We have both of our daughters in AKA and are seeing a wonderful transition in their focus and discipline, even at home. Each Sensei is amazing in their own way and we thank each one of them for their dedication to each student.

A great place to learn karate. The curriculum is firm yet not too serious for little ones and they keep it fun. I have nothing but good things to say about the staff and the curriculum.

I just wanted to say how AWESOME AKA is! My son, Dane has always struggled with finding the right 'ball sport' and never seems to want to continue. Since coming to karate, he has NEVER said he didn't want to go! Dane struggles with embarrassment and being teased and karate has given him so much more confidence in himself! Sensi Steve is amazing and the members on his team are so patient, fun, and we love that every class is different! Dane just got his yellow belt and still cannot stop smiling! I think.....I KNOW he will continue to practice here.

My 13 yr old son wanted to start a martial arts. After some research he wanted to try the 'trial' at Arizona Karate Academy. He was hooked after he first class. The first time the owner met us, he knew us by name, after having​ only spoken to us once by phone. Very impressed. The owner makes it a priority to know each student individually. The other senseis are also good, kind and personable, yet they teach us discipline and respect. They correct with encouragement and take the time to walk around and give individual pointers.
Emily at the desk is very friendly, very helpful and patient with my family with our many questions.
Plus AKA teaches life skills. Skills about confidence, respect hard work and perseverance. Things we all need, but I especially want my kids to learn.
Now my 8 yr old son wants to join the same Karate studio and I'm considering it for myself.

Top Four Benefits of Working out With a Loved One

Top Four Benefits of Working out With a Loved One

There are few things quite like working out with a partner or spouse – a loved one of any sort.
No matter type of martial arts you both practice, there are some benefits to exercising
together. From perfecting your form to keeping each other motivated, you’ll find them here
Read on to find out more.

1) You can keep each other motivated
One of the most difficult things about an exercise regimen of any kind is sticking to it. You
might be tempted to take one day off, and that leads to a pattern of skipped practices and
classes. Working out with your loved one can keep you both motivated. You won’t be tempted
to stay on the couch together when you both want to practice your karate or kickboxing
moves.

2) You have an automatic martial arts training partner
Even if you’re actively taking martial arts classes, you still need to practice your moves. And
what better to do so than with your partner? The two of you can go over what you’ve learned
in class together and treat each other as training partners. If you’re on different levels, you
can still make this work, since you’ll be learning from each other as you go along.

3) It’s easy to set up workout times since you know each other’s schedules
Another great thing about practicing martial arts with your loved one is the fact that you
know each other’s schedules. You can set up your combined workout times a week or two in
advance, and if you need to reschedule, then you won’t have to worry about playing phone
tag. Having a set schedule can keep you both on track.

4) Workouts will be much more fun
Everyone loves spending time with their spouse or partner. Usually, that time consists of
relaxing in front of the television, cooking meals together, or even having a date night. A
combined martial arts workout can be just another thing that the two of you do together.
You’ll have plenty of fun together. When both of you enjoy spending time on the sparring floor
together, your relationship – and your martial arts skills – will grow stronger.

There are four clear benefits to working out with your loved one, plus some additional ones
not covered here in detail. Your martial arts skills will improve since you will look forward to
your practices. You’ll also have more fun while doing so, and nothing makes a workout better
than this. Between the additional motivation, the set times, and many other benefits, you’ll
become a better martial artist in no time.
