FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


  1. When should children begin studying martial arts? Children can start as young as 4 years old. Their individual attention span and interest level will determine when they are ready.
  2. Is there an age limit for when an adult can begin training for the first time? It is never too late to learn martial arts as long as the student does not have a serious medical condition that prevents it. Adult students find that martial arts becomes an activity they enjoy for their entire lives.
  3. What if I have previous injuries? Will martial arts training make them worse? It is best to consult a doctor before attempting rigorous physical activity, but many adult students report that pre-existing physical problems lessen or disappear as a result of improving their overall fitness through martial arts training.
  4. What if I am overweight, have never done any serious exercise or haven't been active for many years? You may experience some initial soreness, but this passes quickly and as you continue to train and become stronger, you will feel and look better.
  5. Can I learn to protect myself through martial arts or is that just something you see in the movies? Our school offers classes that teach students self-defence techniques that can be used in real-life situations. This is particularly useful for children and women as it empowers them and reduces the chances that they will become victims of violence.
  6. My schedule is pretty busy. When would I have time for the training? Child, adult and family classes are available Monday through Saturday, in the mornings, afternoons and evenings. Private lessons are also available.
  7. Will I see real results if I train in the martial arts? The following benefits are associated with martial arts training:

"If only I could lose weight and keep it off."

                      "I wish I had more energy"

                "Why do I always get picked on?"

                                      "I'm afraid to go places alone!"
