The participation in martial arts at Pallen’s Martial Arts has really helped both my kids. I see more confidence not only in karate class, but also in their schooling and other extra-curricular activities….not only are the kids able to perform what they learned, but it helps them to use skills they have learned in class in their everyday lives; speaking, practice, participation in various activities. – Michelle Castro
The benefits of karate are endless. The older Anthony gets the more he takes from it. Not only physical and mental, but the confidence it brings him in all he does. Thank you. –Colleen Lynch
Everyone can see how much of yourself you put into the school, " GIVING" everyone the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful and positive environment you and Felipa have created. Thank you for sharing your life and philosophy. You have touched so many lives in more ways than you know. Stay cool Professor (CuZ)...... Robert Magtibay July 9, 2010
'KARATE CHANGED MY LIFE' One of those "right decisions" was taking a martial arts class -- something which literally changed her life."Karate saved my life," she says. "It all stopped the day I broke two boards with a kick." Jillian Michaels, "The Biggest Loser" star trainer is profiled in June’s Redbook magazine. She describes how martial arts changed her life and how breaking two boards was literally a break-through in confidence.
This is not just a business but a way of life for them. Professor Jordan Pallen and Felipa Ortiz-Pallen are my kindred spirits. My family and I have much love and respect for them as well as for the founder of their system, Grandmaster Max Pallen, Sr.
P.S. Felipa also teaches an awesome cardio-kickboxing class which I highly recommend. You will feel great after training with her! -
