Defensive Arts Training Centre offers four class types: kickboxing, mixed martial arts, Brazilian jujitsu, and kids' martial arts. In mixed-martial-arts classes, masters teach a combination of moves from various disciplines, such as karate, judo, and muay thai. Meanwhile, youth aged 4–18 progress between belts by grappling and self-defense in kids classes. Brazilian jujitsu instructors impart a foundation for practical defense that involves submission holds and shadow-puppet decoys, while kickboxing participants build strength as they work up a full-body sweat.
Typically, at Fit2Box Fitness Studio, you'll only see one or two people working out. But don't mistake that number for a lack of interest: the absence of a crowd is by design. In order to create an intimate space where clients can focus solely on exercising and then flexing in the mirror, ACE-certified personal trainer Eric Pfahler only schedules one client or couple per hour. During that hour, Pfahler's background in boxing becomes apparent, as his fitness programs combine kickboxing and boxing movements with strength training and cardio exercises.
At Master Chong's World Class Tae Kwon Do, instructors teach discipline and self-defense skills in classes for kids, adults, and families. Following the principles of founder Grandmaster Sun Ki Chong, teachers help students develop not only technical martial-arts skills but also leadership abilities and mental focus.
