When are membership payments due & how do I pay?
Personal Training packages are paid in full at the time of purchase. We accept payments in the form of credit/debit cards, cash, apple pay, or google pay.
What clothing and equipment do I need in order to train ?
All training simply requires suitable workout attire.
We have extra gear (gloves, wraps) as well as BJJ Gi's for members to use if/when necessary.
All members are advised to purchase their own training attire and equipment with continued attendance.
Those interested in contact sparring will need an appropriate mouth guard.
Will I be able to train without getting hurt/injured?
This is an impossible question to answer as we do not know what will happen at any given moment in time. What we can say is that we do our best to mitigate the risks of serious injuries during training by using our intelligence and common sense while on the mats. (And hopefully off the mats as well)
What type(s) of martial art do you teach/train? What is the style?
The programs at Darwin Martial Arts are a unique mix of techniques & concepts, inspired by various disciplines from around the world including, but not limited to, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Boxing, Jeet Kune Do, Savate, Wing Chun, Aikido, Capoiera, Kali Eskrima, Silat, Judo, Tai Chi, & Qi Gong.
Do you offer Women’s Self Defense programs?

Do you have programs for Children/Teenagers?
No. Darwin Martial Arts is an extraordinary training facility for adults of all skill levels.
Can I sign up just for Sparring?
No. We do not allow any member to practice live sparring without clearance from an instructor, which requires some time spent training with us in order to learn our rules and sparring etiquette.
