Is your facility clean?
We offer a germ-free facility and adhere to strict standards of cleanliness and hygiene. Our staff clean and disinfect the academy before and after every class. Our mats are also disinfected multiple times a day to kill any viruses, fungus, or bacteria. Cleanliness is a top priority.
Are classes safe?
Keeping our students safe is our primary goal. All training sessions are supervised at all times. We use a training system that incrementally increases the difficulty of techniques as well as the level of intensity. Students are required to demonstrate self-control and have an understanding of fundamentals before they are able to spar (when both people are actually trying to attack and defend the techniques). Even when beginning to spar, we start with specific situational drills to help students learn the proper attacks and defenses in those situations. This system helps prevent accidental injuries that can occur when students prematurely begin intense training without proper preparation and guidance.
While sparring, students learn quickly that safety, having respect for, and taking care of their teammates is essential. We do not tolerate malicious or reckless training that could result in injuries. Live training is designed to teach and challenge students while having fun. With our structured curriculum and goal oriented ranking system, our program is far safer than football, soccer, gymnastics, or cheerleading.
Do women train here?
ATT East Orlando is a safe place for women to feel comfortable learning potentially lifesaving techniques. We teach women the most important techniques to prevent sexual assault and stay safe in multiple scenarios. We’ve created an atmosphere for women to be empowered to train and work towards their personal goals. The fact that Jiu-Jitsu does not rely on strength and size but rather on technique and leverage makes it a viable self-defense system for women. The effectiveness of these techniques in real world situations provides true confidence for women knowing they could protect themselves should they ever need to.
How can goal setting help me?
Learning how to effectively set and achieve goals can be the answer to finding true happiness in your life. Regardless of whether you want to lose weight, get in better shape, learn to defend yourself, improve confidence or self-discipline, be mentally or physically stronger, or compete. Writing out your goals and creating a plan to achieve them is one of the most rewarding things in the world. Our goal setting system helps you identify what means most to you. Then we help you create a step-by-step plan to keep you accountable while working towards that goal. Life is hard; having a plan to get what you want from life can be the difference between years of frustration and finding your version of success.
How do you keep kids engaged in learning?
We make learning fun! Learning martial arts is challenging, as most things worth doing are. The best way to keep kids engaged and wanting to come back is to make the classes fun and encouraging. We use specially designed games and fun drills to teach the fundamental movements of Jiu-Jitsu and Kickboxing. The kids don’t realize how much they are learning because the drills are presented as “games” for their enjoyment.
As instructors we want your child to have a positive experience inside our academy. We ask parents to give their kids a high five, a big hug, and tell them how proud you are of them during and after class. Kids are very smart and they will associate martial arts with good, positive emotions. It takes time and patience for the invaluable lessons of Jiu-Jitsu to set in.
Will training here make my child aggressive?
Absolutely not! Martial arts is focused on self-defense, not self-offense. They learn to respect the skills they develop while training at our school. We teach our students to act with confidence, use self-control, and self-discipline in order to maintain the courtesy and integrity of our art.
How much does it cost?
Our primary focus is to teach life skills. We have a structure of respect, courtesy, and discipline built into martial arts. The classes combine the fun and excitement of martial arts training with weekly mental and thought provoking lessons designed to strengthen our students both mentally and physically. We have several different programs to offer. American Top Team East Orlando offers a free trial class.
