What if I have an injury?


If you're injured temporarily (such as a sprained ankle, knee surgery, etc.) it is generally a good idea to postpone your class.

If you have a long-standing injury or issues, like a "bad knee", back pain, or an old athletic injury, we can teach you how to fight in ways that protect those areas. During the course, we use a strip of tape on top of the student’s clothing to visually indicate the injured area(s). The instructors also review injuries before each practice fight and whether the student is "using" or "not using" the techniques that involve those areas. You will learn strategies to protect yourself despite having a long-term injury.
