Welcome to the Pit Austin!  

Are you ready to train in martial arts?  Learn self-defense, get physically stronger, and feel more mentally confident and calm.  For a lucky few, you may even learn how to compete in professional martial arts competitions.  

We gear our class programs for what you are hoping to get out of training.  There are training schedules for:

  • weight loss and fitness

  • learning a specific style of traditional arts like Hawaiian Kempo, Praying Mantis Kung Fu, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, or Tai Chi…Earn your black belt!

  • competition and fighting

  • kids, adults, and more “experienced” martial artists

Master Hughes has been training Austinites in martial arts and fitness since 1995.  His goal is to help people get strong and healthy with his unique training system.  

The classes are challenging, but we like to say that anything worth earning is not easy!  You will be proud of yourself for finishing a class.
