We offer you 12 weeks of training that anyone can take. There is no need for prior knowledge and it is very beneficial for practitioners of all levels.

As you study, train, and learn with Sensei Mattson, you will have the chance to test for different ranks online. We use the classical 10 kyu rank system with white, green, and brown belts for beginners.

You can prepare a place to train at home and take classes alone, with your family or a group of practitioners.
