The experienced staff at JAB Fitness help patrons sculpt shapely physiques, imparting strength and discipline with a curriculum of fight-inspired class styles. Focusing on high-energy combat-sports training, instructors enhance each session with adrenaline-pumping music, motivational pep talks, and punching bags that bear a striking resemblance to your fifth-grade bully?s henchmen. Besides muay thai, jiu jitsu, and kickboxing boot camps, the group classes also include heart-pounding spin sessions and boot camps. Other classes, such as hot yoga and suspension training, may be less energetic, but they are just as essential for whole-body fitness.
Designed specifically for use by the Israeli military, krav maga often gets diluted as it gets disseminated. That's why Derrek Hofrichter, chief instructor of East Valley Krav Maga, went directly to the source for his certification. He earned teaching accreditation from the Wingate Institute, Israel's governing body for krav maga trainers. Now, he brings that expertise with him to his classroom, where he teaches students both fitness techniques and self-defense tactics designed to deal with all sorts of attacks found in the modern world. Through the course of study, Derrek and his team of instructors teach students to handle unarmed attacks, multiple opponents, and weapons, preparing them for almost any situation, especially the inevitable punching bag uprising.
