How to Choose a Martial Arts School : Different Styles of Martial Arts Schools


Hi, I’m Mike Payne, owner of the Martial Arts
Academy, speaking on behalf of Expert Village. I will discuss the topic of what to look for
in a good martial arts school. As far as I’m concerned, every martial arts school has its
strengths and its weaknesses. As far as a particular style goes, what we’ve tried to
do at our school is to incorporate some of the best of each martial arts style. We use
a little bit of Taekwondo, Judo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. This way, we have a well rounded
curriculum which prepares our students for almost any type of self-defense situation.
I think that it is important to use safety gear, where the kids can really experience
what the different techniques actually feel like. They should really learn how to block
and defend themselves, without fear of getting hurt. A lot of schools will offer weapons, such as
these padded nunchucks. If you hit yourself with these, you won’t get hurt.

  1. ermmmm…. they actually kinda did xD
    for example he explained that his school was based off of the thought that he should use a well rounded curiculum, and actually cared about the children's and other students saftey 😀
    so basically, you want to find a nice school that teaches you a lot while at the same time will not slaughter your family lol

  2. I think-like he said-that you shouldn't stick to one style, it's all martial art, a system, self defense. Take what works instinctively and by reaction. Wing Chun in my opinion has been the most "reactive" art-because it has a concept that can be grasped.

  3. @dannyhutchins003run The other video by John Graden was way better. He didn't do any commercial unlike this guy. If you want to take a look it's called "Martial Arts Tips : How to Choose a Good Martial Arts School" (also by expert village)

  4. @helmet122 Definately-Steven Seagal is incredible at Aikido, Ip Man was incredible at Wing Chun. IN MY OPINION(as in from experience, from what I'VE seen) Wing Chun has been what I prefer.

  5. @helmet122 Unfortunately, MA lessons are very very costly…I heard some people charge 200$ per lesson xO which is nuts…A lot of teachers drag out their lessons(teach barely anything per lesson) to teach less for more money…

  6. @helmet122 Well it's good to be able to protect yourself and others tho…just read some books, find some friends to use as dummies lol
