Frequently Asked Questions

  • 1

    Can I try Class before I sign up?

    Yes! Our No Obligation Trial really is "No Obligation". We want you to be sure that what we offer and what you need are congruent. If so, you are welcome to become a member after your trial is up.

    Do I need to be in shape to enroll for Adult classes?

    No! Although we definitely suggest maintaining an active lifestyle, if you haven't exercised in years, many of our classes will still be accessible. Once you're good at them and getting closer to your goals, you'll be able to increase the intensity and try harder classes. Before you know it, you'll be looking and feeling fantastic.

    How Often Should I Attend Class?

    As much as you'd like! We see the most success with at least 2 classes per week. Because we have membership options with unlimited class attendance, many members are here 3-5 or even 6 days a week. That's not necessary but the more you attend, the better your results!

    Do I have to sign up for a certain period of time?

    That entirely depends on your level of commitment, and how much you're enjoying classes. If you're a not sure yet that our classes are right for you, you're not required to stay for a period of time, but if you're loving it and have a goal of achieving Black Belt, we have programs that will get you there!


What Our Members Have To Say

We think our Programs ROCK! But what about actual Members?

I've watched my son become more focused and confident in classes at BMK. The staff is wonderful, and I want to mention in particular the Drivers and Ms. Youngblood. They are the best! I feel like my son has a place to belong. I'm truly grateful for that, and for the growth I've witnessed from belt to belt.

Donna Young

I would highly recommend this facility. From Anita at the front desk to the instructors they are all professionals who really have every childs best interest at heart. Thank you Brian Mayes and staff for all that you are doing, we are truly pleased to be a part of your dojo.

Kat Foy-Rea

Brian Mayes Karate welcomed me in with HUGE and supportive open arms to begin my first training in Karate. I was sad to leave when I moved from Harrisonburg, but the thirst for Karate stayed with me. Now I live in Brooklyn, NY and help teach kids Karate at a studio in Cobble Hill. I still remember almost everything I was taught more than 10 years ago by Brian Mayes!:)
