Program & Pricing FAQs

My child isn't athletic. Can he/she still participate in martial arts?
Absolutely. Martial arts teaches kids to be coordinated, flexible and strong. Kids who don’t naturally have these qualities develop them. Kids who do have these qualities develop them even more.
Are these martial arts classes fun?
Yes! After all, these are children we’re dealing with here. And kids love their fun. We do a variety of games and activities that have kids laughing and smiling. We work hard here – but we play just as hard.
What's a good age for a child to start martial arts?
Honestly, practically every age is a good age to start! We have young children, as well as teenagers. We also have specific programs for adults. So no matter what age – we’ve got you covered.
Can martial arts cause injury?
Because we place such a huge focus on safety and injury prevention, we’re proud to say that injuries are very few and far between with our program. In fact, because martial arts gets you in great shape, and makes you strong and flexible, people often see LESS injuries in their lives.
Do you have to be in good shape to take martial arts?
Not at all! In fact, many people use martial arts as a way to get in good shape. They come to us out of shape, and quickly become athletic and limber.
Is martial arts violent?
No! Because self-defense technique is taught in martial arts, it’s often thought of as violent. However, the philosophies behind martial arts revolve around peace and harmony. The moves are more of a way to become connected with your body. We teach diplomacy and friendship. However, if a violent situation ever arises in your life, you’ll have powerful tools to defend yourself and your loved ones.
