Frequently Asked Questions

  • 1

    Can I try Class before I sign up?

    Yes! Our No Obligation Trial really is "No Obligation". We want you to be sure that what we offer and what you need are congruent. If so, you are welcome to become a member after your trial is up.

    Do I need to be in shape to enroll for Adult classes?

    No! Although we definitely suggest maintaining an active lifestyle, if you haven't exercised in years, many of our classes will still be accessible. Once you're good at them and getting closer to your goals, you'll be able to increase the intensity and try harder classes. Before you know it, you'll be looking and feeling fantastic.

    How Often Should I Attend Class?

    As much as you'd like! We see the most success with at least 2 classes per week. Because we have membership options with unlimited class attendance, many members are here 3-5 or even 6 days a week. That's not necessary but the more you attend, the better your results!

    Do I have to sign up for a certain period of time?

    That entirely depends on your level of commitment, and how much you're enjoying classes. If you're a not sure yet that our classes are right for you, you're not required to stay for a period of time, but if you're loving it and have a goal of achieving Black Belt, we have programs that will get you there!


What Our Members Have To Say

We think our Programs ROCK! But what about actual Members?

Master Brian and all the instructors at this Academy are amazing. My teen daughter has learned so much. She has such a great feeling of accomplishment and her confidence has increased greatly. The sense of comradery among all students in every level is amazing. The instructors foster a team unity and lead by example. I am extremely happy with what my daughter has and is learning. I am glad she will have this self defense foundation before she goes off to college. The level of professionalism balanced with the sence of family makes this Academy nothing short of stellar.

Patience Nolan

Whether you are seeking martial arts for your child or yourself, its the ONLY dojo I would recommend. Master McCann and his staff are awesome, the class scheduling is great, and I can't think of a single negative thing about McCann's Academy.

Anne Marie Wall

I wholeheartedly recommend Master Brian McCann and The Self Defense Academy. Master McCann teaches each class personally and spends equal time helping beginners and advanced students alike. The school has a friendly/family feel with students who train hard but support each other. Hapkido is truly a well rounded martial art that provides me with all the tools necessary to defend myself in any situation. If you are in Central NJ & are looking for a good school to train in, I encourage you to come in and try the 30 day trial program.
