Johnny Gurrieri is a sixth-degree black belt and has been teaching martial arts for more than 25 years. At his eponymous studio, he imparts the fundamentals of karate and tae kwon do to students from 6 to adult. The spacious facility's floors are lined with colored pads, and the walls feature mirrors both tall and wide for students to observe their form.
The padded floor reaches from wall to wall, providing maximum space for Krav Fit?s students to learn optimal self-defense skills. The Krav Kids program teaches basic moves while instilling a sense of discipline and respect, and the adult program tosses in more difficult moves, like weight training and parallel parking. Instructors also teach individuals in law enforcement and the military.
Arkansas Yoga Collective is where mat-users get centered and connect with their community. Atop joint-friendly cork flooring, students practice hatha yoga poses that perfectly blend posture work, breath work, and meditation into one balanced, revitalizing workout. Yoga classes are held nine times a day, seven days a week, and students can enhance their yoga practice in martial arts and yoga-martial arts fusion classes. But the good vibes don't stop flowing once clients finish their final asana?the facility also boasts massage services to soothe overworked muscles, a shop that sells everything from mats to organic body products, and a cafe where yogis can go to meet other like-minded exercisers or use in-class breathing techniques to cool a hot latte.
Students at Ahrang Martial Arts come away from classes fitter, lighter, and well versed in a variety of martial arts. From kickboxing and tae kwon do to muay thai and MMA, Ahrang's classes cater to students of all ages and ability levels. The company is so confident in the effectiveness of these classes that it guarantees students will lose 10 pounds after just six weeks of enrollment.
The certified instructors and black belts at Grandmaster Hans Martial Arts of Central Arkansas do more than just teach their students how to kick and hit. Instead, their sparring lessons in various arts––including jujitsu and tae kwon do––are designed to build confidence, teach bravery, and instill self-discipline. They do so for adults as well as kids, who can also take advantage of the facility's active after-school program.
