Monday through Saturday, students grapple, strike, and kick their way through classes focusing on distinct kinds of martial-arts instruction. Women’s kickboxing classes are designed to provide an intensive workout and aim to tone participants while increasing their metabolism. Brazilian jujitsu attendees don the traditional gi uniform before learning throws, joint locks, and chokeholds without ever having to throw a punch or a surprise party to stop their opponents. Submission wrestling focuses on many of the same techniques, discarding the gi and incorporating moves from Western wrestling and Sambo into the mix. Punching bags wince before the ceaseless onslaught of boxing and muay-thai blows, as students work up a sweat planting fists, feet, elbows, and knees into the bag's soft sides.
Alpha Omega MMA
When students kick into one of the heavy bags dangling over Alpha Omega MMA's 20,000-square-foot training facility, they're following the same path trod by the gym's crew of professional and amateur fighters. A quintet of instructors trains clients in everything from the graceful takedowns and joint locks of Brazilian jiujitsu to the devastating short-range knee and elbow strikes of muay thai. They divide class groups up by student expertise, providing a venue for the casual exerciser to seek some conditioning and for aspiring fighters to hone their skills.
Kids leap into the fray with self-defense classes that center around a bullying-prevention curriculum, teaching tykes to stand up for themselves without resorting to violence unless it's absolutely necessary or limited to drop-kicking an imaginary friend into the sun to prove a point.
