Learn how, ask why. Always practice, then apply.
Kenpo karate is an extremely practical style of martial arts and great for discipline, core conditioning, balance and focus. You will learn street effective self defense moves while improving your physique. All of our key katas (forms) are taught both solo and with attackers.
I love teaching others and spreading the art of Kenpo Karate. I have been training in martial arts since 2000 and it has always been a passion of mine to spread knowledge and help others gain self confidence in their abilities. I hold black belts in Kenpo, Tae Kwon Do and Karate. My instructor always says "to teach us to learn twice" and I find this very true and especially love when a student asks a question I hadn't thought about previously.
Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, Value The desert sensei approves.
Positive: Communication, Value I absolutely love it here! I have been here for a couple of months and I really enjoy the connection with my teacher, Kat. She is very skilled and acknowledgable of what she is teaching. The best part is how friendly the environment it. I love how I can work on my own pace without feeling judgment. Totally recommend.
Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, Value Seriously one of the best Karate experiences I've ever had! Kenpo is focused on self-defense, making it very useful for anybody to learn. Every class is informative, fun, and a great workout. Instructor Cat is such a kind, understanding, and experienced teacher. She replies extremely quickly to any questions in and out of class, is very empathetic for everyone's story, and has an incredibly easy to lear style that really works. You will be hard pressed to find someone as passionate and skilled as Cat in Austin, and you'd be depriving yourself of a great experience if you don't at least try out Immortal Tiger. Plus, their new dojo just opened up on McNeil and 183, a beautiful space with plenty of room to practice and spar in, along with huge mirrors to make sure your form is correct. There's never been a better time than now to join, so stop thinking about it and just do it! I promise you won't regret it, not now, not ever.
Cat is a great martial artist and amazing teacher.
New students are welcome anytime and we do not require contracts. We start with basics, stances, kicks, blocks, and then build up from there into some basic sets and your first kata. Every kata in kenpo karate has a real world application that we teach by also having someone attack you for each move in the kata.
I have been training in martial arts since 2000 and hold black belts in Karate, Tae Kwon Do and Kenpo. I have also trained in Small Circle Jujitsu and two styles of Iaido (Japanese Sword) - Muso Shinden Ryu and Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu.
First week of class is free to try, then first month is only $79 which includes your uniform and belt. After that classes are $129 a month, NO CONTRACTS. I do not charge enrollment fees, cancellation fees, belt testing fees, assocation fees, etc. So many schools nickel and dime their students and I chose to go with a model where there were no surprises each month in your bill.
I have been assistant teaching since the early 2000s at my first martial arts school. I have always loved helping others learn to master their body. When I moved to Austin in 2016 there were no other shaolin kenpo schools here for me to train at and my instructor gave me his blessing to begin teaching on my own which I did in 2017.
Students as young as age 3 all the way to senior age. I also have experience working with those with learning disabilities (austism, Down syndrome etc) and those with physical limitations
I held a women's seminar for employees of Indeed and some of the attendees had been attacked in real life before. Their insight was invaluable to the class to further emphasize how what I was teaching would indeed work given on the reality of the way attacks happen.
