LOCATION POLICIES & PRICING
"it’s not a building that makes a good school, but the curriculum and people inside."
Inner Strength Martial Arts is a full martial arts school simply without a private business owned building. Students who have trained at ISMA for years understand this, but some come to ISMA with the intent to stay for a “trial” period and then transfer to another school simply with the notion that a martial arts school must operate out of it’s own building to be good. Many of you have heard the saying “never judge a book by its cover”. In comparison, long time ISMA students and those who have come to ISMA from these other schools will tell you, it’s not a building that makes a good school, but the curriculum and people inside.
Some day we may be forced to have our own building, simply because we’ve outgrown our current locations, but until then we hope you look at ISMA as a full martial arts school who uses a room in another’s building and not just a class held at a recreation center.
ISMA has been operating out of Carpenter Park since August 1997 and Joe Farmer since May 2001. Our policy is to try to support a student's continuous training, but it is crucial that students follow registration procedure as directed by each location. Most of our Carpenter Park classes fill within minutes after registration is open and some of our Joe Farmer classes meet maximum student participation too. Registration early for all ISMA classes is recommended.
What are the differences between locations?
Please contact me before addressing any issues with the recreation centers in reference to ISMA classes. I have had a good working partnership with Plano for over a decade and our friendship in Allen is growing. In some cases these partners allow us to work beyond what the City guidelines are for classes, registration, and enrollment. Please be courteous and friendly when speaking with Carpenter Park or Joe Farmer Rec Center staff members and if you have any issues with them regarding ISMA, please allow me the opportunity to address these issues first.
