I've been searching for months for a school like this for my son. Barry is a super coach & teacher! My son warmed up to him immediately, which was quite unique for my typically shy and reserved kid. So, so happy we found Nak!...
The amount of individual time that they both can offer during class is amazing. Walking in before class and the instructors knowing your name is also unexpected, you're not just another person here. There is no push to buy gear...
Be it Muay Thai or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu you will get much more one on one training that you would a most other martial arts schools. Everyone who I've trained with has been super friendly with no one out to prove that they are better...
This is a great gym to learn Muay Thai! There are all skill levels in the school but you will never be "fed to the wolves". The gym is very clean and instructors Barry and Jenn love what they do and it shows in how they train their students...
Welcome to our Martial Arts Academy in Issaquah
Safety means having a place you can start as a beginner and not be intimidated or concerned about getting hurt. We have beginner only classes in every program to insure that you start out not only with the technical basics, but also a comfortable environment with people at your level. Safety also means careful thought goes into the design of all our exercises. Not everyone can safely throw a 200 pound bar over their head, but there are hundreds of exercises that can be modified from couch potato to elite athlete. We will show you how.
At NAK² Academy our training programs all focus on precise technique and hard work, that is how you get results. If you want to kinda know how to do something you can get the dummies book or check out the video on youtube. If you really want to know how to do something you get a professional coach.
That is not just our job, but our commitment to you. You should also expect to work hard. There is no substitute for reps and sweat, and we do that a lot, but it’s equally important to be mentally focused in what you do. This is hard work also and it shows both on and off the mat.
Finally, we are here to build a community. Jen and I have three kids, a St Bernard, a ferret, four cats (three that hitched a ride home with us from Thailand, don’t get me started on that story), and this business. If you are like us, life is super busy. You want to be in shape, you want something to relieve stress, you want to socialize, you want to learn and improve yourself. If you have to break that up in a bunch of pieces, the commute alone will kill you. At NAK² Academy we strive to put all of those things under one roof. Martial arts and physical training are something we are passionate about and we would like to share that with you.
