5. What kind of students participate?
Who belongs to a martial arts dojo is an important issue when deciding which dojo to train in. The current student level and growth can tell us a lot about a martial arts school. Follow in their footsteps if you decide to enroll in that particular school. Find a dojo that keeps students engaged and focused.
6. What facilities do they train at?
Martial arts training has a reputation for being built on hard work and grit, but a good program also needs a clean and safe environment to train in. It should be well organized and well maintained. Part of the training is discipline, which should be demonstrated at the facility. Schools need training mats, safety equipment, first aid supplies, and a place for people to observe training. The last one is especially important if you have kids in martial arts training. Parents should be able to see their children practicing.
