Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do I need any previous experience to start martial arts?

A: Absolutely not. We train in a cooperative environment where the student can ask questions and learn the details of each technique. Therefore, NO previous experience is necessary.

Q: How many days a week do I have to attend class?

A: We recommend at least 2 days a week.

Q: Are there any additional costs other than the monthly fee?

A: As you move into sparring classes, you will need to buy protective gear. The cost of protective gear can range from $85.00 to $145.00 but it should last quite awhile. The only other cost is promotional testing which varies according to your level of belt. ($40.00 for a white belt to $120.00 for a Black Belt testing)

Q: How do you promote students?

A: Promotional testing is monitored by a panel of Master Black Belts. They grade the students on the required techniques for their particular belt level. Promotional testing is every 2 months on a Saturday. If a student has met their requirements for testing, they will be allowed to test for the next belt rank. If the student is not quite ready for testing, they simply wait for the next opportunity in 2 months.
