Gleaning attention from media outlets such as Sports Illustrated, ESPN Radio, and the Washington Post, not to mention endorsements from major-league players such as Mariano Rivera, Manny Ramirez, and Mike Bordick, Frozen Ropes has gained a nationwide reputation thanks largely to its unique training model. Coaches from all baseball and softball backgrounds integrate instructional elements ranging from basic strength conditioning to biomechanics and sports psychology, helping students build their skills the same way dentists do—through a scientific approach to relentless drilling. Since 1989, the program has been used to help novices and professional-level players produce more of the company's namesake, the “frozen rope”—slang for a hard-hit line drive or a strong throw. At each of the company's nationwide facilities, instructors must complete Frozen Ropes' comprehensive curriculum—including hours of classroom instruction, shadowing, and mock lessons—before they can even begin teaching students the proper way to eat sunflower seeds.

Instructors host private classes or group students into their own rock-band performance troupes, and intensive camps culminate in field trips to Lincoln Center and a tour of a real recording studio.

Most children revel in playing video games, but it's often characterized as the antithesis of getting fit, what with all the endless hours of sitting idly and guzzling soft drinks. However, Fit Fusion Interactive's innovative instructors have managed to seamlessly integrate the two into their high-intensity martial-arts training program. To add an element of excitement and fun into getting fit and learning self-defense techniques, they utilize video-gaming fitness equipment. The stationary game bikes challenge cyclers with simulated on-screen hills, and the video game Dance Dance Revolution motivates dancers to work up a sweat to thumping tunes as they face off against imaginary opponents, who hail from the rival dance crew that served you at the soda-pop fountain last April.

To help their adult clients reach their fitness goals, these instructors also lead fitness classes such as karate classes and Fusion, which blends techniques from kickboxing, Pilates, and boot-camp classes. During Fitness Arcade sessions, students can take a break from all the fit-getting and compete against players from all over the world in the latest video games.

When players achieve a new level of fitness, they earn a colored bracelet to signify that they're moving up in Fit Fusion Interactive's ranking system. It is similar to the belt system in traditional martial-arts classes but made up of 15 levels, and students advance by acing physical challenges, passing tests of health knowledge, and slaying hydras with well-timed kickboxing moves. In addition to the classes and signature training program, kids and adults flock to the center for services such as personal training, parties, and special events.

After more than 16 years of practice and 500 hours of instructor training, he was eager and willing to pass on the techniques to others. He has trained military security personnel in the U.S. and New Zealand as well U.S. Air Marshals, police officers, and civilians and taught New York City corrections officers at multiple correctional facilities. Under his supervision, only nationally and internationally certified instructors helm Krav Maga classes at KMLI (Kombat Masters of Long Island).

The techniques are meant to guard against single, multiple, armed, and unarmed assailants, a goal that rallies Blitz and his team to raise the empowering cry, "Refuse to be a victim." Some of these techniques have been displayed when KMLI's Blitz Krav Maga was featured on News 12 Long Island.
