Our son has been a student at Proven Martials Arts (PMA) for over 5 years. He started when he was 5 years old and has earned his 2nd Degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do (TKD) and is currently working on achieving both his 3rd Degree Black Belt and his White-Yellow Belt in Jiu-Jitsu.
The TKD program stresses discipline, respect, and self-confidence. The Gracie Bullyproof Jiu-Jitsu classes are flat-out fun, while also teaching how to defeat a bully without ever throwing a punch. The Bullyproof program also teaches many core values like health, respect & citizenship, to name a few.
As parents, our greatest joy is the sense of accomplishment Proven Martial Arts has given to our children; our daughter, a 3rd degree black belt and our son, a first degree black belt, in Taekwondo. Mr. Alex Puzza, and each and every one of his instructors, are compassionate and committed to teaching our children Taekwondo, while instilling in them self-discipline, strength, control, friendship, respect, courage, and loyalty. We feel confident in saying Proven Martial Arts is the best there is in the Hudson Valley!
