How to Choose the Right Martial Arts School?

#1 – Choose a martial arts school that offers the right program for your needs.

Our versatile class schedule and Master Scrima’s extensive background in multiple Chinese martial arts styles insures that you will be able to choose a program that will meet your needs and those of your family, and help you achieve your goals. MMA is the current martial arts rage but unless your goal is fighting in a cage you should consider a more comprehensive program which can provide lasting benefits for you and your family.

#2 – Choose a martial arts school with a reputable instructor.

Since the most important element of learning and progressing in martial arts is the quality of the instruction, a reputable and knowledgeable teacher is a must. With over 40 years of training and more than 30 years of teaching experience, Master Scrima has acquired a unique martial arts background. A distinguishing factor of his skill is the depth and breadth of his knowledge and his ability to apply this to his instruction. He can teach you a variety of martial arts and fitness techniques that can help you improve your body and relax your mind.

#3 – Select a martial arts school that is located within 15-20 minutes’ drive of your home or workplace. A convenient location can make a huge difference in maintaining your long-term training.

The Chinese Martial Arts Center is conveniently located at the intersection of Enterprise and McMullen-Booth Road, providing easy access for the communities of Countryside, Safety Harbor, Oldsmar, Dunedin, and Palm Harbor. The school can also be accessed from Tampa and St. Petersburg.

#4 – Statistically, the failure rate of small businesses within the first two years hovers at 75%. Since martial arts training requires an investment in time as well as a financial commitment, choose a martial arts school that has been in the area for at least 5 years.
