Passion Dedication Commitment

Martial arts, when trained under a dedicated master, teach self discipline and leadership skills. That's exactly what has happened for Indi at AKA and Master Mukherjee. I never felt the need to push my kids into any leadership camps as they train at AKA where they are encouraged to lead, help, and support each other all the time. This whole journey of a white to black belt will mold your children into natural leaders clubbed with empathy and self-discipline. When you are part of WTSDA (World Tang Soo Do Association), no matter where you are, you are always accepted with the same fervour. As soon as shelter-in-place was announced, Austin Karate Academy moved virtual. AKA's ability to operate in this new normal is evident from the fact that we actually accomplished testing for promotion to next level belts with the same vigour. I also would like to share this vital point I tell my kids often: Master Mukherjee along with his other teaching staff have full-time jobs. Yet, they never look or sound exhausted when they are at AKA training their students. That passion, dedication, and commitment is what our children need as a take-home lesson

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.

The Ultimate New Years Resolution – Austin Martial Arts

The 2019 New Year is here, and with thousands of goals and resolutions in sight as well, 2019 is the year you should try something new!

Martial arts is an established system that can better the entirety of your being.

Whether you need mental benefits like furthering your discipline muscle, physical benefits like getting in shape, or maybe you’re just looking to make some new friends; martial arts is for you.

3 Austin Martial Arts Benefits
Physical

The most common New Year’s resolution you will hear is to get in better shape.

The physical benefits from martial arts are obvious.

Martial arts will get you in shape in a way you find fun. Your body gets more comfortable with itself, so you have better control over your physical abilities as well.

Needless to say, arming yourself with the self defense tactics from martial arts makes you better equipped to deal with some of the more dangerous physical obstacles in life.

Really, martial arts is more than just physical improvement.

Mental

Looking for more discipline, focus, and awareness?

There are several martial arts benefits, but the greatest is the mental toughness.

Martial arts helps connect your mind with your brain. It helps your mind gain the necessary control it needs to do this. It helps you find comfort in stressful situations. Maybe you want to be more adventurous, less scared of the world, or more adjusted to your own body?

It’s more than just kicking and punching. The spiritual benefits are plenty. There has always been a strong connection between the zen world and martial arts. This mental improvement can help you deal with your anxiety, your depression, and any other negative mental stress or that is plaguing your day to day.

Social

The social benefits of martial arts are often overlooked.

Maybe you’ve gotten in with the wrong crowd, and have decided that you need to add fresh faces to your life. Maybe you just need some new friends.

The martial arts community is one of the friendliest, most supportive, and inspiring groups of people you will ever find. It’s a great place to make lifelong friends and relationships.

You will find that the martial arts world is fascinating on it’s own, and that you could spend a whole lifetime indulging in some of its pleasantries.

You will get addicted to the lifestyle and your new friends will be able to empathize.

Why just pick one New Year’s resolution this year when you can be apart of something that covers so much more than just one improvement?
This new year, you could be smarter, healthier, calmer, and happier.
