Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to have martial arts experience?
No, you do not need prior experience with martial arts training. That's what we're here for! We welcome all ages, ability, and experience levels. We do our best to adjust the classes to ensure everyone is having fun and safely working toward their fitness goals.
Should I bring anything to class with me?
The only thing we ask people to bring is good hygiene as a courtesy to the other members. It would be a good idea to bring a bottle of water with you since you'll be working hard. We do provide free boxing gloves at the gym, but we recommend purchasing your own pair. We have equipment available for purchase at the gym.
What should I wear?
Wear whatever you feel most comfortable working out in! Most people find that long sleeves and compression gear is best if you plan on participating in grappling, however they are not required.
Will I get hit?
We will never ask you to do something you are not comfortable with. There are times in class where we will practice punching and blocking with a partner, but it is always controlled and supervised. It's not required to participate if you don't feel ready. We prioritize the safety and comfort of our members, so don't hesitate to communicate any concerns you may have.
What equipment do you have?
We have plenty of things to hit- heavy bags, smaller bags, dummies, pads, kick shields, etc.
What do we do in personal training sessions?
In the first session (which is FREE!) we will go over your health and fitness goals, any physical restrictions you may have, and do a quick assessment to get a feel for your current physical capabilities. Then you will be led through a sample workout of what we do in our classes to see if it's something you're interested in. Before the end of the session we will give you some tips on how you can start working towards your goals. We offer 30 minute and 1 hour sessions.
