Dojo 3’s 2012 class schedule follows the exact same days and times as its 2011 schedule.
Under the guidance of Dojo 3’s trained instructors, students hone minds and bodies during a variety of fitness, self-defense, and martial-arts classes. Zumba burns calories sneakily as it gets students’ hips swaying to the rhythm of Latin tunes—its interval- and resistance-training exercises disguising themselves as fun dance moves. Krav Maga classes introduce attendees to a self-defense system used by both the Israeli Defense Forces and law-enforcement officers in the United States, teaching students how to react physically and mentally in dangerous situations. During the course of Krav Maga lessons, students work to boost physical strength and sharpen instincts, swiftly gaining the ability to respond to punches, kicks, and aggressive hair tousling.
With an additional five-pack of fitness classes, students can choose from the studio’s extensive repertoire, including mixed-martial-arts courses that focus on tae kwon do, but also draw upon strategies used in karate, kung fu, judo, and a variety of other disciplines. The studio’s traditional tatami mats provide a backdrop for warming up hamstrings with a downward dog or stretching triceps with an upward fist pump.
Champions of helping clients attain their fitness goals, Dojo 3’s team of seasoned instructors cater to all manner of workout styles and sensibilities with a variety of sweat-inducing classes. They elucidate self-defense techniques during Krav Maga classes, preparing students to react defensively to surprise attacks. Furthering self-defense skills, their rigorous curriculum of mixed-martial-arts classes combines a variety of martial-arts modalities from around the world, including karate, kung fu, boxing, and kenpo. Latin beats fuel Zumba classes, in which instructors lead high-energy routines that marry dance moves and interval training, and small-group and private yoga lessons render bodies flexible enough to comfortably lie in a rack.
