Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

  • My child is out of control. Can martial arts help?

    Yes. Self-control is essential to the study of martial arts, and our students learn that they must be the masters of their actions and emotions.

  • I don’t want my child getting into fights. Won’t martial arts make them want to fight?

    No. Martial arts has its roots in self-defense, but we teach children that violence is not the answer to their problems.

  • My child hates sports – won’t they hate martial arts too?

    Some kids who come to us are resistant at first, but martial arts instruction is both fun and active. Many kids think that martial artists are cool and that can help them stick with it even if it’s hard at first.

  • What skills will my child learn to help themselves do better in school?

    Martial arts training teaches focus, discipline, self-control, and respect. These traits help children let go of petty grievances and learn to pay attention to the things that are most important to their future success.

  • My child isn’t physically coordinated. Will they get hurt?

    No. Our instructors are experienced working with children of all abilities and ages. Your child will learn at a pace that is comfortable for them, and in environment that puts their physical safety first.

  • Can martial arts help my child have faith in their abilities?

    Yes. Kids who study martial arts learn that hard and persistent work pays off. Each small success helps children believe in themselves and have faith they can achieve their next goal.

  • My teen doesn’t respect me at all. Can studying martial arts change that?

    Yes. Respect is a core value in our martial arts school, and all students learn to respect their instructors, fellow students, and their parents.

  • I can’t believe how poor my teen’s judgment is. Can studying martial arts make a difference?

    Yes. Martial arts classes require teens to learn and then apply lessons to decisions in real time in our martial arts school. That’s a skill that they will carry with them everywhere they go.

  • Will taking martial arts classes make my teenager less prone to making careless and thoughtless decisions?

    We teach teenagers the value of respect, discipline, and judgment, and they learn that knee-jerk decisions are often not the right ones.

  • My teenager feels like they have a target on their back. How can studying martial arts help?

    Teens who study martial arts learn to carry themselves with strength and confidence, and that makes them less likely to be targeted by bullies. They also learn how to defend themselves if necessary.

  • My teenager spends all day playing video games – won’t they resist the idea of taking a fitness class?

    They might – but martial arts classes are fun and social, and kids also see them as cool. We’re used to a little resistance, but we also know how to get teens interested in what we teach, and keep them interested.

  • My teenager starts things and gives them up all the time. Why should I expect martial arts to be different?

    Teens who want to excel in martial arts must make a commitment to continued study. We can’t guarantee that your teen will stick to it, but we can tell you that our instructors encourage persistence and teach teens that they can’t achieve their goals if they give up.

  • I don’t feel good about myself. Can studying martial arts make me feel better?

    Yes. Martial arts instruction combines physical fitness with mental strength, and people who feel fit and strong are also confident.

  • I don’t think of myself as an athlete and I was never good at sports. Can I do martial arts?

    Yes. Martial arts instruction is tailored to each student’s capabilities and goals, so anybody – at any fitness level – can benefit from studying martial arts.

  • I live in a tough neighborhood and I don’t feel safe at night. Can studying martial arts help me feel better?

    Yes. Studying martial arts builds physical strength and mental resilience, and makes many people feel confident about their ability to defend themselves.

  • Do people really study martial arts to make friends?

    Yes, it happens all the time. Everyone in the class has an interest in martial arts and fitness, and that gives people a good starting place to build new friendships.

  • I do better with workouts when I have a friend with me. Can my friend and I take classes together?

    Yes, we love it when friends come in together. Working out together can help strengthen your friendship and help both of you meet new people, too.

  • I’ve always thought of myself as clumsy and un-athletic. Can martial arts make me more graceful?

    Yes. Martial arts instruction focuses on building core strength and improving balance. As you become more aware of your body and its capabilities, you will feel less clumsy.

  • Do I need to be in shape before I start Kickboxing?

    Short answer; absolutely not! We have members of all health and fitness levels, and our classes are designed to fit around each one of these levels.

    The only thing we ask is that you bring your best attitude when you come to one of our classes. If you have the mental framework determined to become physically healthy, that is all we want to see. Our trainers will help you get into the best shape of your life!

  • Can I lose weight with the Fitness Kickboxing program?

    Of course. Although, we must say you get what you put in. If you follow a consistent workout pattern, you are bound to see the results you want. On average, kickboxers burn an average of 820 calories per hour.

  • Do I need any kickboxing experience?

    No, we love teaching new members. There is no better way to gain respect from our community than someone who has the will to join our class without any experience. If you can take that first step, you have already proven to our group that you are a strong-minded individual. We will teach you everything you need to know.

  • Does the physical training include weights or machines?

    Most of the training comes from the natural, isotonic, aerobic, anaerobic, and isometric exercises, although, some weight training may be recommended or used. These exercises help our members with losing weight and toning the whole body; our focus is for you to develop speed, flexibility, and force.

  • What should I wear or bring?

    Sweats and a T-shirt, or yoga attire, work best. You’ll also want to bring a towel and a bottle of water. And of course bring the mental attitude that you’re going to kill this workout!

  • How often should I attend classes?

    We understand how busy your life can be; we would love to see you at least once a week. We believe once a week will be a good start for you to build your overall endurance and capability to implement the basic kickboxing moves.

    Once you have built the basic foundation of the Kickboxing moves, we encourage you to then increase the amount of frequency and intensity of your workouts. We want you to go at your own pace, but make sure to challenge yourself to see the best results.

  • How much of the planning will I have to do?

    We can’t decide who to invite, and there are a few other details that you’ll need to be involved in, but we’ll take care of planning activities, providing supervision and instruction, and handling the set-up and clean-up for the party.

  • Who will be supervising the party? I don’t want my child’s friends’ parents to be worried.

    Experienced martial arts instructors will be on hand to make sure that kids learn in a safe and carefully supervised environment.

  • My child loves martial arts but I’m not sure about their friends. Will they have fun, too?

    Of course! Even kids who have never studied martial arts can find something to love at our parties. They might discover that they have a real gift for kicking and punching (in a controlled environment.)

  • I don’t want my child to learn that violence is acceptable. Won’t giving them a martial arts party make them think it’s okay to be aggressive?

    Not at all. Martial arts instruction teaches that students must respect instructors, one another, and themselves. We never encourage aggression in or out of our martial arts school.

  • I’m worried that my child will be bored. Is the whole party like a martial arts class?

    No. Basic martial arts instruction is part of the fun, but we also provide kids with fun activities and games during the party. Nobody will be bored.

  • What if my child decides they want to take martial arts classes after the party?

    We’d be thrilled to have your child as a student. We can provide you with information about age-appropriate classes to take home and review at the end of the party – and the same goes for your child’s friends’ parents, too.
