Pallen's Martial Arts
CJ R.- San Leandro
Our son who is 13 has been taking classes at Pallen's San Leandro & attending their summer camps for the past year. He is very motivated by them & is showing more commitment to his karate studies than the many other sports he has attempted. We appreciate the respect that he is learning in this disciplined environment, their attention to developing the 'whole person' (dojo, spirit, school & family), & their ability to constructively channel his energy. He has even started to take interest in tournament competitions & joining their black belt club. The Pallens' own children are wonderful role models for him and the Pallen parents support us in our job of parenting in a way that is nurturing, positive and safe. We expect to be with the Pallens for many fun years ahead....

I'm impressed how my son has grown in the Big Tiger program. He even won 1st place in his division in the Golden Gate International. We were blown away! And he's only 5!
He's learned through discipline, hard work and dedication can be fun and rewarding! He's fully engaged with the instructors and loves interacting with his fellow classmates weekly. As a parent, I'm also entertained watching his classes since the professor makes it fun for all ages! It's a family atmosphere and we love the Pallen crew!

Where do I start... Well , my husband has been a close friend to the family since he was a boy. We have two beautiful boys and the oldest one , Brandon was not so sure of what he wanted to do as an extra activity, so we brought him to at least 4 or 5 differant dojo's and many other sports and once he got to Pallen's Martial Arts that was the end of the line. Brandon had some questions and was nervious and Proffessor Jordan and staff made him feel confident and most of all a feeling of home. Our son has come so far and continues to grow as a young man , respectful, hard working , loving and thoughtful of others. The Pallens have watched him, not just physically but mentally and emotionally to make sure he continues to believe in himself and stay confident and encouraged him daily. Brandon is apart of the Leadership Team which teaches respect and what it is to be a leader in the arts and gives him the opportunity to work with the little Tigers and Brandon loves every minute, he really loves the kids .. He is on the Demo Team, again he loves it and enjoys al the music and dance and social aspect.. He has had an oportunity to learn so much and has now joined the Compitition Team which is a challange but he never gives up.. With this family there is endless possibilities for You and YOUR children , it goes beyond just a class , it a family , it a positve communty that brings so much excitement , we as a family love to be at the dojo, the environment is inviting and warm. This school of Pallen's Martial Arts has given our family such a fun outlook on life and cant wait for the next events.. I could just keep on going.... thanks for listening Christina Felis and family :)

We enrolled our two boys a few months ago into their Mixed Martial Arts Program. We have been very happy with the instructors and everyone at Pallen's. Jordon Pallen personally took the time to meet with our family one on one to make sure that all of our questions and needs were addressed from the very beginning. The classes are very structured and the instructors are great with the kids but at the same time consistent with the rules and discipline. We LOVE that everyone at Pallen's are family oriented and genuinely want all of their students to succeed. We have just enrolled our boys in their Summer Camp. We would highly recommend them!! I agree that this is not a business but a way of life for them.

Awesome place and just like home where my kids feel safe, happy and loved! It is a great training ground for success and happiness. I asked my kids what words come to mind when they hear about Pallen Martial Arts...My kids's response --> Dedication, Respect, Focus, Hard work, Courage, Discipline, Integrity and Perseverance! Their home away from home!!!!

I've been taking my niece here since November and next month I'll be signing up my son and his sister too. They are great and all the kids love them. Oh yeah and also I take a cardio kickboxing class there which I love :)

Pallen's Martial Arts in San Leandro has provided a wonderful experience for our 6 year old son, who has been training there for about 2 years. It has provided him with confidence he did not have, discipline, that reinforces our family values, and coordination skills, through a systematic, yet extremely fun learning environment. It is a very thoughtful program that further provides valuable life lessons for all ages. The exceptional instructors not only teach martial arts, they mentor their students, providing opportunities for them to assist during other classes. Our son aspires to someday be a student teacher and black belt, as he learns and watches his student teachers learning as well. We also recently joined their after school program, and it has been another exceptional experience. He is picked up from school, provided after school care, and receives his martial arts lesson - with our busy schedules it is a true blessing that he receives safe, structured, yet flexible and fun care, and his martial arts lessons, all extremely affordable. When we arrive to pick him up he does not want to leave! We highly recommend Pallen's Martial Arts

Highly recommend Pallen's Martial Arts in San Leandro. Professor Jordan & his wife Felipa are great with kids and parents. My son Daniel who is now 19 years old learned discipline and respect during his training with "Tuhan Jordan" at that time in his life and as a result will take that discipline and training in the US Army this coming Jan. 2010 to serve his country faithfully. Keep him in your prayers!

You have definitely touched our lives this year and I pray you can continue to teach Tayari. Right now he needs all the help he can get and we have already noticed a huge difference in him, just wish we were there to witness him in action! You and your family have been nothing but wonderful to us and for that I am grateful!
Chris Cruz-San Lorenzo
I just wanted to let both of you (Felipa and Professor) know how grateful I am to have both of you as our (mine and my kids) instructors – not only in your teachings of the martial arts, but also with day to day lessons of life. Your interactions with all of your students, the community and people in general exemplify the true meaning of being an instructor.

Being involved with the Pallens Martial Arts and its family has been the greatest highlight of not only my youth years in my mid-life as well. I love the Art and its principle. It gave me self-respect and confidence. It gave me the courage that anything was possible if you put your mind in to it. I will never forget the love and friendship the Pallen Family gave me. The Pallens Martial Arts is three-generation strong. More power to the Pallen "Breed".
Michelle Castro – San Lorenzo
The participation in martial arts at Pallen’s Martial Arts has really helped both my kids. I see more confidence not only in karate class, but also in their schooling and other extra-curricular activities….not only are the kids able to perform what they learned, but it helps them to use skills they have learned in class in their everyday lives; speaking, practice, participation in various activities.
Colleen Lynch – Oakland
The benefits of karate are endless. The older Anthony gets the more he takes from it. Not only physical and mental, but the confidence it brings him in all he does. Thank you.
Robert Magtibay – Pleasant Hill
Everyone can see how much of yourself you put into the school, " GIVING" everyone the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful and positive environment you and Felipa have created. Thank you for sharing your life and philosophy. You have touched so many lives in more ways than you know.

Congratulations! My two boys have been students at Pallen's for 4 yrs now. I'm so glad to be a part of the Pallen's Martial Arts family. Thank you Professor and Mrs. Pallen for all you do. My boys love you guys.
Christina Peters-San Leandroself and others, and work is so refined. No glitches in your system. Always feeling welcome. But most importantly, you make us all accountable for our children. We work together to make our children great citizens, students and individuals that work together for a common good, life and living. Thank you for all you do and continued success for all the years to come. We know you're teachings and classes will be around forever.
Venessa de Guzman-San Lorenzounches, it’s a way of life and these two live it to the fullest. Many have wonderful stories to share about the Pallen’s and I’m definitely one of them. To say the least, If it were not for Professor, Mrs. Pallen and their family, I would not be where I am today. My teachers, my friends, my family and that’s how it will always be.
Cynthia Royer -Hayward
That is Awesome. Was there any doubt Pallens would be voted #1? not in my mind. Pallen Breed & proud of it! I would never be where I am now without the entire Pallen family. Be proud because we are #1. Wahoo!
