FAQs


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

First, to test their abilities and see where their strength and weaknesses lie.  We like to see how your striking ability looks and then look at your ability to move on the ground.  It is very important to anaylize how your body moves to know where we need to focus our attention on you.


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

I have been involved in the martial arts since 1982.

Since this time I have received blacks in many arts; from traditonal to MMA styles of martial arts.  I have worked with skilled fighters, law enforecement to the average person who has no skillls.  I also competed over the years in different types of sport events of martial arts and worked as a professional body guard for 8 years.  Working is beginners is where I enjoy the most these days.


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

Our fees are $85/month.  If a new student purchases two months of training, they receive ONE month free.  We are not a commercial business and all instructors teach for free.


How did you get started teaching?

It just came with the training, it was only natural to teach what I had spent a great deal of my life learning.  I have always loved the martial arts since I was a child, now I get to share my hobbie with all those who join our school.


What types of students have you worked with?

The beginner (civilian) all the way to special forces for military combat.  Young and old, we currently do not have a kids program, but if a parent were to join and bring their child with them to class we welcome them.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Having a night at our school where each level of belt training was tested and achieved their personal next level.  Success as a teacher.


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

Find a teacher that can understand your skill level and help you understand more about yourself. It is not always about just finding the art, but finding the teacher. I suggest looking for a teacher that loves what they do and has a well versed background in each system they teach.  Last but not least, it should not be about the money - but teaching the beauty of the art in its true form.


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

One question always to ask is the goals of the instructor with their students, many schools are based upon finacial gain, I teach for free - this is my hobby.  My interest is purely in the advancement of the system and the student involved.  So, the ultimate question should be, why do you really want to learn martial arts? (Fitness, Self-defense, Focus, Discipline, etc.)
