Before you decide on a school, go visit them and have a conversation with the instructor.

Ask questions and does the instructor make you feel comfortable?

Here is what a  student who already holds several black belts said:

A great place to work out and learn a true martial art. Master Ron is patient and an excellent instructor who knows his curriculum. I could not give a higher recommendation and I have been training since a teenager myself. Come learn , come and enjoy.
