I had a wonderful time taking part in the classes at Sifu Stephane and his family's dojo. Sifu and the other instructors are knowledgeable, welcoming and passionate in the art of Kung Fu. I highly recommend this school. I hope to bring my little ones to the family sessions in the near future. More...

There are many martial arts schools in Orleans, but the positive energy and and family-like atmosphere at Patenaude can't be beat. Unlike many gyms and other clubs, this is an "intimidation-free" school where you will develop new skills, work hard and love every minute of it. More...

Amazing gym. If you would like to train for MMA, Street self defence, Kung-fu, they have it all. This gym will physically and mentally prepare you for life. My 2 kids go to this gym and the learn not only how to defend themselves, but they learn discipline, respect and responsiblity. If you want to start a journey to become a mma fighter in a cage this is your gym. If you would like to gain confidence or learn street self defence, this is your gym. If you want to have a great training experience in an awesome positive environment, this is the place to be. Amazing gym, amazing atmosphere, amazing instructor's! More...

Met Sifu Steph 6 yrs ago when I was looking for a dojo that offered day time training. I have been attending the morning sessions (Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays pretty regularly for the past 6 years, and none of the classes have been the same. Sifu Steph is a master at leading challenging work outs and keeping them fresh and fun at the same time. Besides the obvious physical benefits, I have really enjoyed the comradery and friendships I have built with my training partners over the years and of course with Sifu Steph himself. Another great benefit is the ability to work through your stresses while working out. The intensity of the work outs command your full attention and forces you to block out everything else that's going on for the duration of the training. Because of this I feel physically and mentally better and stronger after every work out. As I approach my 50's I feel better than I did in my 30s and that is in large part because of Sifu Steph and Patenaude Martial arts. Do yourself a favor and try it out for a week, it could change your life! More...

This place and the people in it have been nothing short of exceptional during my time here. I have been training for 4 and a half years as of now and I still think starting here was one of the best decisions of my life. I started only coming twice a week as a teen and as I started to enjoy it more and more, I started coming more and more often. Now, I never want to miss a session because I love it so much! Thank you to all the instructors and new friends that I have made here. Truly a special place and experience for me! More...

Awesome! The Patenaude family has always been highly dedicated and sharing of their teachings. It's a natural skill for Sifu Stephane to be always pushing and to help make the best out of people - you have to experience it for yourself!!

Sifu Stéphane is a true master of the arts. I was there, in the dojo, on St-Catherine Street, when he received his black sash. That was over 25 years ago. I have a lot of respect for this family and all the good they do for the community. I can honestly say that bringing your children to this school of arts, is one of the greatest gift you could ever give them. Simply because the lessons learned here are life lessons. More...

If your looking to get in shape, better yourself, become stronger physically and mentally, become more flexible, challenge yourself, push your limits, get in better shape, practice weapons, enroll your child in an anti-bullying program and fun kids classes, adults self-defense program, achieve your dream of a black belt or compete in the MMA octagon - whatever you maybe looking for - stop looking, and try Patenaude Martial arts. This school offers all kinds of classes for people of all ages, beginner or advance, just for fun, or for competition. This year is my 19th year of training at the Patenaude Martial Arts Orleans location. The training is like no other, a more-than welcoming atmosphere, that is family-like and where no one is judged. This school goes beyond just a martial art with kicks and punches, it teaches life lessons to believe in yourself, to not give up when the going gets tough, it teaches respect, self control, discipline, confidence, and much more. Sifu Stephane is the head instructor and has 35 + years of martial arts training, he is a fantastic instructor, mentor, coach, and has become a life-long friend. I highly recommend this school, as it has made me a life long student. Try out the free trial classes, you have nothing to lose, but everything to gain. More...

