New Student Information
An Open Letter to New Students -
Thank you for your interest in Inner Strength Martial Arts training. As a registered student, I’d like to introduce you to the school and some important information before your first class. Please look over the web site and the new student materials as linked below. If you are under 18 years old, it is extremely important that you share these with your parents too. Log-in information to the Student Area of our web site will be available at class.
All classes of ISMA are conducted as they would be at a free standing martial arts school. ISMA is a complete martial arts school with over 150 students, belt testing, student activities, and a variety of continuing classes offered in Plano and Allen. It is assumed that beginners entering ISMA do so with the intent in studying all aspects of our martial arts styles (age and rank appropriate) with discipline and respect.
Starting quality martial arts training can be a bit overwhelming. Many times beginners feel lost, slow, stiff, sore, and out of balance. These are all normal feelings. As with learning any new skill, it will take patience, drive, effort, and determination to progress. Higher ranked students will attest that the new skills get easier with understanding, persistence, and repetition. When in doubt, feel free to ask for their assistance – ISMA students are always willing to help. When you look at higher ranked students, remember they all started at white belt too. ISMA offers a variety of training from class to class and each student will find skills they pick up quickly and some that take extra effort. These may be different for everyone, so look upon your own accomplishments and try not to judge yourself against others.
The following are 3 items required once you are registered in a class. Please take note of these items accordingly.
You have a lifetime to learn and train in the arts. Have patience, relax, and enjoy the school. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns - please feel free to contact me.
