A group-class environment is not beneficial to everyone when it comes to learning martial arts.  Some students excel much more quickly than other students while others may have difficulty keeping up with the rest of the class.  Either way, students in these scenarios can benefit from taking private martial arts lessons to learn at their own pace and skill level.

Master S.H. Yu Martial Arts provides private martial arts and self defense lessons for those in River Forest, IL who want to practice martial arts in a private setting.  Our private martial arts lessons are offered for kids and adults who want private, one-on-one training.

The Benefits of Private Martial Arts Lessons

Private-Martial-Arts-Lessons-River-Forest-ILWe typically advise our more advanced and dedicated students to take private lessons so they can learn at an accelerated pace.  There are certain stances and kata that are easier to learn in one-on-one training than in a full class setting.

The following are the main benefits of taking private self defense lessons:

  • The lessons are fully customized based on the training requirements and skill level of the student.
  • One-on-one training helps students learn new stances more easily and quickly correct flaws.
  • Struggling students can overcome their challenges and limitations more effectively.
  • The environment of a private lesson is free of distractions and competition, allowing children and self-conscious adults to concentrate better.
  • The challenge of our private lessons can help students reach their full potential by improving their skills and boosting their confidence in their ability.
