Welcome to Traditional Martial Arts Academy of South Austin, TX!

I have long been interested in martial arts, having taken a few PE classes in college, but it took a long time to find a place where I felt I could really commit to training. My son started in the Wee Warriors program at TMAA, and as I got to know the staff I thought this felt like a good school for me. Now I am in the best shape of my life and find myself looking forward to every class. My son is in the kids program now and loves that we are learning different aspects of the same material. We train hard, but we watch out for and encourage each other through it all. The training floor is understated and dignified, and I love that there is a collection of books and toys on the side to help keep children occupied. My daughter went through the Wee Warriors program and my wife does the fitness classes, so there really is something for everyone. If you’re looking for a school that values tradition without being too caught up in formality, and that pushes you to your limits in a good way, then I strongly encourage you to give TMAA a try.
