Hello everyone, hope you're having a great day... I want to thank and congratulate everyone who participated in last weekend's PMAA Championships. I'm very proud of everyone and their effort, and I hope it was a great learning experience for all. I also wanted to publicly thank our staff and black belts who dedicated their time, and their entire Saturday to ensure that the event went off without a hitch, we couldn't have done it without you. Also congratulations to our Demo Team on their performance at the event. It was very entertaining, and enjoyed by all of the masters who had a front row seat.

and now... the news



After Master George Celona's visit to our studio last month, and Master Michael Celona's visit to Impact Martial Arts last Saturday... we are hosting Master Angel Celona tonight (April 16th). Please be sure to attend and make her feel welcome. We had a great time at the previous two events... This visit, I'm sure will be great.

TOMORROW: Pilsung Tournament Photo op!

If you competed in last...



This is the update for this week... take note:

Tonight's practice in all classes are tournament style. Many of you have your names on our tournament sign up sheet. Which by the way... those who have not turned in their applications, and paid... need to do so right away. Early registration discount ends on April 1st. Come in tonight, and get your work in. We know the other Pilsung Studios are preparing... you should as well.

3/23/24 (SATURDAY) No classes.


While we have been devoting a few minutes throughout the last few weeks to tournament practice, we have not set aside specific days to devote fully to preparation for the tournament. The following days and times are specifically set for tournament practice... as the event gets closer, we will likely add more:

Thursday March 21st - All Classes

Monday March 25th - All Classes

Tuesday March 26th - All Classes


Saturday April 13th at Strath Haven High School

All students of all...


Good Morning,

Here's the news update for the things coming up this week...

NO BOHK: For this whole week (March 11th through the 16th) we will be training in the format of "No-BOHK" meaning training in regular clothing or athletic shorts and t-shirt. No martial arts belts will be worn with your regular clothes. Just show up in what you wear everyday if you choose.


Students who are interested in the BJJ class, are permitted to try it out. The trial program is the same as the Karate program (4 weeks for $49.99). The only difference is that you have to purchase a BJJ Gi (uniform) as your Pilsung Dobohk will rip.

This program is NOT open to Little Champions, and Young Gladiator students need special permission by Master Celona if he determines you'd be good for the class.

Anyone in the 6:30pm class should be able to participate.


Some of you may or may not know that Master Celona's cousin George and his wife Angel are Master Instructors and own Impact Martial Arts in...


Good Morning and Happy Monday!

Here's the news...

A reminder that tonight is Gup testing for those who are eligible as per our last email. Testing group is not large enough to cancel classes tonight, so we will still be holding class according to our regular schedule.


While we have been devoting a few minutes throughout the last few weeks to tournament practice, we have not set aside specific days to devote fully to preparation for the tournament.

I wanted to send out an update today to let you know some of the things we have going on. If you check your email, we are trying out a new email editor... it's super fancy... Hope you like it.

We want to announce that in 2024 we will be returning to our ORIGINAL format, which is: MONDAY belt exams will be given, and FRIDAY passing students will be promoted.
