Not at all. We relish having the opportunity to train with people brand new to martial arts as well as those already with some experience. Our classes are designed to ensure that everyone regardless of skill level has a good experience.

Yes! we offer a one week free trial. Click on the link at the top of the page to learn more. You certainly can bring a friend – sometimes people feel more comfortable trying something new when they have a friend to partner up with. In addition, it’s easier stick to a new hobby when you have a friend to help keep you motivated.

We like to mix things up to keep it exciting, but a typical class will start off with a brief warm-up. Sometimes the warm up will be calisthenic-type movements. Other times it will be a functional warm up where we incorporate movements that will be used during the technique portion of the class. Then the bulk of the class will be spent performing techniques that the instructor demonstrates. The instructor will monitor and help you drill the moves correctly until you are able to perform them without help.

You can park in the parking lot attached to the building – it can be busy in the evening so come a little early if you can.

Yes – we offer both on alternating days. See our schedule page for more information.
