Q & A

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

We bring a new student in for a trial period, generally seix weeks, to see if our program is a good fit for the student, and vice versa.  In the first few classes, an instructor works with the new student 1-on-1 on the basic aspects of our training.


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

SiJo Parker holds a 10th degree Black Sash in Kung Fu, along with many other high-ranking degrees in other systems.  He has been teaching martial arts for over 25 years.


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

We have several standard programs, which we discuss with the student after he or she completes the trial period.


How did you get started teaching?

SiJo Parker opened his first school in Pennsylvania in the 1990's after a long career in the martial arts.


What types of students have you worked with?

We have worked with every type of student - 2 year-olds through students in their 70s, students with physical handicaps, and special needs students such as those with autism or ADHD.


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

Make sure that there is a good bond with your instructor, and that you have fun in class.


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

What goals am I looking to accomplish, and how much of a commitment of time anf effort am I willing to put in?
