Jamaica Gleaner - - MESSSAGE -

Are in­struc­tors first aid and/or CPR-cer­ti­fied? Yes. Sifu Matthew and Sije Ta­mara are cer­ti­fied in both.

How young will you ac­cept kids into your mar­tial arts classes? Usu­ally, the academy ac­cepts chil­dren no younger than four years old. How­ever, they have had some three-year-olds who have been able to man­age the class suf­fi­ciently. Par­ents are en­cour­aged to let their chil­dren try the class and see how they man­age.

Will mar­tial arts classes en­cour­age my child to be vi­o­lent? No, quite the op­po­site. Mar­tial arts teaches chil­dren to be dis­ci­plined, re­spect­ful and peace­ful. They are taught to avoid fight­ing and only use the mar­tial tech­niques they have learnt in class if they have no other choice.

Will I be able to do the fit­ness classes even if I am a begin­ner? Ab­so­lutely. The classes cater to all fit­ness lev­els, and you will see a va­ri­ety in each class.
