I have been attending American (Texas) Kickboxing Academy for only a month, but I am absolutely hooked. I was a little apprehensive and unsure what to expect at first, but after attending my first class, I knew that I would fit in here just fine. I always get to class on time, give a full effort, and leave soaking wet and sore for a day or two. Which is exactly what I was looking for. They push me harder than I would push myself at a fitness club or gym.
My 10 year old son also attends AKA and he is also excited about going to class every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday just like I am. It amazes me at how Mr. Ozuna and Mr. Salaam both remember every single person's name and address everyone by Mr. or Mrs. so and so..and How are you doing today? It certainly says a whole lot about them as instructors and about their dedication to their students.
If you are looking to sign up with a school and be a UFC fighter after a week or so, I think you have unrealistic expectations, and you should look elsewhere. If you are looking to attend a school where you are taught Respect, Honor and Discipline, then Texas Kickboxing Academy may be what you are looking for.
Pros: Friendly staff, very personable, great honest workout
