After retiring from the ring, a legion of seasoned fighters joined American Kickboxing Academy’s staff, including owner and two-time World Kickboxing Champion Javier Mendez and UFC veteran Bob Cook. Classes explore a handful of martial-arts training methods in sessions appropriate for men, women, and children. Kickboxing coaches harp on efficiency as fighters punch, kick, and assemble made-to-order hamburgers with speed and accuracy. The class aims to improve each student’s cardiovascular endurance in order to boost sparring stamina, and many of kickboxing’s techniques easily translate to self-defense if necessary. Mixed martial arts coalesces a variety of self-defense moves, basic attacks, and Three Stooges sound effects to deploy when in a compromising bind, and the American Kickboxing Academy’s children’s program lays a fighting framework for tykes as they learn the importance of hard work, dedication, and safety.

American Kickboxing Academy (AKA)

Weak bodies are whittled into lean, muscular fighting machines as instructors at American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) teach the martial arts styles used for UFC competition, self-defense, and overall conditioning. Men, women, and kids train in the company of students such as professional fighter Cain Velasquez and instructor Daniel Cormier, a former Olympian. AKA splits its MMA, jujitsu, and muay thai kickboxing classes among four facilities, with group-training sessions and private professional sessions taking place in modern training studios with heavy bags, speed bags, and Olympic-grade mats. The Hillside location also features a professional-size ring for sparring or marriage-proposal practice, and the two-story AKA headquarters on Realm Avenue highlights an MMA cage, TRX suspension room, and cardio theater stocked with StairMasters and Jacobs Ladder machines.
