I'd like to train at Hand to Hand. When can I start?
A new beginner (white belt) group usually starts at the beginning of each semester. This class is appropriate for those who have never trained in a martial art before or do not have rank in Kajukenbo. Those who have experience in other arts should also start with this class in order to learn the basic techniques and forms of this system. People with significant experience in other martial arts often advance more quickly than those who are new to this type of training, but we believe it is important for all new student to get a solid background in Kajukenbo techniques and philosophy. Your instructor will ask about your previous experience.
When are classes for new beginners?
The next new beginners class starts July 9, 2013. Ongoing beginners classes will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:00 - 8:00pm and Saturdays from 9-11am. The beginners series lasts for four weeks, after which you will join the main class. Additional beginners classes will begin on October 22, 2013.
The introductory class costs $35-150, which includes your monthly dues and a free Hand to Hand T-shirt. Thereafter, dues are $35 - 150/month for unlimited classes. All dues & fees are structured on a sliding scale (students decide for themselves where they fall on the scale). Please contact us for more details or register online here.
How many classes should I attend each week?
It is best to try and attend both the Tuesday and Thursday classes. It is possible to come on only one of these nights, but since this is a time when you will learn lots of new material it is best to attend these classes on a regular schedule or you may miss important information. You should also plan on attending Saturday class from 9-11am in order to review your newest material.
How much does it cost?
We are a membership based organization. For $35 - 150 a month (sliding scale) students may attend as many classes as they are qualified for. The cost is not based on how many classes you attend. There are no contracts; however, all students must pay fully for each month to maintain their membership privileges. This includes times when the student is on vacation or out of town.

Who teaches the new beginners class?
You will have a well qualified Kajukenbo brown or black belt teaching your beginners class. Your main instructor will probably be assisted by one or more higher ranking students who have years of training at Hand to Hand. At times, your class will be taught by the head instructor as we feel it is important to get to know all the students.
