“Leadership by example!”
Greatest coach ever! Leadership by example. Anything you wanted to see or do Mr. O'Malley would do and show you how.

“Learned things I use everyday.”
Master O'Malley taught me things I have used every day in every aspect of my life. The respect he shows and demands everyone show each other is a lesson I try to pass on and live up to. -

My 9 year old grandson loves O'Malley's Martial Arts school and I was so impressed - I became a student at 65 years old. The training from Master O'Malley and Instructor Folau is of the highest caliber. One word best describes M J O'Malley's Tae Kwon Do Center -AWESOME .

“My son's self confidence, attention span, and physical coordination have all dramatically improved.”
My 9 year old son has been taking classes at MJ O'Malley Tae Kwon Do Center since he was 5 years old and I have been beyond pleased with the effect. My son's self confidence, attention span, and physical coordination have all dramatically improved because of his participation in Tae Kwon Do. While learning this martial art and self defense, each child learns respect and kindness for others. The instructors are experts at working with children of all ages as well as adults. The instructors get to know each child individually and allows each child to grow and progress at their own pace, all the while stretching them to their next achievable level/goal. The classes and programs are all designed with maximum opportunity for parents to make a schedule that would work best for them. I would highly recommend MJ O'Malley Tae Kwon Do Center to both children and adults alike.

"My son learned more in the first month at O'Malley Tae Kwon Do studio that he did in the 3 years at his old school!"
Master O'Malley is definitely the real deal, my son studied for 3 years at another school in Peabody, the rising cost of that school had me looking for somewhere else to send my son, he's (7yrs old), I found master O'Malleys almost by mistake, thank god I did however, my son learned more in the first month at O'Malleys Tae Kwon Do studio that he did in the 3 years at his old school, Master O'Malley takes the time to teach the right technics to all ages, love that I found his studio and my son loves it here compared to his old school, the integrity, self control, and perseverance they teach is second to none, you WILL not find a better studio on the North Shore....

“Everyday they all come out of school and say "can we go to Tae Kwon Do???”
I was looking for a activity for my son to do, as he doesn't like team sports like my other two children do. I studied under Mr. O' Malley 23 yrs ago, and when I saw he opened a school in my home town I knew I had to bring my son down to see a class. Well that day I had all three children with me. After seeing the class they all wanted to join. So now everyday they all come out of school and say "can we go to Tae Kwon Do???" They love going! Mr. O'Malley and Mr Folau are wonderful in their teaching. They show, and expect respect be given between students. They teach not only a Martial Art, but life lessons, such as courtesy, politeness, respect, patience, and perseverance, just to name a few! It is a wonderful Martial Arts school that teaches more than just kicks, punches, and fighting moves! The school teaches you how to be confident and successful in everyday life. "

"They have fun, but also are learning about hard work, self control and confidence"
We looked at a lot of schools before choosing O'Malley's. This school really is wonderful. Both of my boys enjoy going. They have fun, but also are learning about hard work, self control and confidence. The instructors are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. There is unlimited class time.. you can go as much or as little as your schedule permits. They also offer camps when there are days off from school. My husband recently joined, and he also loves going. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for a school that manages to take teaching TKD seriously while maintaining a warm and fun atmosphere.
