General Questions

Come in! You can watch or take a free class! Or if you prefer, call or email us. YOU have to take the first step
This is a highly individual choice. The answer depends on what you enjoy and what your training goals are. If you are unfamiliar with the arts, you are going to have to explore the classes. The important thing is you enjoy the process. You can study one discipline or cross train the curriculum's.
The pace can be brisk, and the workouts can be strenuous, but you are always encouraged to set your own limits. Our classes include all skill levels and are mainly partner based. But never worry about slowing someone else down, training with mixed skill levels is an important part of learning for everyone.
Not very. We start and end each class with the appropriate bow. Beyond that, it is pretty relaxed. We ask respect for oneself, your training partner, and the instructor.
Absolutely not! Our program will help you to improve your physical fitness and health at your own pace.
Then you have no bad habits to break! You may feel lost in the beginning, but that’s part of the learning process. Every person learns at their own rate and in their own way.
Yes, the Dayton Kali Academy is under the Instructor Program of the Inosanto Academy of Martial Arts headed by Guro Dan Inosanto (Bruce Lee’s protégé and famed martial artist.)
Enjoy yourself while training! If you like the students and the instructors, if you have fun training, if you feel confident that you are learning and if you feel comfortable in class, you will want to train regularly. And that’s the key to success. No art can compensate for a lack of motivation. No art can protect you or keep you healthy if you are not training regularly!
