7 Things to Look for When Choosing a Martial Arts School

  1. Facility:  Is it clean and organized?  Does it smell clean?  If it doesn’t look professional, the services probably aren’t either. 
  2. Google reviews:  Make sure to read google reviews of the schools in the area.  If you see repetitive negative reviews of the same issues, chances are you’ll face those, too.  Also look into the Better Business Bureau.  
  3. Instructors and Staff:  Instructors and staff should take an interest in why you joined and will work with you to help  you achieve those goals.  They should be personable, courteous and professional.  Not all instructors are honest about their training backgrounds and experience. Make sure you do your research.  Most instructors will list their training backgrounds on their websites.  It is a good sign if they list their current and past instructors.  If so, google search and look for references.  Anyone can list what they’ve trained in, who they’ve trained under or claim a certain rank, but if you can’t find evidence to support their claims, you might question the instructor’s legitimacy.  If an instructor claims to have won competitions, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding evidence of the fact online.  
  4. Curriculum/Style:  Ask to see the curriculum.  Is it up to date and practical? 
  5. Finances:  Most schools will require a 6 month to 1 year commitment.  Any longer and you have reason to be suspicious. 
  6. Testing:  How many times a year will a student advance to a new belt?  Some schools go every 2-3 month, and some schools will only go once a year.  Chances are the latter will produce better quality students. 
  7. Go with your gut!  Trust your instinct.  If it doesn't feel right, it probably isn't.
