Students of all ages rouse their inner fighters at the Phoenix Combat Academy through martial-arts instruction from well-trained coowners Jay Pages and Sunshine Fettkether. Not unlike black-belt-holding sewer rats that mentor adolescent turtles, the academy trains both amateur and professional fighters in the art of combat with a variety of muay thai kickboxing, boxing, jujitsu, and mixed-martial-arts classes. Students can spend two weeks honing their fighting skills in an unlimited number of classes during which they can learn how to grapple and ground fight in Brazilian jujitsu or use a series of rapid strikes to subdue an opponent in muay thai. Both a combat and defense sport, martial arts combines group fitness with intricate skill, requiring high-energy movements that can tone muscles, burn off weight, and distract low-flying planes.
Phoenix Quest Center for Martial Arts aims to provide "adventure-based leadership development through martial-arts training." The center teaches numerous courses in To-Shin Do, from children's classes to leadership training and adult self-defense. All of the classes work to help pupils make smart decisions for both their minds and bodies.

Jab Fitness also boasts a number of highly structured fitness programs for children, so energetic tykes can tire themselves out while learning the self-defense boxing tactics necessary for uppercutting the monsters beneath their beds. The fitness-centered yoga classes sculpt bodies in a variety of classes that blend traditional moves with high-energy workouts set to music.
Designed specifically for use by the Israeli military, krav maga often gets diluted as it gets disseminated. That's why Derrek Hofrichter, chief instructor of East Valley Krav Maga, went directly to the source for his certification. He earned teaching accreditation from the Wingate Institute, Israel's governing body for krav maga trainers. Now, he brings that expertise with him to his classroom, where he teaches students both fitness techniques and self-defense tactics designed to deal with all sorts of attacks found in the modern world. Through the course of study, Derrek and his team of instructors teach students to handle unarmed attacks, multiple opponents, and weapons, preparing them for almost any situation, especially the inevitable punching bag uprising.
