Normally, we have at least 2 or 3 instructors for each class. (And sometimes 4!) We don't like to wait in line either. Waiting for 15 or 20 students to perform their skills one at a time is...well...boring. Kids shouldn't be bored at karate class. They should be engaged, smiling, working hard and at least a little bit tired when they're done. By running multiple stations or splitting the class into groups, your kids get 2 or 3 times the attention of other schools. And as we grow, we are already planning to add more help when needed.
Private lessons (aka privates) are included in your tuition. These privates sessions enable you to quickly learn Shaolin Kempo. Being the only person or one of just a few means we can focus on teaching you all the details and subtleties of a kata, a weapons form, or sparring skills - whatever you and Sensei decide you want to work on...light sabers anyone?
There's not too many places around that offer training in Shaolin Kempo. This discipline is a unique blend of traditional Japanese Karate, Chinese Kung-fu and adds elements from Jiu-Jitsu, Judo and others. Mostly, it's an awesome system for gaining the classical martial arts benefits of focus, discipline and respect while learning an incredible practical system of self-defense. Shaolin Kempo is not a 'sport'. It's not on TV or featured at the olympics. It's a way to protect yourself from a person or persons that want to do you harm. It's as simple as that.
We don't do sparring sometimes or every now and then - we do it every week! We have a class dedicated just to sparring! Why are you learning karate if you're not going to spar? This is a safe and secure way to develop the actual skills that will protect you. Our instructors will show you how to overcome your fears of being hit and of hitting others. It's all good - lots of padding and protective equipment and most importantly respect for your opponents.
