Frequently Asked Questions

Kids Martial Arts

Q: “Will Martial Arts, Karate, Tae Kwon Do make my kid violent?”

No way! In fact, martial arts makes kids calmer and more respectful than ever. Martial arts always has been about peace, and it always will be.

Q: “Do kids get injured in Martial Arts, Karate, Tae Kwon Do?”

Sometimes. But the truth is, injuries are very, very rare here. We have a lot of measures in place to keep your child perfectly safe. In fact, safety is our #1 concern.

Q: “Can my child do Martial Arts, Karate, Tae Kwon Do if they are not the athletic type?”

Yes! In fact, martial arts is often a “home” for kids who don't excel at team sports. Kids who have trouble in baseball, basketball, etc. often come to martial arts and do extremely well. And it's okay if your child is not athletic right now. Through our classes, they'll get in great shape and become very athletic.

Q: “Do kids enjoy Martial Arts, Karate, Tae Kwon Do? Do they stick with it for a while?”

Kids have a blast here. There's smiling and laughter throughout every class. We have our moments of intense concentration and focus... but we always balance things out with fun and games to keep everything alive and light.

Q: “Will Martial Arts, Karate, Tae Kwon Do improve my child's confidence?”

Yes! Martial Arts is a powerful source of confidence for kids. They practice hard and learn techniques in order to advance through the ranks. And as they advance, they fill with pride. After all, they're the ones doing all the work - so they feel all of the accomplishment whenever they learn a new move... achieve a new belt... or get praise from their fellow students and instructors.

Adult Martial Arts

Q: “What level of fitness is required for martial arts?”

You'll get in shape as you go. You don't have to be in great shape to start.

The great thing about martial arts is you can be at any fitness level and do great. That's because there's no rush or pressure to do anything quickly. You can learn at your own pace.

If you have a knack for it, you can speed through techniques. If it's a bit harder for you, take your time. All we care about is that you're having fun, learning and progressing, and staying safe.

Q: “Is there violence involved in martial arts?”

People often mistake self-defense for violence. We teach self-defense here.

Self-defense means doing everything in your power to AVOID violence! It means being diplomatic and peaceful. In fact, people who have had problems with violence in the past often become peaceful and balanced through martial arts.

Q: “Is there a risk for injury with martial arts?”

Any sport or form of exercise comes with a risk of injury. However, there are a few things that make our program very safe. It's because of these few things that we barely see any injuries with our program.

Warm Up Exercises: At the beginning of every class, we go through a series of warm up exercises. These exercises get your muscles and joints ready and warmed up for martial arts training.

Supervision: Every class is supervised by trained, certified professionals. We watch carefully to make sure no student is doing anything in a dangerous or unsafe way.

In short, we place a tremendous amount of focus on fun and safety. It's because of this that we feel confident telling you that while there is risk for injury with our program - it's a very small risk.

Kickboxing

Q: "Are both group & private classes available?"

Most of our members enjoy the group setting, but private sessions are available too depending on instructor availability.

Q: "How many people are generally in a group class?"

Normally around 15-30, with more instructors added as class size grows.

Q: “Are there other beginners in the classes?”

Yes, classes are full of people of all experience levels - including total beginners.

Q: “Will you help me with my nutritional habits?”

Absolutely. Nutrition is KEY to weight loss, and we'll pass along the powerful knowledge we've put together over the years. (By the way, our nutrition program is all about naturally improving your diet - NOT forcing foods on you that you don't like or starving yourself).

Q: “Is your class a ‘Cardio Kickboxing' class?”

No! These classes are very, very different from Cardio Kickboxing. It's hard to describe how much different they are, but once you come in you'll see for yourself ;-)

Head Instructor

Sifu/Guro Yusuf A Muhammad has been a practitioner and student of the martial arts for over 46 years and has been teaching for over 38 years.

He started in the martial arts at the age of 9 by studying Tae Kwon Do. However, he did not consider himself a serious student of the arts until the age of 14 when he began his studies under Master William "Chuck" Jeffreys.

Under Master Jeffreys, Yusuf learned Tien Shan Pai Kung Fu, but the philosophy of the teachings said that a true martial artist is not confined to a particular style. Therefore, the teachings explored various styles of martial arts. Some people today may call this Mixed Martial Arts.

As such, Yusuf chose to explore and learn various styles. Throughout his many years of practice, Master Yusuf has studied and mastered numerous fighting disciplines.

Rankings & Achievements

" ["welcome_note"]=> string(2163) "Dear neighbor, My name is Yusuf Muhammad, head instructor of our martial arts school here in King George.

That way you too can enrich your life, learn self-defense, and get in great shape too. Together, these three elements lead to a happier, healthier life. After all, for thousands of years, martial arts has been a tool for inner-growth and development. The hard work and patience required to perfect each move builds discipline, focus and determination. The desire to advance through the ranks develops goal setting and ambition. The rush of passing tests, and seeing how far you\'ve come builds confidence and pride. And the increased energy that comes with getting in good physical shape gives you a boost to bring even more fulfilling activities into your life. But it doesn\'t stop there. You also learn self-defense to keep yourself and your loved ones safe and sound. And while you may never have to use these skills in a real-life situation - just knowing that you CAN protect yourself will give you peace of mind. In fact, the confidence you\'ll exude is enough to diffuse most situations before they ever arise. After all, attackers like to focus in on weak individuals. When you emit strength, confidence and pride - it\'s enough to keep most of them at bay. Helping you succeed in martial arts is the only goal of our King George program. Everyone here - each of our martial arts instructors - is passionate about helping you succeed, have fun, and enjoy the time you spend here.
