What Do I Need to Start Training at Heroes?


Q: What do you need to get started?

A: good attitude and a willingness to work hard is a great start.

DISCLAIMER: If you have health concerns, it is always best to consult with a doctor or medical professional before beginning any exercise program.


Q: Do you need to be in shape to start?

A: The program at Heroes Martial Arts are designed to keep you in shape, give you motivation to stay in shape, and give you tools to maintain your shape, even when you’re not training.

As long as you’re healthy and ready to begin an exercise program, we can work with you. The skill level and difficulty ramps up quickly, but we will get you prepared for it. Warm up exercises before each class emphasize core strength, flexibility, endurance and students can easily do these exercises on their own even when not at the gym.

Because nothing is quite so challenging, and exhilarating as working with (and against) another human being in a physical chess match, no type of fitness level meets the demands of grappling quite like grappling does, and the competitive aspect will give you plenty of motivation to want to improve your shape.

Heroes Martial Arts is Committed to Providing a Safe and Inclusive Environment

Inclusivity and Diversity: Heroes Martial Arts strives to foster a climate of purposeful inclusion of all people. We value the diversity of racial and cultural identity and background, nationality, sexual and affectional orientation, gender identity and its expression, religious background and belief, marital status, family structure, age, mental and physical health and ability, political perspective, and educational and class status.
