At Title Boxing Club, professional boxers, kickboxers, and mixed martial artists may lead the classes, but their goal is fitness, not fighting. They push patrons to strengthen their bodies from head to toe during one-hour sessions, instructing them to pummel 100-pound bags with jabs, hooks, and roundhouse kicks. They encourage members to hit the bags as hard or soft as they like and to move at their own pace, so the classes accessible to all fitness levels. During one-on-one training sessions, trainers use custom routines of weightlifting, cardio, and sparring to show students how to float like a butterfly and sting like a venomous butterfly. They also develop custom diet plans and exercise routines to help clients meet their fitness goals.
The martial-arts masters at AKKA Karate USA specialize in kenpo karate, a unique form that builds muscle tone and reflexes in order to use the body’s natural weapons—hands and feet—for self-defense. In addition to kenpo, they also lead classes focused on MMA, tai chi, and weapons training. Often, AKKA holds special events such as tournaments and sparring seminars. In addition to learning self-defense techniques, students also build valuable life skills such as an appreciation for fitness, discipline, and self-confidence.
A joint venture between a professional boxer and a team of successful kickboxing-equipment tycoons, TITLE Boxing Club maintains a network of dozens of studios spread across more than 20 states, winning over a devoted clientele with its invigorating and engaging boxing- and kickboxing-themed classes. Each workout uses the heart-healthy exercise of cardio training to satisfy people?s innate desire to punch and kick something other than a broken jukebox. Participants build lithe, strong muscle tissue by delivering powerful blows to punching bags, and build flexibility and agility by practicing roundhouse kicks and hooks. Students can build their core strength and endurance with medicine balls and burpees, enlist a qualified personal trainer to practice their newfound skills in the ring, or just torch calories during intense full-body Power Hour workouts.
Chung Do Kwan is one of the oldest styles of Kwan and was a precursor to Taekwondo. The style trains students to achieve their potential through focused concentration and disciplined instruction. It rolls all aspects of training in the martial arts into one powerful package. Every lesson will leave you with a complete workout of the physical, mental, and spiritual corners of your bodily triangle.

Brass Boxing and Fitness's curriculum combines fitness and martial arts, catering to members interested in each category with a broad array of classes. Fitness classes often take exercises from the fighting ones, and fighters often use the more-fitness focused sessions to help them get in top shape. In both classes, instructors focus on good form above all, making sure students learn healthy, proper ways to perform martial arts moves so that they can sustain an intense workout or compete at their best in the ring, even if "Eye of the Tiger" isn't playing the background.
Of course, that's not to say every class is the same; each session retains its individual focus. The Brazilian jiu-jitsu instructor, for instance, focuses on techniques that he uses to compete in international tournaments. The youth mixed-martial-arts teacher centers instruction around anti-bullying techniques, as well as the principles of discipline, kindness, awareness, and toughness.
