Today there are many instructors and schools(Dojos). Choosing a
quality school may be a hard decision for the beginning student.
Check the background and track record of both the school and the
instructor. This is the most crucial step in reaching your full
potential as a true Martial Artist. The Martial Arts is an art --you
can not, and should not, do it half way. There are big differences
in dojos and senseis (instructors).
It's up to you to make the right decision.

When observing an advanced student attack full force, you may get
the impression that the Martial Arts is just for athletes. However
students form all ages will learn that they can grow to a high level
of mental and physical proficiency because the Martial Arts is "private
competition" -- one competes against himself in striving for
the next level of development. Even the most advanced student felt
the same way as the first time observer. The difference is the willingness
to start, work hard, meet the standards, and in time you will grow
to levels beyond your belief. Everyone has the potential to be the
best they can be if you are willing to work. Martial Arts teaches
the lessons of life -- nothing worthwhile comes easy.
