Oregon's Best Martial Ats Academy 6/27/2011

I have known Sensei Paul Keller for nearly 15 years, and have found him to be the best instructor I""ve ever had. I am currently studying qi gong with him, and that has been so healing after a year of dealing with cancer. This is where the Internal Arts such as meditation and qi gong play a huge part in healing. Once again I feel a whole, spiritual person who is always in the moment. One learns mindfulness from all of the martial and internal arts. My son, daughter and husband all studied Okinawan Karate with Sensei Keller beginning 15 years ago, and they have their black belts repectively: 3rd degree black belt with 2nd degree in weapons; 2nd degree black belt; and first degree black belt. Recently my son's life was threatened on a French train, and he was able to put the attackers on the ground as well as take a knife away from the one who tried to use it. Without his excellent training in karate and fast reflexes, he would have not succeeded in capturing his assailants. Our family has learned so much from Sensei Keller, not just ""karate lessons"", but also discipline, true compassion for others, and a spirituality which includes mindfulness. For this we are very grateful. more

Family Martial Arts did wonders for my daughter 6/16/2011

My daughter has been with Family Martial Arts for 1 year and 1/2 and she loves going. I was looking for some type of program to put her into because she was having trouble in school being agressive towards the other kids.I will be honest and wasnt sure if this would fuel the fire so to speach or help her. I am so lucky to have found this program. From day one they really took the time to work with her to work out her anger issues and learn different ways to handle situations.She has learned self control. After just a few months she was a different kid and has come so far this past year. They all do a great job there and I would highly recommend this school to anyone. It has truely made a difference for us and our life. more

Amazing progam for my 4yr old 6/13/2011

My son joined the program at Family Martial Arts Academy this spring and we LOVE it! He is 4yrs old and has thoroughly enjoyed the program. All of the instructors are amazing and do a great job with the kids in the Tiny Tigers age group. My son constantly asks if it is the day to go to class, so I would say he is very motivated to attend class! I also like that they encourage reading at home as well as doing ""jobs"" at home. I think it is a very well-rounded program and I would highly recommend it to anyone! more

Karate and Self Defense 6/9/2011

I’ve been training at Family Martial Arts Academy for over 3 years now. Every class provides an opportunity for learning new skills, a great physical workout, improved self confidence, and a lot of fun that makes working hard easy to do. Sensei Paul Keller and all of the instructors provide exceptional teaching in a variety of classes including traditional Shorin-ryu Karate, mixed martial arts, kickboxing, tai chi, qigong, jiu jitsu, self-defense, and more. There are classes available for children starting at the youngest 3-6 year olds, juniors 7-11, teens, and adults. I enjoy the range of classes from the enjoyable and supportive family classes to advanced black belt classes. If you are looking for a place to gain skills, have fun, and feel like you are part of a supportive family – Beaverton Family Martial Arts Academy is a great place to check out! more

Love sensei Paul Keller's karate classes 6/7/2011

My 4 and 6 years old boys, my husband and I are all taking karate lessons at the Beaverton Family Martial Arts Academy for several months now. It’s been great. The kids’ movement – coordination has improved noticeably, and they getting a great exercise they need. They also are thought to be respectful. This is a great reinforcement to when I try to teach them the same thing at home. The instructors are great with the kids, and highly skilled. They do make the kids work hard, but make it fun for them at the same time, my kids love going there. My husband and I have signed up too, this gives us a great chance to do a work out, and learn self-defense at the same time. This is such a good thing for us, as we both have a sitting-by-the-computer-all-day kind of a job. I recommend this karate school for any age. more

True Community in the Studio 5/4/2010

""As both a teacher and a student at the Tigard Family Martial Arts Academy, I have nothing but praise and good will to speak of. The Academy was actually the third school that me and my family looked at, and right from the beginning we knew that this was the school for us. Between the wonderful community, the strong teaching staff, and the challenging but engaging atmosphere, there was little more we could ask for. I have been attending the school for a few years now, and I can honestly say that you couldn't find a better academy in the area even if you tried.

Great Instruction and Guidance 4/8/2010

Thank you Mr. Keller for guiding our youngest son John to the conclusion of his journey to become a Black Belt; for teaching him the discipline to reach his desired goal of physical and mental readiness for life's challenges.
