James Holan

Our Approach

Hi, my name is Master James Holan,

and I’m very PROUD that hundreds of families all over the Irving area are singing the praises of our programs and telling their friends and neighbors how much of a positive impact it’s having on their lives.

Texas Karate Do has become a landmark of Irving martial arts!

Get started now and find out how you can be healthier, happier, and more confident with Texas Karate Do training!

Physical and Mental Development

Our members tell us that they feel our school is more of an institution of self-improvement, physically and mentally, rather than “just” a gym or some “activity”.

I pride myself on helping our adult members safely build muscle, quickly burn fat, gain flexibility, and release stress in a FUN, positive, and injury-free environment! And for the children, parents all over the Irving area give my martial arts classes credit for increasing their child’s ability to focus, building their self-esteem, and igniting a passion for self improvement they never would have expected.

Much More than “Kicking, Punching, & Grappling”

Although many people think the martial arts are just about fighting, the truth is that the physical “kicking and punching” are really just the “tools” that I use to teach the more important, and MUCH more valuable lessons about “yourself”.

When you train in our Irving martial arts program (which also serves Dallas, Fort Worth), you take advantage of the best self-improvement system in the world.

Through the practice of physical self-defense skills, you will follow a blueprint for a successful life based on discipline, focus, and perseverance. Please take a few moments to browse this website, get familiar with us, then, take me up on my “No Strings Attached” offer, and see the benefits of my Irving martial arts program for yourself!
