The owners care about each person as an individual. Confidence, growth, and perseverance are the cornerstones of their practice. My family has rarely had such a genuine experience.

I signed my 3 boys up in 2000 because I wanted them to learn self discipline and have more confidence. I joined a month later to share the experience. All 3 of my sons achieved the rank of Black Belt. One started at age 6 and earned 6 Black Belts. One earned the rank of 4th degree Black Belt. They all grew to be better men because of AKKA. They also went through the Boy Scout program. That is the 1- 2 punch of character building. I am still a student, teacher and proud member of this fine organization.

My 11 year old son was being picked on at school. I was looking for a place where he could gain self confidence but yet also balance that learning with self control. I was fortunate to find that with at AKKA Olathe Martial Arts. A year after my son started, my 6 year old daughter started and I didn't want to be left out. During our black belt tests my daughter lagged and struggled during a run. One of our fellow students (another student's father) picked her up on his back and carried her make to the finish as we were all determined to finish together. There's amazing comradery in the classes at AKKA. My children have grown into confident and successful young adults. The discipline and confidence they gained training was a big contributor. My thanks to all our instructors.

The folks at AKKA Karate USA Olathe are top notch. I was greeted with a smile and felt at home right away. My long association with Mr Williams has always been one of encouragement and respect. He will go out of his way to be the kind of man that you can count on in any circumstance. I strongly believe that training at AKKA Karate USA Olathe will be a very profitable experience. Go Today and sign up.

AKKA has been a great addition for our son. Offering learning and discipline at the same time is what we were looking for. The instructors have been phenomenal at handling the kids which are all in the same age group but may have different skill levels allowing the kids to not only focus on improvement for themselves, but helping other kids learn too! Mr. Bradberry, Ms. Green and Mr. Clay have all shown their skills and knowledge of the sport which makes us comfortable and inspired that our child will be progressing at a pace they can handle. We enjoy being a part of the AKKA Karate group!

I have been a part of AKKA OLATHE for at least 6 years and my daughter trained there for about 3 years as well. The Instructors are top notch and truly care about everyone they teach.

I have not been able to train as much lately due to changes with my work schedule, but have honestly loved every minute that I have spent there.
I think this is a great school for anyone of any age to consider. If you want to get in better shape, build confidence or just learn more about self defense and martial arts, you should check them out!

My son & I have been a part of the AKKA Karate Olathe family for nearly 2 years. But I just started training at the beginning of the year. I have since experienced for myself the amazing in class instruction by some pretty awesome instructors, but training doesn't stop there. They have instructional videos available for you to utilize outside of class to help perfect your techniques, because of them I felt more confident when it came to testing for my next belt. With diverse class times, i'm sure you'll have no trouble finding a time that will fit your schedule!!

We have been part of the AKKA family for about 1.5 years. My sons initially joined after attending a birthday party and I fell in love with the staff. I can't say enough great things about the staff, they are supportive, fun and passionate about their jobs. Since then, I have joined and was surprised by how much I love it. Being an introvert, I was terrified to try something that put me in the spotlight but Karate has given me the confidence to come out of my shell. AKKA is not just any dojo, it is truly a family.

I don't currently attend but, I've always wanted to come back to my karate family. My father and I started together back in 1999 when I was about 5 years old. I stayed with it till I was about 16 and I thought I had better things to do. I'm now 24, wishing I had never left in the first place. The instructors and the atmosphere that they provide for the students, was above all one of the BEST experiences of my life. It wasn't just a place to go learn karate at. It was a home away from home, another place where I always felt welcomed. If there was an option for more than 5 stars, I would most definitely be trying to put 100 stars.

I've been a student of this school on and off for over 18 years now. The staff is knowledgeable and are great with kids. My son tested for his junior first degree black belt when I tested for my second degree black belt and those are memories that I'll always treasure. If you're looking for a true, well rounded, family oriented, martial arts school who doesn't put an emphasis on pushing through people to their next rank, regardless of whether or not they actually know the material, then this is the place for you.

The Positive Effects of Martial Arts for a Child in School

Grade school can be quite the experience for any child. It is a place where a child not
only learns academically but one where a child must learn to socialize and function in
the world. Unfortunately, there are a lot of negative experiences that a child may
have when going through school. Whatever those experiences may be, it would be a
good idea to have a child participate in martial arts classes. Doing so will give them
the tools they need to survive the school experience. The benefits associated with
taking martial arts classes are essential for them to be able to have a positive
experience in school.

Helps them earn better grades in school
Getting good grades is reflective of a child’s comprehension of the material. But, it is
also indicative of their discipline and responsibility traits. Through martial arts,
students are to learn the fundamentals of stretch and physical routines. They also
learn to become disciplined with practice and keeping up with their cleanliness of
uniforms. Children learn how to be punctual and can focus their daily thoughts on the
tasks at hand. Thus, being able to exhibit these positive traits will translate to better
grades as schooling requires the proficiency of these characteristics.

Gives them the confidence to stand up to bullies
Bullying is a very prominent and unfortunate experience that many children will
either witness or become victims of in their lifetimes. Being a part of martial arts can
give children the strength and confidence that they need to stand up to these
negative individuals. Not only will they learn about self-defense strategies, they will
be able to feel assertive and courageous. Possessing self-confidence is the number
one way for a child to be able to stand up for him/herself in any threatening
situation. Through martial arts, they will learn that not all conflicts have to be
physical. They will possess the mature mindset to tackle any conflict with assurance
and pride.

Gives them the ability to make friends
Having friends and keeping them can be the big difference between a positive and
negative school experience for children. They will latch onto people who share
common interests with them and feel devastated when those relationships disappear.
However, for children who regularly practice martial arts, they have a different
capacity to make and keep friends in their circle. Besides making friends in the
martial arts classes themselves, children are able to easily socialize and collaborate
with other students at school. They instill a lot of the same discipline and traits they
learn from martial arts in their everyday lives. For instance, they may be first to
initiate a conversation with quiet students because they feel confident in themselves to do so.

Being a part of something special such as martial arts can be greatly impactful for children. Especially when it comes to school, children can gain invaluable skills and behaviors that will allow them to have more successful experiences in social settings. Although school is meant to teach them about a variety of things, having martial arts as a supplement can significantly affect the way they approach schooling and their overall experiences.
