Frequently Asked Questions / FAQ
Are you really a Christian Martial Arts dojo?
Yes! We believe in Jesus as our Lord and saviour and that he died for our sins, and 3 days later rose from the dead. We pray after every class with our students and make sure that our dojo / club always feels warm and welcome to every student that wants to train with us. We do not allow any Instructor to teach, unless they are a born again Christian.
Do you have any rules at your dojo?
Yes! That is a must to make sure things never get out of hand. Our rules are as follows: Hand and toe nails have to be cut and clean (Scratches with nails in fighting causes infections). No swearing allowed inside the dojo! It might be okay for you to swear at home, but there are people that does not like to hear the swear words constantly while they are training. No one under the influence of alcohol allowed inside the dojo! This is pretty self explanatory. Not only does alcohol change people’s behaviours, it also increases the chances of serious long term damage when being hit. Most other rules are common sense but will be updated here shortly. If you respect the people around you, you will be fine.

What do I need to wear for the first training session?
You can just wear any comfortable clothes to train in. Keep in mind we do practice kicks in the classes, so we would not recommend a Jean. We also train barefoot on our mats. You are more than welcome to come with shoes, but the shoes needs to be taken of before stepping on to the training mats.
Do you sell any training clothes?

While training in normal clothes, you might find them not always being able to withstand the types of training we do. Our pants for example are made to easily allow you to kick without the pants restricting your movement.

Do I have to grade for my next belt?
Again not really something we can force on students, but this is something we will be encouraging people allot to do. Grading for the next belt gives a number of benefits not only in martial arts, but in your everyday life. After testing yourself, you will have more faith in yourself and your techniques. Primary and High Schools have tests to make sure people push themselves further in life, the same with martial arts. By testing you will be able to learn more and push yourself to become a better martial artist. The benefits are really limitless.
