“I absolutely love PKMA! We have our 7 & 9 year old enrolled in classes 2x weekly, and will soon be enrolling our youngest in Little Lions. I am so impressed by the dedication our older two children have displayed over the last several months, when at first they were “iffy” with starting the program.”

-Caroline E.

“My son has been attending Peace Keeper Martial Arts for more than a year now and it is amazing the difference in him. He has matured and gained strength and self discipline. Sensai James and Sensai Alicia have an awesome connection with their students.”

-Iman H.

“I love the sense of community you get right of the bat. I like that they’re tough but loving and silly but still with high expectations. I love that respect is earned effortlessly both ways. After only 3 of 4 classes I’ve noticed an improvement in my children at home and they LOVE the nights we have class. We plan on bring around for a while!”

We are located in San Antonio, Texas on Tezel Rd. Our history began in New Orleans but when Katrina hit, we packed up everything we had and relocated to San Antonio and the rest is history. Since opening a Martial Arts school in San Antonio, we have been blessed by the love of the community and only hope that we can give back as much as we’ve received.
