Whether you’re making the decision for yourself or your child, the specific school that you choose matters a lot. And, when you’re new to martial arts, you often don’t know what to look for. For example, did you know that karate is just one kind of martial art, and then are many other options you might consider? There are many things you should sort out before you choose your martial arts school. Let us help you with these questions.

Which Martial Art is Right for You?

If you’re pursuing martial arts in Oakville, you have a lot of options and not just karate. There is also Judo, Jujitsu, Kenpo, Bo, Chinese boxing, and Taekwondo. We suggest that you take a look at the fighting style of each one and see which appeals to you more. You might also try multiple types of martial arts and see which one feels better when you’re doing it or which one has values you like best.

Which Programs Are You Interested in?

Especially for those who are considering martial arts for their children, it is wise to decide which programs or activities you and your child need and ensure the school offers them. Think of more than just classes and tournaments. For instance, our Taekwondo school offers:

  • Before and after school programs
  • Online classes
  • Summer camps
  • Winter camps
  • March break camps
  • Obstacle courses
  • Parties

How Far is the Drive?

Few people take this one into account right away. You may be so excited to try Taekwondo, or for your child to try Taekwondo, that you don’t mind driving too far. But, eventually, the distance to the school will be a bigger factor for you. If you are looking for martial arts in Oakville or in Milton, we have a location in each city. We hope you’ll find it convenient for you.

Do You Like the Coaches?  

You, or your child, will be interacting with the coach during every lesson, so it is important that you like and trust this person. It is also important to check their qualifications and certifications to make sure that they have the skills and training you are looking for.