Orleans martial arts Patenaude kung fu has been an amazing experience, I always wanted to join a kung fu school since I was a child, I didnt have any idea about martial arts, Started looking for it a couple months ago being afraid of being rejected by my age and my poor knowledge, I first talked to Sifu Stephane, very kind guy who gave me an overall view about the program and the martial arts. My first class was great I met the rest of the staff very patient and kind people. Also very good for fitness and keep your self in shape, I highly recomend Orleans martial arts Patenaude.Decision you wont regret it. More...

I found Patenaude looking for a place to start kickboxing. To qualify, I'm not young and in great shape so I felt really self-conscious, but I feel so welcome that I truly comfortable here. Also, when I am not applying myself, someone *notices* and holds me accountable, just what a person getting back into activity really needs- kind encouragement! Also, they have lots of awesome side courses that are really interesting and helpful- if you are looking to "go deeper" then they are there for you then too. So if you want to try (especially with kids- Sifu is a GREAT teacher) or you're looking for community, I'd highly recommend. Aussi, ils parlent français ici. :) More...

From the moment you walk in to Patenaude Martial Arts, you are treated like family! Sifu Stephane's passion and enthusiasm are immediately apparent in every aspect of his family's art. Whether your goal is getting physically fit, self defense, MMA skills,self confidence, discipline, weapons, there is something to learn in the highly energetic and fun atmosphere! Personally, I have never felt more physically fit, confident, energetic and happy, than since I have been training here. It's not just a martial art, but learning a way to live your life to the fullest! A positive, never quit attitude is encouraged, and Sifu Steph and the instructor team always take the time to demonstrate techniques correctly, and are always willing to take extra time with students to help them understand. I very, very highly recommend Patenaude Martial Arts, for training in body, mind, and life! More...

The importance of family runs throughout this gym - respect and acceptance is prevalent everywhere you look. The staff are knowledgeable and patient, and the facilities are bright and clean. The workouts have a variety of intensity, so that everyone can make the most out of their efforts, without prohibiting someone from participating. More...

I've been doing Martial Arts for a long time, tried different places and different trainers, Sifu Stephane & his team are one of the best, he pays close attention to beginners, while caring for the advanced players to grow, they would always adjust the drills to suit the different levels present, different classes for different interests, from self defense to full contact UFC style, I always walk out from his classes satisfied with what I've learned and burnt

I was really scared to join because i wasn't really good at it. I was scared that i'll embarrass myself. At first it felt very intimidating because everyone was good, everyone seem to know what they were doing but i tried my best to do most of the challenges. All the teachers were very good at explaining their part. This class has showed me ways to protect myself. Everyone has been so patient with teaching me, although sometimes i just don't get it. I wouldn't be apart of this class if it wasn't for monique. She had made me feel comfortable around everyone in the class. She would tell me how fun the class is and how nice everyone is. For my experience, i enjoy this class a lot. I love the intensity, i love the hard work that everyone shows. I love the way sifu and the rest of the teachers encourages everyone to work harder, to push yourself, and to go above your expectations. I wanna work harder, push myself and to go even farther in this class. More...

What a great school to attend. Once you step inside this place, you feel welcome and part of the family. What awesome energy this gives me. I've made good friends and team mates not only at this school, but throughout the system. From Toronto to Belleville to Gatineau to Quebec City! Cant go wrong with joining this Team. Yes, Team. I would recommend Patenaude Martial Arts to anyone willing to learn a different style of Martial Arts, get healthy, feel great, enjoy mma or just want to be active. With energized teachers, a family oriented atmosphere, loyalty to their students and future in the sport/discipline, I truly believe you wont regret signing up. What can you lose.... beside a few inches?! Try it.. wont regret it. More...

Best MMA training! Amazing energy in the classes, great conditioning, striking, grappling, kickboxing & many more self defence and combat training methods! We practice our punches and kicks, with wrestling, takedowns, throws, sweeps, kick catches, even elbow and knee strikes. It does not only train you physically, but mentally as well. This is the best way to train the body/mind and allow yourself to build endurance, stamina & strength, all while enjoying every minute doing so! Sifu Steph and the team are great to be around and always in amazing spirits. It is such an positive way to end your day! Looking forward to many years ahead and growing to my full potential with the help of our great team at Patenaude Martial Arts! More...

