About Us

Trusted Guard Martial Arts Academy was started by Master Drew Barrett in 2014 with the idea of creating a community of fearless leaders, exemplar citizens and great athletic Mixed Martial Artists forming a tight-knitted family. Located in the Liberty Hill/Leander area, Trusted Guard offers top notch instruction and training for children and adults alike, having in mind the development of both body and mind through a well designed and proven system derived from the ancient teachings brought back from Korea. There are different styles to choose from according to one's wants, wishes and/or needs. Those styles include : Hwa Yu Won (Directly from Choi Family Martial Arts {Dojunim Choi, Han Young} and the Korean Royal Guard), Traditional Tae Kwon Do, as well as Jhoon Rhee Tae Kwon Do. Trusted Guard is a Personal Achievement Academy aiming to inculcate Black Belt mentality to these and future generations.
Guard your family with Martial Arts you can trust, and remember that "We Train To Win!".

We are currently teaching at Divine Christian Academy and private lessons/group classes, at the newly built out facility at Master Barrett's residence.


Why Trusted Guard Martial Arts?
There has been a recent upraise in the martial arts interest. Many people, charmed by the fights of MMA championships have turned their eyes to Brazilian Ju Jitsu, Judo, Kick Boxing, Muay Thai and even other not so specific to competitions like Krav Maga.
We at Trusted Guard Martial Arts consider any practice valuable, and have a unique approach: we believe that any Martial Art should be taught and practiced for the only purpose of developing into better human beings by defeating our own enemies through the acknowledgement of values and the principles of courtesy, tolerance and respect. We value mostly the preservation of life and defense of those who can't defend themselves physically, emotionally and mentally.

Guard your family with martial arts training you can trust.
