Master Ola Myszka is the owner of our karate studios and chief martial arts instructor. She has trained in both the art of Tae Kwon Do and Tang Soo Do and currently holds a 4th degree Master's Belt in the art of Tang Soo Do. She is a certified instructor with the World Tang Soo Do Association and is an International Certified Judge. Her years of training and extensive experience in martial arts makes her an effective instructor capable of teaching students of all ages and skill levels how to perfect their technique.
Tang Soo Do is a traditional form of martial arts in the sense that we are not sport oriented; our purpose instead is to teach self defense, promote a healthy lifestyle, and help students become the best versions of themselves through our martial arts training.
Formerly known as Rocket City Tang Soo Do, the Rocket City Academy of Karate is part of World Tang Soo Do Region 6. We are a family-orientated martial arts / karate studio, where families and students of all ages can learn core values and life lessons in a clean, safe atmosphere. Master Myszka, Rocket City Academy of Karate's chief instructor and martial arts expert, focuses on a balanced approach to life where karate students strive to become better people as well as better martial artists through the practice of karate and self defense.
The practice of karate and traditional martial arts forms like Tang Soo Do has a unique ability to improve one's individual physical, spiritual, and mental health. By exercising both the mind and body, a martial arts practitioner can find him or herself feeling balanced.
Life is unpredictable, and there isn't a single person who would not benefit from learning self defense skills. In our karate classes, we teach students how to defend themselves and give them the confidence that they can hold their own.
Our martial arts classes emphasize the importance of having discipline, benefiting themselves and those around them. Our karate lessons teach students to respect those around them, follow instructions, and never quit.
In addition to teaching discipline, our studio strives to include the promotion of many other important values in our lessons. Karate is not only a physical sport, but one that helps people of all ages adopt important values that extend beyond martial arts lessons.
The Rocket City Academy of Karate is a family-oriented studio where families can strengthen their relationships by practicing martial arts together. Additionally, a karate class is a great place for anyone to make new friends and have fun.
Practicing martial arts, especially in a studio like ours, is an enjoyable, fun-filled experience. Learning new things and perfecting your skills keeps the mind active, and there's nothing like the feeling of getting an award or moving up in the ranks. It won't take long for you to fall in love with martial arts.
