American Karate - The Original Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)
The Karate University was founded on March 15, 1972
in Weatherford, Texas by Mr. Bob Nuttall. Mr.
Nuttall was identified as one of the first
professional Mixed Martial Arts type fighters in the
United States. As a champion fighter, tournament
Director, and Bodyguard, Mr. Nuttall has trained city,
county, state, and federal Law Enforcement Officers
(often going out in the field with these officers).
Many prospective students are concerned about
learning and practicing this art. Concerns such as
Self Defense being too difficult, stressful and/or
harmful on the body, which can happen in many styles
of Martial Arts. Others are concerned with "close
or ground grappling" styles where in today's
environment, communicable diseases may be an issue.
TKU teaches "Tried and Proven" self defense
techniques designed for sudden and serious
situations where students learn that they can indeed
stand and defend themselves against one or more
American Karate combines several styles of Martial
Arts, from Stand-up striking and kicking styles to
ground techniques. This combination gives you
the strongest form of Self Defense. One would
hope that they are never put into a situation to
have to use this training, however if you are
attacked, you would definitely want to be able to
handle the situation. American Karate gives
you the edge in fighting one or multiple attackers
and provides you with more options and opportunities
to defend yourself.
The Karate University provides for the safest in
training, with the use of padded flooring, to the
personal safety equipment required for all
participants. Safety equipment provides for and
minimizes the chance of injury to you and those that
you are working with.
The Karate University employs the best "tried and
proven" training techniques and instructors that
have proven their knowledge and abilities in
Youth Karate Program - Respect, Discipline, Attitude,
formative years of a child's life, all parents' need
resources away from home to supplement the values
and desires you have for your children. In a world
where divorce is as common as marriage, commitment
needs to be part of their lifestyle training.
Good or bad, big or small, children will quickly
understand, appreciate, and respect themselves.
They will use their best manners, "Yes Ma'am", "Yes
Sir", "Thank You", and eye contact when you speak to
them. The respect and discipline that has been so
lost in our country will become a natural way of
life. At the same time they will be learning a
Self-Defense taught in such a way they know only to
use it is if they know in their mind and hearts
someone is trying to harm them. Every child deserves
the self-confidence and self-discipline this program
Our program has been proven over the 40+ years we
have been training. Our proven promise is "You will
see a difference in your child, after the first
class.". Many of our members started as children
themselves and now bring their children to their own
classes. All of them having one common goal, the
betterment of oneself.
Martial Arts is a Lifestyle - People read books, watch
videos, and go to seminars to better themselves. How
would you like that environment around you on a
continual basis? Our program is a lifestyle you instill,
by being around and working with positive, courteous,
and motivated people. You will learn Self-Defense,
Awareness, Evasive Techniques, as well as the Powerful
Kicks and Hand Strikes of the Martial Arts, all while
conditioning your body mentally and physically.
