Founded in 1978 by Shihan Pablo Mejia, Acadiana Karate has taught thousands of its students how to succeed in life. Students may begin their training as early as 5 through Adult.
Martial Arts is one of the best possible activities for children and adults.
We teach our students how to defend themselves physically, but more importantly how to build the mental and emotional skill sets necessary to conquer challenges well beyond the classroom. Acadiana Karate’s structured classes are meant to help develop coordination, physical fitness, mental strength, as well as gain valuable social skills. Through positive reinforcement, Acadiana Karate brings out the best in your child to help them succeed in life with better communication and social skills.
Why Acadiana Karate?
Structured and Age Appropriate Classes– Kids at Acadiana Karate actually like the structure, because it makes them feel safe and cared for. They can trust deep down that they’re safe to explore and challenge themselves. Classes are age appropriate so that kids can learn skills and topics that are based upon their stages of physical and mental development.
Flexible Class Schedule– Our programs were created for real family schedules. Convenient class times mean that kids, adults, and whole families can improve their quality of life without killing every moment of spare time.
Movement and Motor Skill Development Based– Both kids and adults will gain flexibility, agility, and strength, even if they aren’t athletic! They’ll love it, because it’s not only super fun, it’s inclusive and accommodating at every step.
Values Oriented and Positive Community– Our programs are based upon the tenets of honesty, integrity, politeness, courage, justice and never quitting spirit. Our positive atmosphere is contagious and you’ll know without a doubt that you’re in a place where kids will learn positive habits and adults will make meaningful, lasting friendships.
FUN– At Acadiana Karate, we know that getting your child out of the house, in the car, and across town to an activity is a big deal. We garuantee that when they leave, it will have been 100% worth it, every time!
