While some traditional martial-art schools merely practice patterns or breaking boards, the teachers at Hapkido-USA Springfield LLC buck that trend, focusing purely on the art of self defense in a disciplined, traditional martial-arts environment. "We teach...elements of boxing, kickboxing, ground defense, joint locks, throwing and pinning techniques," says the owner.

Making sure that burgeoning martial artists learned such useful techniques is the very thing that drew him to teaching in the first place, and it remains his favorite part of his job. "[I like] watching students grow in their knowledge and confidence," he says. "In hapkido, people get the increase in self-confidence with a realistic expectation of their self-defense skills."

At Westside MMA, professional mixed-martial-arts instructors tutor students in the calorie-destroying, stress-relieving methods of attack and defense. Having trained everyone from first-timers to internationally competitive pros, the Westside MMA staff is fully equipped to teach pupils the fundamentals of kickboxing. Participants will relish a month of fun, challenging workouts while getting their gloves on proper punch and kick techniques, blocking skills, and footwork drills designed to make full-contact ballroom dancing less intimidating. In addition to forging a stronger core and increasing flexibility in its practitioners, kickboxing can help build confidence, and as a practical self-defense method, it has proved to be 100% more effective than carrying around a balloon with a scary face drawn on it.
