How much does it cost to join?
We highly recommend coming in for our free one week trial before making any decision. With regards to pricing we do have a lot of options available so it would be best to speak with Master Han in person so the best plan can be reached for your needs.
How do the belt rankings work?
Our belt ranks are broken into two categories: color and black belts. The color belts are broken into ranks called Keups. Color belts begin at White belt (10th Keup) and end at Jr. Black is (1st Keup). Black belts are called Dans. So a first degree black belt is called a first Dan.
What will my belt ranking be if I have had previous martial arts training?
Master Han will evaluate your current skill level to determine where you rank in our school.
What equipment is needed?
Beginners will be supplied their uniform and belt upon joining. Once students reach their Orange Belt (8th Keup) they will need to purchase sparring gear in order to participate in sparring classes.
