Frequently Asked Questions
When do you enroll students?
We enroll year round. There are no enrollment periods — you may start at any time. Come in for a FREE Trial Session when ever it works for you.
Can family members come watch the class?
Yes. We encourage it. We provide a very comfortable area to watch classes and we even have a special play area for the younger siblings.
Are you going to pressure me to sign up at my free trial?
We guarantee a no-pressure free trial. We will let you know how you did after you’re finished with class and give you the room you need to ask more questions or take time to look over the information and think about everything.
Do you offer long or short term memberships?
We offer both. Come visit our school and we will show you all the different programs we offer. We will figure out which plan is best for you and your time/budget. Prices are based on how many classes per week and how many months you sign up for. We also have a Punch Card Program (Women's Classes and Summer Specials), Private Lesson Package (Month to Month program), and Semi Private Lesson Packages (Month to Month).
I’m not sure if martial arts is right for me…
We understand that beginning a new activity, especially martial arts, can cause anxiety. The truth is that you don’t have to be great to get started but you have to get started to be great. Take the leap, it’s worth it. We have been voted #1 Martial Arts school every year for a reason :)
What is Jeet Kune Do? I thought Bruce Lee was an actor!
Though most people remember Bruce for revolutionizing martial arts film, Bruce was also creating a revolutionary approach to martial arts training. Jeet Kune Do (JKD) is unique because we train MANY different arts- NOT just one single art like karate or tae kwon do. You will be exposed to amazing training methods even in your first FREE trial class. JKD allows us to be prepared for any self defense situation and we train the most modern combat sports.
What should I wear for my first class?
Wear something comfortable to train in ( t-shirt, shorts, sweat pants). No jeans, tank tops, dresses, etc.
What Certifications do you have?
We are the 1st Certified Gracie Jiu Jitsu Training Center under the legendary Gracie Family in the Pacific Northwest. We are also the Pacific Northwest Representative for the Progressive Fighting Systems and Descendants of the Masters. Our Instructors are also students under Guru Dan Inosanto (friend and training partner of Bruce Lee). Each of our head instructors have 20 years or more training in the martial arts. Visit us anytime, we love to talk martial arts and self defense. You will be amazed by the knowledge we have here at MMA!
We pride ourselves on being the elite instructors for our area. We do NOT believe in "weekend Krav Maga instructor courses" or Traditional Karate and Tae Kwon Do instructors teaching "MMA" and "Ground Fighting" as part of their course. We want you to KNOW that we are certified in the arts we teach and have been teaching street self defense for over 20 years. This is not a fad, we are here to empower our community.
PRICE/TUITION: Our prices are based on how many days a week you would like to train AND how many months you sign up for. We have many price options to fit everyone's budget and commitment level. Programs range from $50-on up. Kick-FIT Bootcamp and Women's Self Defense classes use a Punch Card System (about $8 per class).
