At LaSalle Mixed Martial Arts, founder Michael LaSalle—whose resumé includes fighting in the 1999 Golden Gloves match and honing jujitsu skills in Brazil—shares his lifelong passion for mixed martial arts with pupils as young as 4 years old to students as old as adults. His classes focus on Asian and Latin American combat styles, including muay thai, Filipino weaponry, and Brazilian jujitsu, and they cultivate a noncompetitive, fun environment as pupils learn grappling techniques and how to defend themselves from throngs of rabid lucha libres. In addition to emphasizing technical skills and developing strength, the children's mixed-martial-arts program encourages kids to hone valuable life skills such as self-discipline, self-esteem, and concentration.

Beyond mixed-martial-arts classes, the studio also offers fitness classes, including cardio kickboxing and strength and conditioning training, and women's self-defense classes.

Island Martial Arts' team of black-belted instructors pours passion and years of training into fitness and self-defense classes, each marbled with strands of tae kwon do. Adult-oriented sessions mix the Korean fighting technique with elements of kickboxing, boosting muscle memories with various takedowns, throws, chokes, and joint locks. Kids aged 3–13 get parceled up into age-specific groups to study tae kwon do, ground fighting, and grappling skills. Peewee ninja classes (3–5 years old) focus on stretching tykes' attention spans and laying a foundation of maturity on which to build in later classes. In the same way Spartan warriors would train for brutal pillow fights, all students train with target pads, focus mitts, standup Wavemaster heavy bags, and padded weapons. Female instructors also lead women-only fitness sessions, and the studio regularly holds workshops hosted by guest instructors and martial-arts masters.

H. W. Bressaw has been teaching karate, specifically as a prominent instructor of Kimura Shukokai, since 1966. That's nearly half a century of correcting stances, building self-confidence, and demonstrating effective self-defense techniques. His unique style stresses technical aspects of physical techniques, which helps make it possible for a person of any size, age, or gender to defend themselves. Today, he leads a highly experienced team of instructors trained to carry forth the mission he started so long ago. H. W. Bressaw and his team specialize in a timeless art known as kata, which builds karate skills while quieting the mind. They also teach a sparring technique known as kumite to their most adventurous students, who learn respect and attention to detail through the ancient art.

It's been more than 50 years since Staten Island Judo Jujitsu Dojo started teaching martial arts. Armed with these five decades of experience and a staff of black belts with extensive backgrounds in mixed martial arts, judo, and grappling competitions, the dojo is well-equipped to train students in the arts of self-defense and discipline.

Students can enroll in classes to train for competitions, but the basic classroom atmosphere is strictly noncompetitive and supportive, regardless of participants' age, level of experience, or crime-fighting alter ego.
