Safety is our number one priority and that is why we practice Martial Arts. We teach students to stay safe in life by avoiding physical confrontation and to defend themselves if they get attacked.

We teach students to warm up and to listen to instructions properly to avoid any injury, because any physical activity could cause some injury if we are not careful. That includes when you do physical work.

We also encourage students to improve their flexibility to avoid getting injured too easily.
