Hayashi's Martial Arts Academy has been in El Paso for many years. Professor Tarow Ty Hayashi established the school in 1955. Today, the Academy continues to thrive under the supervision of his son Taichi Hayashi, with the same dedication to martial arts and teaching that his father began over half a century ago. Our instructors are qualified, certified adults with years of martial arts teaching and competition experience. Several have training and certifications from around the world including the Philippines, Germany, Mexico, Italy, and Japan. Our martial arts instructors personally assist students during group classes and individually during open sessions. Open for private lessons as well.
The only dojo in El Paso that puts on martial arts tournaments . All the other gyms come here to test themselves against us.
Lots of fun classes. I especially love getting tossed around in judo.
Great way to achieve physical fitness. Train here now.
I love working out at this dojo. Sensei Hayashi is so wise when it comes to fighting (I did kickboxing lessons with him) and he has taught me proper kickboxing moves and the correct way to defend myself. It's just so much fun, you forget that you are working out, definitely try it out!
I was an assistant instructor at the Academy and trained under Master Hayashi, Master Tai, and Guru Greg Allen for several years in the 90's. Unfortunately military duty ultimately took me away. I have trained under many Masters, and had my own schools in the past, but this is best martial arts training program it has been my privilege to be affiliated. It is a brotherhood of loyal and honorable Budo practitioners, where serious martial artist can grow and be taken to the next level. You will not find a more well rounded program. It is the perfect blend of traditional and modern styles. The true meaning of balance can be found here. If you are fortunate enough to live in close proximity, and you aren't already a member, trust me, you are missing out. I hold this school and it's instructors in the highest esteem.
One of my favorite places to be. The lessons are priceless, and the people I have met at this Dojo are amazing. My niece (She's 4) loves the judo classes! There are no words to describe what you learn and take with you mentally, physically and spiritually. It's great.
Tai what to say. Great man, good heart, great family enjoyment for all ages. Young and old hayashi will bring it out of you.
Phenomenal family atmosphere. Felt welcomed from the get go! As I write this review, I find myself grinning, as I embrace my soreness. Great experience. Eager for more!
Thanks to master Hayashi!!!
