Does getting into "Fighting" Shape sound GREAT to you? Would You Like to Gain the COURAGE, CONFIDENCE and ABILITY to Totally Take Charge of Your Life?

Here at Austin Fitness Martial Arts we offer an impressive array of curriculum and programs no matter what your goals are. Kung Fu, MMA, CrossPit Fitness or Kickboxing Fitness.


For thousands of years, the people of China have looked to Kung-Fu as a way to develop the self mastery to overcome any obstacle, and achieve the personal power to win in life!

I don’t blame you. You’re thinking, "come on… how can Kung-Fu teach me the ability take charge of my life?" Well, I’m here to tell you, in more ways than you can begin to imagine.

My name is Sifu Jeff Hughes. I’m the owner of one of the most successful Kung-Fu schools in the United States. "Austin Fitness Martial Arts" here in Austin.

For over 15 years, my schools have been teaching adults just like you the Personal Power found only in Kung-Fu. No other sport or activity can match it.

You will see yourself increase in confidence, energy and spirit. You will be amazed as you become unstoppable in your quests for…

Greater personal achievements.
Unshakeable self respect.
Increased strength and fitness, in both body and mind.
And all of it comes while learning the "Ancient Art of Kung-Fu." Look at it this way. Your first and biggest challenges comes not from "fighting for your rights on the street," or "beating up the bully at work." It comes, instead, from battling more sinister forces"


* "I’m not as smart as John."
* "I don’t get what my boss is saying."
* "I wish I was as (thin, pretty, tall) as Sandra."
* "Why does Carlos keep giving me a bad time?"
* "Why can’t I be as successful as Steve?"
The question is, how do you get to fight of these demons? You know the problem. You have a tough time talking about them. Never mind finding a solution to conquer them.

Well, the good news is, I have a proven solution. A program that has already created many confident Black Belts. Learning these lessons is not as hard as you may think.

I call it, "Mantis Kung-Fu." Let me tell you it’s secret:

To repeat, Kung-Fu is less about you learning to fight others, and more about fighting…yourself. Your innermost fears. Conquering them, and unleashing within yourself a powerful, unstoppable force.

A force that gives you the strength to kick down the doors of your own self doubts, a force that creates in you a high level of personal power

In other words, when you use the discipline of Kung-Fu to conquer your fears, you have the power to transform that discipline to all areas of your life. I know no other sport or activity that does this better than Kung-Fu. Lifting weights or doing cardio at your local gym will not do it. (I should know. Remember, I’ve been training in Kung-Fu for 18 years and teaching it for 10 years).

But don’t take my word for it…

Now, you may be asking, how does all this "Personal Power" stuff work? And why does Kung-Fu manage to do a better job at teaching it?

Again, more than any other sport or activity, Kung-Fu gives you the chance to explore your innate powers. You’ll marvel over your increase in strength, flexibility, balance, and harmony. Yet this is only the start.

In fact, your physical skills act as a foundation for something much more powerful: The increase of Health, Longevity and an innate feeling of well being. And not cut off from your physical skills, but intimately connected – even bonded – to them.

Our Kung-Fu program will teach you:

You’ll find the courage to move outside your comfort zone. You learn to take on the challenge of learning the more difficult Kung-Fu forms and techniques. You become no longer afraid of being afraid… as you learn to recite one of our 9 Physical Skills, which goes like this, "Courage is not the absence of fear, but to act in spite of being afraid."

As you do so, you learn that whatever you sow, you reap. You learn to blame no one, but yourself. You suddenly see your life as a constant, never ending journey of life-giving improvement.

In short, with a deep breath, you refuse to become a victim of fate. You put an arm lock on your own destiny.

You learn not to give up. You stick things out. With the help of your Kung-Fu instructors, you strive harder, longer to reach your goals. Even if you fail, you still persevere. You won’t let self doubts get in the way of finding ultimate solutions.

As my Sifu (master) once said, "Where performance is measured, performance improves."

Yet, you must first accept where you stand now. That means measuring current strengths. Above all, you learn that to succeed, you can’t fool anyone, specially yourself.

This results in a keener focus. You learn to make eye contact with others (and not just in Kung-Fu class). You pay greater attention when others are speaking to you. You become a better listener and overall a better communicator.

These are just three of the powerful, energizing values you will get from the "Mastery Kung-Fu" program. In short, you can look forward to developing:
  1. Powerful Self-Control: You’ll refuse to give in the old patterns that took you nowhere in life. You will follow though in what is good for you and stay away from what is bad.
  2. Improved Focus: You’ll learn what’s needed, along with the skill to "zero in" on critical tasks at hand. Normal, yet time-wasting distractions won’t get in your way.
  3. Fearless Self-Confidence: You will build the courage to open any door life has to offer. No more will you allow opportunities to pass you by.

Towering Role-Model Instructors:

As you might guess, all of this can’t happen unless I have the very best instructors available for you. And I do. To make sure I have the very best each of them have 10 years of experience in my system and have been thoroughly trained in teaching skills. Today, they are all martial arts experts – advanced Black Belts, in fact. Many have won awards for their teaching and physical skills.

Still, you’re wondering if this will work for you. I understand. This is why I am offering you a FREE, NO obligation, Private Introductory lesson so you can see for yourself how our Kung-Fu program will transform you into this new YOU!

Read what a student has to say…

"When I first began training under Sifu Hughes I was overweight and not too confident, I also way unsure of success, I just knew I wanted to be better physically and mentally than I was. Man I couldn’t imagine finding a better school for me to do Just That! Sifu is constantly looking for ways to improve his students’ martial lifestyles, through which my own outside life has improved so much. It’s not until you begin that you realize what a lifelong journey and challenge martial arts really is. I owe a lot to Kung Fu and still have a long way to go, but I intend to be here for the long haul and look forward to things to come. I am now one year and four months in and am more fit and confident than I can remember being in my life, my fighting is always improving and so is my character, again owing thanks to Sifu Hughes’ training." – Joseph Sambrano