I enrolled my daughter back in October of 2016 as she
Was having a bit of a hard time at the start of the new school year. After about a few months we noticed a huge change in her attitude and responsibilities. The team at Patenaude Martial Arts Orelans had a big role in that. They are a dynamic team of individuals that are always keeping their students in focus. plus, their Saturday morning parents kids class are one great workout for all! More...

this has been the best decision I ever made. Many years I tried going to the gym but never could keep myself motivated. At Patenaude I love it, the classes are great and you motivate eachother because you are always partnering up with someone. There is a true family feel as well. You do not get bored and the classes are different every time. It is a great work out and I would recommend it to anyone! More...

I started training here a few years ago, when I was 14. I remember telling myself after the very first class that "this was the place for me". The friendly atmosphere makes you feel like you're part of a family as soon as you step foot in the building, the instructors are knowledgeable, respectful and very friendly and are definitely there to help. The classes are dynamic and there is something there for everyone. I highly recommend to anyone and everyone to try this place out; you won't regret anything! More...

Chose to do something different for my son's 6th birthday; to change it up but also to see if my son (and my other kids) would like to get into this sport that was recommended for many different reasons. We were able to bring 19 friends - which we did!! .... and Sifu managed very well with all of them, each of them having a fantastic time...burning lots of energy! It was a quick set-up and clean-up which made that even better for me!! The result: later that evening, my son said he loved his birthday party so much, that for his 7th birthday he requested that 'Mama plans the exact same thing, same place with all the same friends.....'! I told him he didn't have to wait until next year if he wanted to go again. He asked if he could take some classes there now?' Which I am pretty sure will be be there within the spring season! I think that's pretty much a win-win, don't you! ;-D More...

Highly recommend Patenaude Martial Arts, I have been with the Patenaude's since 1999. I have achieved many accomplishments with my 15+ years of being there. It has taught me confidence, never giving up on goals, I have achieved the black belt, it has given me teaching oppurtunities and most importantly it has shaped me into the strong, confident, self-asserted woman I am today. This school has alot to offer, to anyone and everyone of all ages regardless of what goals you may have. The kids program is phenomenal; the teachers are fantastic, friendly, fun, funny, approachable, bilingual and CARING! You are not just another head in class, you become part of the family, part of the team. Kids will be taught many basic life skills that are important at a young age; respect, disciple, confidence, focus, team work, etc. For adult classes, street self defense techniques are shown, continuously encouraging students on never giving up, to keep going when the training becomes hard, teaching us valuable life lessons that are applicable and equally as important of being outside of class. MMA classes are also on the weekly schedule, where people with a more competive side, with goals of competing in the ring can be achieved. Patenaude Martial Arts is really a lifestyle and it's what it teaches students: self discipline, self control, and empowering the body as well as the mind. If you're looking for MMA program, a program for your child, to lose weight, get in shape, build strenght, have fun, get a black belt, learn self defense or just to simply try something new and exciting, Patenaude Martial arts is the place for whatever your goal may be!

i started going to Patenaude because my 3 year old was in the little dragons class. He loved it and I needed a little motivation to get back in shape. I get tonnes of support and encouragement from the teachers and my classmates, and maybe a needed jab when I have been slacking too. In addition to the motivation I get it is amazing to see people that have been doing this for a long time welcome new people, stopping their own workout to help others learn.
It's one of the few places I have been to that you are made to feel a part of the team no matter your skill level. Would encourage anyone to join us!

