Champions Training Center ushers clients toward fitness-related and competitive goals with a comprehensive martial-arts curriculum—including classes in Brazilian jujitsu, muay thai, boxing, wrestling, and judo—as well as intense fitness and boot-camp courses. The center’s champion trainers impart expert knowledge and well-honed techniques to students of all skill and fitness levels, whether they’re looking for an edge in competitive combat, a boost in self-defense skills, or the ability to deal out vigilante justice to acerbic street magicians. The center also administers sweat-wringing conditioning routines through its fitness and kickboxing classes as well as its calorie-conflagrating boot camps.
Savannah ATA buffs bodies and bolsters confidence with holistic fighting and defense classes centered around the ancient art of tae kwon do.

An experienced, safety-minded, and mostly uninvisible staff of instructors guides fighters through each group class, promoting perseverance and confidence and teaching awareness skills, and the included uniform ($40 value) gives force wielders the appropriate garb for their newfound skill set and Jedi–themed tea parties.
