Are you dealing with
You have a hard time sticking to a workout plan, you are extremely busy, and your energy levels are down.
You’re tired of running and walking on treadmills and stair steppers and you know you should be improving your health, but you don’t know what’s the best way.
You look at yourself in the mirror and know you can be better and feel like you are in a rut.
Forming Healthy Workout Habits is difficult!
We recognize the flaws and mind-numbing boredom that can come along with some other gym-bound activities. Here at International Karate & Self Defense, we have designed classes to work your butt off, but it will feel effortless because of how much fun you will have and how engaged you will feel with other participants. Even better, unlike aerobics class, the moves in Fitness Kickboxing have some real-life application. As you punch, jab, and protect your face from an imaginary attacker, you’re learning to protect yourself. By practicing these simple self-defense moves in our fun atmosphere, you will gain a greater sense of empowerment and self-confidence.
This will not be easy, but once you start to see the results, you will begin to get that sexy, empowering feeling back that you have been desiring.
Results and growth with every class!

This is an exceptional place. Especially for my 5 year old son. Mike is amazing with the kids, he has a special gift, in working with children & he's funny too!
We also had my son's birthday here, and it was super easy and fun!!
This school is amazing. Mike Ashwood is phenomenal and successfully instructs all types of kids. I have personally seen him instruct children that have challenges that no one else might take on but Mike did - and they loved him! All of Mike's kids are black belts themselves and this is definitely a family business to be proud of. My son earned his black belt under his instruction and we are fans for life! The standards that this school sets are high and you would never regret attending here.
Mike Ashwood is fantastic with the kids, creating an environment that balances hard work with fun. My daughter recently became a black belt and I am so proud of the journey she has taken and know that it was such a great journey in part because of Mr. Ashwood and the environment he creates for the kids.
Mr. Ashwood was made for this job. My daughter loves working with each of the Ashwood family. Her self-esteem & confidence have grown to new heights.
I love this place. Mr. Ashwood is a great instructor. My dad and I started going here back when I was 14 and 9 years later, I'm getting back into it (after a 5 year hiatus) to work toward my 2nd degree black belt. If you live in Forney or the surrounding areas and are looking for a good place to learn martial arts, I highly recommend International Karate and Self Defense.

Short answer; absolutely not! We have members of all health and fitness levels, and our classes are designed to fit around each one of these levels.
The only thing we ask is that you bring your best attitude when you come to one of our classes. If you have the mental framework determined to become physically healthy, that is all we want to see. Our trainers will help you get into the best shape of your life!
Of course. Although, we must say you get what you put in. If you follow a consistent workout pattern, you are bound to see the results you want. On average, kickboxers burn an average of 820 calories per hour.
No, we love teaching new members. There is no better way to gain respect from our community than someone who has the will to join our class without any experience. If you can take that first step, you have already proven to our group that you are a strong-minded individual. We will teach you everything you need to know.
Most of the training comes from the natural, isotonic, aerobic, anaerobic, and isometric exercises, although, some weight training may be recommended or used. These exercises help our members with losing weight and toning the whole body; our focus is for you to develop speed, flexibility, and force.
Sweats and a T-shirt, or yoga attire, work best. You’ll also want to bring a towel and a bottle of water. And of course bring the mental attitude that you’re going to kill this workout!
We understand how busy your life can be; we would love to see you at least once a week. We believe once a week will be a good start for you to build your overall endurance and capability to implement the basic kickboxing moves.
