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.

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 any of this

sound familiar?

Sitting at work takes up the majority of your day, and you feel the need to do something about it.

Typical forms of exercise don’t really work for you. They’re too demanding or painful, and they tire you out just thinking about them.

Nagging joint issues make simple activities like walking around a chore.

Aging is an unavoidable aspect of life

...but that doesn’t mean you can’t do it gracefully

Tai Chi is a low impact, easy-to-start form of exercise that’s perfect for men and women of all ages, shapes, and sizes. Don’t be fooled by thinking this is your typical martial arts practice. Tai Chi classes are less about self-defense, fighting, and intensity, and more about health, inner peace, and tranquility.

The flowing motions of Tai Chi will invigorate your mind and body, waging war on the years of stress and tension you’ve allowed to build up.

Feel the stress and tension melt away

Stress and anxiety can actually turn your life upside down. It can take years to fully recover from a major incident. I think it takes most people a lot longer – maybe even a lifetime.You don’t want this to happen to you. Getting ahead of your stress means slowing down and doing something to counteract years of mounting troubles.The aches, pains, and tension you feel are your body’s way of crying out for help. It’s desperate for a break and some tender, loving care.

Health Benefits Galore

For thousands of years, people have been invigorated and healed by the simple practice of Tai Chi.

There are so many health benefits Tai Chi has to offer. See for yourself some of the more notable ones…

  • Improves mood and leads to lower levels of depression
  • Soothes stress, eases anxiety, and prohibits unnecessary worries
  • Reduces inflammation and eases achy joints and muscles
  • Increases energy levels and stamina
  • Greater aerobic capacity and muscle strength
  • Lowers blood pressure and improves heart health
  • Enhances flexibility, balance, and agility

Almost sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? Well it isn’t. And that’s the wonderful power of Tai Chi classes.

The Feel of a Yoga Practice

Just because Tai Chi is low-impact, doesn’t mean it’s for wimps or sissies. Tai Chi offers the allure of a martial arts class, but with the feel of a yoga practice. In simpler terms, be a badass while healing your body.

Many beginner and expert students love the peace and relaxation of the flowing Tai Chi movements. Others love and appreciate the martial arts side of Tai Chi, more commonly known as “push-hands”.

Tai Chi classes are unique in that they evolve with the student’s comfort level and goals. All levels of Tai Chi offer the healing and relaxation benefits for your mind, body, and soul.

Low-Impact Training

After a long, hard day’s work, most people are too exhausted to hit the gym or go for a run. Furthermore, those sorts of intense workouts can be a nightmare for older folks or those with bone or joint issues.

Tai Chi is considered a low-impact form of training that’s appropriate for almost anyone. Individuals who are obese, pregnant, or just plain out-of-shape can immediately pick up Tai Chi and experience its benefits.

Even people who would consider themselves above average in terms of fitness level have plenty to gain from this low-impact style of training.

Tai Chi is the only low-impact exercise that has a proven history for reversing the aging process. Not even yoga can compare.

Positively Charged Community

When you walk into your first Tai Chi class, one of the first things you will feel is the energy of the atmosphere.

We’re a tight-knit, positively charged community and are very welcoming to prospective and new students of all kinds.

Tai Chi is ultimately about increasing happiness through its healing movements and motions. Our classes provide a loving and healthy environment to meet people and make life-long friends with other like-mind individuals. We truly offer a place where love, peace, and happiness intertwine to create a deep, joyous feeling for all who attend.

I absolutely love AKKA it has great instructors that care for you and want tor be apart of. For me personally it is a great stress relief and I couldn't of gone to a better Dojo I love it and I intend to stay here. It's a great place for kid and adults!

FAQs

What are the health benefits of Tai Chi?

We’ve already covered most of the health benefits above, but here they are again compiled for you.

Regular practice nourishes and rejuvenates the mind, body, and soul. In a physical sense, Tai Chi strengthens the lower body and improves balance. It promotes good posture and improves joint flexibility, making it easier to stand and move around.

The flowing movements of Tai Chi and the shifting of weight improves blood flow throughout the body, which means a healthier heart.

As you learn to relax physically through the Tai Chi practice, you also relax your mind, easing the stress of work, relationships, family, and life. Coping with stress is a major benefit that attracts most people to the ancient art of Tai Chi.

Who can learn Tai Chi?

Students of all ages, shapes, sizes, and abilities have participated in and enjoyed our classes. Tai Chi is considered a low-impact form of exercise, meaning it is very mild and soothing to practice.

The basic and essential movements of Tai Chi are taught and practiced in slow motion. We provide real-time instruction and body adjustments so that you can feel the movements how they are meant to be felt.

Almost anyone can come in and learn the Tai Chi practice with optimism and desire.

How long does it take to learn the Tai Chi movements?

Typically, it takes anywhere from 20 to 30 hours of class to learn and memorize all the basic movements. This depends greatly on the schedule of your teaching location. The benefits of Tai Chi, however, are felt immediately. As you begin to practice the flowing movements of Tai Chi, your body will start the healing process, and you will experience many of the benefits listed above.

Long after you master the beginner movements, your Tai Chi practice will continue to evolve with you. You may continue to study at deeper and deeper levels, further increasing its benefits, and embodying the Tai Chi principles for life.

What if I have health problems or physical ailments?

Tai Chi, when properly instructed and practiced, can be safely and effectively performed by anyone capable of standing and walking around. The Tai Chi movements can and should be followed at your individual aptitude and always adjusted to your current level of health.

It may be comforting to know that plenty of scientific research has shown that Tai Chi has proven beneficial to those suffering from most chronic illnesses, including heart disease, arthritis, and diabetes. Here is a link to just one of the many studies done on Tai Chi.

If you have any physical ailment or disability it is important to consult a medical professional before beginning your Tai Chi practice.

I’m thinking about buying a Tai Chi video or book, will it be able to help?

I’ve personally purchased a Tai Chi for beginners video some years ago. While it was very informative and instructional, there is really nothing that can replace learning Tai Chi in person from an experienced instructor.

Videos and books also lack the community feeling that Tai Chi classes have to offer, which is a significant motivating factor to actually getting up and practicing.
