Developed for centuries in China, Kung Fu?or Chinese Martial Arts?includes a series of strengthening and self-defense techniques that have been perfected over thousands of years. At Rothrock's Kung Fu & Tai Chi, these techniques are incorporated into Kung Fu Fit, unique classes for all ages and levels of physicality. These classes combine the techniques of Kung Fu and kickboxing with instructors helping students learn not just to defensive measures, but also how to strengthen and tone their bodies. Kung fu classes are also available just for kids, where adolescents can work on developing respect, discipline, and the agility to complete chores using only their toes.

Big-box gyms filled with elaborate weight-training machines leave trainers at CrossFit Energy shaking their heads. That's because they know that fancy equipment isn't what gets people fit. Instead, their small-group workouts focus on functional movements such as squats and deadlifts, supplemented with bursts of high-intensity aerobic activity. This straightforward approach to exercise yields more effective workouts for participants of all ages and levels, as well as some much needed rest for the hamsters that power all treadmills.
At Family Martial Arts, we are not interested in just teaching martial arts, we are concerned about the complete personal development of each student. Individual attention is an aspect of each and every lesson, allowing all students to progress quickly and confidently toward achieving their personal goals.
