Q: “Does Martial Arts have a high risk of injury?”
With any form of exercise or sport, there is a risk of injury. Truth be told, we rarely see any injuries with our program. This is due in part to the fact that we take teaching very seriously. Our facility, although a Self-Defense academy primarily, puts the safety of our students first and foremost. We watch each and every class very carefully to reduce the risk of injury to our students.
At the beginning of each class, our coaches go through a muscle-specific stretching routine to warm-up the muscles we are going to use during that class.
In short, although any sport or activity does have a risk of injury, we do our best to make sure our students learn, have fun and go home safe.
Q: “Can I start Martial Arts if I’m not in good shape?”
You don’t have to be in great shape to start our program. As a matter of fact, it is quite the contrary. Our classes are a great way to get in shape while learning a skill that could potentially save your life. What a great combination!
Q: “Is it true that Martial Arts is violent?”
Although there are some forms of martial arts that can be considered violent, our programs teach students how to survive a violent encounter. In order to do that, we have to teach some techniques in an aggressive way, but make no mistake; keeping our students safe is a top priority of ours.
We teach students how to be more aware of their surroundings and increase their situational awareness. This will help recognize a potentially bad situation and learn to remove yourself from it.
Learning this way will best prepare you for a hostile situation and equip you with the tools to keep you and your loved ones safe.
