American Karate and Taekwondo Organization in Dallas, Texas has launched a new website
The A-KaTo has launched a new website.
I trained with A-KaTo, then called Southwest Taekwondo Association, from 1991 to 1996, and joined their ranks as a young black belt from another style. Up to then, I had 8 years of martial arts experience, but was never more warmly greeted by any other martial art school.
My teacher Sensei Bryan Robbins was a patient, nurturing, and wise instructor. My other senior instructors Mike Proctor and Paul Hinkley were extremely knowledgeable and I thrived in the 'tough love' environment they provided. My relationship with the A-KaTo has changed somewhat because of the distance, but I still keep in touch with a few of my old training partners ... and have immense respect for GM Keith Yates who has just been so generous with his time. I can't talk more highly of these people. Even after all this time I dearly miss my training there.
If you have the opportunity and find yourself in or near Dallas, you should go check out their karate seminars and maybe say hi.
