With more than 40 years’ teaching experience, VMA Kempo Jiu Jitsu’s certified instructors impart self-defense skills, confidence, and discipline in a range of martial-arts and fitness classes. In coed, women’s-only, and children's classes, students kick, strike, and grapple as they hone techniques drawn from kenpo, brazilian jujitsu, mixed martial arts, and Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots. In women’s-only cardio-kickboxing classes, students boost endurance, flexibility, and strength as pounds melt away.
Victory Martial Arts' MMA style blends six self-defense methods into one potent cocktail. Its constituent elements range from kenpo, which focuses on high-speed striking, to muay thai kickboxing, often dubbed "the art of eight limbs" because of its scrappy use of fists, elbows, knees, shins, and feet. There are swirls of Western boxing and wrestling-style floor grappling, too. To complement MMA sessions, the studio hosts single-style classes on kenpo and Brazilian jujitsu—and a sequence designed especially for kids and teens.
At Kickboxing Selden, it only takes 45 or 60 minutes to start writing a new chapter. That is, one where fitness is a priority. Students punch and kick their way to stronger, leaner frames in bootcamp classes held once or twice every day. On Friday and Saturday mornings, the studio also offers Body Sculpt classes.
