Is there a risk for injury with martial arts?
Any sport or form of exercise comes with a risk of injury. However, there are a few things that make our program very safe. It’s because of these few things that we barely see any injuries with our program.

Stretching: At the beginning of every class we go through a series of stretches. These stretches get your muscles and joints ready and warmed up for exercise.

Supervision: Every class is supervised by trained, licensed professionals. We watch carefully to make sure no student is doing anything in a dangerous or unsafe way.

In short, we place a tremendous amount of focus on fun and safety. It’s because of this that we feel confident telling you that while there is risk for injury with our program – it’s a very small risk.

Do you have to be in good shape to take martial arts?
Not at all! In fact, many people use martial arts as a way to get in good shape. They come to us out of shape, and quickly become athletic and limber.
Is there violence involved in martial arts?
People often mistake self-defense for violence. We teach self-defense here.

Self-defense means doing everything in your power to AVOID violence! It means being diplomatic and peaceful. In fact, people who have had problems with violence in the past often become peaceful and balanced through martial arts.
