Mentally you can expect to develop self motivation, respect, confidence, and control along with a positive outlook on the challenges life throws at you.
THE STUDIO is the original home of the BAM women’s Taekwondo classes. Created by Master Amitis Pourarian, BAM is designed to meet the martial arts, women’s self defense, and life coaching needs of women in our community. This program is exclusive to THE STUDIO. You don’t need any experience to participate, and our women’s martial arts classes are open to women of all ages and fitness levels.
THE STUDIO is a member of the United Taekwondo Association (UWTA) and teaches Kukkiwon-style poomsae. Visit our “What is Taekwondo?” page to learn more about taekwondo.

I started BAM for a variety of reasons, fitness, discipline, and mostly to make a commitment to myself and to my children. Over the last month I have better focus, better coordination, more control, and more confidence. I am also more limber, and in better cardiovascular shape!! If I have already achieved this much in one month, I’m nothing less than excited to see where I’m at in two years when I embark on my black belt journey! I have met wonderful, strong women and I’m proud to say I train at the studio under Master Pourarian.

These gals are beautiful, strong, independent, wise, kind, and funny women. Words cannot experience the gratitude I feel towards this group of women. They have changed my life and continue to. When I started BAM, I also started my graduate degree. This group of women not only helped me grow but pushed me to succeed. Master P has a saying “if they can do it, then I can do it!” That is right, and is often what goes through my head — that I have no excuse! If I want to succeed I need to put the time in. Each journey through Taekwondo is unique. While the journey is still your own, at THE STUDIO and in BAM you get to share this journey. The ups and downs, the triumphs and disappointments, that journeys often bring. THE STUDIO preps are always there to pick you up and push you forward. BAM has given me advice, listened, makes me laugh every day, has provided a shoulder to cry on, given me a since of purpose, and so much more. BAM is truly BAD A**!”

BAM has made an impact on my life in many ways. It is an awesome group of women that have become a weekly part of my life and I look forward to it. Master P is teaching us beyond the physical aspects of this art. She applies the mental teachings of taekwondo in our daily lives and helps us to become confident and stronger individuals. I would recommend BAM women’s taekwondo classes to any woman who wants to strengthen herself inside and out! I did not expect BAM to be as rewarding as it is, but it is a great feeling all of us working hard towards the same goal! I look forward to training and earning my black belt someday in the future… it may take awhile but I know I can accomplish this!”
