Frequently Asked Questions


Do you use a belt system?

Yes, at Raptor Martial Arts students will train with the goal of advancing their belt rank.  There are 10 colored belt rank levels students must work toward in order to achieve their black belt.  All student will begin in their first class as a white belt.  Advancing to the next belt level is reached based on a test given by the instructor when the amount of time spent training has been reached.  If the instructor believes the student is ready earlier, the offer will be presented to the student by the instructor.

Do I need to wear a uniform?

We recommended that regular students train with the proper attire (AKA Dobok or Dogi) in order to participate in our martial arts program.  When you first arrive to try us our be sure to wear comfortable clothes that allow you to move, kick and punch. A belt will be provided once you sign up beyond the free trial.

*Uniforms are available for students that would like to purchase one*

Do I need to have previous knowledge in self defense?

No, you do not need to have a background in martial arts or self defense in order to participate in our classes. 

We will train students at any skill level.  However, if you do have previous experience in another martial art, we

would require that you start at the basic white belt level and progress, possibly faster, based on your skill level.

Can I bring a a water bottle?

We highly encourage bringing your own water bottle to class.  We typically have a water break halfway through class.

Is there a bathroom?

We do not have a bathroom directly in the new studio, but there is access to a bathroom  across from the studio.
