What To Expect

Classes are held every Sunday from 4:30pm-6:30pm. Please book your free trial class in advance of attending. Once you sign up for your free trial class, you can just come to class on your scheduled date. Please arrive a few minutes early to get checked in and set up. 

 

Once you arrive and get settled in, you'll have to sign the training waiver. We'll give you a brief tour of the school and layout that day's curriculum.

 

Feel free to bring a water bottle and towel. You can wear normal athletic clothing, a t-shirt and shorts are fine. The are no shoes allowed on the mat, but you can wear clean wrestling, boxing, or mat shoes. 

No training equipment is necessary, but if you decide to continue training, we recommend investing in some equipment such as 16 oz boxing gloves or 7 oz padded MMA gloves, a mouth guard, cup (for men), headgear, and shin guards. 

Typically, our classes start with a brief warm up (about 8 minutes), then we go into stretching. After stretching, we start with JKD fundamentals and core training. Toward the middle of the class, we move on towards application and finish with some resistant partner drills or reality-based training drills (multiple attackers, weapons, etc.)

There are no high-pressure sales tactics. Our classes are only $60/month, so if you enjoy class and it's a good fit for you, feel free to sign up on our website. Upon sign up, you'll be able to try out and purchase additional classes if you like.
