Q: “Do I have to be in good shape to start?”

Absoluteloy not! Come in whatever shape you're in. If you're not in great shape - our classes will greatly improve your physical condition. If you are, then we'll help you stay in shape, and probably get in even better shape, too.

Q: “Are these classes violent? Can I get hurt?”

People often associate martial arts with violence. After all, you're learning self-defense techniques. However, there's a big difference between self-defense and violence.
