Overview

I've been learning Taekwondo since I was 8 years old. I have a really strong background in olympic style taekwondo (Form and Sparring). This is the world taekwondo federation style rules that are learned in 186 different countries. I am 26 years old and work great with kids and adults as well.

I've competed in many Junior and Senior nationals and have also competed in U.S Open and International tournaments. I currently am an instructor and manager of Pro Martial Arts in in Dallas Texas. Before that, I was the head instructor at White Tiger Martial arts in Sachse/Wylie Texas for four years. I am professional and fun. I will accommodate to what you want in martial arts lessons whether it be competition, fitness, or character education and personal safety for the kids.

I am confident in my lessons and I will even offer your first lesson free.

Please call Takelessons! I live in Richardson Texas and I am willing to meet with you to discuss any of your questions.

Max is an excellent teacher and great with the kids. I love how he's fun, but with just the right amount of strictness. I also appreciate how he makes a point to interact with the parents after class. We're new to martial arts and my boys have been thoroughly enjoying class.

My son has been learning karate with Max for about a year now. Max is great with kids. He is patient and makes the lessons fun. My son had some bullying issues at school and Max took time out aside and sat with him and discussed how to deal with bullies. He appears to be truly concerned for his students well-being. Max is a compassionate, knowledgable and patient teacher. I strongly recommend him.

Max is truly a one of a kind instructor. It's not hard to be blown away by his Taekwondo skill level when he takes a few steps, jumps 5 feet in the air, turns his body while simultaneously kicking and punching, and lands on two feet making it look effortless. All of the kids in his class and the parents watching collectively gasp and say "Whoa"! But the skills Max possess are not what impress me most about this young man. It is his approachability, kindness, willingness to engage with each child as if he/she was the only child in the room, and his unique ability to make Taekwondo fun. Our son is lucky to have Max instruct him.

As a colleague of Max's, I witnessed an instructor who cared about each of his students and took the time to make sure they had a smile on their face from start to finish. Your child will be in great hands with Max!

When you first meet Mr. Peng you immediately become aware of how jovial he is. This is a huge asset because it immediately eases any nervousness a student (or parent) has when beginning instruction. Once he starts training this casualness is replaced by an all business demeanor that commands respect. His honed skill and vast knowledge in martial arts is unmatched and his patience is infinite. In teaching my daughter he showed her he valued her as a person and ingrained in her a sense of pride. Mr. Peng makes a personal investment in his students and is clearly passionate about martial arts and teaching it.

As an adult who is a visual learner I can also tell you that he teaches the mechanics of martial arts in such a way that I can 1) grasp the meaning of the move and 2) see how moves build upon each other. He is also a great motivator for those of us who are, er… out of shape and less inclined to follow through with a workout on our own! It is a true privilege to learn this graceful art under the expert hand of Mr. Peng.
