Student of the Month
- Shreya Palecanda -
Please share with our readers a little bit of your life outside of PAMA.
I write software codes for a living. I enjoy reading books , listening to music and playing the piano.
What is your profession and background?
I was born and raised in India. I graduated as a Computer Science Engineer and moved to NJ in 2006. I have been working as a Software Engineer for the past 7 years.I currently work for IBIS a Software Solutions company.
What first turned you on to martial arts?
My father's love for martial arts weapons and movies got me interested in the art. I started training in karate when i was seven and enjoyed every minute of it.
How did you hear about PAMA? What influenced you to join PAMA?
I read about PAMA on the Internet while I was searching for a martial arts school in the Princeton area. I took a trial class and it was so much better than i expected, after that there was no looking back.
What do you most enjoy about your training?
I feel each class pushes my self-imposed limits and always leaves me felling a little better. I also like the fact that we train with a partner, it really helps me understand when and how to use everything that we learn , before PAMA i always felt a disconnect between the moves i learnt and applying them in anything other than a drill.
What are some of the benefits that you have experienced through the Martial Arts?
It keeps me active and makes me feel more focused and motivated.
Anything else additional you would like to add?
I would like to thank Sifu and all the other instructors for their time, patience and dedication. I look forward to training harder in the years to come.
