ISSHIN RYU KARATE
WHAT TO EXPECT
We recommend for you to come in 15-20 minutes before your first class to get fitted for a uniform and take a tour of the facilities.
We recommend attending 2-3 classes a week if your schedule allows for it. This will improve confidence in the skills learned and boost self-esteem.
Beginner classes all warm up together and then break apart into smaller groups. During your first couple of classes you will work with a Sensei (Japanese term for "teacher") to start learning basic blocks, punches, kicks and terminology.
Parents can watch their children from our waiting lounge or benches in the hallway.
We have men's and women's locker rooms where personal items can be stored during class (ie: shoes, jackets, clothes, bags).
WHAT TO BRING TO CLASS
Wear your gi (uniform) and belt to every class.
When you start learning sparring and weapons, make sure you bring all of your equipment with you to every class. The instructors will teach different things each class so you will want to be prepared.
Feel free to bring water or a sports drink with you. We also have a drinking fountain available and bottled cold drinks for sale in our pro-shop.
