Professional Fencing Coach and Master Slava Danilov, as well as his lieutenant, Samir Machmoud, combine to bring more than 60 years of international fencing experience to Morris Fencing Club. Their collective expertise includes a bronze medal in the 1996 World Cup and an Egyptian national championship, plus coaching accolades that include leading their students to multiple World Junior Championship medals. Despite this imposing body of work, the duo also specializes in teaching fencing to beginners through their club programs, such as group lessons, private instruction, and camps. Regardless of prior experience, whether an Olympic-level epee swordsman or a person whose closest activity to fencing is making shish kabobs, students can comfortably enroll at Morris Fencing Club to build character and stamina through participation in the fun and active sport.
Eagle Mixed Martial Arts’ owner and chief instructor Master Jan is a man of simple tastes: he enjoys sparring, archery, watching Jackie Chan’s Drunken Master, and molding the lives of students through ancient training regimens. Assisted by a team of teachers—many of who were or still are his own students—the Master imparts the wisdom he gained on his way to a fifth-degree black belt during kids’ karate classes, adult fitness kickboxing classes, and full mixed martial arts conditioning. Students switch styles, learning basic self-defense techniques, advanced muay thai strikes, and the grappling art of Brazilian jiu-jitsu, which uses a combination of choke holds, joint locks, and discretely hidden car keys to trap an opponent.
Founded by MMA aficionado Mike Constantino, AMA Fight Club caters to the needs of casual practitioners as well as serious competitors. The center's programs create a welcoming space for students of all fitness levels and interests, providing them with opportunities to lose weight, strengthen muscles, and bolster cardiovascular endurance all while learning self-defense techniques in a safe and supportive environment. Led by one of the facility's six black-belt instructors, Brazilian jiu-jistu classes teach attendees how to grapple and apply various holds, and Muay Thai kickboxing lessons cover the martial art style's powerful blows, including knee and elbow strikes. AMA Fight Club even offers programs for children, covering character development and self-control as well as basic defense techniques.
