Responses to Regular Inquiries
I have never done martial arts before, can I still join?
Of course, in fact a lot of our members join us without having done martial arts before. Our AEGIS Martial Arts programs are designed to introduce and develop a students skill & knowledge of the AEGIS System regardless of any martial arts experience.
Is [insert age here] a good age to start?
Martial arts can benefit anyone of any age. We have students as young as 3 years old going all the way up to 60+! No matter your age, starting in martial arts can help improve your life.
How often do you need to attend class?
We encourage all students to attend class once or twice a week so they can get the most out of their martial arts progam. All our Academies have timetables to suit most families schedules and they are flexible on which days you train. When you join an Academy, your Instructors will go through the timetable and find a way for you to attend classes regularly in a way that suits you.
Are you open during school holidays and half terms?
Yes we are! The only time we officially close is over the Christmas/New Year period and Bank Holidays.
I have a pre-existing injury, can I still take part in the classes?
With any injury, we will always advise consulting a doctor before taking on any form of physical exercise. It is also important to make us aware o any injuries as soon as you come along for your free first lesson. If they give the go ahead, we can work with you to make sure the training you are doing is not aggregating the injury further.
