Attend Your First Class

Orientation

A teacher will orient you to our school and answer questions about our style. New students may participate on their first visit day or may simply observe class. Please bring work out clothing and a water bottle. We do have changing rooms. Orientations for the kids program are Tuesdays at 4:15 PM and Saturdays at 10:15 AM. Adults and kids 13+ may show up 15 minutes before any general or basics class for orientation. All persons under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Please fill out the form below before attending a class.

 

What to Expect

Each class begins with safety, fun, and respect in mind. We bow towards the center of the mat when exiting and entering, and we bow to the flags and the instructor at the beginning of class. Look to the color belt students for etiquette and keyops.

We listen to music while an instructor takes us through a stretching and exercise regimen. Each instructor has their own unique method, so your workout throughout the week will be a bit different each day.

The next segment is drills. An instructor calls out forms and drill with careful explanation and demonstration, and then the students practice the punch or kick series together. Drills may also include partner practice with targets or a heavy bag. Both calisthenics and drill have water breaks throughout.

Class ends with a cool down and announcements. Then we bow to the flags, instructor, and senior students. Your practice session ends with a final bow as you exit the mat.
