Wolf Pack Karate (W.P.K.) is a division of the American Society of Karate (A.S.K.) established in 1970 by Mr. Bill Gray in Houston, Texas. The A.S.K. is an association designed to teach American Karate to ages 5-80 in a positive environment. We take a fresh approach to the art, sport and self defense aspects of American Karate. Our objective is to run a fair and unbiased program. We hold tournaments, camps and seminars to expand the knowledge of our students. Through Martial Arts students learn how to positively accept and meet whatever challenges they may encounter during their training and in life.
The ASK has taught classes in Fairfield for the past eleven years, adopting the Wolf Pack Karate name in the Summer of 2011.
W.P.K. has 4 locations in the Tri-County area with classes in Fairfield, Crockett, Centerville and Teague. All Junior classes (ages 5 – 12) are one hour long and begin at 6:00pm. Adult classes begin immediately following the Junior classes and are from 7:00pm to 8:30pm.
Presently, the A.S.K. and its divisions teach in over 125 locations throughout Texas and one in Oklahoma. The A.S.K. program is sponsored by school districts, colleges, churches and other community facilities. By working directly with these local community organizations, A.S.K. can offer a complete and affordable family-based martial arts program.
W.P.K. was started by Nicole “Niki” Miles (now Wolf) and Andrew “Drew” Wolf September of 2011 at one location in Fairfield, Texas. It is a community sponsored program which teaches American karate in a positive, professional manner.
The primary goal of W.P.K. instructors is to develop students mentally and physically by focusing on attitude, respect and discipline.
