Mr. Levesque is by far one of the most patient, understanding, incredible and all around amazing instructor and person. He gets through to the kids so naturally. PMA is highly recommended and I still can’t get how far our son has come in just one short year. Thank you Eric and Kellee for sharing your love of Tang Soo with us!!

Master Levesque is a wonderful mentor! My son and daughter have learned so much and really enjoy going to class. Prospect Martial Arts is a family friendly place where you will meet wonderful, caring people. Master Levesque puts his heart and soul into every class. He genuinely cares about each individual student both inside the dojo and out.

PMA has become like a second family to us. Mr Levesque is a phenomenal instructor. His patience, dedication, and understanding to all of his students is amazing. The way he teaches is truly inspiring. My son has come such a long way since he started a year ago. I could never thank you all enough for all you have done for us. We love you Eric, Kellee, and everyone else in our PMA family
