Everyone was a New Beginner once...
Joining our Karate classes for the first time is a really easy thing to do. The information on this page will help you and if you have any concerns please don't hesitate to call us at (734) 447-3000 or send her an email via the Contact page.
Karate is an activity to be enjoyed with no pressure on the student (or Instructor) to reach a particular level/grade in a set period of time. You will improve in your own time with the guidance and assistance of the Instructor and your classmates.
As a new student at our Karate classes you are asked to be respectful and polite and nice to your class mates. Improvement and any new grade comes with time and practice. Your instructor and your class mates will help you along the way. They have all been in your position once and they all understand what it's like to be "the new student".
We offer a FREE class so come along, have a go and we all hope to see you join our Karate Classes. If you don't like it, it hasn't cost you anything.
You can come and watch a class if you'd prefer.
Of course, you don't have to watch a class at all. You can register for your trial class and jump right in!
Here are some questions you might have:
What do I wear?
For your first class you don't need a Karate suit (unless you have one already). We recommend wearing loose fitting sports clothes like:
- track pants, cotton pants, cricket pants, leggings or shorts.
- tee shirts or short sleeved polo shirts
What do I do when I get to the training facility (Dojo)?
It is good to arrive about 10 minutes before your class starts so you can be ready for the class.
Do I need to bring anything to my first class?
Always bring a drink bottle with water in it. No fizzy drinks or sports drinks please.
What if I don't like the training and I don't want to join?
No problem. Not everyone likes trying something new. If you have a trial lesson and decide it's not what you want then we hope to see you in the future.
What can I expect in my first class?
You will be joining a general class so other students will already know some Karate. Don't let that worry you. This is just your first lesson to see if you want to join. It doesn't take long to learn how to do the techniques like punch, kick, block and step and the teacher always makes sure you don't get left behind.
