Mark and Anna opened Mountain Eagle Karate in 2001. In addition to operating Mountain Eagle Karate, the Gormans have created a character development program for kids built around “life skills” for success. This program is a primary focus for our kids' classes and has been taught to thousands of Albuquerque children through the Gorman’s partnership with APS, and private charter schools.
Over the years, Mark and Anna have also designed and taught countless seminars on topics including Womens' Self-Defense, Child Safety, Stranger Danger, Cardio/Fitness, Tournament and Performance Skills, Self-Defense, Ground Defense and Grappling. Renshi Mark holds a 7th degree black belt and Sensei Anna holds a 4th degree black belt. Renshi Mark and Sensei Anna have won numerous awards in competition at the local, state, regional, and national levels. Sensei Anna has won the National Championship twelve times and holds the record in the USKA. Both Renshi Mark and Sensei Anna are USKA Hall of Fame members.
The Gormans enjoy operating in a family environment and participating with people of all ages to become the best that they can be. The theme for Mountain Eagle Karate is “fly like an eagle”.
Our mission is to provide a valuable, fun, and exciting martial arts experience for kids and adults in every class, every time.
We strive to create:
Mountain Eagle will not only teach you impressive kicks, powerful punches, strategic strikes, and mighty throws, but our classes will also empower you with important values such as respect, ultimate focus, integrity, and compassion.
