Beginner's FAQ

  • When do I need to buy my uniform?
    We recommend purchasing your uniform as soon as possible as it can help you settle into class quicker. You can purchase your uniform as soon as you sign up if you wish.
  • I'm not very fit! Is this a problem?
    Not at all! Participating in martial arts classes will increase your fitness, and the more you train, the fitter you shall become. We are very considerate towards beginners and we encourage you to take classes at your own pace, certainly at the beginning.
  • Do I need to wash my belt?
    We do not recommend washing your belt, as it can both discolour and misshape them.
  • How long does it take to become a black belt?
    This varies per class and is entirely dependent on your commitment to classes. In Tae Kwon Do, it takes 3.5 years, provided you train twice a week and pass every grading.
  • What should I do if I have an injury?
    This depends on the placement and the severity of the injury. If you feel that you can still train, please inform the instructor prior to the class so they can advise you on any exercises to avoid and offer some alternatives.
