Choose Between Two Options
- $29 for one month of unlimited martial-arts classes for adults (a $120 value)
- $19 for one month of unlimited martial-arts classes for kids' aged 5–14 (an $80 value)
Both kids' and adult classes begin with a warm-up, stretches, and calisthenics, but from there they differ significantly. Kids’ 30-minute classes meet twice per week, with one session focusing on karate fundamentals and kickboxing, and the other focusing on take-down fundamentals such as rolls, how to fall properly, judo throws, and ground submissions.
Adult 60-minute classes meet three times a week, with the first session covering karate self-defense strikes and joint locks. The second class works on boxing and kickboxing drills, and the third class works on take-downs and grappling.
Budokai Fitness & Self-Defense
The practice dummy at Budokai Fitness & Self-Defense has a scowl on his face. Maybe he was molded that way to look menacing, or maybe it’s because he’s being subjected to a barrage of students’ punches and kicks during Budokai’s adult and kids’ martial-arts classes and personal-training sessions. Helmed by Sensei Fritz Michel, Jr., the classes take an MMA approach and combine effective techniques from disciplines such as karate, judo, and other martial-arts styles. Sessions cover techniques such as striking, take-downs, throws, and submissions, and also incorporate stretches and calisthenics during warm-ups.
