At AB Mixed Martial Arts Academy, Pilates and boot-camp-style CrossFit sessions complement a rigorous sequence of muay thai, Capoeira, and Brazilian jujitsu classes taught by martial-arts champions. During introductory classes, instructors focus on fundamental techniques to accommodate patrons of all ages and experience levels. Advanced instruction augments the basics with self-defense strategies such as sweeps, counters, and submissions. Students can bolster their workouts with independent exercise at the newly remodeled workout area, which features a variety of equipment and weights. 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 his time as a certified Thai massage practitioner, Carey "Kari" Hassinger has developed his own style. He works deep into muscles, using Old Medicine Hospital Thai massage techniques to release tension and restore the body's balance and range of motion. Working out of both San Francisco and San Mateo, Kari treats one or two people at a time, and occasionally dons lipgloss and eyeshadow to show his San Francisco pride. His couples massages are interactive and encourage duos to learn how to massage each other at home or massage the people in front of them at the symphony.
For the uninitiated, parkour involves the fluid and efficient conquering of any environment, man-made or naturally occurring, using nothing more than the present obstacles, your body, and your imagination. Originally ignited in France, the discipline continues to grow and has even nabbed further exposure with MTV's Ultimate Parkour Challenge. 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.
