"We don't expect you to fit into our system, we develop a method to fit your needs based on your attributes."

Most students entering Martial Arts Programs must learn the particular style just as it was taught centuries ago.
 
Bruce lee felt that the student shouldn't have to fit into the system but the system must fit into the individual based on his capabilities good and not so good.  I will develop a method of training for you that will meet your individual needs not the person who is training next to you in class.

  •  KIDS MARTIAL ARTS

  • Martial arts classes for kids in Austin

    Children need lots of activity to use all the energy they have and grow up healthy and strong. But learning a martial art is much more than that. It also starts a child on a lifelong path of enjoying physical activity in a positive atmosphere.

    A lack of physical activity is a problem that adults and children face not only in Austin but throughout the country, and it is one of the main causes of obesity and deteriorating health in our society. To counteract the issue of poor health, we need to get people motivated and enjoying being active. This is one of the primary focuses the Parra Academy has when engaging with our students, especially the younger ones. We make every effort to ensure our classes as engaging as possible for the young people of Austin, so that they will pick up the skills and attitude that will make their lives easier and more rewarding.

    The Parra Academy organizes its martial arts classes for children around the idea that different children learn in different ways. We use a variety of different teaching techniques to help our students remember what we teach them, because the faster they learn the faster they can move forward. If you are interested in enrolling your child in one of our classes then please contact us at (512) 797-1063.

    Martial Arts your path to a better life

    When the people of Austin come to the Parra Academy to learn martial arts, they donít just receive training, but a staff that is dedicated to helping them improve themselves.

    Dedicated to enhancing our students

    Learning a martial art can be the memorizing of moves, but at Parra Academy we focus on teaching our students much more. Martial arts is, in some respects, a way of life. We do not mean that certain individuals earn a living from being in matches or teaching. Martial arts is a way of life because it practices mindfulness. When you practice a strike, a throw, or an exercise, the goal is to understand your body and be one with the movement. Eventually the goal is to, in time, be completely present in the moment and learn how to bring out that amount of centeredness when you need it. All the stresses in your life become much more manageable when you know how to find your center and understand that you have the mental tools you need to overcome the problem.

     

  •  JIU JITSU

  •  MUAY THAI KICKBOXING

  •  BRUCE LEE'S JKD KICKBOXING

  •  MMA CLASSES

  • Traditional martial arts are often divided into strike based fighting (e.g. karate, taekwondo, and boxing) and grappling (jiu-jitsu, judo, and wrestling). This would leave fighters at a disadvantage because they were trained in either midrange or close range techniques. Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) was created to merge these two fighting archetypes into a single art form.

  • Why learn MMA?

    There are many reasons to train in MMA. Here are the ones that our Austin students mention most frequently.

    • Build confidence

    • Learn discipline

    • Excellent physical workout

    • Stay cool under pressure

    • Relieve stress

  •  CROSS FITNESS THRU APPLIED MARTIAL ARTS

  •  SELF DEFENSE CLASSES

  • Self-defense courses in Austin

    We donít like to admit it but there are some streets in Austin that we would rather not walk down alone at night. Usually, the thing to do is just avoid these places, but sometimes trouble comes to you. When it does, it is best to be prepared. The Parra Academy is here to give the people of Austin the tools they need to protect themselves when they need to.

    Protect yourself

    When the adrenaline is pumping it can be very hard to think clearly. This is the primary focus we have when teaching. We are going to teach you something that you hopefully will never have to use, but if you do, then we want you be able to pull out this new skill set with ease. That is why we created a course specifically to prepare you in case of an assault.

    The Parra Academy has designed its self-defense course by boiling down different martial arts techniques into their key components. These components are then connected with specific situations so that you gain the necessary knowledge to handle almost any circumstance. Our goal is that when situation X arises, you will counter with Y.

    Meet new people

    Self-defense is a serious subject but this is not the army, it is a classroom and we try to have fun while learning. Even the strongest building canít stand on a weak foundation. That is why we support each other in class; to create a solid foundation for our students to stand upon. Come and meet likeminded individuals, engage with other members of your community, and have some fun. If you have any questions about the self-defense classes we provided the people of Austin then please feel free to contact us.
