About Infinity Martial Arts in Waunakee, WI

Tyler Henkel

Owner and Chief Instructor at Infinity Martial Arts in Waunakee, 6th Degree Black Belt

Infinity Martial Arts has been serving the Waunakee community since 2016. Our goal is to provide a safe and positive environment for children and adults to learn about the Martial Arts, hone their personal development skills, and become the best version of themselves that they can be.

Kids classes focus on using the martial arts to develop life skills such as confidence, respect, and perseverance. They get a real kick out of putting the POW in their punches, grappling, and performing locks. And boy does it show with all the smiles and high fives we see in every class!    

Adult classes combine fitness and Martial Arts to help each student achieve their individual goals and personal best. Every class is taught by an Adult Black Belt who understands how to keep a class smiling, sweating, and learning… while having a ton of FUN! 

Our style combines Traditional Tae-Kwon-Do, Sport Karate, Self Defense, Boxing, and Basic Jui-Jitsu to create a modern and practical art that will keep you safe, give you a sense of empowerment, and leave you incredibly fit from head to toe.

Head Instructor

Tyler Henkel is the owner and master instructor at Infinity Martial Arts – Waunakee. He is a 6th Degree Black Belt and started martial arts at Karate America Sun Prairie in 1993 under Mr. Jeff Denu. Soon after, Mr. Bill Koster took over and has been Tyler’s instructor ever since. He earned his Black Belt from Mr. Koster in 1997.

Tyler started teaching private lessons and assisting classes at 10 years old. By the time he got to high school, he was a certified instructor. He found his passion for teaching early in life and knew he would own his own school someday.

In 2003, Tyler moved to Stevens Point to attend UW-Stevens Point to pursue a Business Administration degree. He started teaching at Karate America Wisconsin Rapids with Mr. Mike Welch, founder of Infinity Martial Arts.

In 2004, Mr. Welch moved to Madison, Scott Blanke bought KAWR, and Tyler became the master instructor. He graduated UWSP in 2007, but decided to stay in Rapids to continue teaching.

Tyler had such a great experience in Rapids, but the time came for him to move on and pursue his own personal dreams and goals. In January of 2016, he decided to move to the Madison area so he could join the Infinity organization and open an Infinity Martial Arts of his own.

Mr. Henkel competed on the local and regional level in the beginning of his martial arts career and by the time he was a senior in high school was competing on the national / world level almost every month. He loved competing individually and had some great success with it. He found a real passion for competing in the team events. Tyler had a team of students from Sun Prairie that would travel and compete with him at the national tournaments, as well as demonstrating at local events. Those students ended up filling his instructor role at KA Sun Prairie when he moved up to college and committed full-time to KA Wisconsin Rapids.

While in Wisconsin Rapids, Tyler coached a competition / demonstration team named Special Forces. They competed in martial arts and talent competitions, but their greatest joy was performing for the community. Inspiring others through the demonstration of the martial arts is a joy and thrill. He is excited to provide the students of IMA Waunakee with the same opportunities.

Tyler couldn’t be more excited to be in the Waunakee community and looks forward to providing the best martial arts instruction and guidance he can!
