Frequently Asked Questions
How old does my child need to be to start?
We are excited to welcome your child after their third birthday!
Are the preschool classes different than the elementary-age classes?
Yes! These two programs are very different when it comes to curriculum. The two age groups also earn different color belts. Our younger students focus on balance, coordination, large motor skills, sharing, self-control, teamwork, jumping, basic footwork, blocking, fun games, and more. Our older group works on fine motor skills, core strength, flexibility, agility, timing, confidence, goal setting, patience, grit, and more.
Do parents stay and watch the class?
Our preschool (3-5yr) parents are required to stay on-site during class. This age group may need extra support during class so it’s important parents are close by. For our older group (6-10yrs), parents are welcome to drop off or wait in their car during class, however, please be sure to stay within 5 miles of the class location in case you are needed. Parents are welcome to bring a picnic blanket or lawn chair to watch the class! Siblings are welcome to play during class.
Does my child need to wear a uniform?
Yes, uniforms are required at Park Dojo. Students can choose to wear either the Park Dojo t-shirt with black shorts or pants OR the Park Dojo dobok. Both uniforms are worn with your child’s rank belt. Please make sure your child has their uniform and belt each class since we award stripes often and it teaches the student responsibility as well. You can find the Park Dojo under the “shop” tab.
Do you offer financial assistance?
Please contact us if you need financial assistance or to break your session tuition up into 2-3 payments. We are here to help and never want to turn a student away due to non-payment.
What do I need to bring to class?
Warriors bring your best attitude and are prepared to learn and have fun! Please be sure to bring a water bottle to stay hydrated. We take water breaks throughout class. Parents are encouraged to bring a picnic blanket and snacks/drinks to enjoy while viewing class.
How does belt promotion work?
When your child shows that they have achieved the curriculum milestones for their current belt, they will receive an invitation for promotion to their new belt. This is an exciting time for the student and a very tangible method for the young student to see their progress. The cost of the belt is $20 and includes their new Belt, Board, and Certificate of Promotion.
Do you offer make-up classes?
We offer make-up classes for those who have missed 4 classes per calendar year due to weather circumstances. Luckily, some months have a 5th day of a certain day of the week – we offer those days as make-up or freebie classes!
How do I cancel my membership?
We will be sad to see you go but hope that you will share with us some feedback on how we are doing before you leave. Our commitment-free policy allows for cancellation anytime. Please email Hello@parkdojo.com or hit the contact us link to submit your cancellation request. Please submit this request at least 5 business days prior to your auto-draft date.
How do I freeze my membership?
We understand things come up and we are flexible and ready to accommodate. Freeze your membership anytime. You can freeze your membership for a month – up to 2x per year. Please email Hello@parkdojo.com or hit the contact us link to submit your freeze request. Please submit this request at least 5 business days prior to your auto-draft date.
Do you offer private events?
Yes! This is a new addition to our current services! We are excited to announce that Master Alyssa will be offering private Birthday Party lessons. This option is only for a student who is currently enrolled (friends of the birthday kid do not need to be). Please refer to the About Us section for more information.
How do I start a private neighborhood class?
We are so grateful for your support! At this time, we are limited to offering new neighborhood classes; however, as we expand and hire more trained instructors – we would love to chat! We require at least 7 students to be enrolled, an open space that kids can train at, and a parent who would be willing to be our neighborhood coordinator of that group. Please email Alyssa at Hello@parkdojo.com to inquire.
