Yours in the Martial Arts,
Japanese Martial Arts Academy
HERE ARE SOME QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT
What do I wear?
For your first class you don't need a Karate suit (unless you have one already). Sensei recommends wearing loose fitting sports clothes like:
* track pants, cotton pants, cricket pants, leggings or shorts.
* tee shirts or short sleeved polo shirts
* NO SHOES or socks
What do I do when I get to the hall?
It is good to arrive about 10 minutes before your class starts.
Do I need to bring anything to my first class?
Always bring a drink bottle with water in it. No fizzy drinks or sports drinks please. It is a good idea to also bring a jumper or jacket, even in summer. Make sure your name is on everything. If you leave things behind Sensei will put them in the storeroom and you can collect them next week.
What if I don't like the training and I don't want to join?
No problem. Not everyone likes trying something new. If you decided it's not what you want then we hope to see you in the future.
What can I expect in my first class?
You will be joining a general class so students will already know a bit of Karate. Don't let that worry you. This is just your first lesson to see if you want to join. It doesn't take long to learn how to do the techniques like punch, kick, block and step and the teacher always makes sure you don't get left behind.
In your trial class you might be asked to sit down during some of the class. This is for your safety as we might be doing some things that are a bit technical and we wouldn't want you to get hurt in any way.
