Great for adults! Karate feels good! Many of our adult students who have tried other forms of exercise like running or lifting weights; say that nothing makes them feel as good as the Martial Arts. The exercise and mental training offers great stress relief and gives them the confidence they need to resolve conflict. We also encourage "open training"; anytime during normal hours of operation.
At AKKA Karate USA, we offer several different programs to choose from:
WHAT IS KENPO KARATE?
Kenpo Karate is based on a the Chinese system, Chaun Shu or Kung Fu(boxing). Kenpo Karate means empty-hand fighting. It is a system made up of specialty self defense techniques and forms. Through Kenpo Karate instruction, you will learn proper breathing techniques and movements utilizing the natural weapons of the body – the feet and hands. By developing breath control, muscle tone, quick reflexes, and agility, you may discover a new inner harmony and outer ability which will help throughout life.
Insert videos I will send at a later time.
WHAT ABOUT MMA?
Mixed Martial Arts(MMA) is a full contact combat sport that allows the use of both striking and grappling techniques, both standing and on the ground, including boxing, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, wrestling, Muay Thai, kickboxing, taekwondo, karate, judo, kung fu, and other styles. At AKKA, we are proud to teach several different styles of MMA.
WHAT IS TAI CHI?
Tai Chi, can perhaps best be thought of as a moving form of yoga and meditation combined. There are a number of forms which consist of a sequence of movements. Many of thes movements are originally derived from the martial arts (and perhaps even more ancestrally than that, from the natural movements of animals and birds) although the way they are performed in Tai Chi is slow, soft, and graceful with smooth transitions between them. For many practitioners the focus in doing them is not, first and foremost, martial, but as a meditative exercise for the body. For others the combat aspects of Tai Chi are of considerable interest.
