An Open Letter to People Tired of "Watered Down" Martial Arts...
Jade Mountain Martial Arts Brings Integrity and Quality Back to Katy Martial Arts Classes.
"I've often felt that traditional martial arts today have been watered down in many schools, so that students would progress more quickly towards a black belt unaware of their lack of skill. This is done for the purpose of making more money, instead of helping the student achieve true mastery of themselves and their chosen martial art."
"I specialize in helping ordinary folks take their first steps towards getting back in shape, or becoming fit for the first time ever. Most of my students don't intend to fight in the UFC, nor do they plan to compete in tournaments. They just want to improve their health and their life, whether through martial arts or through general fitness training, and I very much enjoy leading them along that path."

"I do believe in encouraging students to work up to their potential. I believe in being realistic in their training.  And I believe in guiding my students along a path of challenge, discovery, and positive growth. There are No 1-year Black Belts in my school. Self-discovery is a process, and each student progresses at a different pace. My goal is to help each student according to their capabilities, and to make a change in their lives for the better.  You can come to us as a complete non-athlete, and we'll help you become something more. "

"Whether you train at Jade Mountain briefly, or you turn out to be one of my long-term students, I promise that I will do everything within my ability to help you walk the path of Martial Arts, gain the rewards from your journey, and have fun along the way."

Hands down the best place to learn martial arts and self defense. Amazing instructors and always a friendly and supportive group!

--Kevin H.
Our 4 years old son has been a student for 2 months, and we love how much he's learning, and how his manners have improved lately. I highly recommend it to kids and adults. Try it for free, you'll be happy you did.

--Miriam C.
Everyone at JMMA are consummate professionals, they care about you and your well being. They make hard work fun. Love, love, love JMMA.

--Kelly K .
This is such a wonderful place to bring your kids to! Everyone is very professional and sincere. My son has been going for almost 2 years and it has been a great experience. It's a great place for adults to learn Kung Fu as well. I researched many places before I took him here. I'm so glad we found it!

--Megan M.
Jade Mountain is a fabulous group of people with a top notch group of instructors. They are always encouraging and professional. The classes are well planned to incorporate stretching, strength, and technique... I highly recommend training with these fabulous people.

--Rebecca F.
Great with my kids. We have two boys in kungfu and Brazilian juijitsu...  motivated my video game player to be more active and has taught him to be more confident. It is the first time he has ever begged to go somewhere he is so physically challenged... Highly recommended for parents looking for a good place for the kids to be exposed to martial arts...

--Audrey M.
LOVE THIS PLACE! We have been members here for about two years...we have had so many accomplishments and personal goals met while being members here and honestly we would not be where we are if it was not for the love and support of SIFU as our coach. Highly recommended for any level of training. 

--Sarah G.
My daughter has been training at Jade Mountain Martial Arts for the past five years. My wife and I have noticed her increased confidence and self-esteem while learning practical methods of self defense. Sifu Whit and his dedicated team of instructors are patient and knowledgable. The classes are rigorous but very enjoyable.
Definitely would recommend.

--Yuri M.

I have had at least one of my boys (sometimes all three) in Kung Fu at Jade Mountain for the past 2.5 years. Sifu Whit and Ms. Katherine provide a great environment that is devoid of the "belt only" mentality that we had seen prior to coming here. The atmosphere is relaxed yet respectful and offers a safe environment for training...
