Frequently Asked Questions

Kickboxing

Q: "Are both group & private classes available?"

Most of our members enjoy the group setting, but private sessions are available too depending on instructor availability.

Q: “How many other people will there be in my class?”

You can most likely expect 15-30, give or take a few depending on the day / time. We always make sure there are enough instructors no matter the class size though.

Q: “Are there other beginners in the classes?”

Yes, classes are full of people of all experience levels - including total beginners.

Q: “Can you help me with my eating / nutrition?”

Absolutely. We offer nutritional guidance as part of your membership (at no additional cost).

Q: “Is this similar to 'cardio kickboxing'?”

No, our classes are extremely interactive, and involve real-life boxing equipment like punching bags & gloves. This is nothing like cardio kickboxing!

Relentless Krav Maga

Q: “What kind of physical shape do I need to be in?”

Any! We have Krav Maga students who are in great shape, and others who aren't. Everyone has a great experience, and learns a ton in every class. Those who start out in not-so-great shape often get in shape very quickly. So if this is you, have no fear! Just come and enjoy Krav Maga.

Q: “Can I participate in these Krav Maga classes if I have a medical condition?”

If you have a medical condition, or past / present injury, we advise speaking to your doctor before starting our Santee Krav Maga classes.

The good news is you can adjust your pace to match your physical ability. If you have to go a bit slower than the rest of the class, that's just fine. And no one will judge you. You'll have tremendous support.

Q: “Can I get injured?”

Injuries are very rare here. We've put a lot of work into designing a program that's both fun & effective - while being extremely safe. Our Santee Krav Maga classes have a track record for being injury-free.

Q: “What's the environment of these classes like? Are they fun? Serious? Etc.?”

Our classes are a good mixture of fun & focus. Every class has moments of serious concentration, blended with sheer fun & laughter. After all, all work and no play makes for boring Krav Maga classes!

Kids Martial Arts

Q: “Does Martial Arts, Karate, Tae Kwon Do make kids violent?”

No way! Martial arts is about peace, harmony and diplomacy. It teaches children how to AVOID fights - not pick them.

Q: “Can my child get injured with Martial Arts, Karate, Tae Kwon Do?”

As a parent, I'm sure you've seen that kids can get injured doing just about anything. Martial Arts is no different, however we take safety very seriously here. Yes, injuries do sometimes happen. But we do everything in our power to avoid them. We do special exercises and stretches to make your child's body limber and flexible.

Q: “Can my child still participate in martial arts, karate, tae kwon do if he/she is not athletic?”

Yes! In fact, martial arts is kind of a beacon of light for kids who just don't fit into team sports. Kids who never could throw a ball well or run fast find that martial arts is accessible to them. It's something they excel at, and as a result, their confidence soars.

Q: “Do kids enjoy Martial Arts, Karate, Tae Kwon Do? Do they stick with it for a while?”

Kids have a blast here. There's smiling and laughter throughout every class. We have our moments of intense concentration and focus... but we always balance things out with fun and games to keep everything alive and light.

Q: “Do children's confidence & self-esteem grow with Martial Arts, Karate, Tae Kwon Do?”

Absolutely. Kids with low self-esteem often come out of their shells. As their skill level increases, they feel more and more confident. Other kids look up to them, just as they look up to other kids who are ahead of them. It builds a sense of confidence, pride, and teamwork.

Q: “Do boys AND girls take Martial Arts, Karate, Tae Kwon Do?”

Yes! We have a good mix of both girls and boys in our kids martial arts classes! Some people think that the boys are much “stronger and tougher,” but in reality this is not true. In fact, often girls are the stronger ones!

Q: “What's a good age for a child to start Martial Arts, Karate, Tae Kwon Do?”

Honestly, practically every age is a good age to start! We have children as young as 6 years old, as well as teenagers. We also have specific programs for adults. So no matter where you or your child is on the age spectrum - we've got you covered.
