I have participated in martial arts at another location; will I be able to keep my belt level? How will I find the best class for my skill level?

If you have recently earned a belt in another martial art style, you will be able to keep your belt but will still need to learn our system from the beginning. In most cases the student will be eligible to test for an equivalent belt or the next ranking belt within six months or less. We have a variety of class times and levels; please contact John Bannon to find the class that best suits you!
