TESTIMONIALS

“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 daughter’s self confidence, and self esteem. Jerry’s classes have also improved my daughters teamwork skills.”
– Chris Pisani

“When our son started elementary school, we looked for a sport for him to have as an extracurricular activity and upon recommendation of a family friend we went to Maloney’s Martial Arts. Even in that first class, it was obvious that Jerry loves what he does. He was patient with the kids without talking down to them, and the kids clearly respected him and the studio.

Jerry teaches form and physical discipline, but also mental and philosophical techniques. The amazing thing is that it resonates with the kids and they retain it. His combination of mind and body teaching offers a lot more than other places we looked into that seemed to shuffle students through.

We honestly believe that the discipline and skills our son learns at karate carry over to home life. Jerry is always talking to the kids about being respectful and kind, and everyone tells us how well-behaved, respectful and helpful our son is.

We would highly recommend Maloney’s Martial Arts.”

“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!”

– Allison Pruitt, 2017 San Jose Unified District Teacher of the Year

“I am a teacher to one of Jerry Maloney’s sons. Early in the year, Jerry expressed interest in coming in to help with P.E. I’ve been teaching for over ten years and never had a parent help with that! It has been such a wonderful experience for the students (and me)! They are learning more than just ways to exercise… They are learning “Keep your mind and body still”, “Keep eye contact”, “Repeat message”, and “Tighten your attention”. These are such beneficial skills for children that they are also applying in the classroom. The students highly respect him, and really look forward to him coming each week. Jerry and his family are an asset to this school and no doubt his Martial Arts students highly benefit from his teachings and expertise.”
– Christie Lewis, Allen at Steinbeck Teacher

“My daughter has been attending Maloney’s Martial Arts for the last 6 years and I can honestly say that it was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. Jerry Maloney not only teaches the fundamentals of karate but he also teaches them to be better students. He enables his students to be strong and confident versions of themselves. Jerry has a 7th degree black belt but that isn’t his greatest asset, although it is pretty impressive, his greatest asset is his incredibly positive attitude toward all of his students.”
– An Kang

“Maloney’s Martial Arts is a great place for your child to gain confidence, self-awareness and have some fun too. I have seen a change in my son from the time we started 3 months ago to now. He carries himself differently, is stronger, and has gained self-confidence. I’ve checked out other studios and we like Master Jerry’s mild instruction style. My son enjoys coming and that says it all!”
– E.T.

“If I could give 6 stars, I would! I’ll talk about the children’s program, as that is where I have experience with Jerry. Martial arts can be a great way to help build confidence and strength in kids (and adults), but when you have a shy, gentle child, the classic approaches can be overwhelming and off-putting (I know from having visited several other programs with my son before settling here). Jerry has taken his courses to a level that keeps it fun yet teaches real-world discipline and skills. Throughout the classes, he works on emphasizing values such as honesty, discipline and hard work. He focuses on helping children grow into not just great martial artists, but into great people. The impact on my 13 year old son has been amazing and my only wish is that I’d known about Jerry years ago to begin the training then.”
– J. L.

“My sons (6 and 8) love Maloney’s Martial Arts. We switched from a traditional and very strict Karate school to Maloney’s Martial Arts and couldn’t be happier. That place is clean, the classes are not over crowded, the instructors are always friendly and fun and the price is good. Their camps are so much fun, too. New kids always get introduced to each other. Mr. Maloney and his wife always take time to answer questions and rescheduling a missed class is so easy. We are so happy we finally found our perfect match.”
– Sylvia T.

“I stopped in at Maloney’s Martial Arts in October of last year to try out the senior self defense class. I was looking for something fun to do that would help improve my balance, flexibility, stamina and self confidence. What I got was a lot more. After just one class, I loved it so much that I decided to switch to a regular class. And, with Jerry’s guidance, I not only exceeded my exercise goals, but learned some valuable self defense skills in the process. I love the friendly and supportive atmosphere and look forward to each class. Maloney’s is the perfect place for all ages, even a 70 year old woman like me.”
– Nancy S., age 70

“For the 8 years that I have been going to Jerry’s studio, I can without a doubt say that it has been nothing but fun and beneficial not only physically, but mentally as well. When starting out, I quickly learned through Jerry that his studio is not only a place you go to practice self defense, but a place you go to better your mind and yourself as a person. No matter how I feel before class, I always have a fun time and leave feeling great because of the high energy in the studio, along with the great teachers and training partners. Almost every class we are learning new moves and techniques that Jerry is still incorporating. Jerry is also very patient and good at making sure you understand how to do every move. It’s a great environment for all people and a place I will continue to go to for a long time.”
– Dylan J., age 15
