Who We Are

The American Institute of Taekwondo (home of Dr. Judy Flury’s Karate Kidz) is the premier martial arts center for children in Grand Prairie and surrounding cities. Dr. Judy Flury opened her center in 1986, and has run it continuously since that time. What sets the our school apart from the average karate school is our emphasis on childrens’ character education, and our specialized knowledge in working with children.

Dr. Flury is a personality psychologist, and has worked with children for over 30 years. We have over 200 children in our school, and every one of them is special to us – we work with each child to help them become a better version of themselves!

Our classes are explicitly customized for children. We combine traditional, disciplined martial arts training with fun and exciting drills. This format gives children the best of both worlds – the focus, confidence, discipline, and respect that is provided by traditional training; and also a lot of fun!

Through these classes, children stay motivated to keep setting new goals of higher and higher belt rank, and they enjoy coming to their classes and working hard to achieve their goals. They learn that hard work pays off, and they have a blast in the process!

About Our Founder

Dr. Flury began her martial art training at the age of 12, and has been training for the past 33 years (she is currently a 5th degree black belt.) Once she started her Taekwondo training as a 12-year old, martial arts has remained a life-long passion for her.

In addition to the martial arts, Dr. Flury’s main focus is working with children. She has worked with children in various capacities for over 30 years now. In 1986, when Dr. Flury was 17 years old and a junior in high school, she combined her two loves of teaching children and performing Taekwondo by opening the American Institute of Taekwondo.

Since opening her school in 1986, Dr. Flury has taught thousands of Grand Prairie Arlington and Mansfield children, and has produced many black belts. Once graduating from high school, Dr. Flury ran the school while also attending college, earning a doctorate in personality psychology from the University of Texas at Arlington.

Dr. Flury is on the faculty board of the Martial Art Teacher’s Association and was named “Instructor of the Year” by the USA-Korean Karate Association for three years in a row, until the association decided to put a limit on how many times a single instructor could win the teaching award.
