Meet Alex Puzza

Owner and Chief Instructor at
Proven Martial Arts in Wappingers Falls

At Proven Martial Arts we're focused on "Creating Tomorrow's Leaders...One Black Belt at a Time". As a family friendly martial arts school, we bend over backwards to make sure everyone has a positive experience - that goes for kids, adults, total beginners, or even experienced athletes.

Say bye-bye to boring routines! You'll get the best training possible to suit your specific needs and the needs of your family. With an endless variety of functional training drills, crazy-cool new martial arts techniques to learn, and non-stop cardio conditioning no two workouts are ever the same.

Are you a competitor at heart, simply want to get fit, or looking for an outlet for your child's wonderful energy? Our robust class offerings make sure we have something for everyone. Parents can train with their children in family classes or on their own. Either way, all of the classes are highly effective for personal defense, weight loss, and as a stand-alone martial art - when you combine the skills of taekwondo with various techniques of other Martial Arts you'll have a one up on any competition for sure!

Whether you want to seriously dedicate your time to becoming an amazing martial artist or simply want to get fitter fast - the key is that our instructors work WITH YOU and not for their own personal goals.

You get better based upon what you do, how hard you practice, and what you ultimately want to get our of your training. Our world-class instructors know exactly how to push you hard enough for you to bust out of a fitness funk and get to next level status.

Some of our most popular class offerings include:

  • Kids Taekwondo - our Tiny Tigers are 4-7 years old and learn all about discipline, respect, focus, and FUN!
  • Kids Martial Arts - ages 8-13 learn a wide variety of grappling, kicking, and striking drills to boost their confidence. Martial arts kids also keep a healthy weight through physical fitness and a strong mind for studies.
  • Adult Martial Arts - older Teens & Adults gain laser like focus and build upon the martial arts basics of Taekwondo and Gracie Jiu-Jitsu moves. Cool wrestling moves, high kicks, and tons of high fives can be seen in every class.
  • Family Classes - this is where parents and their kids kick it! Family classes help to support each other both on the mat and at home.
  • Adult Hapkido - adults learn the art of coordinated strength through kicking drills and using circular movements to dazzle and stun their opponents.
  • Korean Sword Class - Gumdo, also known as Korean Swordsmanship, will teach you the grace, structure, and skill of martial arts which surround impressive combat techniques.

We have a strict ZERO ego rule, also known as The No Jerk Policy. We don't teach students how to become brawlers or encourage kids to start fights. Teamwork in class is encouraged so everyone is comfortable working with their partners and not worrying about getting hurt because the other person has something to prove.

We like to have fun in class and think you should too. We take great pride in keeping our facility as clean and up to date as possible. You'll always have professional grade equipment, sanitized mats, and plenty of lit parking for your safety. All we ask is that you return the good hygiene favors too by showing up to class with a clean uniform!

For more details on our unique ways to squash fears, have the most fun you've EVER had working out, and get you into that "can do" mind-set just visit our classes page. The "Classes" link in the menu above is where we break down what it is we do in each class and where you can find that super low web-special going on too! Wouldn't want you to miss out.
