How long have you been in business?
We have been open for 10 years!
How did you get started?
We started in 2006 inside BodyBusiness on Anderson Lane! Back then, there was a room called the “Mind Body Room”. We would teach our classes in there. Eventually, we outgrew the space, and BodyBusiness was closing that space down, so we moved across the street in 2009 to the Northcross Center (next to Walmart).
What excites you most about your business?
We LOVE to teach! We have a very dedicated interest in seeing real improvement, be it in health, self-defense, or a greater sense of focus and confidence. We share in our students’ success! When they succeed, we succeed! We lay out goals, and our students put in the work to achieve them.
What’s most challenging?
There are two very challenging things about our business:
- One, is when a person doesn’t believe in him or herself, and says what I consider to be the most lethal words in the English Language, “I can’t.” That is the hardest. But, let us work with you, and perhaps we can change that to, “I’ll try a little”!
- Two, is really spreading the word about what it is we do. Our set up is very unique, our approach is very unique. We are the perfect martial arts training school for beginners, and we’d love more people to develop real self-defense skills in a very safe, fun, and positive way with us! So to that end, whoever reads this and contacts us, gets a free 1 Week Trial with us! Just mention BodyBusiness! Please visit our website at AustinKungFuAcademy.com and take a look around.
