We just had our son’s 10th birthday at Progressive Martial Arts in Fresh Meadows and we were impressed with the entire experience. Kathy, the program director was friendly, responsive, and professional. They make it so simple and they took care of everything but the cake. This place is awesome! It’s a huge, spacious facility packed with all kinds of equipment. We were pleasantly surprised at all the games Kathy was able to fit into the session. There was plenty of space for the pizza and cake portion of the party and they even have an area where parents can sit at small tables during the martial arts session. They really thought of everything! The entire staff was so helpful and literally took care of every detail. There was a happy flow to the party that just cannot be faked. I cannot say enough great things about PMA.
I was so pleased with the party but my opinion comes second to all the children and especially my son who had a blast! The next day at school the boys were still talking about the party. I call that a successful party, indeed. I totally look like a hero too!

Awesome place to train! I've been training here for years via seminars. I highly recommend this place to anyone that is serious about exploring the arts and looking to better themselves and others.

I love this place! The gym is clean and spacious; could do with additional bathroom stalls though. They are so organized and they care about your child. They will call you if your child doesn't show up for class and to find out if they are enjoying themselves. My daughter started in September and she LOVES her class. She complained about sore muscles from push-ups the first week but now she brags about how many push-ups and sit-ups she can do and how high she can kick. I see a difference in her; she has confidence and a sense of camaraderie with her classmates. She says the teachers are awesome and she's very excited she got a stripe on her belt. I'm so glad I signed her up at PMA.

How Progressive Martial Arts is Preparing for the Coronavirus

*** Updated 7:00 pm on Friday, March 13th, 2020***

The team at Progressive Martial Arts is committed to the health and safety of our Members.

We will use this page (as well as communicate via our Facebook Community Group, Business Page, and E-Mail) to keep you posted.

We are taking this 1 day at a time as this is an unprecedented event that is occurring.

PREVENTATIVE MEASURES

Our Team is being very proactive in taking steps towards the health of our students and hygiene in our gym. 

We have hand sanitizers readily available throughout the academy and antibacterial hand soap in the bathrooms. 

We regularly clean our mats with hospital grade cleaner and have increased the number of sessions of mat cleanings per day and have also increased deep cleaning sessions per week for the time being.  We have also hired a professional company to come in each evening to do a full in depth cleaning. 

We are urging all students, parents and siblings to STAY HOME if you feel sick, even if the symptoms are not consistent with the coronavirus or flu.  This will help the spreading of any and all illnesses.  This is our policy year round, but we are asking everyone to be especially vigilant during this time.  

ONLINE CLASSES

For those who are unable to attend class due to illness or other risk factors, we do have the technology in place to allow for realtime at-home participation, including interaction from your kids’ favorite instructors. Live Adult classes will be available as well.

Online Classes will begin next week. A schedule of Online Classes that are specific to your programs will be emailed to you.

FREEZING YOUR PROGRAM

As a courtesy to our members, anytime you miss more than 4 weeks of training, we have always added that missed time to the end of your Program.

If you foresee yourself being out for more than 4 weeks, please send us an e-mail and we will add your missed time to the end of your Program.

Your monthly payment will still be processed – but you won’t lose your time.

CDC PREVENTION STEPS

We are also asking our students to follow the CDC’s prevention steps below to stop the spreading of illnesses.  Specifically:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask (not recommended- see website)
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty. 

You can find these guidelines and more information here:

LEADERS DON’T PANIC, THEY PREPARE

While we recognize the seriousness of this virus, we also recognize that remaining physically fit is an important way to ensure a healthy immune system.

Further, we believe that in frightening times, it is important for kids to maintain as much consistency as possible, within reason.

Our goal is to employ practices that reduce risk while focusing on educating our students with empathy and compassion so they can balance their emotions with logic and information.

Your children are going to follow your lead.

Make sure it’s one to follow.

Thank you for your cooperation. 

We are hoping that everyone will do their part as we take every measure to keep our Academy a safe and clean environment.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
