The falcon stalks its prey with a mixture of cunning and agility, waiting for the opportune moment to swoop in and strike. The same can be said for the skilled martial artist, who patiently wears his opponent down before unleashing a flurry of kicks. Master Leroy N. Johnson Jr., the founder of Rising Falcon Fitness & Martial Arts, knows this well. Though the falcon serves as his inspiration, he is first a student of human anatomy. Master Johnson draws on his extensive knowledge of the body's inner workings to lead his students through challenging martial-arts fitness programs. To limit the intimidation factor, he keeps his class sizes small and discourages advanced students from demonstrating their falcon screeches in front of beginners.
