Welcome to the Dojo

Your first time coming to a traditional style martial arts class can be very intimidating. To help make that first visit a little easier, here are some basic guidelines to follow.

The most important thing to remember when you come to class is that we are all there to learn. We have all been at that point where we feel confused and intimidated by everything in class. Give it time, ask lots of questions, and never be afraid to try something new. Everyone in the dojo, from the youngest white belt, all the way up to Hanshi Julio Usera (Sensei Herreman's Instructor) is there to learn as well as teach. In time, the dojo will no longer be an intimidating place of mystery, but instead a welcome sanctuary against the daily stresses of life.
