Q & A

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We use a base curriculum that everyone has to learn regardless of age or size.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am a 2nd Degree Black Belt in Okinawa Karate and have been training since 2004. I have been teaching for 7 years and have owned and operated my dojo since 2012.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Depending on the program we charge a monthly fee with a special introductory price.  Please call us for more details.


How did you get started teaching?

I started teach beginner students when i was a brown belt. I took over the dojo where i trained and taught.


What types of students have you worked with?

All ages from 3 and up and Special needs kids.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

My advice is to do some research on the martial arts schools in your area. Ask yourself, "What do I want to get out of my training?" "How much am I willing to pay?" and "What is my level of commitment?" Call around and try out a class.

Some schools focus on "sport karate" meaning they teach for competition. Some schools focus on "self defense" meaning they teach you how to really defend yourself against attack. Some schools do a fair job at both. If you see a ton of trophies at the school then you can tell they focus on competition.

Some schools require a long term commitment using contracts and to buy their equipment, patches and uniforms. They want to upsell you elite programs. i.e. Black Belt Club, etc.

Some schools will give you a black belt in 2 or 3 years of training.  Good schools should take a minimum of 5 to 6 years of training to earn a black belt.  


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

1) Do i have to sign a contract?
2) How long does it take to get a black belt?
3) How many students do you have?
4) How many in a single class?
5) How much does it cost?
