HOUSTON MARTIAL ARTS ACADEMY

© Houston Martial Arts Academy 2023
The Houston Martial Arts Academy ("HMAA") specializes in real life self- defense training. We are dedicated to developing our members' confidence and ability to defend any type of attack at any range. We also make sure to have fun while we are training so that we actually enjoy practicing the techniques, drills and concepts from the martial arts we offer.

Instructors/Teachers

We pride ourselves in continuing our training in all aspects of martial arts to give our students the best we have to offer. Our belief is a teacher should never stop learning or striving to be better.
