Austin, TX - Austin Karate Academy
Even if you aren't part of one of the families that attend the school, you are considered family. We have a very supportive environment, and push each other to excel. Even though our art does not focus on competition, our personal work towards excellence help us to be fierce competitors at invitation, regional, and world tourneys. Often placing in all sections and all ages/levels. We train, we spar, we learn, we have class outtings monthly just to hang out. Everyone is pretty even tempered, but still rowdy enough to go at it when it's time to put on the pads. We stick pretty close to curriculum, but as Tang Soo Do is open to other areas of training combat Hapkido and other self defense techniques are incorporated into training sessions.
