Maybe it's a good thing the founders of Brazilian jiujitsu were not huge men. At just 135 pounds, co-founder Helio Gracie was forced to rely on leverage rather than rote strength or merciless tickling to help him overcome larger opponents. So in an effort to reduce the natural advantage of size, he worked these techniques into Brazilian jiujitsu's system of joint locks, chokes, and take-downs. In that way, Brazilian jiujitsu became a practical form of self-defense; you didn't have to be able to kick down a tree to become dangerous.

At Ralph Gracie Jiu Jitsu, black belt martial artist Dave Clahan and his team have armed students of every size with these same leverage-based self-defense techniques. Inside their 4,000 square foot studio, students of all ages and levels soak up grappling and submission skills they can refine for the ring or reserve for life-saving moments on the street. In addition to building physical ability, the instructors also emphasize building intangible qualities, such as confidence and self-respect.

Though kids, adults, and families walk away from Canyon Kajukenbo Martial Arts Institute knowing how to defend themselves, the studio aims to teach more than a basic set of skills. For kids, the three most important principles are self-discipline, self-defense, and self-confidence. The studio has spent years developing their children's program, honing teaching methods designed to help kids discover for themselves the benefits of those principles, rather than feeling compelled to follow them.

Adults, on the other hand, can count on the three F's: fitness, focus, and fun, during classes that focus on kickboxing and MMA techniques. The martial arts classes aim to teach self-defense to folks of every skill level. The kickboxing classes on the other hand are designed to melt fat fast by engaging the entire body to sculpt and tone physiques.

For the family classes instructors focus on bringing kids and parents together with routines that help them bond while getting them away from smartphones or the isolation pods required by our alien overlords now.

UFC Gym - Walnut Creek’s fight-centric gyms ditch the polished look of wood-floored workout studios for gritty, competitive spaces filled with 150-pound punching bags and intense workouts. Like a baker molding gingerbread men, UFC Gym- Walnut Creek sculpts six-packs with boxing and kickboxing classes. Although instructors and students agree that the gym’s atmosphere may enkindle intimidation in first-time attendees, most experience boosted self-confidence after conquering their first class. Private training sessions further stoke courage with workouts that leave patrons with the exhilaration of having survived 12 rounds in the ring or five minutes in a high-school lunchroom.

If the punching bags that line the workout rooms at Max Combat Fitness could talk, they would probably still keep their mouths shut. That?s how scared they are of the professional and amateur fighters who inflict a beating on them every day during the gym?s muay thai and mixed-martial-arts classes. Led by chiseled combatant George Tsutsui, the team of instructors leads students of all ages and skill levels through the basics of hand-to-hand martial arts. If they aren?t interested in learning MMA strikes or jujitsu grappling techniques, students can burn calories in cardio-kickboxing classes that eschew contact in favor of aerobic dance moves. Similarly, the gym?s conditioning classes improve strength, speed, stamina, and flexibility through stretching exercises and explosive bursts of movement.

During each session, they teach respect and build listening skills and focus. The team’s professional oversight keeps students safe during sparing sessions and practice. The dojo’s padded floors protect against falls, and specialized gloves soften any blows.
