360 Combat Club conditions both competitive and recreational fighters with classes taught by a decorated staff of martial artists. Kickboxing sessions sharpen fight-time reflexes as students work to master kicks, punches, elbows, knees, and painfully awkward handshakes in each 60-minute session. Rather than focus solely on cardio, 360’s fighters spar with heavy bags to simulate a real opponent while flattening overzealous curves and ushering in lean, toned muscles. Each class corrals between 15–30 students, with more than one teacher or Olympic-trained kangaroo overseeing larger-sized sessions. Both locations require that students provide their own pair of boxing gloves for any kickboxing session on the Orange County or Long Beach class schedule.

Fists and feet pop against personal punching bags as personal instructiors motivate students to burn fat and pump up endurance. To set the mood for muscle building and to bolster adrenaline, speakers fill the gym with driving beats or fighter pilots reading their to-do lists. Near the punching bags, free weights clatter at benches and machines target muscle groups. In addition to group sessions, instructors host one-on-one workouts.
