Co-ed jiu-jitsu or women-only kickboxing classes guide pupils through an intense workout focused on self-defense and cooperative exercise. Jiu-jitsu leaders impart combat manoeuvres while boosting self-confidence. During kickboxing sessions, calisthenics exercises build muscle strength and cardio routines wring sweat from pores and increase endurance. Attendees throw fists, feet, elbows, and knees into pads and dummies during drills inspired by Draht's time training to fight professionally. Both the Vernon and Salmon Arm schedules highlight ju-jitsu classes in green and women’s kickboxing classes in pink, easily identifying which days the punching bags might try to call in sick.
Master Carlos Gracie, Jr. founded the Gracie Barra Association—which now encompasses more than 300 Brazilian jiu-jitsu schools—to aid students in developing their understanding of the art beyond simple competition. His schools teach not only combative techniques, but a four-pillared philosophy which instructors and students embrace: brotherhood, cooperation, discipline, and respect.
The instructors work with other trainers to expand the class repertoire beyond ju-jitsu, offering women's kickboxing, muay thai, strength training, and kid's classes. Each teacher brings a long history of competitive expertise in the subject they teach and bears a high-ranking belt in the art of ju-jitsu, with Mr. Reichenbach possessing a brown belt himself. The facility they teach in consists of a series of open training areas, which rely upon big floor-to-ceiling windows and glow-in-the-dark teachers for light.

Whether students want to tone their muscles, learn self-defense, or simply compete in martial arts, Pacific Top Team Kelowna is there for them. Brazilian jiujitsu classes help students in all three areas, whereas Future Champion kids' classes focus on building the values every athlete needs, including self-discipline, cooperation, and respect.
Women's only kickboxing and self-defense classes also build self-confidence, and they empower women by teaching them how to fend off an attacker. The classes rely on techniques from kickboxing, boxing, and jiujitsu, and often have a party-like atmosphere complete with pounding music and balloon animals.
During muay thai classes, instructor and world muay thai champion Adolfo Lozano teaches students the crucial eight points of contact—the two hands, elbows, knees, and shins. This class is designed to push bodies to their limits.