At first, I felt really insecure and hesitant to join the class because I didn't know anyone and I had no experience in Martial Arts besides watching Jackie Chan movies but in Patenaude Martial Arts, I was welcomed positively not only by Sifu Stephane but also each pupil in my class. I am able to learn combinations and techniques at my own pace and was attended to when I had difficulty executing them. Sifu Stephane also touches on spiritual learning and helps me with my goals and steps on how to achieve them. I'm almost 6 months in and I have made new friends, learn some techniques, and getting my daily exercise. It's definitely more than a hobby for me and I love this art very much. More...

I have wanted to get back into kickboxing for a while now and Patenaude Martial Arts was the first option that “popped” up on my google search. The first step was to walk through the door and try out a few classes. From the start, Sifu Stephane was very welcoming and encouraged me to come back. It’s always a bit scary and intimidating to join something new at first but everybody that I have met so far has been very friendly and welcoming which has made it easy and fun. This has been the best decision that I’ve made! I look forward to many years ahead and growing to my full potential with the help of the great team at Patenaude Martial Arts. I will definitely be recommending Patenaude Martial Arts! More...

I started training a few years ago at Patenaude martial arts after I signed up at the wellness expo. I thought it would be a great idea to support local business owners as I too have a small business in Orleans. I started the morning classes and immediately loved the energy and the group of people training. When I met Sifu Steph he demonstrated not only amazing classes that push you every time you train but he also reminds us to take care of ourselves. He teaches us lessons of self care, self defense, meditation and empowerment. He promotes a team and family environment and reminds us about respect for ourselves and others. These are values that are very important in our everyday lives and truly demonstrates how martial arts not only leads us in a healthy lifestyle. But reminds us how we should live. I'm very proud to be a part of the Patenaude team. Come and join us! It will change your life. More...

In the spring of 2017, while searching around Orleans for a local gym to get physically fit, I found a surprising gem: Orleans Patenaude Martial Arts, specializing in Kungfu. Warmly welcomed by the Sifu and a senior instructor, I soon started training. I quickly fell in love with this club, whose principles include a 'don't quit' attitude and a positive way of thinking and acting. One can find a full training menu: kungfu, kickboxing/MMA, grappling, body strength and conditioning, or general fitness. You can occasionally attend seminars and participate in one-of-a kind inter-school fight nights. All instructors here are friendly, helpful, and happy to accommodate individual needs. I strongly recommend this club to anyone seeking to be physically and mentally stronger, all while nurturing a positive attitude as a way of living through practicing martial-arts. More...

My son has been attending classes at Patenaude Martial Arts for less than a year and we could not be happier with this school. Every class is lots of fun and his is learning so much.

This is the third martial arts school that my son has tried and this really is the right place for him. The instructors are attentive and the classes are really geared to the kids. They pay special attention to the needs and recognize the different levels of all the kids in the class. There is emphasis and importance placed on fitness, focus and respect, but at the same time they make every class a fun experience for the kids.

If your looking for an awesome martial arts school to practice at, I personally advise you to check out Patenaude. It is said that many places just focus on the sash aspect of the training, but Patenaude focuses not only on your personal development as a student, but as a person. They try to teach life lessons such as: manners, respect and determination. So not only do they provide excellent self defence techniques and practices, but hey teach you values that will prepare you for life in unexpected ways. On top of all of this they embrace you in a way that makes you feel like you are part of a family. Not only are the teachers friendly but so are the students. Seldom do I feel like I’m being judged for my mistakes or my failures because everyone just views these as an opportunity to learn.Genuinely love doing this and I recommend this to anyone searching for a fun and disciplined past time!!

