Wall-to-wall padding produces the ideal environment for students to kick, punch, and leap their way across the inside of Hidden Valley Mixed Martial Arts. Experienced instructors guide students of all ages through Brazilian jujitsu, kodokan judo, and muay thai kickboxing techniques. Kids learn how to protect themselves against bullies by putting them in a joint lock and singing ?Why Can?t We Be Friends? on key. Adult classes focus on building martial-arts skills just as much as sculpting muscles for a full-body workout.
At Master Kwon's World Class Tae Kwon Do, Grand Master and seventh-degree black belt Jin Yong Kwon imparts more than a quarter-century of tae kwon do wisdom in lessons for participants of all ages. Through tae kwon do training, pupils develop technical martial-arts skills while seeking to build traits such as self-control, respect, and confidence that carry over into other facets of life.
Merpati Putih is an ancient Indonesian practice that combines fitness, breathing exercises, meditation, and self-defense. Highly trained instructors Nate and Mike Zeleznick’s passion and respect for the martial art have culminated in MP USA. At the accredited Merpati Putih martial-arts school, they pass on these skills in classes for children and adults of any fitness level, drawing from their work with high-ranking Merpati Putih specialists. Beyond teaching technical skills, sessions for adults focus on overall fitness and bolstering the connection between mind and body, and kids’ classes impart values such as self-confidence, manners, and responsibility. The Zeleznicks also arm women with the tools to defend themselves in self-defense classes.
Master Hong of Family Tae Kwon Do urges his students to "always learn to be teachable." This philosophy of respect underlies the school's entire martial-arts curriculum, weaving lessons on leadership skills in between those on launching self-defense strikes. From the 4-year-olds in the Little Dragons program to the adults in a weapons-training course, every pupil works to improve their character as they practice their kicks. The school's supportive class atmosphere draws entire families to the mat for its age-specific programs. Parent and child can earn successive belt colors in karate, kickboxing, and tae kwon do under the same roof, or recruit the staff for a birthday party where every guest gets to break a wooden board instead of besting a piñata in hand-to-hand combat.
Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a martial art based on self-defense that teaches wrestling-like grappling and ground-fighting skills to manipulate opponents into submission. Taught by black-belt native Brazilian fighters, Link's jiu-jitsu classes impart expert submission techniques with an emphasis on traditional Brazilian instruction and student safety when smothering unruly mailboxes in a triangle leg choke. In addition to absorbing rituals in the art of self-defense as jiu-jitsu Jedis, students also boost self-confidence and develop neglected muscles during intense full-body workouts. Link specializes in jiu-jitsu instruction, but classes in mixed martial arts and muay thai fighting provide disciplined cross-training challenges. Classes for beginners, experts, and all levels of students run Monday through Friday with enough flexibility to accommodate busy professionals, school-age children, and undercover heroes traveling on speeding passenger trains.
