Q: How often can my child come to classes?
A: Once you sign your child up, they are able to come as often as they would like! Although, we typically say that training 2-3 times a week on a consistent schedule (Tues & Thurs, Mon, Wed & Sat) is best because it will keep your child on a regulated schedule that will keep them most focused and motivated.
Q: How is Blue Wave's Karate Kids beneficial to my child?
A: Not only will your child gain self-defense and understanding of martial arts knowledge, but children who typically are involved in martial arts do better in school and have better behavior skills. This holds true because your child will be learning respect and self-motivation on top of having fun in our classes.
Q: I'm not wanting to full commit right off of the bat. What should I do?
A: At Blue Wave, we offer a "trial class" to anyone who hasn't tried our program before. Bring your child in during any of the time slots that we offer Karate Kids beginner classes (CLICK HERE for the Schedule
), and have them try a free class! Make sure they wear comfy clothes that they can move around in!
Q: How does belt ranking work at Blue Wave?
A: In Blue Wave's Tae Kwon Do and Karate Kids program our students have the ability to earn belts and high ranks. Everyone starts out as a 'No Belt' when they first start, and typically after 1 month, or when Master Blevins thinks your child is ready, he will ask your child to test for their white belt, and so on. The ranks we have include: White, Yellow, Green, Purple, Low Brown, High Brown, and Black belts.
Q: How long is the Karate Kids class and can we join at anytime?
A: Our beginners class runs from 4:30-5:15 p.m. Monday-Thursday, and from 10:15 - 11:15 a.m. on Saturday's. We have an open enrollment here at Blue Wave because of how our classes are structured. Since we have a Beginners and Advanced Karate Kids class, any new member is able to join our program at anytime because all of our students in the Karate Kids Beginners class are similar in level and skill rank, so jumping in at anytime isn't overwhelming at all!
Q: Who is the instructor for Karate Kids?
A: Master David Blevins is the head instructor of all of our martial arts programs here at Blue Wave. We do have assistant instructors who help out with the classes in order for everyone to get individual and group training. Click Here to Learn More About Master Blevins and Other Instructors.
