NO!  Enrollment is on a month to month basis.

Your child is not required to wear a uniform to attend class.  However, students will need to wear loose fitting clothing that fits well enough to not be a safety issue.

Your child may begin sparring when he or she becomes an orange belt.

Students have clearly defined, measurable objectives that must be completed for each promotion.  Students must be a member of the MTA Karate Academy to get promoted.  Membership is not required to train.

Students are not required to spar or attend tournaments, but are properly trained to do both if they choose to do so.  Tournament prices vary and students should only attend when their instructor has determined that they are prepared.

No student has ever been injured during training with the MTA Karate Academy, nor has a student ever been injured at a tournament.
