I've heard stories....the parents saying "oh kung fu changed my kid, my kid is so respectful now, they're doing better in school".....etc......honestly I thought, yea sure...You're kids probably just grew out of the bad behavior. That was until my son was having serious behavioral issues. I thought nobody could pull him out of this. I was at my wits end with all of it....not a day went by without a phone call from the school principal, then, alternative school was decided for him. Countless nights I cried....bring for a break from this...begging for help. Then an ad came across my Facebook about Round Rock Shaolin Do Kung Fu. A special at that...$69 uniform included for 6 weeks....all the places I called previous months were $99+ a week......so I clicked, paid and bam he was a new student. We met Master Duncan first, who did his beginning testing, and he had to remind my son a few times to focus and follow him. But he did it, and all the instructors there have guided him and encouraged him non-stop. So now I'm one of those parents that telling you "ROUND ROCK SHAOLIN DO KUNG FU HAS CHANGED MY CHILD'S LIFE AND MINE" he looks forward to going to school now, he PASSED 1st grade with flying colors, his attitude is 90% better, he smiles more, he's proud of himself, he has new friends, and AMAZING new role models. I'm NOT one to do reviews but I couldn't pass up this one!!! Please take my word on this and check it for your kid. Thank you Master Duncan and ALL your wonderful staff!!!!

What a great place for Kung Fu and birthday parties! They just hosted a party for my kiddo and I can't say enough good about their ability to pull off a flawless party, feed kiddos, and make sure everyone has fun. Kids got a mini-Kung Fu class, obstacle course, and games. Highly recommend these guys, especially Ms Hannah Chapman and Mr D. Thank you!!!

My 5 yr old son has been going here for about a month now and he loves it. I was nervous cause at first he didn't want to walk in the front door on the first day. Now he is out of the car running in before I can get out myself lol. I have even noticed his self esteem growing :). The little ninja instructors are excellent with the students. So glad I found this place!!

As a RYT(yoga instructor) I'm always open to learning and cultivating new skills which connect the body, mind and spirit. This connection is imperative for a well balanced life especially in the chaos of the world we live in. I have found this through the professional instructorship of Master Duncan the very first time I joined his TAI CHI class. He is calm, patient and passionate with his students and that is rare. Try his classes yourself and I'm confident you will be honored to be his student.

Loving the Tai Chi class - never a 'grind' or monotonous class & i always show up with a wonderous bright eyed 'what's next' or 'so what are we gonna do today' kind of feeling.

My son has been taking lessons at Round Rock Shaolin Do Kung Fu for a little over a year and absolutely loves it. The teachers are wonderful and really work with the kids to help them and encourage them. He loves it so much that he even asked to have his birthday party at the studio. Miss T and Miss Chapman did a fantastic job planning out the activities for the party. If you are looking for a great place for your kids to study Kung Fu or a super fun place to have a birthday party, call Master Duncan at Round Rock Shaolin Do Kung Fu. You won't be disappointed!

I have been a student of Shaolin Do for a little over a year now and a student of Master Duncan's for a little over a month and I highly recommend this school to anyone who is interested in learning the art of Kung Fu. Master Duncan's teaching style is very thorough and comprehensive and he makes sure you truly "understand" the material, specifically WHY you are learning something rather than just HOW to do a form or technique. Classes are usually pretty large (20+) students for the adult class, and there is a large cross-section of ages, ranks, physiques and abilities, so it does not feel like students are competing with or judging each other - each student works as part of the class, but each student works at THEIR pace.

This school also offers classes for children and as an expectant father, I cannot wait to bring my son to share in the great experience Master Duncan offers. The children's classes are entertaining to watch (as an adult) and the kids themselves are extremely motivated and seem to love every minute. The focus and discipline these classes teach the kids will certainly come in handy, plus it's a great place for them to make friends that can last a lifetime.

For those who truly want to learn traditional Kung Fu, enhance their physical abilities, discipline their mind and have fun while doing it, stop by the school, meet the teachers and the students and join us - it truly is a family atmosphere. You will not be disappointed.

