What do I look for in a Martial Arts School ?
There are dozens of martial arts styles from which to choose. First, watch a few sessions - find out about the instructors
and even the types of students who take the class. You would do well to learn with a wide variety of student of differnt
ranks within your age group. Most are taught in the oriental tradition, advanced students train with the novices.
Gradings are run 4 times a year but are not compulsory you have a choice to grade or not unlike some schools. Rank
should not be given on a schedule but awarded for achievement and encouragement.
Why should I take Martial Arts lessons?
Scientific evidence has shown that martial arts training has numerous benefits apart from learning how to punch, kick,
block and throw. The class structure itself helps students to follow direction, develop social skills, focus, concentration and
complete tasks to rewarding positive behaviour, it can have powerful lasting effects. Martial arts classes also teach anger
management, verbal diffusion skills, critical thinking and problem solving in addition to practical self defence that really
works. So not only do students achieve a more active and healthy body, but they benefit mentally as well. In a recent
study in Psychology Today from the USA found that students of martial arts have reduced blood pressure, lower levels of
anxiety and depression and improved coping skills. Martial arts training affects the great majority of the body's tissues,
organs and systems to bring about homeostatic stability and normal function. Training at optimal levels of frequency,
distance (time) and intensity can markedly reduce the risk of developing many of the chronic diseases commonly seen.
Will I be able to watch my childs class?
You are welcome to watch any class at All Stars Martial Arts Academy. We encourage ourparents to participate in their
child’s martial arts experience and often sponsor functions to which the entire family is welcome - picnics, parties, grading
Am I too old or too young to learn Martial Arts?
You are never too old to practice Freestyle Goju Karate do or Muay Thai Boran Kickboxing. Generally it is the best for
children to be aged 5 before they start taking karate classes, or 10 years old for kickboxing as sometimes their attention
span is to short at a younger age. But we have had children in class as young as 3 years old. The basic techniques you
will learn are an efficient, effective means of exercise and combined with the self-defence techniques, you will learn to be
a safer individual at any age
How long will it take to reach a Black Belt?
There is no easy way to achieve a Black Belt or Singlet. It takes learning many techniques and practicing as much as
possible on you own to become proficient. The martial arts is like any other art. Dancing, acrobatics, musical instruments
take many hours of practice to achieve the ability to be competent. Contrary to many peoples belief it takes many years
to be proficient in the martial arts and a black belt is just the start in mastery of the basics. It should take about five years
of practice for adults. In young children it may take a little longer.
