Frequently Asked Questions

Adult Martial Arts

Q: “Can martial arts cause injury?”

Every form of physical exercise, from running to walking to martial arts, comes with a risk for injury. However, our program is run by trained experts who place a tremendous focus on injury prevention.

Because martial arts makes you more balanced, limber & flexible - it generally leads to LESS injury in people's lives. Not the other way around!

Q: “What level of fitness is required for Martial Arts?”

People come to us of all fitness levels. We get natural-born athletes, and we get people who have a harder time with athletic endeavors. However, everyone gets the same focus and attention.

If you're not in great shape, don't worry. Go at your own pace, and we'll do everything we can to help you learn each and every technique. Soon enough, your physical fitness will improve, and you'll be in better shape than ever!

Q: “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.

Kids Martial Arts

Q: “Do kids get injured in Martial Arts, Karate, Tae Kwon Do?”

Sometimes. But the truth is, injuries are very, very rare here. We have a lot of measures in place to keep your child perfectly safe. In fact, safety is our #1 concern.

Q: “Can my child still participate in martial arts, karate, tae kwon do if he/she is not athletic?”

Yes! In fact, martial arts is kind of a beacon of light for kids who just don't fit into team sports. Kids who never could throw a ball well or run fast find that martial arts is accessible to them. It's something they excel at, and as a result, their confidence soars.

Q: “Is Martial Arts, Karate, Tae Kwon Do fun for children?”

Absolutely! In fact, kids usually have to drag their parents to Martial Arts class - something parents are always shocked to see. We have our serious moments here where kids work and learn... but we have just as many moments where they goof off and have a blast!

Q: “Do children's confidence & self-esteem grow with Martial Arts, Karate, Tae Kwon Do?”

Absolutely. Kids with low self-esteem often come out of their shells. As their skill level increases, they feel more and more confident. Other kids look up to them, just as they look up to other kids who are ahead of them. It builds a sense of confidence, pride, and teamwork.

Q: “How old should my child be to start Martial Arts, Karate, Tae Kwon Do?”

Any age! Most kids range from 5 to teenagers, but we have kids who are younger, too. Classes are customized to suit children of different ages. A teenager receives very different treatment than a 6 year old, for example.

Q: “Is Martial Arts, Karate, Tae Kwon Do for boys AND girls? Or just boys?”

Martial arts are for boys and girls. Our classes have a good mix of both, too. So if you're worried about your girl being alone in a group of boys, wipe that worry from your mind!

Q: “Does Martial Arts, Karate, Tae Kwon Do make kids physically aggressive?”

No way! Martial Arts is about peace, harmony and diplomacy. It teaches children how to AVOID fights - not pick them.

Kickboxing

Q: "What type of classes do you offer? (Group or private?)"

Both! Most members opt for group classes, but feel free to ask any of our instructors for more info on private sessions.

Q: "How many people are generally in a group class?"

Normally around 15-30, with more instructors added as class size grows.

Q: “Are there other beginners in the classes?”

Yes, classes are full of people of all experience levels - including total beginners.

Q: “Will you help me with my nutritional habits?”

Absolutely. Nutrition is KEY to weight loss, and we'll pass along the powerful knowledge we've put together over the years. (By the way, our nutrition program is all about naturally improving your diet - NOT forcing foods on you that you don't like or starving yourself).

Q: “Is this similar to 'cardio kickboxing'?”

No, our classes are extremely interactive, and involve real-life boxing equipment like punching bags & gloves. This is nothing like cardio kickboxing!
