Instructors take on students of all ages⎯or even entire families at once⎯as they impart the physical and mental skills of the martial arts. They teach not only self-defense techniques drawn from tae kwon do and jujitsu, but also introduce kali stick fighting and character-building exercises. See the schedule for available class times.
Q&A with Allison Drew, Instructor at Integrity Martial arts at ECA
Tell us about your business.
Our vision of martial arts is to help people get in shape, learn to protect themselves, and at the same time instill life skills and character development. Upholding important values like honesty, integrity, courtesy, patience, respect, self-control, and winning. We help our students achieve increased self-discipline, positive self-esteem, a spirit of constant and never-ending improvement, and an attitude that refuses to give up.
What inspired you to run this school?
Martial arts made such a difference in our lives it was an easy choice. We wanted to share the benefits with both children and adults. Our children love it so much that they also help us teach and share the martial arts.
What makes this martial-arts school stand out from the competition?
We are a family business. We are all black belts and understand that it takes a commitment from both the parents and the instructor to help the students achieve their goals. We also offer classes for children with special needs. We have helped numerous children with ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, and Down’s syndrome. We have been recommended by a member of the Dallas Down’s Syndrome Society.
Anything you want to add that we didn’t cover?
We love to compete both on the local and international level. We cross-train our students in boxing, jujitsu, and kali stick-fighting drills, as well. We are a traditional tae kwon do school, [but] we believe that martial arts are a living, breathing art.
“Great way to teach kids the value of hard work and discipline.”
