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.

Does Your Child Need A Supportive, Educational, and Fun Activity?

Learning Martial Arts Teaches Young Kids Life Skills While They Have Fun

Young children are curious and active – and they sometimes have difficulty learning to control their bodies and their behavior. They crave structure and thrive in an environment that’s supportive, educational, and fun.

Does your young child

struggle with these things?

They struggle to maintain control of their movements and may be unintentionally destructive.

They find it difficult to focus on a task or to see it through to the end.

They have a hard time sharing their belongings and getting along with other kids.

Parenting young children is a real challenge.

You must balance their natural inquisitiveness and high energy with trying to teach them the basic skills they need for school and life.

Discipline, sharing, and self-control are all things they need to learn to be successful.

The ideal setting is one that’s got some structure but works with kids at their current developmental level. If they have fun while they’re learning, they’ll be more likely to retain those lessons and learn the skills they need.

Results and growth with every class!

Studying martial arts is ideal for young children. It provides them with an outlet for their energy. But, it also teaches them about respect, discipline, and other core values that will go with them beyond the dojo. Junior martial arts classes teach kids to control their movements and behavior, and they’ll learn social skills and interaction at the same time.

Studying Martial Arts Builds Physical Coordination and Control

Young children who learn martial arts find out quickly that each movement must be intentional. They learn to control their movements to the best of their ability.

They also practice hand-eye coordination and learn about their bodies. That means they’ll be less likely to be unintentionally destructive.

Young Martial Arts Students Learn How to Focus

Getting young kids to pay attention can feel like an impossible task. The structure of our martial arts classes shows kids the importance of focus and teaches them by having them apply it to easily-achievable tasks.

The focus they learn in the dojo is something they’ll take home – and into the classroom. That’s why kids who study martial arts tend to be good students, too.

Martial Arts Helps Kids Learn to Deal with Frustration

Martial arts instruction requires students to pursue goals to earn new belts. Young kids can easily become frustrated when they don’t get what they want, but studying martial arts helps them learn the power of persistence.

The physical activity in our classes also helps kids manage stress and anxiety by allowing them to burn it off in a safe and constructive way.

Kids Who Study Martial Arts Learn Good Sportsmanship

Losing is not anybody’s idea of fun, but we all need to learn how to accept a defeat gracefully and move on. We teach students that losing is part of life – and it’s what you do after you lose that tells people who you are.

Even though martial arts is an individual sport, we cultivate an environment of supportive teamwork where students root for one another.

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.

FAQs

My child still has temper tantrums and I’m worried about how they’ll behave in school. Can studying martial arts help?

Yes, it can. We help children learn the importance of emotional control and respect for others. These are lessons that will help them in the classroom, too.

Will studying martial arts help my child learn how to interact with others and share?

Yes. Even though studying martial arts is an individual pursuit, we teach kids to learn in a collaborative environment with an emphasis on sharing, cooperation, and teamwork.

My child zones out in class and misses important instructions. Can taking martial arts classes help them do a better job of focusing?

Yes. Part of martial arts training is teaching kids to be mindful of themselves and their surroundings. They must focus to succeed in class, and once they learn to do it, they’ll be able to do the same thing at school.

My child is out of control physically, and can be very destructive. How will studying martial arts help?

Martial arts instruction focuses on hand-eye coordination, control, and strength. As kids learn basic moves and then advance, they learn how to control their bodies and movements.

My child gives up easily when frustrated. I want them to learn persistence. Can your classes help?

Yes. It’s common for students to require more than one attempt to earn a new belt. We teach them that trying is the most important thing – and that persistence pays off.

My child is disrespectful to me and to other caregivers. How can studying martial arts change that?

Respect is at the core of everything we do in the dojo. Kids who study martial arts must respect their instructors and fellow students, and we find that they learn to respect parents, teachers, caregivers, and siblings at the same time.
