Experience and Physical Ability: While this is a beginner level course, students will be expected to be in good enough physical shape to both perform the techniques and participate in the drills, but also not hold other students back should they become a physical fitness liability. There will be no student on student “sparring” in the course per se, but students will be participating in “live” drilling scenarios with their partner and sparring scenarios with trained roll players, selected based on student capabilities. During these scenarios students will be expected to mount adequate resistance in order to simulate a real hand-to-hand encounter. It is highly advised that students engage in some level of physical fitness training in the weeks prior to the class in order to condition their bodies and minds in preparation. Students do not have to be in top physical shape, but it is important that they arrive to the course with a baseline level of fitness not only so they may fully engage in the training but also to mitigate and prevent any injuries that they could sustain during training. Instructors will run the course in a slow and methodical manner in order to ensure a safe learning environment. In addition, all students should discuss any previous injuries or limitations prior to beginning training. This in no way means students should not sign up for training if they are older or have physical limitations. Discussing this with the instructors ensures that they have full situational awareness during the course.

You can purchase one at any sporting goods store and probably find them in the sports section of Walmart.
