PKA Karate Academy

Top Martial Arts School in Pittsburgh: Teaching Karate and Self Defense for Kids and Adults.

Come and check out Pittsburgh’s best state-of-the-art training facility with close to 5,000 square feet and two training mats. We feature unlimited parking which is a major comfort today. The PKA Karate Academy is known for over 45 years and our new facility has been rated #1 for over 4 years in the South Hills of PA. Today with growing concerns in a gym setting about things like staph infection, MRSA, ringworm, Klebsiella, e. Coli and influenza, we’re also very honored to be known as the cleanest fitness facility in Pittsburgh. Come experience for yourself why many are saying, “PKA Karate Academy is the Taj Mahal of martial arts and fitness centers in the Burgh!”

We proudly serve the communities of Baldwin Boro, Whitehall Boro, Brentwood, Pleasant Hills, Jefferson Hills, Castle Shannon, and Bethel Park… (Just to name a few.) However, we have students coming from Beechview, Brookline, Dormont, Mt. Lebanon, South Park, Upper St. Clair, Scott, Greentree, Munhall and even the East Hills and North Hills areas.

Why would someone drive over an hour and a half in traffic to train at PKA? One reason is that PKA Karate is the oldest and most well-known karate and martial arts studio in the Pittsburgh area and has been in business since before 1970.

Regardless of what your goals are in training, our studio will work with you, every way possible. And on the flip-side, if we’re unable to help you achieve your goals, we will refer you to the local gym or workout facility that will help you. WHAT??? Yes, as the most respected dojo in Pittsburgh, we know the others and their specialties and send new students and leads to our “competitors” on a regular basis.
