In Kick-Fit, ladies strap on a set of gloves and develop their Muay Thai kickboxing skills by striking away at a heavy bag. They’ll practice practical punching, kicking, and kneeing techniques. In self-defense classes, women find answers to questions such as “What do I do if I get attacked while jogging?” and “Can I break an assailant’s nose without spilling my coffee?” The no-belt class sets aside showmanship for real-world street defense tactics in a relaxing environment with plenty of one-on-one attention. The team at McKenzie Martial Arts also offers classes and programs for all ages and genders, including Gracie jujitsu, jeet kune do, and Little Champs session for kids aged 4 through 7.

McKenzie Martial Arts
Nowadays, the term “martial arts” conjures up images of flashy Hollywood kicks, championship trophies, and prismatic collections of ranked belts. Many often forget, however, that the martial arts are tools for self-defense. The instructors at McKenzie Martial Arts eschew the glamour and instead focus on teaching students how to protect themselves, encouraging participation from the entire family. They lead kids, teens, and adults through a range of disciplines, including Bruce Lee’s street-level jeet kune do, Gracie jujitsu, and weapon-centric Filipino kali and escrima. During each lesson, they’ll equip students with gloves and padded weapons and let them put their newfound skills to use in a ring or mat-covered training room. Family members, meanwhile, can watch their kin square off by meditating to the point of omnipresence or simply nabbing a spot in the comfortable viewing area.
