In 2015, PMA instructors Kristin DiFrancesco and Jan Marie Reyes began competing as "Team PMA". Their success kindled the desire to start the PMA Competion Team for the 2016 competition season, and so the team was born. Team membership is limited and members must try out for a spot on the team. Tryouts are held several times during the year. For more information please contact one of the coaches. Current coaches are: Master Kristin DiFrancesco, Jorge Aguilar and Asst. Coach Kaitlyn Hamilton.

They can be reached through the school (PMA) or the team's Facebook page "Plano Martial Arts Competition Team"
