The Arena gets a lot of Frequently Asked Questions, so we wanted to answer the most common ones below. If you don’t see an answer to your specific question, please Contact Us.
Q. Is The Arena just for experienced fighters? Can I come in as a beginner?
A. We are a Martial Arts School, not just a fight gym. So you don’t have to be a fighter to be a member here. In fact, we specialize in training beginners from the ground up, whether they plan on a career in fighting or not. BUT, you do have to train hard while you’re here, and you must be able to keep up in class. We are here to teach you skills, not just get you in shape.
Q. Is it true I can take all the classes you offer for just one flat fee per month?
A. Yes, you are welcome to take all the regular classes we offer for one flat monthly rate.
Q. You offer a Free Day Pass. Who can use it and when can it be used?
A. Anyone can use it, no matter where you are from. Even if you don’t live in San Diego, we want you to come train so you can tell your friends about us. Pass is good any time and you don’t need to reserve a space. Just show up 15 minutes before start of class you want to take.
Q. I’ve had bad experiences with other gyms trying to force me to sign up there. Are you going to pressure me to join your gym if I come by to try it out?
A. No, we’re definitely not into high-pressure sales tactics. In fact, we are a private, members only gym. So we do our best to make sure we are the right fit for you, you are the right fit for us, and we both get a good vibe from one another. If not, no hard feelings.
Q. I don’t own my own equipment or don’t have it with me. Can I use yours?
A. Of course. We have loaner gear you can use, although we do recommend you get your own gear when you can. We also sell all the gear you will need for training at a great price.
