Frequently Asked Questions
I’m out of shape or I’ve never done any martial arts, fighting, or Krav Maga before. Can I take a Krav Maga class?
Yes! Our classes are designed to help you find success regardless of where you are in your training or fitness level. (Seriously, you can do this.) This free trial class is one way you can see for yourself.
I’m nervous. Am I going to be welcome here?
Yep! Listen, we’re a self defense studio, which means we specialize in helping normal people learn how to defend themselves and the people they love.
We work really hard to be accepting and open to folks. If you’ve previously been excluded (or worse!) from gym, fitness, or martial arts spaces or if you’ve been ostracized because of your weight, gender, sexual orientation, or some other attribute that makes you, you, I want you to know we’re a safe place to train.
If it helps to know, we’re a woman majority owned and operated small business. Our head instructor is a passionate, competitive fighter who also happens to be a hilarious, heart-forward guy. Our classes are taught by highly qualified fight, martial arts, and fitness professionals who are lifelong learners and all around good humans who really want to teach you what they’ve learned along the way.
Great! I’m signed up. What do I need to bring with me?
Outstanding! We can’t wait to meet you. Wear clothing you feel comfortable moving and sweating in. Bring a bottle of water.
We don’t allow training with outdoor shoes on our mats, so most people train barefoot. You’re welcome to bring any athletic (non-cleat shoes) you only wear on our mats, if you’d like to train with shoes.
We also recommend a mouth guard and a groin protector, but neither of those are required.
