How Do I Get Started? / How Do I Get My Child Started?
All of our students start the same way, with a free, no obligation trial lesson and then our Quick Start Program. It’s great for beginners with no prior experience. The quick start course includes both private and group instruction, so that new students can try out the program in a suitable environment. One of the great things about this program is that it gives us a chance to evaluate your progress and abilities while giving you the opportunity to observe classes, see the facility, meet the instructors, and learn about the benefits of martial arts and kettlebells. Fill out the form on this page to contact us today about getting started and schedule that first lesson. Every journey starts with a single step…TAKE THAT STEP!
What Should I Bring/Wear To Class?
The number one DG accessory: water! Except for the classes that require a uniform, we suggest comfortable athletic attire. Shoes are not permitted on the gray mats but may be worn on the black mat. Should you have questions about specific questions about your particular class, just ask any instructor—or fellow student!
What’s The Most Important Thing I Can Do To Prepare My Child For The First Martial Arts Class?
Start with positive expectations. If you express to your child that you believe they can do something, they will probably think so too. Keep in mind that your positive expectations need to be age-appropriate and attainable, which is where we’ll come in to help. Our instructors understand the importance of the steps involved in learning, and will encourage and instruct a child while reinforcing the benefits to learning. Our instructors are trained to meet the needs of each individual, as well as how to reinforce proper development and behavior with little or no disciplinary action. We've established a positive atmosphere that makes learning and growing fun.
What Should I Do If I Can’t Make It To One Of My Trial Classes?
If you can’t make it to one of your designated trial classes, just let us know! All you have to do is give us a call at (610) 363-7575, and we’ll schedule in a new class for you.
Do I Need Any Prior Martial Arts Experience?
Nope! Our Adult Martial Arts program is completely progressive. We teach you everything need to know in order to safely and effectively train in martial arts. We take great pride in being a “technique first” system. This means our program is based first on safety and helping you develop perfect technique. Many people who take our classes have never done martial arts before, but quickly fall in love with it.
