About Andre's Martial Arts
Martial arts is my lifelong passion. I started practicing when I was 20, and started Andre's in 1980 in order to share my passion by teaching others.
We specialize in teaching children (including children with disabilities) martial arts, which is more than just a movement: it's a lifestyle that encourages respect, discipline, and happiness.
We are also conveniently located in the Burbank Mall, so you can drop your kids off while you shop, or take care of your errands in one trip.
What differentiates us
We are one of the only schools in the State of California to offer martial arts training to Deaf/Hard of hearing, Autistic and kids and adults with other disabilities. We have highly qualified, trained and certified ASL instructors for these classes.
We also have zumba classes, dance classes, and martial art parties.
How we were trained
I am now a pioneer in the martial arts industry having attained my 8th dan black belt in Taekwondo from Korean governing bodies, my 8th dan black belt in Hapkido also from Korea, an 8th dan black belt in Hwarango also from Korea and an 8th dan black belt in Shotokan Karate from the Okinawa Karate Federation in Japan.
Why we love what we do
Ever since I was a little kid I had a passion for learning and mastering the martial arts, but due to financial and job related conditions did not have the opportunity to pursue them until I was older. At the age of 20, I was living and working in the Middle East for an international airline. During my stay there I was lucky to meet my first karate master, who introduced me to Shotokan Karate. Practicing martial arts was a dream come true for me and from that day on, I never looked back. Martial arts became an integral part of my life.
