Our after school program began in 1992 in Austin, TX by Grandmaster Michael J. Bainton, Ph.D. with a focus on responsibility to family and education first, and through martial arts we help build these values in our students. Central Texas Family Karate started in 2007 in Hewitt, TX. Although our schools are very well rounded and include striking, kicking, forms/ kata, weapons, self defense and ground fighting, our focus at Central Texas Family Karate is building good citizens first and world class martial artists second. Your child will be taught and mentored by a Martial Arts Hall of Fame instructor on a daily basis, helping them achieve their highest potential in the martial arts. The Ba Ki Do/ Bujutsu system has produced many world champion martial artists and has also received many other awards for martial arts, community involvement and citizenship.