I have been going to Shaolin Do Kung Fu for about five years now. I participate both in Kung Fu and Tai Chi and have nothing but great things to say about Mstr Duncan and the program. He is one of the best teachers I have come across. He knows how to breakdown the forms so you are able to learn the elements and as you put them together are able to do the form as designed.

I have had the opportunity to observe him with the children's program and highly recommend him to my friends with kids. He thoroughly enjoys teaching and sharing his art. I appreciate the support we have with GrandMaster Sin The and enjoy his visits twice a year to observe our belt tests.

I started out joining as a way to get healthier. I was not only able to lose a lot of weight but have improved my balance and flexibility tremendously. With all the forms that are available to us, I can see myself doing Kung Fu and Tai Chi for the rest of my life thanks to the patience of Mstr Duncan.

Round Rock Fitness Kickboxing is a blast! I started my trial back in September 2016 thinking I will give it a try... I don't know if I can do more than 1 or 2 times a week. I was totally wrong --I am so addicted! I go 3 times a week! The support from the instructors and group is so encouraging. I have made great friends here and never feel self conscious. Everyone does things at their own level. No one is trying to out do you. No one is putting you down for doing knee push ups :). We are attending for a common goal to get fit and have fun. Oh I failed to mention I feel great ! More energy, clothes fit looser, and the best benefit? Your significant other saying WOW. Give it a try you too will become addicted.

Martial Arts – The Effective After School Program

Martial Arts: The Effective After School Program

A parent’s work schedule never really syncs up perfectly with his/her child’s school

schedule. As school lets out for the day, parents are usually wondering what options

are in place for them to place their children in until they are out of work. Plus, they

want to be able to put their children in programs that going to benefit the child

versus sending them to a relative to watch television all afternoon. They might go to

tutoring, but that activity can only benefit them on an academic level. If parents are

looking for an effective, all-around activity, then they should consider placing their

children in a martial arts after school program. In doing so, parents will begin to see

great growth and benefits in their children.

Provides Great Education – Discipline and Responsibility

Just because the school bell rang, it does not mean that a child has to stop receiving

educational content in an after school program. Martial arts teaches kids how to be

disciplined and responsible. The routines associated with martial arts require

precision and practice in order to perfect the stances and activities. Students are also

required to upkeep their uniforms and belts. They are taught to respect the instructor

as well as one another. This type of conditioning in the class allows students to

become more mature and responsible. Building this foundation at a young age will

produce healthy habits as they grow into teenagers and soon after, adults.

 

Can be a Place to Make Friends

Children can find it very difficult to make new friends. They may feel uncomfortable

in the process and sometimes feel rejected for being what is considered to be

“normal” in the school social worlds. Kids can be harsh and when a child is exposed to

negative social settings, it can be traumatizing for the rest of their lives. The good

thing about putting a child in martial arts is that he/she will get the chance to easily

make friends in the program. The other children in the class already share a common

interest with one another: martial arts. They all understand the routines and the

disciplines behind the activity. Sharing the same mindset allows children within the

class to become friends easier and support one another. There are also routines that

involve students working with a partner which is a great way to foster teamwork and

accountability.

 

Encourages and Provides Physical Strength and Fitness

Especially in America, more and more children are becoming obese because of the

lack of exercise and poor nutrition. Martial arts after school programs offer a great

way for children to practice physical fitness every single day. There are warm-up

routines that help students center their thoughts and stretch to prevent injuries.

Then, the remaining routines build their muscle and promote great posture. The

students are able to become physically strong which is not only good for their bodies

but their minds as well. This is because they build a sense of self-confidence as they

see their strength grow. They also learn great methods of self-defense, which is ideal

for any person of any age.

 

Finding an after school program that provides a multitude of benefits for a child can

be difficult. Martial arts classes are a great option as they can give a child an

education that no other activity ever could. It gives a child benefits that affect their

minds and bodies, all at the same time. It teaches children to become responsible and

matures, traits that cannot be matched by any other program.
