I started practicing Martial Arts when I was 13, in Scotland, where practicing Martial Arts is not common. The system in which I trained was called SooYang Do, a relatively new Korean-based system founded in Scotland. Only when I moved to Katy and joined Meng's Martial Arts did I realize how many things the other system lacks, due to the extremely in-depth teachings of the instructors at Meng's. Although at first, I was interested in more acrobatic styles and looked at other schools, I fell in love with how and what I learned at Meng's on my first day. Within the first two months after joining, I had been exposed to, and had learned more than I had during the two years of training SooYang Do. I was blown away by how many small details there are in every technique. One of the most important characteristics of Meng's is that it is not confined to one style like Taekwondo or Judo or any other Martial Art that specializes in certain techniques. The instructors teach the concepts and patterns of techniques which can then be applied to any Martial Art, style, or system. It's truly fantastic. No matter if one decides to start training Martial Arts to learn to defend oneself in real life, compete in tournaments and competitions, or simply to increase one's fitness and health, Meng's Martial Arts of Katy offers it all. I recommend Meng's to everyone.

I have been interested in taking Krav Maga classes ever since I watched episodes about the fighting style on "Fight Quest" and "Human Weapon". When Houston Krav Maga opened a location close to me (on I-45 between Spring and the Woodlands), I knew I had to take the classes. As…

Excellent on every level! Master Cho and his team are AMAZING! I have two children who attend Tae Kwon Doh classes at this center and both my husband and I have been very happy with the consistent enthusiasm, discipline and expertise that all the instructors demonstrate. My children have gained confidence, respect for others and an interest in pushing themselves physically while having fun at the same time. Master Cho and his staff all have heart and soul for the TKD discipline and for their students- (both young and old). The instructors are: dedicated, profoundly knowledgeable, and each offer their special talents and unique contributions. I would like to mention specifically: Master Cho: Highly skilled 7th degree black belt-(owner), who is able to teach the kids and the adults with an ease and skill that comes from over 30 + years of training. He is: patient, kind, humble, strong and he teaches respect, hard work and strong values to his students. His positive energy, discipline and enthusiasm is a gift to his students! Instructor Valentine: is very positive, respectful and teaches the kids this value in action and deed. He is a highly dedicated teacher who easily relates to his students and is well liked. He is also extremely skilled - with several levels of black belt! Praneet and Pepper Franklin
My husband and I joined Master Rick’s Talium about a month ago and we absolutely love it. In this short period I have seen positive changes in my overall health and I am really grateful. Now it has become a part of our routine. Master Rick’s classes are so much fun. Just like Master Rick, I intend to become younger by the day in spirit, mind and body by practicing Taekwondo :) He motivates every student to become better and stronger in every class. Sometimes, instructors from other Talium schools come to the Houston Talium to teach and demonstrate – the demonstrations are surely remarkable and inspirational. The adults class is at 7 PM every day. When we arrive at the class, sometimes if the previous class is still going on, you get to see kids (all ages) learning Taekwondo – being energetic and focused and having fun. Master Rick is really good with kids. His classes are not just about kicking and punching, but education of the mind as well. He also teaches the kids to be more disciplined and respectful to everybody. I am sure all the parents of those kids are really glad to have found a teacher like Master Rick. I would highly recommend anybody (no age bar) who wants to learn Taekwondo to join Master Rick’s Talium. It is never too late to become a student of Taekwondo.
Meng's Martial Arts of Katy TX has changed my life in so many fascinating ways. Whether times were good or bad, happy or sad, going to Meng's would always put a smile on my face. I started my Kung Fu journey three years ago and I'm now starting to finalize my black belt. The impact Meng's has made on my life is not only physical, but mental and even spiritual. I've been boosted with loads of confidence, made many good life-long friends, and the physical work has made me stronger. The countless hours of training and the amount of time, energy, and effort has made such a unique school. It truly is unlike an other Kung Fu/martial schools. I've learned many techniques to defend myself, but I've learned many life lessons, which helped me get into my first choice high school. The strong connection I have with the instructors, students, and techniques have made me who I am today. Meng's will always be in my body, mind, and soul and will never be replaced. -Katie Noble Future Black Belt
I have observed other karate schools and the way they are run. Some of those schools have lost what karate is all about. Belt test are more like gang initiations, what they call teaching is more like legalized abuse (verbal and physical) and forget about starting anything on time. Sherry runs a very good school, she teaches karate the way it is meant to be taught, with discipline yet kindness and patience. Her belt test are a time the students show-off their skills they learn. I have never seen her say or do anything that as a parent worried me. I would not even think about having my child take karate from anyone other than Sherry.
I went to this school I was very impressed with the Instructor, extremely knowledgeable, the students there were very kind and polite, very nice dojo had lost of bags and area to work out in. I have been to 6 of the top schools here in Houston all are awesome great instructors but this school and Mr.Taylor stuck out with there Reality Based Martial Arts class. It is so much more than any one else is offering, I am a black belt 4dan so I have seen alot of Instructor and styles, but this school and Instructor are the BEST I have seen in years!!! I do not say this lightly it takes alot for me to say this. check out the school,it is now my home
Superkicks Karate school is the best school I have had the pleasure to be involved with. My son is currently enrolled in the karate program. Mrs. Hildebrand is incredible and is very good with children and truly cares about them. It has a family feel that is very welcoming to both new and existing students. She works to develop the students physically, mentally and spiritually. I am also enrolled in the karate program AND the Fight Like a Girl program. Mrs. Hildebrand encourages you be the best you can be both physically and emotionally. I highly recommend this school for anyone looking for a karate school.
I REALLY LOVE THIS SCHOOL, EVERYONE THERE IS FRIENDLY AND THEY REALLY EMBRACE YOU. MY SON HAD LOW SELF ESTEEM AND SHERRY AND HIS PEERS REALLY TOOK HIM IN AND TREATED HIM THEY WAY EVERY HUMAN BEING DESERVES TO BE TREATED, WITH RESPECT AND COURTESY. THE INSTRUCTOR IS WONDERFUL, SHE IS KIND AND UNDERSTANDING YET TOUGH WHEN SHE NEEDS TO BE...NOT TO MENTION THE CLASSES ARE A BARGAIN....I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMEND THIS SCHOOL TO ANYONE WANTING THEIR CHILD IN KARATE. I ALSO TAKE THE FITNESS CLASSES AND SHE WILL REALLY GET YOU MOVING! THANKS SHERRY, YOU ARE A MARVELOUS HUMAN BEING AND I'M GRATEFUL TO HAVE MET YOU!!!
This place is awesome! We moved our daughter to this TKD school after relocating. It was a difficult decision as she had been at the previous studio for a very long time. After a couple of weeks, we were certain we had made the correct decision. Although the kids train hard, this studio has a family feel. Everyone is gracious and polite. Her skills have improved significantly and so has her attitude and focus. Forgot to mention, they offer an after school day care program and a summer camp...BONUS!! After 2 weeks of summer camp she made it clear she wants to attend this summer camp every year.
UTH has an outstanding after school and summer program, in addition to great classes in Taekwondo and Hapkido. I have been bringing my children to programs and lessons for four years and I have been pleased with my children's improved athleticism and self-esteem. Summer classes are engaging and provide a wide array of activities while after school programming keeps students focused on academics and achieving their goals. This martial arts school is a full service establishment with academic tutoring, recreational activities, and martial arts training.
