Meet Matt Perrins
Matt Perrins began martial arts in 1985, at the age of 13, with two goals in mind. Matt hoped his martial arts training would allow him to become a World Champion by 25 and to instruct the sport as a profession.
He reached those goals, becoming a World Champion at 28 years old, and he’s owned a martial arts school since 1996. Moving forward, Matt’s goal is to help others accomplish their goals through the benefit of training in the martial arts.

Meet Adriana Maroleanu
I am very passionate about keeping fit and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I have played numerous sports growing up, but karate has had the most influence on all aspects of my life. I started my martial arts journey in 2010, whereby throughout the 7 years of training, I have become more confident, focused, motivated and increased my physical, as well as mental strength, helping me surpass ongoing challenges. Karate, along with the cardio kickboxing classes have ultimately made me a stronger individual, therefore I intend on giving others the ability to reach their full potential.

Whether your ambitions are geared toward competition or are just eager to learn martial arts, PMA is an extremely welcoming environment and we are driven to help achieve your individual goals.
