When you enter Tapout Training Center’s main workout area and turn around, you’ll see a large graffiti mural with the word “tapout” clutched between the talons of a red-eyed bald eagle. The bird reminds everyone why they’re here—to partake in workouts that merge exercise and self-defense. Students can spar in the octagon ring, wrestle in the grappling area, punch and kick hanging bags, or sign up for one of many fitness classes, including boxing, muay thai kickboxing, and jujitsu. Every activity is monitored and motivated by an experienced staff led by Brazilian jujitsu and MMA instructor Frank Colcher, a mixed martial artist who’s been able to break oil paintings over his knee for more than a quarter of a century.
