Derry Martial Arts

Get Fit. Be Strong. Feel Empowered.

About Our School

Welcome to the PMA family!

100% of our focus is on training kids to be more confident productive members of society.

Our Martial Arts school in Derry might just seem like a place to get your kids fit and learn self-defense... but to us it’s so much more. When your kids train with us, they’ll experience a place where they fit in, no matter what your kid’s background or what fitness level they are. They’ll also learn powerful age specific Martial Arts Skillz, discover ways to keep safe, and learn secret tips that were once known only to elite martial artists on how to stay in amazing focus.

They’ll get into one of the best confidence building programs in their life, learn Super-Cool Ninja Self-Defense moves, and experience changes that absolutely and completely change the lives of our new and existing students. Your kids will get stronger with their newfound ninja strength, but the subtle changes of our students’ minds are what amaze us the most.

Not only will we help your kids get next level discipline, but here are a few of the more subtle changes our students experience from martial arts training, as well.

#1 Skyrocketing Self-Confidence

Something amazing happens when you start to move your body and bring physical fitness into your life...it creates a foundation. A foundation for more happiness, a sense of accomplishment, and a BIG BOOST in confidence! 

You’ll have a group of passionate instructors and classmates right there ready to support you as you push past your limits and strive to reach your martial arts and fitness goals. 

As you progress through class, you will quickly realize how amazing and capable you already are. Knowing that makes you feel more confident and sure of yourself and increases your ability to handle other life challenges that come your way.

Both kids and adults experience this and it’s one of the most rewarding things to see as a teacher. Kids – especially shy and quiet ones - blossom into superb leaders in the classroom, while adults tackle everyday tasks with more energy and a "can do" attitude. 

#2 Spot on Focus

Our program is demanding at times and requires your full attention. As you concentrate hard on listening to the instructor, then performing what they taught you, you start to build important links in your brain that improve your ability to focus better and for longer periods of time. 

What’s great is that this intense concentration naturally pours into all other areas of your life too.

Students report being able to not only concentrate better at work, but they’re able to clear their mind at the end of the day a lot more easily.

#3 Kid Kind of Fitness

So many of our kids have become Dopamine addicts because of all the screen time they get and an excellent way to help balance the effect of screen time is from the endorphins we get from exercise.

No matter what your kid’s starting level is, each one of our students improves from the state they were in when they took their first class. From total beginner to elite athletes and everything in between, we strive to make sure each class is loaded with fun and challenging exercise that work the entire body.

They will be so determined on performing techniques that some of the world’s top performing martial artists do, and having so much fun, that before you know it, the class is over, and not only did they learn powerful martial arts...

... but they also got a great workout. Being physically fit boosts energy, inner and outer strength, and self-esteem, as well as the most important aspect of fitness… confidence.

#4 Circle of Friends

Even if you’re an introvert, our kickboxing classes seem to make shy and quiet people come alive and shine. We provide a safe, non-intimidating environment where we all want each other to succeed. We don’t have people trying to outdo each other or staring at you if you don’t look a certain way. 

Everyone is super friendly and supportive. Making friends with the other members is effortless, which then makes our fitness-minded family thrive.

We provide an environment that fosters friendship, motivation and success. It's something quite empowering to see and feel.

#5 Loads of Fun

Working out and having fun? Yup! Our classes are a blast! Martial arts is a way of life for us and we want you to have a prosperous life too. We work hard, but we play hard too.

Did you know that the average adult laughs only about 20 times per day? Our classes strive to make you a high achiever in every way - including your mental well-being.

Laughing and smiling are part of every class here, as are high fives and TONS of support.

Make your fitness dreams come true while learning how to empower yourself and achieve greater success. 

You need us and we need you. Together we’re a dynamic force of fitness power to change lives and bring back JOY in taking charge of your life. Because of this…

Muay Thai's roots are said to come from ancient Thai kickboxing that's been passed down from generation to generation. In the late 1800s and early 1900s the martial art underwent dramatic change with Thailand's exposure to British boxing.

Witness the speed and power of the British, they merged those techniques with their own to form the powerful art we know as Muay Thai and teach in every one of our Derry Muay Thai classes.
