Our Adult Kung Fu classes teach traditional kung fu forms including animal forms, weapons and many other effective self-defense techniques. Shaolin-Do students are left with the experience of being empowered and confident in all aspects of their lives. They leave class knowing they have the ability to defend themselves and their families should the need ever arise.
Practicing Shaolin-Do Adult Kung Fu results in improved flexibility, mental focus and memory, and a chance to meet great people sharing the common goal of learning adult kung fu as an ancient art form, a fighting system and a means to meet your potential in all areas of life. To be a master of kung fu means to be a master of oneself.

I have been training with Master Joseph for 6 years, and spent a total of 12 in the system. The curriculum is fantastic and there is never a class where you don't feel like you haven't learned something. There is such a great camaraderie between students which makes the classes that much more enjoyable.Classes are accommodating to people of varying degrees of fitness. Don't feel intimidated if you've sat on the couch for years. Master Joseph and his instructors have the skill and patience to inspire anyone to achieve great things, both in and out of class.

I LOVE this school and everyone in it. I started doing Kung Fu with absolutely no previous experience in anything similar on May 29th 2017 and haven't looked back since. The owners Master Joe and his wife Master Sheryl are not only extremely talented but also super nice and sweet people. They really do care about all their students. I unfortunately sprained my foot and Master Sheryl suspended all my payments until I recover, and Master Joe even offered complimentary Tai Chi lessons when I start walking again. After I get over this sprain I will be back to earn my yellow belt for sure. If you are like me and could never find a workout you could stick to, trust me, this is it. We are a family here and everyone is genuinely concerned with everyone else's well being. If you're on the fence about it, just come over and spend one night with us. You won't regret it!

It's been years since my dad and I came here in fact they where over on burnet when I was here last. Joe was always very helpful in making share that everybody in the class got the materialthe students need to move on before moving on to the next belt level. I'm glade to see that he's still in business and hope he well be for sometime do to the great teaching and classes.

Both of my children go to the North Austin Shaolin Do Kung Fu school. My youngest has been attending for over two years, first in the Tiger Program and now as a Dragon. My oldest has been a Dragon for just over one year. Both kids love the school and the instructors. The kids move up in rank approximately every 2-3 months - just enough to keep them invested but not enough that testing into a new belt loses meaning. I highly recommend this school for any families interested in martial arts for their kids.

I have been a student with North Austin Kung Fu for over 10 years. Over that time, I've been injured, had some kids, enrolled the kids, and re-enroleld myself. Many places teach martial arts, but here, you learn a deep and complex art with a great group of people that are a community. They are more interested in developing you as a person - applying the principles of the arts into your life - than they are in taking each student for as much money as they could. This is not a school for someone who wants to learn how to compete in MMA. This is a school for someone who is looking for a home to learn, get fit, and wants to improve their lives in general. After time off (as in a few years) from a back injury, I was way out of shape. The structure of the classes is such that I could take the time I needed to get back into shape, and now, continue to push the envelope with what I can personally do. I now watch my two kids grow within the system and apply what they learn to their own lives.

What started as a family event to explore Tai Chi has turned out becoming a family lifestyle as we enjoy both Tai Chi as well as Kung Fu. The community at North Austin Kung Fu are more than welcoming and the most encouraging folks you'll meet. Knowledgeable in both the history as well as modern application, there is no place better to stretch yourself than North Austin Kung Fu.

My wife and I were looking for an activity that we could participate in together in retirement. We chose to try the Tai Chi program in 2017. The classes have helped us to improve our mental and physical fitness at a pace we set.Since then, I've started to participate in Kung-Fu classes for additional exercise and as a personal challenge.We've been welcomed into the school community, and have really enjoyed our time at the school.
