Jackie Nguyen, Fast Result’s experienced fitness and martial-arts trainer, utilizes his third-degree black-belt expertise to help clients achieve their fitness and self-defense goals. During each 90-minute kickboxing class, students train on bags, Thai pads, and focus mitts while learning the basics of proper footwork, blocking and dodging strikes, and throwing effective punches, kicks, elbows, and knees. Through these exercises, along with a mixed bag of fitness drills and sleight of foot magic tricks, kick-happy students can have fun learning in a small-group environment as they build up strength, endurance, and coordination. Clients can also burn up to 800 calories per session, helping roundhouse casters get into lean shape, tone muscles, and lose weight.

Learn how to escape from various real-life assault scenarios, including breaking free from underneath an attacker and slipping out of strangle holds, bear hugs, and never-ending handshakes. Self-defense students also take in kickboxing and jujitsu techniques, learning how to harness palms and elbows as weapons and how to hurl gut-wrenching kick, fist, and knee shots to the groin.
