The black-belted trainers at Vanguard Self Defense and Fitness condition and arm students with self-defense skills that may come in handy in real-life situations. Students can focus solely on self-defense techniques with krav maga, an intuitive street-fighting style developed by a decorated Slovakian athlete in the 1930s. Participants in our kickboxing classes or Iron Gut Bootcamp can burn up to 1,000 calories. Field-day classes take fitness training outdoors for sunshine and fresh air. Athletes who attend a weapon-disarming seminar learn to strip assailants of knives, guns, or sticks.
