Typical classes include physical conditioning, moving basics, kata and kata bunkai oyo (traditional forms and practical applications), self-defense applications, and kumite (sparring)

 Youth Classes: We place special emphasis on teaching children and offer special classes for them. We have found that children especially benefit from the study of traditional karate because of the self- confidence they gain.  Along with enhanced self-esteem, the physical coordination, discipline, and concentration they develop often carries over to other sports, academics, and life endeavors. Children are also taught self-awareness and breakaway techniques to enable them to avoid and evade would-be abductors. We encourage winning but not at the expense of respect and dignity. Most of all, we present karate training as a fun yet challenging experience. A "C" grade average is mandatory and we adhere to the "no pass, no play" philosophy. School comes first!

Teen & Adult Group instruction is available for men and women aged 13 years and up.  It offers many benefits - multiple training partners, high energy dynamics, and development of strong spirit.  Perhaps the most important aspect is belonging to a group of like-minded individuals who support us and urge us to become our absolute best.  Adult classes focus on strong technique, understanding of kata (forms) performance and application, physical fitness, mental focus, and strong self-defense skills.  Group training promotes camaraderie and respect.

Our motto:  "More rank means more responsibility."

In the martial arts, great emphasis is placed upon the Senior - Junior (Sempai - Kohai) mentoring relationship.  Senior practitioners, similar to older brothers and sisters, are responsible for setting high standards through personal example.                                                          

Special Trainings: (as scheduled)

Private instruction and special advanced classes are also held at Sensei Pounds' home dojo off Sandy Road in Johnson City TX, by appointment or invitation only.  Email or call for information. Off-site training also available.

 Private Personal Training for Men and Women

For busy professionals, obtaining a private personal trainer has become a preferred method of achieving individual goals - in fitness as well as in the martial arts.  We have seen an increase in the number of clients who choose this method because it allows flexibility of scheduling and the creation of a program tailored specifically for their needs.

Personal training sessions are available for those interested in one-on-one individualized training, with concentration on fitness, agility, and overall conditioning as well as the mastery of self-defense skills and a deeper understanding of Goju-Ryu karate.

Personal training sessions are designed to meet the needs and expectations of the individual - whether it be for physical conditioning, competition skills, safety and awareness, or in-depth study of kata (forms) or kumite (fighting).  Talk to us about your personal goals and we'll help design a karate/yoga/fitness program to meet them.

Sessions may be purchased individually and are scheduled "by appointment only".  A discount is offered for five sessions purchased as a block.  Sessions available for all ages and abilities.

Private lessons are typically held at Sensei Pounds' home dojo in Johnson City, Texas or off-site by special arrangement

Please contact Sensei Jim Pounds directly for more information.
