Frequently Asked Questions

Will i get hurt?

Any physical activity can lead to injury – and Martial Arts is no exception – but because we place such care in keeping you safe… We hardly EVER see any injuries here. We guide you through the perfect way to do each technique. That way you don’t do it in a way that harms your body.We also show you how to stretch properly – reducing your chances for injury even more. And you go at your own pace. That way you don’t force your body to do anything it isn’t capable of. Students who pick up on Martial Arts quickly are just as valued as the ones who need to slow down, and learn at a different pace.

Do I have to be athletic or flexible or anything?

Not at all! In fact, many of our students are people who just never liked any other sports. They were never athletic before joining this class. Now, though, they’re in better shape than just about anyone else they know! They’re lean, fit, and feeling great. So if you’re not athletic already – don’t worry. We’ll help you get there.

Will this be really hard on my body? And is it violent?

People who do Martial Arts are never the ones to start fights. They’re the ones who do everything in their power to avoid fights. But if a fight has to happen, they’re ready to defend themselves. So no, Martial Arts is not violent. As far as your body goes… The exercise involved may be tough for you at first. But you’re welcome to go at your own pace. This isn’t the army or anything! We’re here to support you and see you succeed. It may be a little hard on your body, but not so hard as to cause injuries. Just hard enough for a great, calorie-burning workout.

What should i wear?

If it’s your first time or you are attending a fitness class, wearing jogging bottoms or shorts and a sports vest or t-shirt is perfect to take part in – dress as if you were going to the gym. For Martial Arts member’s, you will receive a Martial Arts Uniform upon joining the academy and this should be worn in the Martial Arts classes. However, if you are new, just dress as if you were going to a fitness class or the gym.
