Welcome to PKSA Karate Ann Arbor! We are part of the Professional Karate Schools of America. PKSA Karate is the largest martial arts training organization in Michigan. But we are not the best because we are the biggest - we are the biggest because we are the best!
At PKSA we train in the traditional Korean martial art of Tang Soo Do. Join us in a program of self-improvement, self-defense, fitness and fun! Martial arts training helps to develop key skills for success:
We offer many programs to suit your needs including family martial arts classes, adult martial arts classes, "Little Ninjas" for our youngest (4-5 year old) martial artists, sparring classes, weapons training and seminars, self-defense seminars, cardio kickboxing and an awesome summer camp for 5-12 year olds!
We would love to give you a tour of our facility and provide you with a free private introductory class - please call us at 734-214-0801 to reserve your time!
We look forward to introducing you to the exciting world of Tang Soo Do!
At PKSA Karate, we pride ourselves in teaching an outstanding traditional martial art in a family friendly environment. Coupled with exciting kicks and effective self defense techniques, the discipline, self control, and perseverance fostered by the study of Tang Soo Do make this training a work out for the body and the mind.
Our instruction offers a balance between physical training in the martial arts, self defense concepts and simple philosophical lessons for a balanced life.
For over 15 years we have been living and working in the Ann Arbor community. Aside from martial arts, camps, and fitness, we also feel obligated to work in the community. Every year we participate in several fund-raising and charity events to benefit people right here in Ann Arbor including our Turkey Brigade, which provides Thanksgiving meals to hundreds of needy families each year.
We believe that martial arts are about more than just kicking and punching and encourage our students to achieve excellence, inwardly and outwardly.
Our clients are our passion. Hear what they think.
Both of my boys have taken lessons at PKSA. For my oldest Karate has been "his thing". He loves sparring, learning new moves, weapons, and more than anything the care and attention all of the PKSA staff offer him to foster his martial artistry. Thanks PKSA!
I can't drag my son away from karate classes. Every day during the summer he wakes up and wants to go to the dojang - even Sundays!
This has been a wonderful family activity that all of us have enjoyed together. We love participating in classes and all of the fun activities and being part of PKSA family.
I love the family oriented environment and great instructors. My son has learned self-discipline, goal setting and has made many friends in the dojang! Mr. Jibril is the best!
We are just completing our first self-defense class which met at the PKSA Karate studio and cannot say enough about the quality of the class and mostly the instructor, Joel Pitti, who is a 4th degree black belt and accomplished teacher of over 15 years.
The quality of the instruction exceeded our expectations. Joel was in tune with the varied abilities of the class as he individualized methods with the focus on prevention of dangerous situations, dealing with the different levels of confrontation and the physical techniques necessary to protect oneself or a third party.
Being retired teachers, we truly understand the challenge of high quality teaching, individualizing instruction and balancing the art and science of the curriculum.
A tremendous benefit to the class was the outstanding support the class had from the involvement of Joel's students and teachers. Jibril, Lynda, Keith, Ginny, Ken and Mike contributed significantly to our progress. We are looking forward to a followup class to continue with Joel and this fine program.

My son is a student at Lapeer PKSA. I stumbled on to your website and I wanted to say it is a GREAT set up!
I wish all of the schools had individual websites so that information was readily available to them. Events schedules, class schedules, etc. Easy for students and parents to find info….especially working parents like me.

PKSA Ann Arbor is my second family, my home away from home. I love the atmosphere that everyone promotes. I always strive to live up to the goal that Kyosa Jibril issued in class when I was Green belt to leave a better martial artist than when I first came in to class for the day, every day. I like going to adult class Kyosa Lynda is a great instructor who does a great job in inspiring
everyone to do a great job. Master Pitti is a wonderful example of how hard work and dedication in something you love to do truly does pay off, Thank you for being a great role model Sir!!
PKSA Karate is a family-owned franchise. Our parent school headed by Master Collins is dedicated to creating a safe environment in which to help our students develop themselves as martial artists and people. Supreme Grandmaster Hwang Kee said that the purpose of Tang Soo Do training is "to develop every aspect of self."
We offer training for all ages in Tang Soo Do Karate. We also offer seminars, fitness classes, personal training, kick boxing, summer camps, a demo team and a STORM (Special Team of Role Models) team.
