How do I get started in the martial arts?
One of the most common questions we get!
If you are new to karate, like many are, this may help:
Step One: First, make sure you check out all your options.
Make sure you check out all your options in the area. Call and visit every school within a reasonable distance for you to drive to regularly. You are in luck! There are some very good schools in Livingston County despite the number of schools actually being very small. So your search will not take long. It's not a question of whether one school is better than the other, or even the style of martial arts, the real question is which one is the best fit for you and your child.
Step Two: Second, schedule your first visit.
After you’ve checked out all the schools, and feel you are ready to learn more about our school, book your first evaluation/introductory session. These two private lessons with me are specifically designed to introduce our school to you, determine if your child is ready for karate and place them at the right level, and to make sure you completely understand everything about our program and how we develop children. There is absolutely no cost for these sessions. It is the best way to figure out if this is the right time and if our school is the right place for you or your child. We do not want you to start here unless you are absolutely sure this is the right place for your family.
