About Axon Academy
An axon is the part of a neuron that conducts electrical impulses away from it.
Like an axon, martial arts training affects other parts of life. Life skills acquired by training, such as self-control, goal-setting, and sportsmanship, transfer to other areas of life.
Practicing martial arts also connects us to something bigger than ourselves.

We teach children the "Yes, I can!" attitude. We teach them to stand tall, look people in the eye, and speak with a strong voice.
But that's not all we teach children about confidence.
We help them hone their skills, we offer a safe space for them to fail, and we equip them keep improving.
That is how lasting confidence is built.
Confident children become teens and adults who make better choices. Belief in themselves helps them see worth in others and treat them with respect and courtesy.
No matter the skill or habit, consistency is the way to achieve them. This is true of putting dishes away after a meal and learning to read as well as mastering mastering physical and life skills.
At Axon Academy, we provide a structure for students to learn. We help students set goals that can be achieved by consistent work.
Talent is great, but consistency is better.
Fostering an inclusive and positive environment is a top priority at Axon Academy. We want every student to feel a sense of belonging.
Axon families support one another, and students help and challenge one another to do better.
Axon families also realize that they are members of the larger society and contribute to their neighborhoods and cities.

MY MARTIAL ARTS JOURNEY
When my children’s martial arts instructor invited me to train, I laughed.
You see, my identity was that of a book-worm, a music nerd. Even though I grew up a fan of martial arts films, I thought learning martial arts was only for the select few who were specially gifted. It was definitely out of my league.
My instructor was persistent, and I eventually took the leap.
It was one of my best decisions.
It allowed me to discover that I could, in fact, acquire new athletic skills.
It allowed me to train alongside my children, gifting me with many more shared moments with them and creating lifelong memories.
It brought my family into a supportive community, a positive place for my children and me to thrive.
Today, I am an ATA Certified Instructor and a 4th degree Black Belt with a World Championship title.
Mrs. Chong always teaches with kindness, patience, and respect. I am so grateful for the time I had with her as my teacher.
To treat each student with respect and courtesy.
To offer the highest level of instruction.
To help each student reach their full potential.
