Information We Collect.

We gather certain personal data when you interact with our martial arts website. This information might include your name, email address, and other relevant details that you choose to provide voluntarily through our registration forms, contact forms, or any other means of communication. We may also collect non-personal information such as your browser type, device information, and IP address for the purpose of improving our website’s functionality and enhancing your browsing experience.


When you leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also your IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

How We Use Your Information.

The information you share with us serves various purposes. It enables effective communication, provides updates about our martial arts programs, and allows us to address any inquiries you might have. Additionally, non-personal information aids in analyzing website traffic, tracking trends, and optimizing content to cater to your preferences. Rest assured, we handle your data with care and respect your privacy.

Data Security.

We prioritize the security of your information. Appropriate technical and organizational measures are implemented to safeguard against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction. While we prioritize protection, it’s important to note that no online method is entirely secure. Exercise caution when sharing information online to further enhance your safety.

Third-Party Sharing.

We highly value your privacy and do not share, trade, or transfer your information to third parties without your explicit consent. However, we may collaborate with trusted service providers who assist us in website operations and service delivery. Rest assured, we ensure that these third parties uphold the same level of data protection as we do.

You retain control over the personal information you provide. Access, correction, or deletion of your data is available by contacting us using the provided details. If you no longer wish to receive updates from us, you can choose to unsubscribe from our communications.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.


Our website may utilize cookies to enhance your browsing experience. These cookies collect non-personal data to analyze website usage patterns and provide you with tailored content. You can adjust your browser settings to control cookie preferences, but note that some features of our website might be impacted.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Embedded content from other websites.

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data?
