Opening October 3rd!

Well, it has been a long time coming, but Rising Phoenix Martial Arts will finally be opening for business on October 3rd, which is this coming Monday!  This dojang has been my dream since I was just a boy.  What we are building here is not just another taekwondo school, but institute of higher learning for the martial arts as a whole.  A place where people from all walks life can come together under a single roof with a kindred embodiment of the warrior ethos.  A place of scholastic study and athletic rigor where people with big hearts can make equally grand changes in their lives. It took Seonok and I a long time to get back to America, find the right place with just the right building and remodel that building in manner that accommodated all our needs, but now, out of obscurity comes something that has been curing in the bedrock of our hearts and minds for the last decade, an institution of integrity and passion that we wish to share with the budding town of Kyle, TX.  Please come see us at your earliest convenience.  A grand new journey awaits you and your family just around the corner.

For this week only, you can still preregister online by completing the application on our website here: qualifies you for a FREE months of instruction with the purchase of your uniform and 40% off tuition for up to one year of training.  Please spread the word.

Kyle Market Days

Good afternoon folks!

As anyone who is visit this page is probably well aware, we are close to finally opening at our new dojang here in Kyle, TX.  In anticipation, Seonok and I are working hard to drum up interest, and as part of that, we are tabling at various events around town, the most pressing of which is the Kyle Market Days.  It is held every month during the summer in the old, downtown Kyle area, just a block or two away from the dojang at Mary Kyle Hartson Park.  We will be there this Saturday (June 11th) from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM.  We welcome you to swing by and try to break a board or learn more about our programs.
