The staff at Studio Fusion invites kids and adults of all skill levels to dance and get in shape in a sprawling 6,000-square-foot space with four studios, two of which have Marley sprung floors to soften dancers' landings. The team of dance instructors includes choreographers and backup dancers to the stars, as well as two former members of the Laker Girls.
The experienced crew helps pre-cheerleaders build strength and flexibility during tumbling classes, and teaches beginning and advanced ballet and hip-hop moves to kids and teens. The multidisciplinary fitness program offers just as much variety, including the ballet-based movements of Barre Fusion, Bikini Boot Camp toning sessions, and kickboxing- and tai-chi-based Turbo Kick classes.
The space has been designed with a cozy student lounge with WiFi and a gourmet coffee bar, allowing youngsters to work on homework or their investment portfolios and parents to chat. In addition to annual dance recitals, the studio hosts dance and musical-theater camps. The Broadway Kids program hones the skills children need to be a triple threat—dancing, singing, and juggling three smartphones at once.
Krav maga is one of the fastest growing self-defense training programs in the world, and for good reason. The official martial-arts system of the Israeli Defense Forces is based on the idea that anyone—no matter the size or physical build—can successfully defend their own life.
The certified instructors at Beach Cities Krav Maga are serious about helping students learn effective self-defense techniques. Aside from standard classes for adults and children, they teach specialized courses in women's self-defense and police and military defense. There are even fitness classes that use disciplines such as kickboxing as a jumping-off point for a punishing workout. At the spacious and functional facility, bags hang from the ceiling and mirrors line the walls, helping to keep students in proper form as they learn to punch, jab, and steal their opponents' noses.
The instructors at KBK Kickboxing guide groups through calorie-burning cardio workouts while teaching them to defend themselves with techniques such as knee strikes. Students hone skills using hanging punching bags, weights, and even realistic dummies mounted on stands. The lessons, along with boot-camp classes that are also offered at KBK Kickboxing, can improve mental well-being as well as physical fitness.

Owned by five-time UFC heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz, Punishment Training Center puts poor habits in a chokehold with a full slate of MMA-inspired fitness classes for men, women, and children.

Unlike standard gyms, PTC also features a 1,500-square-foot grappling mat and a cage where students can train like their favorite MMA fighters.
The certified instructors at Tom Vo's Taekwondo Academy believe that developing good character and leadership skills are just as important as learning to punch and kick. At their all-ages martial-arts school, they teach both children and adults discipline, respect, and how to defend themselves using the moves of traditional martial arts as well as verbal defenses. Classes also offer an opportunity for students to let off stress and recharge their minds.
