THE STUDIO is the original home of the
BAM Taekwondo program. Created by
Master Amitis Pourarian, it 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.
BAM: 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

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

BAM has made such a positive impact in my life, I am truly amazed everyday at what we have accomplished. I have made life long friendships with an amazing group of women that continue to inspire me. BAM has taught me to be more confident & that I can conquer anything I put my mind to. It is very rewarding & I would recommend it to women of all ages.

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 applys the mental
teachings of taekwondo in our daily lives and
helps us to become confident and stronger
individuals. I would recommend BAM 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

I was a little unsure of the idea of starting
Martial Arts, maybe because of the phase or age
of my life. It has been a physical and mental
challenge which I think everyone needs.
It takes discipline and commitment which will
help to strengthen the body and mind.
