Adult Martial Arts in Austin
Our adult program – for students 14 and above - is tailored to the unique needs of busy adults with many priorities competing for their attention. It is a full black belt program. We tailor teaching to work with an adult understanding, often working ahead in the curriculum so that an adult can see the intention and context of the basic move that they are working to master. Many of our students travel extensively and we are able to accommodate and help them plan for this interruption.
Classes are 45 minutes and mix all levels of student together. Beginners plan to attend classes twice a week, Intermediates three times per week, and Advanced students can attend an unlimited number. Classes are designed to cover a wide variety of techniques, growing in complexity and challenge as the students advance through the belt ranks. Students test for their next belt after they achieve proficiency at each level. We find that adult commitment does not require the same kinds of motivation as the junior levels.
Once students achieve Intermediate rank (green through senior blue belt), they are promoted to Black Belt Club (BBC), where they will enjoy not only curriculum, but leadership classes, as well. BBC students will have the opportunity to shadow black belts and assist in teaching, in order to further develop their leadership skills.
At Advanced rank (brown through black belt candidate belt), students are promoted to XPT, where they have the opportunity to hone their martial arts skills while learning extracurriculars, such as weapons and advanced kicking and forms. Just like our Juniors, XPT students are eligible to try out for the Ernie Reyes West Coast World Martial Arts Austin demo team, our flagship performance group.
Adult students receive the additional benefit of free fitness classes!
