Why take an introductory course?
Not all martial arts schools are the same, not even close. Different styles, teaching methods, enviroments, goals. The introductory week allows you to try us; and It allows us to give you the attention you deserve. If we are not the right school for you or your child, we will help you find the right fit for you.
Why is there sometimes a waiting period before I can take the intro course?
We only accept up to 3 new students in a program per month - no more. We accept referrals from our members and returning members first, then new enrollments for introductory programs. If a program is full, then there is a waiting list.

No Testing Fees: At Summit Martial Arts you can only get rank by earning it, period! At advance adult ranks there are nominal fees for International certification, but you pass test first (Not pay first)
No Crazy Uniforms: The simple white uniform is about humility, not a billboard. The patches on uniform are a reflection of organization you proudly represent and belong too. Its not about showing off, its about earning respect by your actions, not your clothes.
