Ann Arbor College of Martial Arts & Fitness?s hand-selected, certified instructors incorporate techniques from four disciplines to help students defend themselves in simulations of assaults.
When they aren?t teaching self-defense, instructors help students strengthen their bodies with Pilates and a kickboxing program that combines floor exercises and punching-bag work. In an aerobic interval program, teachers alternate stints of kickboxing, Pilates, and strength and toning techniques in small intervals to maintain cardio levels and help burn calories. Pupils can also burn calories with Zumba, which uses moves from Latin and hip-hop dance in a "fitness party" atmosphere that encourages a full-body workout.

Learn an effective way to defend yourself against random attackers and projectile fruit through traditional Shotokan karate, a form of focused limb flailery introduced to Japan by the modern father of karate, Gichin Funakoshi. Sensei Intgroen guides students through the way of Shotokan Sunday–Thursday, and aims to calibrate out-of-sync cardiovascular chronometers in cardio and conditioning classes Monday–Wednesday. During two private lessons, you’ll get individualized attention as you master the precision and focus of martial artistry, giving you the dexterity to move gracefully and swiftly catch flies from a sensei’s hand using a lasso fashioned from dental floss.
