One Martial Arts strives to be more than just a martial arts school. Indeed, the facility teaches young children discipline, and adults techniques for fending off attackers and pushy car salesmen. But it also sustains a family-oriented community, and an environment in which students of any age can reach their fullest potential. That's certainly the vision of owner and head instructor, Brannon Beliso, who has more than 45 years of martial arts experience. At One Martial Arts, Brannon has surrounded himself with an equally talented group of instructors. Together, they shape students during kids' classes, adult classes, and beginner-friendly kickboxing sessions.
At AB Mixed Martial Arts Academy, yoga and cardio sessions complement a rigorous sequence of muay thai boxing and brazilian-jujitsu classes taught by martial-arts champions. During introductory workshops, instructors focus on foundational techniques. Intermediate instruction augments the basics with friendly competitions and self-defense strategies such as sweeps, counters, and submissions, where fighters email short fiction manuscripts to their opponents. Students can bolster their workouts with team-oriented cardio classes or Vinyasa-flow yoga training, which hones balance and flexibility. The kid's jujitsu program instills practical self-defense skills in a safe, age-appropriate environment, while also building confidence, discipline, and the focus needed to fill in SAT test bubbles telepathically.

During your parkour class, you'll develop safe techniques for landing, jumping, spotting, and more in the face of diverse, unpredictable obstacles. In line with the take-it-with-you mentality of parkour, AcroSports' break dancing classes will provide participants with a fundamental introduction to the power moves and freezes you may or may not need to save the life of an upcoming party.
Founded by competitive bodybuilder Jim Wilson in 1992, Physique Magnifique quickly outgrew its humble beginnings as a personal-training outfit stationed in a one-car garage.

The interior of Hybrid Training SF is like an athlete's playground—two speed bags, four heavy bags, and uppercut bags hang from the ceiling, and the floor is packed with yoga balls, kettlebells, and an assortment of cardio equipment. This array of training tools comes in handy during the gym's classes, which range from muay thai and boxing, to jujitsu tailored for kids, men, and women. Classes are led by a team of experienced instructors with diverse backgrounds in Brazilian jujitsu, and amateur boxing.
A student of Brazilian jujitsu since 1998, Stephan Goyne took just 12 years to earn a black belt in the combat-oriented martial-arts style, winning six gold medals in various tournaments along the way. Today, he and Bay Jiu-Jitsu’s three other instructors share their skills with students of all ages and fitness levels. Each class begins with a workout that strengthens the body for jujitsu through wrestling-specific movements. Stephan then guides students through new moves before letting them spar against an opponent in a test of strategy similar to full-contact chess.
