New Student Information
Most inquiries either ask how to register/try a class, or what the fees are. If your question is not answered below, please call Ray Copeland at 630-951-0111.
AGE: Potential students should be at least 5 years old depending on their maturity. If younger than 8, parents should stay and watch the child train, just in case they get tired or need other assistance.
To register or try a free class, simply come by the school at any of the class times and speak to an instructor. Wear comfortable clothes and you can try it out! Classes with an emphasis on younger or beginning students are held Tuesday and Friday evenings.
It is suggested that you try different classes to see what works best for you. Students should try to train 2 or 3 times each week.
Other guidelines are listed in the Training Guidelines document included in the "New Students" folder under the Documents tab.
We are located in the small shopping strip at the SW corner of Geneva Rd and Pleasant Hill Rd in Wheaton, IL. Class times are listed under the "Classes" tab.

Safety comes first. All sparring is non-contact attacks. Contact is employed for pads, self defense techniques, and board breaking.
