Under the guidance of trained instructors, Dojo 3 hones minds and bodies with a schedule brimming with a variety of fitness, self-defense, and martial-arts classes. Customers can mix and match classes, and may give the five-pack as a gift or keep it all to themselves. Zumba gets hips swaying and calories hopping to the rhythm of Latin tunes, and interval and resistance training disguise themselves as fun dance moves. Krav Maga, a self-defense system used by both the Israeli Defense Forces and law-enforcement officers in the United States, teaches students how to react physically and mentally in dangerous situations. Muscles develop strength and instincts, swiftly gaining proficiency in the basic techniques of the discipline and the ability to respond to punches, kicks, and aggressive hair tousling. The studio's mixed marital arts courses focus on tae kwon do, but also draw upon strategies used in karate, kung-fu, judo, and a variety of other disciplines.
Gaia Flow yoga blends aspects of Hatha, Raja, and Bhakti disciplines in classes appropriate for both beginners and advanced yogis. Based on the movement and flow of the earth, sessions stretch bodies and build strength while calming the mind. 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.
