PIMA Academy was built on Guro Dong’s belief that each student's personal goals, fitness level, and experience should always be kept in mind. Whether you are completely new to martial arts or a master in another style, PIMA instructors cater to your individual needs and ability. If you need more time to develop, you will not feel pressured. If you have previous experience, you will not be held back. There are absolutely no age or fitness limitations and, because Doce Pares is an open system, you can join even if you are still practicing another martial art. At PIMA we constantly learn from each other, and anyone—no matter your age or number of years practicing—can be a teacher. We are family and welcome everyone.
