USA Professional Karate Studio

Making People Confident, Strong, and Safe . . .

We are the most established Karate school in the greater Pittsburgh area, having first opened our doors on Murray Avenue in Squirrel Hill in March, 1981. Sensei George Mowod and staff teach American Freestyle Karate, which is a combination of different styles of karate and various martial arts mixed with sport kickboxing, American boxing, and weapon's training and defense, to produce immediate and practical application of the martial arts. We have a friendly, respectful, family atmosphere where we emphasize character development, physical fitness and self-defense. Our teaching methods employ up-to-date & scientifically proven means of learning such as positive reinforcement, goal setting, and use of stripes, belts, merit patches and rewards to motivate, encourage and maintain the interest of every student. As a result, we see hundreds of students reaching their highest potential in life. Our children's program is second to none and includes a variety of specific classes for children based on age and experience level.

“Krav Maga is so much fun. The classes are a great workout as well as teaching you to defend yourself in an increasingly uncertain world. George is a fantastic and knowledge- able instructor. I highly recommend USA Professional Karate!”

The master is wonderful and my son loves the class!

Mr. BP, Karate Parent

I've been taking Krav Maga for just a few weeks but already feel my skill level going up. The classes are friendly, encouraging, and extremely practical. Do I think I can defeat any attacker? No, but I'm pretty sure I could make them regret choosing me.

Ms. MK, Karate Parent and Krav Maga Student

I really enjoy my group- have developed Real relationships that make the class a lot of fun
