There is a specific process for potential students. The steps include:

  1. Please read the articles on this website’s pages: ‘About / Interest in Study Here‘. And this FAQ page.
  2. Send an email stating you have completed Step #1 and would like to pursue training here.
  3. Once we receive your email we will reply back to you and set up a time to meet in person and discuss the training here, and your training goals. This is usually at a coffee shop at a convenient location.
  4. Once scheduled to visit and observe training here, you will be asked to watch three full classes. This gives you a chance to see what training is like – it may or may not be what you expect.  It also gives the other students here a chance to meet you.  When observing, the expectation is you will stay for the whole class, and you will actually be observing – not texting, reading etc. Membership is not automatic. A judgement will be made based on you being be a good fit here.

Lastly, a suggestion when observing any potential martial training here or elsewhere, ask yourself these three questions:

  1. Do you like the martial art training activity and find it interesting?
  2. Do you like the way the students interact with one another?
  3. Do you like the way the teacher interacts with the students?

If the answer is ‘no‘ to any one of these questions, you are probably better off continuing your search elsewhere.
