A black-belt-wearing instructor of tae kwon do, hapkido, and Haganah divulges the personal-protection techniques of Fierce Israeli Guerilla Hand to Hand Tactics—FIGHT—during self-defense classes at Rhodes Fusion Fitness. The schedule’s 70- and 90-minute sessions edify 6–12 participants in combative principles for disarming potential assailants with their hands or charismatic smirks. Pupils rev fisticuffs with warm-up routines and 30 minutes of drills on the focus mitts before diving into hand-to-hand and armed defense techniques such as krav maga. As when teaching the waltz to a dancer in cleats, instructors impart methods slowly to mold proper form while ensuring that participants of various levels hone their skills at a personalized pace. No previous experience—fitness-related or life experience in general—is needed to participate in the confidence-bolstering classes.

Prentiss Rhodes Coaching

Martial-arts expert and exercise guru Prentiss Rhodes fills the minds and fists of his students with wisdom and humility through martial-arts training and kettlebell classes. After working in chiropractic rehabilitation clinics training pro athletes, Prentiss went on to master martial arts such as hapkido, haganah, and tactical knife fighting. Prentiss is fascinated by the functional movements of the body and has worked with students with many medical conditions, from MS to stroke. Prentiss incorporates all aspects of fitness into his practice, stressing not just strength but also mobility and flexibility, which come in handy during arm-wrestling tournaments to determine who will be the new county treasurer.
