What Did I Want to Know?

Q. What Types of Martial Arts do you teach at Point Blank?

A. We primarily teach Muay Thai and BJJ/Submission Grappling.  However, we also teach several other components including MMA, Combat Submission Wrestling, Kali/Escrima and Boxing under the Principles of Jeet Kune Do

Q. Is contact Martial Arts safe for Kids?

A. If you have kids, you know they get hurt doing everything!  However, with the right Martial Arts Instruction, kids are taught contact in a controlled environment and injuries are exceptionally rare.  In fact, Martial Arts holds the lowest rating of injuries compared to Hockey, Soccer, Baseball, Basketball and a host of other sports, while providing a lifetime journey of learning.

Q. I'm not in the best shape and I want to make sure I am not holding up class and being embarrassed.  Is that possible?

A. 100% Possible!  Every human being learns at their own pace.  It is a disservice to yourself to compare to others.  Use them for inspiration of what is possible, see what can be done, and take one step at a time to achieve your goals.  Everyone here at Point Blank is committed to having a great environment, great attitude and leaving with a positive experience.  

Waiting until you're in shape to start training Martial Arts is like a child not going to school until they are smart enough.

Q. I Want to Get a Black Belt, how long will that take?

A. At Point Blank Martial Arts, we offer Belt programs for kids up to the age of 16.  In 13 years we have had only 2 students make it to the Junior Black Belt level.  We are NOT a Black Belt Factory.  Everything is earned, nothing is given.  There are no Kata's to memorize.  

For adults, we provide a grading program (for those that want to opt into it), where we provide ranks for the following categories/ranges:  Stand Up; Clinch, Ground, MMA, JKD and Weapons.

Q. What is your Class Structure?

A..  Each class will contain both physical and technical elements, as well as general fitness and muscle endurance elements (Follow this link for more information on Fitness).

  • You will learn what techniques work for you and develop a skill set with respect to stance, punching, kicking, closing the gap, controlling the clinch, executing takedowns, ground control, transition, position and submission

  • We spar/roll at least every other class, although we try to make it every class, technique, drills, time and questions permitting

  • The reason for this is:

  • You can learn to hit pads all day long, but pads don't hit back

  • You need to know for yourself if what you learned is something you can apply

  • You also need to know if it works for you.

  • Never worry, you will not be sparring with any meatheads or people who do not respect your level of experience.

  • You will be challenged, but never overwhelmed.
