The best martial arts school will help you learn about yourself as you’re learning the martial arts techniques.

This starts with the people- the faculty and staff, because they’re leading the company culture and you’ll be working with them every day. Make sure you find out about them. Ask yourself:. Are the instructors friendly? Are they knowledgeable? Do they push their students to be their best AND have fun? This is what really shapes your experience at a school, so these questions are important.

Our Active Jiu Jitsu staff here in Spring Branch & Westchase is one big happy family – it’s why our students love our school!)

How do I choose the right martial arts school for my personal goals?

Next up- take a step back and think about your personal goals. There are dozens of benefits to practicing martial arts, so it’s important for you to decide which key factors will determine the best school for you. Do you want to feel supported by your peers and instructors? Or are you more concerned with a new physique? Is it about being able to protect yourself and the people you love? Or do you eventually want to compete at a higher level? These are some more important questions when determining the best martial arts school in Spring Branch & Westchase.

Use old-school, good old pen and paper to make a list of your top three priorities. Then, make sure the martial arts schools you’re looking at check those boxes. Once you have your goals in place, you can find martial artists who will help you get there (and a great community to back you up.

Tying it back to the first point, make sure that the school has the best instructors for your goals. If they’re fun and friendly, you’ll fit right into the family. If they push you to be your best, you’ll get super fit. And if they’re very knowledgeable, you can know with confidence you’ll be able to defend yourself in no time. (Our Spring Branch & Westchase Active Jiu Jitsu instructors are all three- just saying!)

What to look for once you’ve called a school

First things first after finding a school that matches your priorities- sign up for their trial classes. It’s likely the instructor you talk to will already suggest a trial Adult Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, which is the best way to learn martial arts risk-free. Pay attention to how easy the process is to sign up for the trial, too.

How willing a school is to work with you and make it easy for you to join your martial arts classes can show you how the instruction will go once you become a student.

So you’ve signed up for the trial. Now here’s the important part- SHOW UP! Choosing the best martial arts school happens in the school, on the mat, when you’re actually learning martial arts instead of researching it on the web. And stick with it, too.

Make sure you attend classes for the full trial offer so you can get to know the staff, students, and the school’s vibe.

These are all pieces that line up with those personal goals you set for yourself to help you determine the best school for you.

Why a good martial arts school must have professional staff

P3, Active Jiu Jitsu Westchase TX

One last thing worth repeating- the best martial arts schools have incredible staff members.

The quality of instruction is going to take a school from best in class to best for YOU and your goals. Once you find a professional, knowledgeable instructor who really believes in your growth and pushes you to be your best, you’ll fall in love with martial arts just like all of us here have.

All it takes is one person to show you how life-changing this sport can be… So make sure that your instructors have faith in you AND walk the walk of a real martial artist.
