P.K.S.A. of Dearborn
James and Olga Howard
1844 Grindley Park
Dearborn, Mich. 48124
Discipline. Respect. Focus. Confidence. These are just a few of the principles that are cultivated at P.K.S.A. of Dearborn’s dojang on a weekly basis. These strong principles provided the late Joshua Howard, at the age of 18, the strength and knowledge to build P.K.S.A. of Dearborn from a small community program to the successful karate school it has become today. James and Olga Howard, Joshua Howard’s parents, currently own and operate P.K.S.A. of Dearborn, while their daughter, Lisa Howard, a third degree black belt, serves as head instructor. P.K.S.A. of Dearborn belongs to Professional Karate Schools of America (P.K.S.A. Karate) founded and operated by Master Richard Collins Jr., a sixth degree black belt. Approximately 32 families gather on a daily basis to learn the Korean form of karate known as Tang Soo Do. This professionally operated, positive, family-friendly environment encourages parents to train alongside their children. Aside from Tang Soo Do classes, P.K.S.A. of Dearborn offers a Stranger Awareness program, a Little Ninjas program, various weapons classes, and sparring classes. P.K.S.A. of Dearborn is the proud dojang home of young national champion Mariah Kovalchik. All ability levels are welcomed and encouraged.

To Detect, Deter and Report! Since 2009 this has been the guiding principle of K-9 Patrol LLC. Starting with security at the Arab American National Museum and patrolling car lots in Wayne, K-9 Patrol Security Co. is a small veteran-owned company dedicated to these three actions. To spot many types of safety issues and ensure the safety of client property and persons is the goal of their detection service. With a very strong visual presence on client property and accurate timely reporting, K-9 Patrol has had great success and growth. Few security companies believe in the strength of crime deterrence that is the focus at K-9 Patrol. Their level of visibility and ability to provide great customer service to government contracts and small business concerns at a very competitive price make us the choice of companies like Livernois Vehicle Development Co. and Renu Recycling.
