Looking for a great way to get in shape? Interested in martial arts and real-world fighting skills? Or maybe you just want to move like an action star. All of these are possible at The El Paso Karate Academy!
Here at the Academy, we believe in combining fun and fitness with some of the best martial arts classes in Texas. We offer a wide variety of programs - everything from grappling to karate to kickboxing - and our instructors are all professionally trained and accredited members of Black Belt Schools International. With great classes, experienced teachers, and affordable rates, you won't find a better school for a thousand miles!
Not sure you have what it takes to be a martial artist? Don't worry! We welcome students of all ages, genders, fitness levels and skill sets. It doesn't matter if you're a seasoned pro or a beginner. We'll work with you and figure out the best fit for YOUR goals and needs.
Not sure where to start? That's okay too! Take a peek at several of the programs we offer:
Available to ages 4 and up, our kids karate classes focus on self-defense in a fun, safe, engaging environment. They're so exciting the kids won't even realize they're educational, too! (And don't worry, moms - every class is age-appropriate and carefully supervised!)
Muay Thai Kickboxing:
Turn your entire body into an instrument of self-defense with our Muay Thai Kickboxing Program. More than just pummeling a punching bag, Muay Thai uses strikes, kicks, elbows, knees, and joints for practical self-defense from any kind of attack. Wrap your knuckles and get to work!
Drawing inspiration from MMA (mixed martial arts), this class is for serious learners who are ready to take on a challenge. You don't need previous martial arts experience, but you do need a fighting spirit! Shed those extra pounds while also learning real world hand-to-hand and self-defense skills!
Open to all ages, our taekwondo classes combine the wisdom of an ancient art with the fun of an Olympic sport. Learn how to strike, block, and spar under the careful tutelage of black belts - it's excitement for the whole family!
And those are just the beginning! Check out our other programs on their respective pages, too!
Whether you're looking for serious martial arts training or just a few lessons in keeping yourself safe, we're positive that our menu will have something FUN and USEFUL for people from ALL walks of life. We have a huge success rate (check out our testimonials!) and once you've experienced our place, we just know you'll come back for more.

"Years ago I was a shy and unconfident person, but today I understand the contribution of the martial arts in my life. In the past years it has given me so much to be proud of. The things that I have learned have been amazing. They all have to do with understanding yourself both physically and mentally yet understanding the simple things t...hat we take for granted...happiness, honesty, respect, discipline and honor...Because of all these things that I have learned, I need to give a big thanks to the staff here at El Paso Karate...and thank you Dad and Mom for giving me this valuable experience." - Freddy Silva, Junior Second Degree Black Belt

It has been an experience that I would not change and I would do it all over again, given the chance." - Elizabeth Bernadette, Adult First Degree Black Belt
