Q I'm out of shape. Am I going to be able to keep up in class?

That's what we're here for! There's no sense trying to "get in shape" before you sign up. Just get started! All that we ask is that you try your best, and you keep moving! With time, your strength and endurance will increase, and things will get easier. Yes, it will be challenging, but most of the best things in life come with hard work!

Q I'm Not Very Sporty or Coordinated, Will That Be A Problem?

Not at all. In fact, many students starting in our adult martial arts classes would describe themselves like that before they started. So you will fit right in!

Give yourself some time, and you will be astounded at how much you improve! You’ll find that our very experienced martial arts Instructors are trained to keep their teaching simple. So even the most uncoordinated person will develop ‘ninja-like’ skills! Come see for yourself!

Q Will My Child Become A Bully?

A specific part of our preschool and kids martial arts classes at Arizona Shotokai USA is teaching respect, and teaching when to use their new self defense training and when to NOT use them. We find that our students become more confident to stand up to bullies. And have more humility and kindness to others through their martial arts lessons.
