  • What is the atmosphere like? Is it positive and encouraging?
  • How does the class schedule work? Is it flexible?
  • Where is the school located? Is there a convenient location nearby?
  • Other factors? Are there special events or other benefits to consider?

By answering these questions, you will be better able to choose the best martial arts school for you and your family.
