Between fists whooshing through the air and feet stomping on the ground, SCS Martial Arts and Fitness can be a pretty noisy place. Under the tutelage of sensei like Sam Boyer, students master both the traditional forms of karate and modern methods of mixing martial arts. They learn strikes and kicks, grappling techniques borrowed from jiu-jitsu, and fitness routines based on fighters' workouts. Teachers maintain a sense of fun throughout the workouts, especially in kids' classes, which focus as much on character-building and confidence-boosting as they zero in on self defense techniques.
