GET IN GREAT SHAPE, KNOCK OUT STRESS, BUILD MUSCLE, BURN FAT, LEARN REAL SELF DEFENSE!!
Many People Enroll In Our School To Learn Self Defense.
Prospective students are looking for the confidence that martial arts provides. Part of that confidence derives from the ability to defend yourself and loved ones.
We have a variety of martial arts classes which will teach you the various aspects of combat and the philosophical elements of becoming a better person. Ultimately, martial arts is more about improving your life then learning technique.
The technical aspect of the classes includes elements from muay thai, boxing, jiujitsu and kickboxing. Elbows and knees are prevalent in muay thai but are also a part of Jeet Kune Do. Bruce Lee studied boxing and fencing when developing his art. We borrow certain elements from jiujitsu when addressing self defense situations on the ground.
Fitness Is An important Component Of The Program.
We promote strength, flexibility and endurance training in every class. Also, the program is tailored to fit each student’s needs and capabilities. We have students who enroll at all skill and fitness levels. Our academy has been in existence for almost 30 years and since that time we have almost seen it all. Students have entered overweight and lost as much as 80 pounds. Students have walked in unsure about themselves and in a few months have become confident individuals.
If You Are Bored Of The Gym You Are in Luck!
Martial arts is a great alternative because the classes are fun and inspiring. Consistency is the key to any fitness program and it is so difficult to stay consistent at the gym. A good proportion of our students got bored with a traditional gym and have been enrolled in our academy for over 6 years. If you are looking to get in great shape make sure to ask about our JKD kickboxing classes. The kickboxing aspect of our martial art teaches real self defense but can also get you stronger, faster and more energized.
