How to Choose a Martial Arts School : How to Try Out a Martial Arts School


Hi, I’m Michael Payne, owner of the Academy
of Martial Arts, speaking on behalf of Expert Village. The topic that I will discuss is
what to look for in a good martial arts school. If you take a drivers education course, the
first thing that you do is learn about the car. Once you learn how things work or operate,
then you will be ready to start driving. You would not want to take drivers ed, and on
the very first day, the instructor said “OK, lets go; lets get on the highway”. You?d start
driving without knowledge and of course, this could be very dangerous. In the same respect,
I believe that students should learn how to kick, punch, and block, first. They should
know how to control those techniques, so that, when they do actually put on their safety
gear, they will have an idea of what they are doing. I would avoid a martial arts school which
makes you spend a lot of money on sparring equipment. Having kids start sparring right
away, even as a white belt, could be scary. This is because, there are going to be kids
who are very aggressive and there are a lot of kids who are passive. This is a good way
to scare off a lot of people. They will not gain the benefits of martial arts that they
would otherwise.
