Oak Ridge facility. However, my daughter is a second degree black belt who has trained at the Premier Maryville location. That’s where I was able to meet the Oak Ridge instructor, Chris Puckett, and the rest of the Puckett family as he assisted in her training. I can tell you this about Mr. Chris. If you want somebody who will be dedicated to giving your child their all, if you want a family to embrace your family and if you want somebody who’s overcome life obstacles in ways that will inspire your child, sign up for classes at Premier Oak Ridge. You won’t find a more dedicated instructor.

Amazing place for kids! They have helped my son with his discipline, confidence and focus. The hours work with almost any schedule and the manager is very fair, all you have to do is communicate with him. Recommend it to anyone! They do adult classes as well.
