  1. Yes we do Aliisa. Private lessons are booked at times that are mutually agreed upon so that it works for both of us.Certainly there are some advantages to getting some private lessons, and there are also certain advantages to a group setting as well. Group classtimes are listed on the schedule here on the site and also on our Facebook page. To discuss all the options and to obtain rates simply give us a call at 519 371 0991 anytime.

  2. Seek self defense classes. I am a young 50. How much is the start up cost and how many classes per week.
    Thank you for your assistance

    • Hi -Your first 2 classes are free then you can chose from 1,3,6, and 12 month memberships. The introductory(discounted) price for the first month is $50 plus hst and includes all the classes you see listed on the schedule here on the website(under schedule). There are kung fu, kickboxing and grappling classes, and you may attend all of them. For the week of Aug 11th I am away on a one week holiday but after that please come in and see us!

  3. Is any sword work done here? Or anyplace where you would be able to learn how to use a sword and the basic stances, techniques etc?

    • Yes we teach 2 Chinese broadsword sets. One is a Dragon sword form from our Chong family system. The other is a Wushu set. Weapons of course are only taught to intermediates not novices. What is your experience level?

  6. I am interested in joining your classes but was just wondering if your kickboxing is just classes only or if there is a possibility for assistance in joining ameture tournaments and stuff through your gym. After sufficient training of course.

    Thank you.

  7. Hi, I was just wondering how old children have to be to start classes? I have a three year old son who I think would like kickboxing as well as king-fu but as I said I don’t know what your ages start at.


    • HI Angel- It depends on which type of classes you are interested in. Please have a look at the schedule on this site and then let me know what age group you are etc.There are also private lessons for some types of classes.There are 1 month,3 month, 6 month and yearly memberships to choose from. Thanks.

  8. Hello, I have a dgtr age 8. I seen here that you can start anytime and get two free intro classes to try, correct? She already has dance Tues, Wed, Thurs nights. I was a bit confused about the schedule….Do you have any nights for her age group that may work for her (Mon, Fri, Sat) ? And 3 month cost range? Thanks

    • Hello- Currently beginners attend Tuesday and Thursday classes at 6 pm. Monday and Wednesday classes are available at around the 6-8 week point once they achieve the level of white sash.The 3 month membership includes all these classes and we have an introductory special price of $160 plus hst. And yes she may try two free classes anytime.

  9. Just wondering if private classes offering sparring for young men. And if there are opportunities to participate in tournaments. Thank you for your assistance.

    • Instructors don’t spar with students in private lessons since it is non productive. You would better progress by sparring with different sparring partners of similar size, age and rank in a class situation.You also didn’t specify if you meant traditional martial arts such as kung fu ,or kickboxing or grappling.We also would need to know what level of experience you have. Beginners don’t spar until the instructor thinks they are ready. Competition is available in all these disciplines once you are ready. Private lessons are reserved for technical instruction only and not for sparring.

  10. Hi I am a 16 year old boy that is looking for some kickboxing lessons if you would give me an email about the details that’d be great thanks

    • Hi Aidan- Just have a look at our schedule on this site and then come in for a free trial class. All you need is a water bottle and workout attire. Upon enrollment you will need some gloves and wraps which can be purchased at the club. Thats all there is too it.Or if you would like give us a call at 519 371 0991.

  11. a friend and I are looking to take a few general self defense classes. I was wondering if we could book a few private lessons for the two of us.

  12. Hello.
    I have a 7,6,4 year old that I would like to join your club.
    I would like the 7 year old in karate and kung fu if possible, the others in karate classes.
    do they attend twice weekly?

    • HI- Our youth program , which is a kung fu program, is for ages 7 to 13 years. We make exceptions for 6 year olds that are close to 7 if they have good focus.Youth have 3 classes per week. Karate(Japanese) has its roots in kung fu(Chinese) and when it comes to basics(beginners) there are strong similarities. As the student progress higher the differences become more notable. Kung fu is more circular. Karate is more linear. But it really comes down to how well whatever style you choose, is taught. We believe our youth classes are second to none.

  13. At what age do you allow kids to start the Jiu Jitsu? I have an almost 7 year old daughter and I think that it would be a great disipline for her.

  14. Hello, I attempted to call your phone number and I cant get an answer or leave a voicemail.
    I have a 13 child that wants to learn Jiu Jitsu and kickboxing, he lives a piece away! can he do this in the same night, how can I get a hold of someone to discuss options, other than by computer?

    • Hello- Im sorry for your difficulty getting hold of us. If you only called since last night then perhaps I forgot to forward my calls to my home last night. Otherwise it should not be a problem getting hold of me by phone. If you still cant get us today then I will correct the problem tonight when I arrive at the club. ( I live out of town)In the mean time , please try again and check the number- 519 371 0991.
      Have you looked at the schedule on this site? As you can see kickboxing is 3 times per week and BJJ is only Tuesday although once you become a member you will be able to take part in the less formal BJJ workouts (with the instructor always taking part)that are also available Wednesdays and on weekends. since these are not formal classes they are not listed on the schedule. Your membership includes all types of classes so taking double classes is not an issue. Thank you for your patience.

  15. I am interested in signing up my 7yr old son to start basic Kung Fu. What would the cost per month be?

    • HI- We offer 1 month,3 month and 6 month trial rates. That includes all classes available. For example 1 month is reduced to $50 plus tx. Please call 510 371 0991 for more info on even better deals on our other memberships.

  16. Hi there,

  19. Hello,

    I am an adult with good fitness but zero experience in martial arts, looking to try kickboxing and possibly Kung Fu, I’ve looked at your schedule but am unsure whether some classes are just for adults and some just for youth? Can you please let me know which days I could attend?

    thank you

    • Hi Natalie- Any class on the schedule not prefixed by “youth” is an adult class. You may attend any class that is an adult class providing you are 13 years old or older . Come in and try a class out first !(no charge)!

  20. Hello, My daughter is interested in trying the kickboxing classes. What should she wear the first night? When is a good date for her to come in to try out a kickboxing class?

    • HI Jennifer- First I should ask you how old she is since there is an age requirement(13 yrs). If she is younger than that then kung fu class for youth are available(see schedule) Any comfortable clothing is fine for kickboxing. She can try out a class anytime except the tuesday sparring class. For more info call us at 519 371 0991. Thanks !
