Frequently Asked Questions

How much is a full membership?

We charge the standard Harford County rate for Martial Arts instruction. Most families are used to recreational sport costs, which makes the cost of Martial Arts seem expensive. It's just unexpected. Think about it like this: When you sign up for Football, you are learning a sport. That's it. When you sign up at a Self-Defense and Character Development Academy such as our own, you are paying for a) individualized coaching, b) learning practical life skills that schools don't even teach, c) and learning how to safe guard your own life (and possibly someone else's). These are clearly of higher value than learning how to throw or kick a ball really far.

When can I or my child start?

As soon as you'd like (contact us so our Manager can share what spots we have available). Unlike recreational sports, Martial Arts are not seasonal. This goes back to their ultimate goal which is to turn the student into a better version of themselves. And that is not something we ever stop working on.

Do I have to sign a contract?

Every business which requires you to have a card on file for auto-pay makes you sign a contract. This is state law. At our studio, we have Training Agreements which outline our protocols and processes. You probably mean to ask, "can I cancel whenever I want without a penalty?" Our cancellation policy is a 60-Day Notice, standard for most businesses in Maryland. 

We are very upfront with our clients; if your goal is to lose weight, learn self-defense, or for your child to learn a particular life skill, you are asking us to hold you accountable of accomplishing you/your child's goal. This means we will do everything in our power to encourage you/your child to remember why you originally started and avoid the one failure in life, quitting.

I'm out of shape, can I still do this?

Absolutely! Our instructors prioritize safe training above anything else; meaning, you can work out without the fear of injury to help meet your fitness goals! Beyond that, 85% of people that inquire about a Martial Art are not in the shape they'd like to be in. Martial Arts are fantastic for cardio, strength training, conditioning, flexibility, and even teaching us how to deal with stress in everyday life. Stress affects you physically and mentally.

My child has issues focusing/listening at home, can this help?

It can. However, discipline starts at home. We consider ourselves partners with parents; by all of us being invested in your child together then we can guarantee results.

I'm older, is it too late to start?

It's never too late to find a new passion/hobby. We have many success stories from older students who claim to feel 'younger' after training consistently for several months.

Can parents watch their children train?

Oh, yes! We highly encourage parental participation. The more your child recognizes that you're invested in what they're doing, they too will become more invested in healthy activities.
