A Chat with Akka Karate Usa
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We have been here in the Northwest for 15 years. The master instructor has been training for 32 years. We teach Kenpo, Jiu-Jitsu, and fitness classes at very versatile times!
What’s one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
A great way to come prepared is to bring a small towel for perspiration and a water bottle. We also give an intro session to make sure everyone feels comfortable at their first class.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Having a…positive experience in martial arts myself, I knew one day I would help [open] or own a school. The opportunity came up, and with God’s help I have been doing it ever since.
What do you love most about your job?
I love the fact that we help kids and adults get closer to reaching their full potential. I also like that we form lasting friendships. Students still check in every now and then after having already moved on with their lives. It’s a testament to what we do. Seeing them succeed is awesome!
