The biggest gem in Montgomery! This martial art lead by Master Instructor, Sa Bom Nim Travis Guinn, is a true martial art from South Korea that is practiced all over the world. Not only do you get great training but you get the full knowledge of the art and its philosophy which treats you like family. It's great for kids and adults from 4 to 85. SBN Travis Guinn finds the perfect balance of intensity, encouragement and fun. Soo Bahk!

When I moved to Austin after living in Michigan, I learned that there were no Soo Bahk Do studios in the Austin area. I contacted studios in the Houston and San Antonio areas. Guinn Sa Bom Nim responded to my email and offered an alternate training schedule. His instruction, flexibility, encouragement, support and patience are one of the many reasons I chose him as my instructor. I have trained with Guinn Sa Bom Nim since November 2007. He has been a positive influence in my life. I would not be the Soo Bahk Do Practitioner I am today with Guinn Sa Bom Nim.

I had been trying to get my son to start training at Montgomery Karate for two years before he finally agreed to try a class. I’m happy we waited until he was ready because for the last four years he has taken just about every single class available to him. He enjoys his training immensely. He started to teach here a year and half ago and is the Tiger Tot instructor. Getting him involved in martial arts is one of the best decisions we’ve made. Master Guinn is great with his students and every single student gets his attention. He doesn’t just teach a martial art. He teaches Discipline and Respect among many other values. Master Guinn’s students get so much more out of his class than just learning how to defend themselves!! I also started training here two years ago myself! Whether you’re looking for classes for your child or yourself you will love this studio and everything you will get from training here!

Our two oldest sons had previously been involved in another style of Martial Arts when they were young and since moving to the Lake Conroe area we searched for some time for another studio. At a time when there is a focus on cage fights, Mixed Martial Arts and related styles, we were looking for a studio that didn’t just teach an art but a discipline as well as a value system. As soon as my oldest son and I met Sa Bom Nim Guinn I knew that we had found the right place. During the past five years our older sons have progressed to Cho Dan (first degree black belt) and their younger brother has now joined as well. He hopes to one day be able to teach alongside his brothers. When we found Montgomery Karate we were looking for a strong system of values and what we discovered was a lifestyle.

Our experience with Master Travis Guinn and Montgomery Karate has been nothing but fantastic. Our son started training at Montgomery Karate five years ago. Master Guinn has a unique way of being disciplined with patience. His work ethic and core values are in line with how we are raising our kids. He believes that there is a responsibility that comes with learning martial arts, in that we need to be good people as well as good students. We couldn’t have picked a better school or instructor for our son.

As we moved to Montgomery following 25 years of military service, we were looking for a location where our children could immediately meet friends and continue expanding their aspirations in martial arts. We moved from Washington DC where both our daughter and son earned their Black Belts in Taekwondo. Upon researching the local facilities and programs we met Master Guinn. His enthusiasm, professionalism and welcoming attitude was simply amazing. Despite our children's prior black belt rank, our kids started as white belts as the Martial Art is much different than what they had been training in. Master Guinn said the experience of prior training and determination our son had helped him progress through the ranks quicker than a student with no previous training. In comparison between Soo Bahk Do to Taekwondo, we love Master Guinn's program. It focuses on the precision, discipline and technique of the sport. Master Guinn is more about the art and discipline and earning the belt upon performance less about the belt based solely upon a timeline.
