I originally joined Texas Kickboxing Academy for the love of the sport. My original intentions were to learn the martial arts and further understand a sport I feel is amazing. After joining TKA and beginning my journey, I found out just how much martial arts can impact a life. It has helped me develop a “don’t give up attitude” and become more disciplined. I am happy to see the positive changes martial arts can have on a person, from the smallest child to the oldest adult.