Beginning the Little Dragon's journeyA month ago we made the decision to try out the Little Dragons program at Patenaude Martial Arts Orleans. It's been smiles and thumbs up from our child ever since. The owner, Sifu Stéphane, knows his business and his passion to teach is palpable. He brings a positive and fun energy for very young kids to achieve fitness and focus every time. His instructors also show genuine interest in teaching the kids which is heart-warming for us, as parents.After an energetic, warm-up, Sifu usually has a brief discussion with the kids concerning martial arts values like respect, persistance, controlling emotions, then it's off to learn the art's particular skills, which may include kicks, punches and defense skills.For us, it's the respect our child is building on, whether from bowing, or TRYING to stand still and waiting for the next command, that is an important benefit. We know that with our collaboration it will carry over into school and at home. As for the fitness aspect, we can already see some improvement in our child's muscle control to punch and kick more properly and safely. Young kids are often like spaghetti when moving their bodies, at least our child is, and seeing the changes is so encouraging. As the old proverb goes ´It takes a village to raise a child.´Family, friends, teachers, doctors...and sometimes, a Sifu. Try Patenaude Martial Arts out yourselves! More...

I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND AND I'LL TELL YOU WHY.Patenaude Martial Arts Studio is definitely the right place for anyone of any age and of any level of experience (even zero experience). The students in PMA are dynamic and very friendly. Speaking of experience, I tend to be hesitant to ask for help when i'm struggling but here, class partners, teachers, and Sifu Stephane are always there to help properly execute a technique and explain why we do or not do things in certain ways. It's not exclusive to physical training but also spiritual/mental training. There are days where we tend to learn more about breathing properly, relaxing your body and mind, and learn how to calm yourself during a stressful situation (in a fight, for example). When I joined, I was thinking this is just going to be a hobby but it turns out, my heart is actually calling it as an essential part of my lifestyle. More...

THIS IS LIKE FAMILY, they keep you accountable, encourage you when you need it and congratulate you when you deserve it!Last summer my 3 year old wanted to learn kung-fu, I signed him up with Patenaude. My son LOVES it! They keep him focused and channel his energy! Soon after I joined the kickboxing classes, now I'm addicted. At 43, with two young, and very active boys, I need to find the energy to keep up. When I started I couldn't do one sit-up or crunch, now I can do sit-ups for a minute easily. I recently started running again, I was able to surpass 20 minutes without stopping on my first time out; last time I ran I was doing 5 and 1's at best!Most important I have the energy to keep up with my sons!

What a good experience this has turned out to be! 3 months ago I sat in my doctors office for my annual physical. She asked me how active I was? I replied "I used to be." At 61 years old I had become inactive for way too long. She wrote the word sedentary next to my name. I didn't like that. I hit the internet and searched fitness classes. Patenaude Fang Shen do popped up and I called.I arrived at my first class half expecting a macho atmosphere, but was pleased to meet a friendly staff as well as friendly participants of all ages..young and old.So what has happened? After 2 months I'm completing the 1/2 hour intensive classes without stopping. My daily energy is up. My sleeping has improved. I generally feel better. I look forward to my 3 times a week c!asses.Would I recommend Patenaude Fang Shen do? For everyone. More...

i have attempted many times in my life to go to the gym and get in shape. usually it ends up in getting bored or no longer motivated to do anything. Not when I joined Patenaude! Wow what a difference! After 5 months I am still enjoying it and love going to the classes. It is a friendly atmosphere and all the instructors are there to help but also the other people that come and work out, it really is a family feel. Everyone pushes you to go one step further and not give up, it is all about pushing yourself another step and getting better and in better shape each time. They have great 30 minute classes where it is more about conditioning and than you also have the classes where you learn more about the kickboxing. They have other martial arts classes as well but I do not participate in these. For me it is about getting in shape and loosing wait. And it works, after 3 months I lost 12 pounds and I feel great. and at 47 it gets harder to loose weight but this really works. Of course it is also about eating healthier but the exercise is the number one contributor! They also have classes for kids where they also learn discipline. It is great to watch these kids, i hope my son will be going in the next year or so!Overall amazing! I look forward to many more classes! More...

