AKA is an amazing place for your child to experience positive self-growth in a great environment. Both our kids have learned valuable life lessons as they progress and strive to move up in rank and skill level. Master Mukherjee is amazing and has a great intuitive understanding of children as they try something challenging in a communal environment. All kids are different and he takes the right approach to bring out the best effort in each one. More experienced students who have been in the program for years are intimately involved in assisting the kids learn forms and techniques. Parents of kids are welcome to sign up with the kids and go through the process together.

What a great place to instill confidence, coordination, athleticism, and respect in your child. Our daughter has been training at AKA for almost 10 years (from 5 year old Tiny Tiger to 2nd degree black belt) and has loved every minute.

My son has been attending austin karate since he was 5 years old and a white belt. He is now 11 years old and a blue belt and on his road on becoming a black belt. He wanted to quit many times but stuck with it with some encouragement from parents. He loves it and loves teaching the younger belts. He looks forward to class every time he goes. The instructors are helpful and encouraging. My son is more disciplined and takes pride in being a part of AKA.

My 2 daughters and I have been part of AKA family for quite some time. They teach not only martial arts, but also good manners, mutual respect, leadership skills and fitness. It is a family like environment. The instructors are kind and friendly. From my own experience as an adult student I can say that you don't have to be strong or in a good shape to get started. You just need to be brave and determined to get started and rest will follow you. Thanks Mr. Mukherjee and Ms. Carla for the push I needed. Great place and I highly recommend for you and your children.

Top Four Benefits of Working out With a Loved One

There are few things quite like working out with a partner or spouse – a loved one of any sort.
No matter type of martial arts you both practice, there are some benefits to exercising
together. From perfecting your form to keeping each other motivated, you’ll find them here
Read on to find out more.

1) You can keep each other motivated
One of the most difficult things about an exercise regimen of any kind is sticking to it. You
might be tempted to take one day off, and that leads to a pattern of skipped practices and
classes. Working out with your loved one can keep you both motivated. You won’t be tempted
to stay on the couch together when you both want to practice your karate or kickboxing
moves.

2) You have an automatic martial arts training partner
Even if you’re actively taking martial arts classes, you still need to practice your moves. And
what better to do so than with your partner? The two of you can go over what you’ve learned
in class together and treat each other as training partners. If you’re on different levels, you
can still make this work, since you’ll be learning from each other as you go along.

3) It’s easy to set up workout times since you know each other’s schedules
Another great thing about practicing martial arts with your loved one is the fact that you
know each other’s schedules. You can set up your combined workout times a week or two in
advance, and if you need to reschedule, then you won’t have to worry about playing phone
tag. Having a set schedule can keep you both on track.

4) Workouts will be much more fun
Everyone loves spending time with their spouse or partner. Usually, that time consists of
relaxing in front of the television, cooking meals together, or even having a date night. A
combined martial arts workout can be just another thing that the two of you do together.
You’ll have plenty of fun together. When both of you enjoy spending time on the sparring floor
together, your relationship – and your martial arts skills – will grow stronger.
There are four clear benefits to working out with your loved one, plus some additional ones
not covered here in detail. Your martial arts skills will improve since you will look forward to
your practices. You’ll also have more fun while doing so, and nothing makes a workout better
than this. Between the additional motivation, the set times, and many other benefits, you’ll
become a better martial artist in no time.
