freestyle-martial-arts-renoClean, organized, roomy, professional – these are the hallmarks of a well-run martial arts school. Do the training rooms feature first aid kits? Is there room to watch your children’s classes? What kind of equipment is available, and what shape is it in? If your first impression of a school’s facility isn’t positive, be sure to carefully consider whether this is a reflection of its quality of service. Chances are, it is.

They began martial arts as children or youth, reached their first, second, third and fourth-degree black belts at the school. They know our curriculum inside and out, and they know what it means to be a student in our school. This is more than a livelihood – it’s a passion that they’re excited to share with you and your children.

Ask what they like about it and how long they’ve been there to get a good sense of the school.

A school’s martial arts influences and style should be secondary to the instructors and the class dynamic, but it’s still smart to learn about the skills being taught. What are your goals with a martial arts education? If it doesn’t really matter to you, opting for the best teacher is a safe bet.

But before asking you to commit, there should be adequate time to attend classes, assess the atmosphere and decide whether this is the right school for you.