The Orleans Martial Arts Kung-Fu Patenaude is the first martial art school I’ve joined since I was in elementary school. I was looking for something to get me back in shape, something to help me gain empowerment as well as the chance to meet new people. I would say that I have the chance to gain all of these things with this location. On top of that, the school is great; it is very clean and welcoming. The staff and members are as friendly as you can get and a decent number of them are bilingual (French and English) which is a plus since my first language is French. They offer a good number of classes, even for a basic member, which isn’t common for schools now a days. Since I just finished school, I think the price for the service is incredible and totally worth it. The classes can be challenging physically, but there is no one to compare to then yourself. You are there to improve yourself and are there to learn. But even so, everybody is always very supportive and willing to help. It’s based on partnership so you always have the occasion to meet new people.It’s a great environment for children, the staff is always supportive towards them. They have multiple activities to keep them busy and running. I’ve only been there for a couple of weeks, but already I really like the atmosphere and would recommend it to anybody who is interested in learning a new martial art. More...

I love the patenaude martial arts program. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to get fit and have fun while doing it. I have been in the program for around 6 months and it has been a fun and enjoy doing it. The class teaches you many things which has a wide variety of items you learn and how to properly do things, enjoy doing it and wanting to come back day after day. I would definitely recommend everyone trying this at least once, after you learn the basics you’ll have a blast and I can guarantee that! For other kung-fu or karate camps or classes I always found them boring, not fun/entertaining, too easy, trying to take your money etc.. The patenaude martial arts program is different. They care, they put effort and time into helping students learn and master the skills they need to master the art of kung for or Fang Shen Do. Their team is filled with awesome and nice instructors. I don’t really have much else to say other than this is the best self defense class that you could ever go to or ever experience. I recommend going to the class unlike everyone who ever comes to the class. For example, there was a new student who came to the fang shen do *street self defense* today, she knew nothing. I taught her how to do this and she had a blast and she’s coming back! But don’t worry, there’s a FREE 7 day RISK FREE trial/test that you can do test out and see if you like it *which I guarantee you will* and if you don’t like it, no worries, you can cancel anytime. In conclusion, you should come on down here at Lancaster and have a blast and never regret it! Hope to see you soon, your fellow martial artist! More...

My now 13 year old son and I both joined the Orleans Patenaude Martial Arts training program over 3 years ago and we love it! This is a family run business that truly does what it takes to make you feel that you are part of the family as well. We love the firm but flexible approach to a student's training and the willingness to take a little extra time when needed to explain or demonstrate techniques that may be found difficult. The team at Patenaude strive for excellence but they also make sure to have fun along the way! Over the last three years, I have observed children improve their concentration and focus dramatically and witnessed adults increase their strength, stamina, and flexibility resulting in firmer, leaner and far more confident individuals.

My son and I have been training in Fang Shen Do for over over 8 years. I like that it is a modern martial art that evolves, not one stuck in age-old ways. Intensity and fitness over endless techniques just makes sense in my book. Right from the white belt you are shown advanced stuff, participate in awesome seminars, weapons, fight camps and more.I find that the system is a platform for growth, self-protection, true fitness, friendships and getting to the next level. I also credit the school for giving my son top fitness and appreciation of hard work.Many thanks to all sifus! More...

Sifu Steph really know how to push you to the top of your game. It's a full blown workout from once you start the warm-up stations to the end of class. There's plenty of options for the type of class you want to participate in. From Fang Shen Do Kung Fu, MMA Sanshou, Cardio Kickboxing, Little Dragons (Kids class), Weapons classes and multiple seminars. If you enjoy MMA like I do, imagine yourself having the opportunity to do a match in one of the inter-school fight night events! I strongly recommend Patenaude Martial Arts Orleans for your Family.

Sifu Stephane, and his team, approach their students with a kind of quiet confidence, mixed with extensive knowledge, humour and a drive to see their students attain their maximum potential, both in the martial arts and in life. Patenaude martial arts teaches to the whole person, not just a part. And they teach for life, not just for today. It is a quality over quantity approach that is rarely seen. More...
