Fourth-degree black belt Danielle Di Marco leads 60-minute cardio-kickboxing and boot-camp classes, combining aerobics and self-defense tactics to tone and strengthen.
During kids’ taekwondo, instructors aim to teach self-defence and self-confidence in a fun and safe environment. Children perfect their taekwondo forms while working in small groups practicing their techniques on punching bags. As time goes on, dedicated students will enjoy the rock-climbing wall, racing games, and contests.
Although seventh-degree black belt Mike Martin is a world taekwondo champion, his most-prized distinction is simply "dad." He takes the concept of family seriously, incorporating it into his studio's philosophy. He helms martial-arts classes in which whole clans of moms, dads, and siblings can learn the art of self-defence or settle unresolved remote-control battles together in the same session. He also leads classes designed exclusively for adults only and for kids only. In addition to hand-to-hand combat, Rising Sun instructors also lead kickboxing classes and boot camps, as well as courses in Korean swordsmanship.
International flags hang over the mat-covered practice area, which also boasts wall grips for climbing and a mountain-range mural. The space additionally plays host to kids’ birthday parties in which tots spend their afternoon taking in a martial-arts lesson, climbing on the walls, and breaking boards with their bare hands, just like carpenters who've replaced their hands with saws.
