What do I wear when I first start classes? Do I need to
buy a uniform right away?
When you are first starting out simply wear what's comfortable,
we recommend sweats or a t-shirt and shorts. No you do not
need a uniform to start and do not require one officially
until you are testing for yellow belt.
When do I pay my class fees? Do I pay monthly or for a longer
period of time?
Class fees are collected at the beginning of each month.
You are only required to pay one month at a time but you
can pay for several months in advance if you wish.
Do you offer family classes?
Yes you can take our classes as a family and we
offer special discounts for multiple family members. Visit
our rates page for more details.
Can I come in to watch a class or try it out?
Yes we recommend trying out a class before committing to
our club. For more details visit our How
to Join page.
How often do you offer testing for your next belt level?
As it stands now we will evaluate each student's progress
monthly. If a student is ready and has put in the proper
time requirements they will test at the end of that month.
Is there a lot of contact in Taekwondo, is sparring a required
part of the class?
For beginners there is little or no contact until
they are trained in the basics of Taekwondo. As you progress
light sparring is a part of the class but in a controlled
and relaxed environment.
Are you required to compete in tournaments or competitions
on behalf of the club?
No, you can compete in tournaments only if you have interest.
In order to compete in tournaments however you must receive
an invitation from the instructor.
