Mr. Aaron Pallesen began his martial arts journey at 9 years old after his parents enrolled him into his first Shotokan Karate class. 25 years later Mr. Pallesen has had the opportunity to compete and train with some of the worlds top sport karate competitors, world champion kickboxers, and world champion Muay Thai fighters.
“Had my parents not given me the chance to start karate as a kid, I wouldn’t be here today. Martial Arts gave me the chance to develop real, lasting confidence and an outlet through which to learn more self-discipline, especially struggling with ADHD most of my life. Martial Arts gave me a positive outlet to get rid of that energy, taught me to have the confidence to walk away from a fight, and taught me how to focus my energy into a single task, rather than letting my mind wander.”
Since 2014, Hive Martial Arts has been dedicated to passing along these life skills through quality martial arts, leadership training, and a successful character development program.

LISTEN TO WHAT OUR HAPPY PARENTS ARE SAYING
We joined Hive early last Fall and our son absolutely loves it! He's gained martial arts skills and valuable character building skills such as focus, respect and setting/achieving goals. The instructors are knowledgeable, friendly and flexible which has been especially helpful during Covid. It's highly professional and has been a positive experience all around. Check them out!
My Daughter has been learning karate through Hive for over 7 years. The instructors are awesome and so thoughtful. They really know how to individually motivate each kid. Their dedication to quality, both in teaching and in how much they care for and respect the art of karate, is inspiring. We couldn't imagine sending our daughter anywhere else!
My son has been a member of Hive Martial Arts for almost a year and the experience has been excellent. The instructors and support staff are inspiring, engaging, firm, and even entertaining - perfect for keeping young people engaged as they rigorously work their bodies. The lessons incorporate not only physical skills but mental skills and awareness. I highly recommend Hive Martial Arts.
