See What Our Chandler Self-Defense Parents are Saying
We have been with Sandoval karate for the last 18 months and returned after about 4 years leave. My son tried karate for about 2 years then tried other interests, but he came back to Sandoval after trying a different studio, Sandoval runs a great studio, his Staff is courteous and has an interest in all the students. They are energetic and driven to get the students to excel. They focus on the basics then drive them to advanced skills. We are so happy to be in the Sandoval family
Sandoval Freestyle Karate is just as the 5 stars states… AS GOOD AS IT GETS! I have 2 children attending the studio, ages 9 and 6, and we have been attending 2x a week for the last 9 months. My children have had to endure a tremendous amount of stressors in their childhoods and I really wanted them to have an outlet, but I never could have imagined all the amazing things this studio has done for my precious boys. Not only are their plenty of instructors…
Wow! I have to say 2011/12 has been very good years for the Sandoval’s. They definitely deserve an upgrade from 4 stars to 5 stars. I’ve watched them grow from the last time I wrote my review, from moving their main school to a new location in Gilbert to opening a brand new 2nd location in Chandler. They have also become very involved in the Arizona tournament circuit, even running their own tournament, allowing students to grow by matching their skills against other schools.
Lessons Our Chandler Self-Defense Students Learn
Who are Self-Defense Lessons Really For?
The answer to the question above is simple: ‘everyone’! Yes, every single person, regardless of age, can benefit from self defense classes. If you want to feel safer on the streets at night and live life confident that you can handle a difficult situation brought about by a thug, self defense classes are for you. Choosing the right class for you is a different matter entirely as not all self defense courses are created equal. Some are run by professionals with decades of experience but there are some charlatans out there eager to take your money and offer nothing but clichéd nonsense in return.
What Should I Get Out of My Self-Defense Lessons?
First of all, you should not require an advanced level of fitness to take part in such a class. Most assaults last little more than 30 seconds, so the goal should be to take the sting out of an attack and escape from the breathless attacker. As such, you don’t need to be involved in sprinting drills or anything of the kind. A good self defense class will gradually incorporate fitness drills into the program, so that practitioners will feel fitter in a couple of months.
How Do Your Self-Defense Classes Work?
Our classes are divided into age groups and by belt level. Students start by first achieving their white belt and progressively work towards becoming an official member of the Sandoval Freestyle Karate Black Belt Team. In order to test for belt advancement, students must learn specific forms, katas, and self-defense moves based on their skill level. Advanced belts must also learn to use weapons, such as the staff, nunchucks, kamas, sais, Eskrima sticks, and sword.
Why Choose Sandoval Freestyle Karate for Sefl-Defense?
Self-defense lessons are typically taught based on ancient forms of martial arts. Most people who are seeking self-defense classes are women, kids, teens, and working professionals, such as law enforcement and security workers. In recent years, women have been learning self-defense to become educated on how to react to an attacker, while many kids who have been victims of bullying are looking to put a stop to the torment and confront their assailant. Many adults want to take self-defense classes for the health benefits, as this form of cardiovascular exercise, is a great way to get your body in shape and keep it that way. Research has also shown that learning self-defense can positively influence at-risk youth, even acting as a form of modality for distraught teens.
