We recommend that you train at least two times per week. Successful self-defense training is largely dependent on developing muscle memory. Being able to retain the information and recall it quickly takes practice, repetition, and drilling. But the right amount of training is really a personal decision based on age, body type, work and family schedule, etc. We recommend that you start with a moderate schedule and work your way up to more frequent training as you go.
What should I bring/wear to class?Chris Lee2019-11-15T13:56:47-05:00
Wear comfortable, clean, tasteful clothes that you can work out in and whatever shoes (optional) you would normally wear day to day. Students are free to use MMA style gloves for striking. For beginners and guests, we have loaner gloves at the center that you are welcomed to use. A mouthpiece and groin protection (for males) is not required but highly recommended. We recommend students bring a water bottle as well.

Do I have to be in good shape to join or try a class?Chris Lee2019-11-15T13:56:13-05:00
A typical class will start with a dynamic warm-up which could include functional training drills, functional fitness drills, partner drills, calisthenics and body weight exercises. This will be followed by some sort of striking techniques/combinations and self-defense principles. Class will end with a final drill. Our classes are a mixture of supportive, fun, serious, focused and goofy. There are moments of intense concentration… moments of fun & games… moments of encouraging one another to keep going and do your best… and so much more. It’s a vibrant blend of fun, focus and passion.
