Aaron Ruelas

Instructor at Personal Achievement Martial Arts

1st Degree Black Belt

Also known as Mr. Ruelas, but Mr. AARON is just easier. I’m a father of two boys that I trained with here at P.A.M.A for 5 years now when we were introduced to martial arts through the after school program with Stott Elem. where we worked hard to earn our Black Belts and continue our training. I enjoy Snowboarding, Fly Fishing, Fly tying, Hiking, Camping, and anything that keeps me moving.  Originally from the VA area, I moved to CO in 2001 to escape the busy DC Area, to teach snowboarding at Copper Mtn. for a season that turned into 3 years teaching. So I decided to stay here in this beautiful state for a little more laid back life. But since I have started working here at P.A.M.A. I couldn’t be happier to work with such an Amazing Team and to see all of the children progress from beginners to confident leaders while having fun doing it. I know that me and my boys have enjoyed every minute of it.
