STEP 2: After finishing search job, and choosing some martial arts schools that you are interested in, the next step is to phone the schools and ask some details about their school, for example, whether they are able to receive foreign students and their teaching conditions and so on.
 
STEP 3: Determine your martial arts goals. Are you interested in tournament forms or self-defense? Do you want to become a black belt or to attend classes simply for the exercise? Try to make your learning plan clear, and this will help you narrow your search for various schools.
 
STEP 4: Stop by several training halls to watch classes. Many schools have an observation area, so you can watch during class. Ask permission first.
 
STEP 5: Ask for permission to talk with students and instructors. Find out how students' experiences have been with the school and whether the instructors' styles will support your goals.
 
STEP 6: Assess the quality of teaching. What is your impression of the head instructor? Do instructors expect and show respect and courtesy? What is their experience?
 
STEP 7: Determine the school's emphasis. Does it advocate control or heavy contact? Does it stress tournament competition? How formal or informal are the classes?
 
STEP 8: Ask friends and work associates whether they've heard anything about a martial arts school you're interested in joining.
