Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers about our Martial Arts Programs

We find that our students become more confident to stand up to bullies and have more humility and kindness to others through their martial arts lessons.

We do ask that all parents plan to stay with their child for the first lesson.  After that, we encourage parents to watch their children in their kids martial arts lessons, but it’s up to them.  We love parents getting involved!  And so do their kids.  Even better… join into some of our martial arts classes for adults.   Your kids will love that you have something in common.  It will build a strong family bond!

Additionally, if you wanted some ‘me-time’?  Simply drop them off, and go grab a coffee.  They will greet you with a huge smile when you return, because they had SO much fun!

No, not at all!  We find that people start at varying fitness levels. But, you will find that you do get fit by doing our Raleigh martial arts classes. We do offer a program, called transitions, when you start classes, in case you need a bit of extra care in getting into shape or are recovering from an injury. 

Isn’t that the point though? It’s a fun workout that gets results!

Truthfully, the journey to Black Belt is an individual one.  Everyone can progress at a different pace.  There is no judgement on students for how long it does take.  What we can tell you, is that it is SO WORTHWHILE! 

The self defense skills you will master can truly be life-saving!
However, the other benefits of striving for Black Belt, like perseverance, never giving up, commitment and self discipline lead to life-long success.

You will find that your instructors at Karate International Raleigh are dedicated to helping you on your journey to Black Belt or whatever your personal goal may be. We have found that the average student who attends two-three days per week can expect to earn Black Belt in about 4 years. 

We do only have a certain amount of space in our martial arts training area.  To take advantage of our limited time offer…. The fastest way is to fill in the form. 

Additionally, you can always call us, we would love to chat with you about what we do, and if our Raleigh martial arts classes would be a great fit for you and your family!

We make sure you have all that you need, because we provide your uniform for free! We suggest that you have a t-shirt to wear under the uniform.😳

Not at all.  In fact, many students starting in our adult martial arts classes would describe themselves like that before they started.  So you will fit right in!

Give yourself some time, and you will be astounded at how much you improve!  You’ll find that our very experienced martial arts instructors, are trained to keep their teaching simple.  So even the most uncoordinated person will develop ‘ninja-like’ skills!  Come see for yourself!
