"AKKA Thornydale is a fantastic school. My son and I have been students here for over 5 years.In addition to self defense, the school also imparts confidence and discipline. They do a lot of work for the community, and it's given my son and I an opportunity to give back while we build our own character. Mr. K is a strong yet patient teacher, and always has his students smiling. I would recommend this to people of any age or capability."


"AKKA is a great school. Master Instructor, Michael Keschinger is awesome. He makes Karate classes fun even though it is hard work! My child enjoys the class so much, she is determined to achieve her black belt. AKKA is a family, not just a school. I highly recommend Mr. Keschinger's school to every parent that wants to see their child grow, succeed and become good role models for their community. Mr. K's students are transformed for life, as am I!

"Both of my children have attended instruction by Mr. K at this school and I have nothing but positive things to say about AKKA - Thornydale.  Mr. K creates a positive atmosphere where not only is it fun and rewarding for the kids but disciplined and challenging as well.  Mr. K is amazing at looking at the special needs of each person individually and helping them to build not only their physical strength, but their personal strength as well.  My child have not only learned Karate -they have learned discipline and respect.  There is not better choice for Karate."


"My daughter has gained confidence, discipline, and not to mention has a lot of fun. I would recommend this school to anyone, young or adult, looking for martial arts training."


"You have made a huge impression on him. He vowed to work on saying please and thank you more, and he does. He is also trying very hard to be helpful and offers to help me carry things in from the car."


"Our experience with AKKA Karate USA has been a great one. It has become like a second family to us."
