The atmosphere at Pine Ave DG Boxing is fun, but the attitude is serious. Throughout the gym, fighters of all ages and experience levels pummel heavy bags and speed bags, work on footwork in the ring, and jump rope to condition their bodies into that of an elite athlete. At the center of it all is Anthony Skalberg, a retired boxer who decided to open up his own boxing gym and share his love for the sport with everyone.
At the gym, expert instructors train fighters for amateur and pro competition, but they also believe that boxing should be used for fitness, self-defense, and building self-esteem. During group classes organized by experience level, students work together to learn fundamentals such as punching, weaving, and trading mouth guards after each match. Instructors work to give each student individual attention, ensuring that they get personal time to work on mitt training. They also specialize in private boxing training at the gym and offer one-on-one mobile lessons at locations convenient for the student.
The group dynamic of a boot camp fitness class can help keep classmates motivated. S&J Fitness and Kickboxing takes this concept a step further with its playdate fitness: parents can bring their kids with them to fitness class and drop them off for supervised active play at the company's outdoor jungle gym. Afterwards, the adults can join their own fitness class led by an expert instructor. It's a great way for adults and kids to appreciate fitness, and it's just one of many class offerings at S&J Fitness and Kickboxing. The non-military style boot camp combines the rapid strength-building of boot camps with the techniques and skills of kickboxing. Instructors can also help volleyball athletes and aspiring kangaroo impersonators with vertical jump training.
Alan Predolin, chief instructor of 360 Krav Maga, doesn't pull any punches, unless he's clipping knees, poking throats, and disabling solar plexuses. Already trained in the martial arts by the age of 7, Alan first got a thirst for reality-based, applicable combat techniques when he was a teenage member of the Guardian Angels. While most kids his age were fighting pimples, Alan was fighting gang members and drug dealers in Hell's Kitchen and the South Bronx. When he was 21, the Italian Army sent Alan to Israel, where he discovered the self-defense art of krav maga and spent his years mastering and sharing its effective techniques.
Years later, Alan has become the guy that local and federal law-enforcement and military units flock to for teaching their recruits the art of quick self-defense. At the 360 Krav Magna schools—the only schools in Tustin, Long Beach, Los Angeles, and Orange County to be certified by Krav Maga Global of Israel—Alan's team of certified instructors instill students with the smarts to disarm and disable any viable threat at instinct speed. For those looking for a muscle-sculpting, fat-burning workouts with less eye-poking, 360 Krav Magna's instructors also specialize in intensive kickboxing classes that merge fitness and combat training.
