For nearly two decades, USA Karate & Fitness Official Training Center’s experienced martial artists have taught students the foundations of martial arts and self-defense and encouraged them to approach life with positivity. As eager students observe, the certified instructors at each of USA Karate & Fitness Official Training Center's six locations lead them through age-appropriate classes, helping them overcome fear and obstacles through basic martial arts stances and maneuvers. Strength and poise surge within pupils during mixed martial-arts training, helping practitioners harness leverage to administer self-defense blows. Likewise, cardio kickboxing workouts burn calories and impart defense techniques through punching, kicking, and nail-sharpening exercises. Between training sessions, the trainers incorporate martial arts into ninja-themed in-studio birthday parties that invite kids and their friends to celebrate a special day under their guidance.
Down Dog Wellness helps others build confidence and grow in spirituality while making their muscles and joints more flexible. This multifaceted approach is the goal of the studio's central mission: to show that yoga is a way to manage stress and tap into new wells of energy as well as a fitness regimen. In this spirit, the instructors guide clients through private or group yoga classes, during which they introduce breathing and poses designed to help everyone involved achieve whole-body awareness, build strength, and dodge any weird bugs crawling across the floor. Alternatively, yoga-boot-camp sessions crank up the pace with interval training. The studio also combines principles of emotional and physical wellness in health consultations, which focus on healthy eating and stress-management.
