What Others Are Saying About Us

Our son has being going to Pendo Karate for 9 years and this program has made an incredible impact on his life. The teachers and students have become like family to him and he is thriving. In regards to the instructors, they are everything you could hope for: patient, kind, tough, high energy, encouraging and enthusiastic. They seem to have mastered the balance of pushing each student to reach their own individual potential in a supportive but professional environment.

Regina McAllen

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

Amazing, friendly and dedicated staff. Our 4yo son has been attending for several months and he loves his class and his instructors. Since starting his classes his focus and ability to follow instructions/rules has noticeably improved. Highly recommended!

Pendo Karate Fights For

The Great Kindness Challenge

The Great Kindness Challenge is the week of January 27th and is dedicated to creating a culture of kindness in communities nationwide. Pendo Karate is proudly participating in this proactive, positive bullying prevention initiative.

This week, classes will be receiving a checklist of kind acts. We encourage your child to complete the checklist throughout the week to show the world that kindness matters. And to show how king Pendo students can be, the following week, we will reflect on our experiences and display the completed checklists.

As a part of the Great Kindness Challenge, our unifying service project will be collecting children’s art supplies for 180 Turning Lives Around’s Amanda’s Easel Program. This is a great opportunity for our students to respond to the needs of others, which teaches empathy and compassion. We are collecting art supplies from January 27 to February 14.

Amanda’s Easel Program is looking for items such as:

  • Gift cards for art supplies: Michael’s, AC Moore, Hobby Lobby, Target
  • Acrylic Craft paint such as Apple Barrel (all colors, small 4oz bottles)
  • Crayola Model Magic (all colors)
  • Polymer Clay (FIMO or SCULPTY)
  • Washi Tape
  • Markers and Sharpies, Colored Pencils, Watercolor Pencils
  • Blank Journals
  • Canvas Boards
  • Matting/Framing materials for children’s art
  • Art Kits (for program graduate)

Got Pain?

The other night, I watched a TV commercial for people with arthritis, sciatica, and spinal stenosis…
…people just like me!
The ad was motivating us to use minimal surgeries to relieve our chronic body pains…
