"When my son wanted to sign up for Martial Arts, I didn’t know where to begin and honestly was a little reluctant. I had heard people complain about the whole industry being a bit of a racket with contracts and extra fees for testing and belts etc. I also had an impression of it being overly rigid and intense. But when a friend recommended I try out Maloney's Martial Arts, I was pleasantly surprised and certainly now stand corrected. Master Jerry Maloney makes this the dojo it is. And it is an engaging, safe environment where students feel they can make mistakes and learn from them. The focus is not on competition or belts, but rather growing as a person and getting stronger both physically and mentally.
Master Jerry Maloney has all the attributes of an outstanding instructor: he is reflective, he is masterful in his differentiation, and he has a true passion for guiding youngsters to becoming confident and self-controlled individuals who take responsibility for their actions. He’s also commendably patient and positive.
I particularly admire how Master Jerry challenges his students to be mindful of their thoughts, comments, and actions. (In this day and age of social media, we could all do with a little more mindfulness.)
My son has been a student at Maloney's Martial Arts for four years now and he always looks forward to class. He takes Master Jerry’s teachings to heart and has used them to help navigate situations he has encountered. I couldn’t ask for a better mentor and role model for my son or myself! Check it out! You won’t be sorry you did!"

"My son has been taking karate with Jerry Maloney at Maloney's Martial Arts for about a year and our experience has been wonderfully positive, Jerry teaches the kids not only the amazing art of Karate, but how to stop, listen and think, which are such important tools. My son gets a great physical and mental workout in the class, and has a blast."

"My daughter has been attending classes with Jerry Maloney at Maloney's Martial arts for four years now, in addition to developing self defense skills, the classes have helped my daughter develop character, integrity, and respect. I have seen major improvements in my daughters self confidence, and self esteem. Jerry's classes have also improved my daughters teamwork skills."
