A Few Words
I’m Shihan Pablo, Owner / Head Instructor here at Acadiana Karate.
As a martial arts instructor with extensive experience training kids, there is nothing better than seeing them grow firsthand.
But more important than the martial arts skills they learn… is the personal skills they develop and carry for life.
Because martial arts is so much more than just kicking and punching, and getting the next colorful belt.
It’s about developing confidence, discipline, character, focus and respect.
With every class we teach, your kids are growing in mind, body and character.
That’s because martial arts provides instant positive feedback. Through learning to focus on the core moves, they develop discipline and respect. They can instantly see and feel a difference, making them destined to build confidence, self-awareness and self-respect.
And of course it’s a ton of FUN!
That’s why I love teaching martial arts to kids in this community, and why I know your kids are going to LOVE training.
So please have a look below to find out exactly how your kids can benefit from our fun martial arts classes.

I have been associated with Acadiana Karate for over 14 years - first as a parent, then a student, and now as an instructor. Daily I get to the see benefits of the martial arts program at Acadiana Karate for all who participate but one student in particular stands out. As a teacher at a local elementary school during the day, I met a kindergarten student who never smiled, and cried not to go to school. He began karate in the first grade. His first day in the Little Ninja class was the first time in a year that I saw this boy smile - and he's been seen smiling and happy at school ever since. This student is currently the student of the month in his first grade class. His teacher states that he is self confident in his interactions with classmates and teachers. The school guidance counselor attributes his success to karate. " Karate has done wonders for him," she tells me every time she sees me.
Incredible, world class instruction!
Ashlyn(my daughter) started karate when she was 4 years old. She is 13 years old now and has worn every uniform, and participated in every club available. Sensei Kelly knows my daughter almost better than I do. It's more than the focus, respect, honesty, and constant reach for excellence. As an overprotective parent, I am really picky about keeping my tween busy and out of trouble. I am so thankful for everyone at Acadiana Karate for all that they do. Sensei Kelly is a great role model that continues to contribute to the woman that Ashlyn will become.
