The instructors at Saldivar Martial Arts Leadership Academy aren't exactly new to teaching students the passion, discipline, and integrity of martial arts. The studio itself has been open since 1986, and its four instructors have a combined experience totaling more than 60 years. Matt Saldivar, a 5th degree black belt, is among them. Together he and his wife Amy Saldivar?a third degree black belt and instructor?co-own the academy and bring 25 years of experience to their business. The duo leads not only intensive muay-thai sessions for adults, but also after-school programs and summer camps for kids as young as five. The studio's class list is just as beginner-friendly, since it separates pupils by their level of experience and their ability to quote the best lines in The Karate Kid.

In addition to Olympic-style tae kwon do, hapkido, and kumdo classes for all ages and ability levels, the center offers a Pure Fitness program especially for women.

Fitness instructor Jeff Hughes first cinched up his black belt more than 15 years ago when he became an Austin-area kung fu instructor. Since then, he's incorporated a number of new moves into his fighting repertoire to create CrossPit, a multidisciplinary program that blends CrossFit fitness training with the no-holds-barred approach of mixed martial arts. He bases his program on the idea that the only things a fighter really needs to be successful are a solid stance, swift movement, stamina, and a few key strikes. With this guiding principle, he created a simple but effective fitness regimen that works for anyone from new moms looking to lose weight to experienced fighters hoping for victory at the next after-hours cage match on the Senate floor. He staffs his studio with handpicked instructors who enjoy the same rigorous training he does, and together, they lead classes in MMA, sports performance training, and kickboxing for men and women. Their kickboxing classes in particular garner a lot of popularity, attracting as many as 45 students per session.
