Our mission is to help families build good humans.
We focus on developing fundamental character building traits needed in today’s society; respect, confidence, discipline, and focus. We prize honor, courage, discipline and integrity.
We value more from our students, and challenge them to reach for higher standards. “More” is exactly what they deliver—kinder, stronger, more responsible character traits emerge from students who are members of the Pallen’s tribe.
Pallen students have a reputation for overcoming challenges on the mat and at home, and for building thriving friendships built on integrity, trust, and respect.
We have fun.
We strive to create a disciplined and structured environment where everyone has a chance to excel. We constantly enhance our unique method of teaching martial arts with exciting games and themed based classes without ever compromising the integrity and tradition of martial arts.
We thrive together.
We have been working with families since 1968 to develop the martial arts methods that focus on body and mind in all the best ways. Today, parents can work out at our state-of-the-art gym, and watch their kids classes on video monitors. We welcome families that work out together. You are not just joining a bay area martial arts institution with a unique and successful methodology, you are joining with other families in a mission to build a thoughtful community. Our legacy is built on the principle that a community that strives together, thrives together.
