Kids Martial Arts

Will Martial Arts make my kid violent?
No way! In fact, martial arts makes kids calmer and more respectful than ever. Martial arts always has been about peace, and it always will be.
Can my child get injured with Martial Arts?
As a parent, I'm sure you've seen that kids can get injured doing just about anything. Martial arts is no different, however we take safety very seriously here. Yes, injuries do sometimes happen. But we do everything in our power to avoid them. We do special exercises and stretches to make your child's body limber and flexible.
My child isn't athletic. Can they still participate in Martial Arts if
they're not athletic?
Absolutely. Martial Arts teaches kids to be coordinated, flexible and strong. Kids who don't naturally have these qualities develop them. Kids who do have these qualities grow them even more.
Are these Martial Arts classes fun?
Yes! After all, these are children we're dealing with here. And kids love their fun. We do a variety of games and activities that have kids howling with laughter, and constantly smiling. We work hard here - but we play just as hard.

Kickboxing

Q: "Are both group & private classes available?"
Most of our members enjoy the group setting, but private sessions are available too, depending on instructor availability.
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: "Will my class be in a group or 1-on-1?"
Most likely you'll be in a group class. However we gladly offer private classes for those that are interested. Feel free to ask any of our instructors for more info on private classes!
Q: "How many people are in a group class?"
At peak times, there's between 15-30. Some times have more, some less. But we make sure to have enough instructors to match the class size. That way you always get the attention you need.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Q: "Will this be really hard on my body? And is it violent?"
People who do Brazilian Jiu Jitsu 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 are ready to defend themselves. So no, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu 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 help you succeed. It may be hard, but not enough to cause injuries. It is just hard enough to form a great calorie-burning workout.
Q: "Do I have to be athletic or flexible or anything?"
Not at all! In fact, many of our students are those who didn't enjoy other sports. Many of them were not athletic before joining this class. Now they're in better shape than 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.
Q: "Will I get hurt?"
Any physical activity can lead to injury, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is no exception - but because we place so much care in keeping you safe .... We hardly EVER see injuries here. We guide you through the correct way to do each technique. This way, you don't harm your body. We also show you how to stretch properly, further reducing your chances of injury. You go at your own pace, so you don't force your body to do anything it's not ready for. Students who pick up on BJJ quickly are just as valued as those who need to slow down, and learn at a different pace.

Mixed Martial Arts

Q: Do I have to be in shape or lose weight before I begin training?
A: No, you don’t. We will ease you into the discipline of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) training and the initial exercises. Regardless of your fitness level, once you begin training, you’ll start to get in shape and feel immediate, positive results. Getting started in our classes is the best way to start losing weight. As you continue training, the ability to maintain your ideal weight will be much easier.

Q: Will learning Mixed Martial Arts help my child/teen in school?
A: You bet! Because of the physical and mental demands of the training, students develop better skills of focus, discipline, and determination to do their best which helps them tremendously in their academics, as well as in their extra-curricular activities. The same holds true for young adults when it comes to college and adults at their jobs.
Q: Is Mixed Martial Arts appropriate for women and girls?
A: Absolutely! Our classes have a good number of women and girls learning MMA and achieving their fitness goals. Many of the self-defense techniques are great for females especially because they rely on speed and accuracy as opposed to brute force. And kicking is one of the most efficient ways to tone muscles, fast.
Q: How often should I come to class?
A: There are no set rules for how often to practice. Some students come several times a week while others come only once a week. The benefits of MMA are numerous and include strength, flexibility, balance, coordination, focus, and self-discipline to name a few. We believe that you will find how often to come to class based on what works best for your body, schedule, and life.
