Frequently Asked Questions?

Can I really start martial arts training now?Yes! Martial arts is for everyone regardless of age, physical shape, and previous experience. Every student starts with a white belt and progresses through skills and movements achieving one milestone at a time. The journey of martial arts is really the journey of self-improvement!

I have an old injury, can I still train?
Martial arts was traditionally a lifelong practice for health and longevity. Anybody or body type can train. We offer modifications as needed.

What is a typical class like?
During each class, we will focus on a single skill. We start with a warm-up and then move into practicing the skill for that week through a few drills and applications. Finally, we practice our belt-testing requirements for that skill and wrap with some dynamic stretching to improve mobility and flexibility. All training happens in a safe, controlled, and supportive learning environment.

What type of martial arts is it?
We combine a system of martial arts skills that have been proven to be effective. Many of our techniques and principles come from traditional forms of Okinawan Karate as well as the Chinese practice of Tai Chi and Chi Gung.

Is karate just about fighting?
No. Martial arts is a practice of mastering the mind, body, and spirit (your general mindset and wellbeing). Most practitioners benefit from the self-defense of negativity, stress, and general life balance.

How often should I come to class?
Martial arts prepares the body to move without thinking. Your commitment should be to come to at least 2 classes each week. We recommend coming to as many classes and special seminars as possibe.
