Start your karate training now with a museum scholarship. Current offer is a special two and a half month summer introductory program in Old Town or Sorrento and Carmel Valley are taught by the Pacific Martial Arts (est. 1978).

The Martial Arts Museum of America is a

(non profit corporation 501(c)(3)) sponsor of educational programs of various

types, such as school assemblies, demonstrations, scholarships, awards,

classes and more. Two locations are currently available in Old Town and

Del Mar-Carmel Valley areas.

Students can register for two days per week in the traditional karate programs.  Classes are for ages 6 to 17. There is a special class for 4-5 year olds called the mini ninjas..

  • Students aged six to seventeen can register for two days per week in traditional karate programs. Students aged 4 and 5 can register for the Thursday class 515 PM to 545 PM.

Students can register for this special summer program that starts June 1. Students attend a free trial class to ascertain interest and understand the concepts of karate. Students can start at anytime after June 1st but fees are not prorated since they are very discounted already. Summer is a good time to start a karate program and we realize there will be absences due to vacation times as well. The purpose of this museum program is to further participation and understanding of karate, and also provide financial assistance if needed.

These particular classes will be held in the Old Town area with easy access from I-5 or I-8. The location of the Pacific Martial Arts studio is at 2266 San Diego Ave at the corner of Old Town Ave. It is a large facility, 6000 square feet, parking in back. The Carmel-Sorrento Valley location is located at 11855 Sorrento Valley Rd at the corner of Carmel Mountain Rd.

MAMA (the museum) contracts out the course arrangements to well qualified traditional teachers of black belt standing. Only students registering through MAMA can receive this particular course instruction and at these rates.

This scholarship offer cannot be used with any other offers or in lieu of existing agreements in karate studios.
