How do I get started?
We want to give you personal attention and the best experience possible. You can call or email to schedule a free private lesson. There is no obligation to enroll. We don't like being pressured into buying, so we won't do that to you.
What should I wear to my first private lesson?
Wear any clothing you find comfortable and can easily move around in. We only request no skirts or dresses, for modesty.
I have a 6 year old. Should I choose Lil’ Dragons or Karate?
The introductory process will give parents and the Enrollment Director the information we need to determine where your child will thrive.
My child has a belt from another school. Will that rank transfer to your system?
Every martial arts system is distinct in its ranking. Your child’s training may allow faster progression through our ranking system, but rankings are generally not directly transferable from one martial arts system to another. We will assess your child's skill level and place them appropriately to set them up for success.
How long does it take to earn a Black Belt?
Students who train consistently, generally reach Black Belt in 3 to 4 years. Adults typically progress faster than young children.
Do I have to sign up for a particular class schedule?
We are very flexible. We suggest students train 2 or 3 times per week to put in enough training time to thoroughly learn the material and progress at the expected rate. To better serve busy families, students are free to attend at different class times as their personal schedules change.
My child has a handicap. Can you teach him / her?
That depends totally on the level of the handicap. We have mild to moderately handicapped students and students on the spectrum who, as a result of strong personal motivation and parental encouragement, have done remarkably well. Our staff is not professionally certified to teach special needs children, but we do love teaching kids and helping them grow. Contact us to discuss the possibilities.
How can a Christian be involved in karate or participate in other martial arts?
Many martial arts are taught from either a non-Christian faith base or are ego-driven and may well be inappropriate for Christians. You’ll find our purpose and Christian perspective refreshing and encouraging in every aspect.
I'm not a Christian. Is this a problem?
No, we welcome all new students. However, like the physical requirements for rank progression, our spiritual requirements remain the same, regardless of your spiritual beliefs.
