A: We recommend two classes per week, plus a certain amount of practice time in between classes as the perfect level of training. This allows the student time to work on material between classes and become proficient before new concepts are introduced.
Q: Will there be other beginners in my class?
A: At Martial Arts America, all students are grouped by age and by rank. In this way, you will be in a class with students at your age and skill level. In addition, we have assistants in each class that are ready to help you in class and also to help you quickly learn about the school from an existing student.
Q: Will the Martial Arts America program make my child overly aggressive?
A: At Martial Arts America, children are taught that the martial arts are not to be used in aggression, but rather to defend oneself in problematic situations. Aggressive behavior is channeled into assertiveness to increase the child's self esteem, increase self discipline and build character. Our program also helps the shy child to develop self confidence and become more assertive.
Q: Will my classes be safe?
A: Absolutely. All classes taught at Martial Arts America are strictly monitored to ensure complete safety.
Q: What about sparring?
A: Sparring is the interactive aspect of training and skill development. All students interested in sparring are required to wear the best protective equipment available on the market and are strictly supervised. Consequently, the chance of injury is very small.
Q: How long will it take me to become reasonably proficient?
A: The time it takes to become proficient varies with each individual depending on the effort they put forth. At Martial Arts America, students are very often amazed by their own ability and accomplishment in as little as six months. This training will give you the confidence of knowing that you can defend yourself in most situations. Your real goal, however, should be to attain the rank of Black Belt. This level of proficiency typically takes about three to four years. Once again, however, this will vary depending on your level of effort and desire.
