With an extensive background in tae kwon do, Lance Farrell knows how to take down opponents. Fortunately, his experience as an instructor helps him teach others to do the same. At Farrell's U.S. Martial Arts & Fitness, students of all ability levels immerse themselves in the world of Korea's most famous martial art, mastering graceful kicks and strikes while internalizing tenets such as courtesy, integrity, and self-control. Along the way, they also learn valuable self-defense skills, strengthen muscles and minds, and even hone leadership abilities through in-class cooperation. All of this training doesn't go unnoticed; students who show promise and progress may find themselves on the path towards life as one of the school's black belts.
"Warrior": anyone that is prepared to work hard and develop oneself in an effort to battle against his or her particular challenges in life. That's the way Training for Warriors defines a trainee worthy of its fitness classes. When the training system was created, only athletes qualified as warriors. But as time wore on, it became clear that this holistic wellness program wasn't sports-specific. Its blend of speed, strength, and endurance training, along with flexibility moves and nutrition, create a regime that benefits any motivated client. Thanks to ongoing assessments and feedback, trainees of all aptitudes get closer and closer to their fitness goals.
When they teach escapes, positional control, and submissions, the instructors at The Forge Martial Arts and Fitness Training Center aren't just teaching grappling—they're helping students to build confidence. Their drills, all of which incorporate Gracie Jiu-Jitsu techniques, are as relevant to exercising in the gym as they are in real-life self-defense scenarios. And, to ensure their pupils progress, the teachers use positive encouragement as motivation. They welcome kids as young as five to practice blocks, escapes, and grappling moves during classes, awarding higher belt levels as the group's form improves.
Some people are born with a misplaced overabundance of self-confidence, as the popularity of karaoke bars can attest, but most develop the trait by accomplishing feats they never believed they were capable of. The black-belt-wearing, championship-winning instructors that helm ATA Karate?s 6 locations seek to foster that self-confidence by teaching students the art of self-defense in its many forms, including tae kwon do and Krav Maga. With a client base ranging from toddlers to adults, the ATA staff keeps people empowered and fit by demonstrating effective ways to properly punch, kick, and look cool in slow motion. In addition to teaching martial arts, instructors host leadership programs that show kids how to avoid the perils of peer pressure and adults how to maintain order in their lives. They also cover topics such as dealing with bullies and eliminating child abductions in a series of regular workshops.
