Great place to workout, learn, and grow as a person. Started the school in February 2016 and have been so happy to be a part of the TKA family. Very welcoming environment! Excellent instructors that will meet you at any level and give everything they have to get you to your goals! Awesome place!

Both of my kids attend Texas kickboxing academy and they love it. The instructors are very knowledgeable and take their time to really teach the kids. They always have extra activities going on aside from the regular scheduled class. My husband and I have attended these special classes and we had such a good time. They will also work with you in regards to payments. Definitely recommend you check them out.

Amazing staff, great workout and an amazing attention to service that is unmatched in Houston. This place helped me get in the best shape of my life!

There are benefits to be gained here beyond just learning the proper form to kick and punch. The Respect, Honor and Discipline are not just things kids learn in the kids classes but also great things for people in business.

I am not only a life long Martial Artist but also a life long believer in the benefits of the mental toughness that is gained here.

Been training here for about 3yrs now and the one word that pops up in my head when I think about this place is amazing. The atmosphere in here is great, everybody from the staff to the students are the friendliest and kindest people you’ll ever meet. The training is great and it helped get me into the best shape of my life. I couldn’t have asked for a better school.

Why You Can (And Should) Start Learning Martial Arts Later in Life

In the western world, particularly the United States, martial arts tends to be defined by stereotypes: People who train are either eight year olds learning Karate kicks, or bloodthirsty brawlers who hope to compete in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. But the notions that define mainstream popular conceptions of the martial arts aren’t true, and there are plenty of reasons why normal, well-adjusted adults can benefit from beginning their pugilistic journeys later in life. And you don’t have to bow alongside a fifth grader if you decide to explore the martial arts past your 30th birthday.

Training gives you tangible goals

Kids train martial arts for various reasons, such as building self-esteem and defense against bullies, but a lot of the time, their training is an after school activity that’s tantamount to daycare. At the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) school where I’ve trained the last eight years, many kids come and go, and only a few stick with the sport seriously enough to pursue it on a competitive level as teens and later adults.

But training martial arts is a practice where tangible rewards come based on merit. If you decide to train in a discipline that’s based on a belt ranking—BJJ, Judo, Taekwando, Karate, and many other martial arts use belt systems—you might find extra incentive in leveling up. Plus, in certain martial arts, such as BJJ, which has a robust competitive circuit, you can train to compete. Chasing medals and competitive accolades can feel like catnip to some martial artists, and maybe you’ll find that the challenge of competition adds a thrilling sense of meaning to your life.

Other than that, though, various grappling martial arts and other striking disciplines such as boxing and Muay Thai (Thai kickboxing), can whip you into fantastic shape. Many people struggle to find an enticing means of exercise once they reach adulthood, but martial arts give you reason to keep coming back, even if you’re getting your ass kicked—because you’re learning and improving with each minute spent in the gym.

You’ll build community

Sometimes, adults find it difficult to build community outside of traditional social venues. When it comes down to it though, there’s only so much time you can dedicate to hanging out in bars before the presumable community you’re building crumbles without alcohol.

Personally speaking, I’ve met so many interesting people who I’d never have the privilege of knowing if not for my foray into grappling and striking. It’s easier to get to know someone when you’re learning together and pushing each other to become better with each passing training session. If you’re similarly dedicated to a craft as someone else, you’ll invariably spend a lot of time together and potentially form strong bonds.
