Our Martial Artist Creed
As a Martial Artist I will respect my family and my home.
I will endeavor to bring honor to my art.
I will pursue my education to the best of my ability with integrity and respect for my parents, teachers and fellow man.
I understand that violence is weakness and that compassion is strength.
Dr. Michael J. Bainton, PhD 1993
South Austin's unique programs combine academics, self-defense, and discipline through an art form called BA KI DO. Developed by Sensei Dr. Michael J. Bainton, BA KI DO builds balance, speed, eye-hand-coordination, and situational awareness through practice based on his over forty years of experience in law enforcement in the United States, Canada, and with the United Nations. Sensei Bainton opened the studio in 1992, and has continued to be active, including earning a world record in knife throwing. His multi-disciplinary approach drives excellence in our after-school program, summer camps, and all-ages evening classes.
Students learn to balance school and fun, too. Our kids maintain an average GPA of 94.4% while many participate in multiple after-school activities.
We offer an award winning After School Program which extends to a Summer Camp* during Austin I.S.D.'s summer months. Our nights are filled with evening classes year round Monday through Friday which includes Saturday morning classes throughout the year. All of our programs are month to month and require no year long commitment; simply a 30 day written notice to discontinue the program.
*Summer Camp Program does not require a month long commitment. See Summer Camp page or contact us for details.
