What Others Are Saying About Us

We have nothing but positive things to say about Pendo Karate. Our son has the best time there and is learning so much!

Mrs. Mather

The benefits of karate training go far beyond the physical aspect. We see how it has affected our sons in all facets of their lives; improved school performance, better confidence, solidifying their relationship with each other. We couldnt be more pleased.

Matthew MacCarrick, M.D.

My daughter and husband both attend classes at Pendo. The teachers are always professional and focus on building not only skill but confidence and respect for not only the students but others.

Mrs. Kovacs

My kids look forward to Karate each week. They have gained confidence from it. I can’t say enough good things about all the instructors and the facility.
