A Parent's Guide to Selecting a Martial Arts School

1. What to look for in a Martial Arts school.
As instructors, even before we opened our own school, we have been asked what people should tell friends or family in
other cities to look for in a martial arts school.

2. The Instruction
The martial arts style is less important than the personality, teaching style and teaching qualifications of the Chief
Instructor(s).
Ask if the Chief Instructors are at the school during all the classes and if they teach most of the classes.
Are the Chief Instructors old enough to have the experience and maturity to handle difficult situations that
might arise.
Watch a few classes to see if the Chief Instructors seem to genuinely like teaching, know the students' names,
use positive reinforcement, and maintain control of the classes while keeping it fun.
The Chief Instructors should be at least 2nd degree black belts. Beyond that, teaching style is more
important than rank. Many 2nd and 3rd degree Chief Instructors have better teaching and communication
skills than instructors who have much higher rank who are considered “masters” of martial arts.
All of the people in charge of teaching classes should be at least a black belt and have been certified to teach
by some national martial arts group. If colored belt students are used, it should be in supporting roles to
keep order.
How important are the Chief Instructor’s competition history and trophies? An instructor’s personal martial
arts accomplishments do not give any indication as to his/her teaching ability. It is more important that the
instructors be able to communicate well with children and adults, be able to demonstrate proper technique,
keep classes fun and interesting, and motivate students through positive teaching methods to develop self-confidence and achieve their goals.
Check to see if the Chief Instructor is affiliated with a national martial arts organization that provides ongoing training and quality control.

3. The Classes
Inquire about the number of classes that you or your child can attend each week. The more options you have,
the better. Anything less than three times a week is too little. Make sure that the class times are flexible so
that if a hectic week forces you to change your schedule you can still attend class.
Ask if parents and spectators are allowed to watch classes. A closed-door policy is a red flag that something is
wrong with the teaching methods in the school. (It is normal, however, for schools to ask parents to not talk
to students during their class because it can distract the student and result in an injury.)
Are classes fun or is it the same thing day after day? While repetition is important, classes should be an
interesting, fun learning experience.
What activities does the school offer besides classes, testings and tournaments to promote a family
atmosphere? Look for activities such as lock-ins, parties, picnics, etc.

4. The School
Assuming you like the instructors and the program, the more convenient the location, the more likely you
will attend classes regularly and get the most out of the program. If you choose a school all the way across
town, even though it may be less expensive, you may attend less because of traffic and the longer drive time.
Does the school look bright and smell clean? How often is it cleaned?

5. The Membership
Any schools you are considering should ask you to try a free class or two before you sign up for any martial
arts program.
One-year memberships are standard in our industry among full-time instructors. Many schools also offer an
introductory special to allow new students to try classes for one or two months for a fee. When you are ready
to sign the one-year memberships contract, it is better to make monthly payments rather than the entire
amount up front, in case the school should close. Also, check to see if they offer a written guarantee that will
let you out of the contract if you change your mind within the first 30 days.
Ask how often the students test and how much testing costs. Specifically ask how much it costs to test for
Black Belt (at some schools this could be hundreds of dollars). Also ask what equipment the students are
required to have, when they are required to have it, and how much it costs.
Make sure that the rates are reasonable, but do not make a decision based solely on price. The cheapest place
may not be the best deal and the most expensive school may not offer the best program.


Consider starting slow and working your way up to a full program.

  El Senshi Okami Martial Arts Center ubicado en el condado de El Bronx en la ciudad de Nueva York, el cuál es dirigido por el "Sensei", palabra japonesa para Profesor o Maestro, Héctor HERNANDEZ, quien ofreció como de costumbre sus instalaciones para realizar esta Clínica. La dominicana García oriunda de la ciudad de La Vega, la cual pertenece a la Zona Norte del país, expuso a los participantes varios de los conceptos básicos de este arte marcial la cual es también deporte olímpico desde su incursión en el programa de los Juegos Olímpicos de Verano de Tokyo del 1964.

   María incluyó y enfatizó en esta magistral clínica, la importancia de un adecuado calentamiento previo a cada sesión, así como el uso de recursos adicionales, tales como juegos para conseguir la adaptación óptima del cuerpo para los ejercicios específicos de judo de la sesión de entrenamientos. Demostró también la forma de realizar las repeticiones de las técnicas de proyección con la metodología adecuada de agarres, desplazamiento y el correcto desbalance del oponente para conseguir derribar al atacante tratando de alcanzar la "máxima eficacia con el mínimo esfuerzo" tal como ideó el fundador del Judo el Profesor Jigoro KANO en uno de sus principios fundamentales. Finalizó la jornada mostrando algunos de los movimientos que le han ayudado a subir al podium junto a las mejores Judokas del mundo en importantes escenarios internacionales como lo son los Juegos Centroamericanos y del Caribe, Juegos Deportivos Panamericanos, Campeonatos Panamericanos de Judo, Copas del Mundo y Campeonatos del Mundo así como a nivel local haber sido Campeona Nacional en unas 14 ocasiones.

 Contamos con la presencia y apoyo en esta actividad de varios dirigentes deportivos del area de Nueva York, entre ellos Wilfredo "Felinchy" SORIANO, Juan GUERRERO, José ORTIZ y Evaristo MADRIGAL así como otros que no pudieron estar presente, pero que mostraron su interés y simpatía en que atletas de alto rendimiento realicen actividades como estas junto a sus respectivas asociaciones, las cuales sirven de ejemplo y motivación a los jóvenes deportistas y público en general. El dirigente deportivo "Felinchy" SORIANO, Director de Deportes en el Exterior para el área de Nueva York del Ministerio de Deportes y Recreación de la República Dominicana, elogió los servicios ofrecidos a la comunidad por el Centro de Artes Marciales Senshi Okami y las diligencias de los dirigentes de la Asociación de Judo. La Asociación de Judo de Nueva York ha venido participando en una serie de reuniones con la Sub-Direccion del MIDEREC en NY y los representantes de las diferentes disciplinas deportivas que accionan en el área, con miras a la realización de los Juegos Patrios Dominicanos en la ciudad de Nueva York del 20-27 de agosto, los cuales servirán para realizar clasificar los atletas que a participar por la Zona del Exterior en los próximos XIV Juegos Nacionales anunciados por el Presidente Danilo MEDINA a celebrarse en mes de Marzo del 2018 en la ciudad norteña de Salcedo y ciudades aledañas. Se movilizaron a la gran urbe de Nueva York, una gran parte de los Judokas residentes en el área, mientras otros lamentaron no poder estar presentes en esta ocasión para poder compartir con María GARCIA ya que ella ha brindado muchas emociones para los amantes de la disciplina de Judo con sus destacados logros en el "Tatami" o tapiz de combate. Dicha actividad contó con el aval de la Federación Dominicana de Judo (FEDOJUDO) y el Comité Gestor Pro Asociación de Judo Dominicana en los Estados Unidos.
