Welcome to Texas Karate Academy/Premier Martial Arts in Seagoville, Texas, where our core style is sung moo kwon tae kwon do (this is a mixture of shotokan karate and mudokwon tae kwon do). We now teach MMA, Jiu-Jitsu and Kickboxing as well. Train to become part of the Premier Fight Team! Although we practice many ancient traditions we are always searching for new and dynamic ways to enthrall our students. We are committed to black belt excellence.
Our state-of-the-art facility has over 4,500 square feet. Our main floor is large and is equipped with a swain martial arts floor. Our training room contains training equipment designed to improve our students endurance and sparring techniques. Our training room is also a secondary floor in which to do floor training. Our viewing area has a home-like feel with comfortable seating and a direct view to the main floor. This allows the parents to socialize while watching their kid(s). We are confident that you will be comfortable here and have the best possible experience with the martial arts.
Our MMA program is great for all men and women ages 13 and up. You do not have to be in great shape to get started in the class. The goal of the program is not to hurt others, but to provide a challenging setting of perseverance and self improvement.
