Trainers adapt the school’s principles of self-discipline to personal sessions, customizing conditioning exercises to individuals’ goals and fitness levels to help them burn calories while learning self-defense skills. <p>
Shaku Family Martial Arts
Dedicated to heightening pupils’ senses of respect, confidence, discipline, and self-defense, Shaku Family Martial Arts professionally trained instructors guide students of all ages through rigourous fitness programs held in a 4,500 square foot space full of heavy bags and training equipment. Instructors helm classes that employ moves from martial arts modalities including Muay Thai kickboxing, ju-jitsu, and kung fu, giving humans a diverse edge over toe-stubbing door jambs.
Women’s kickboxing classes relieve tension with an intense cardio regimen designed to bolster abs and self-defense, and an MMA class fuses kickboxing and submission grappling into a potent combat cocktail. Teachers use a principle-based approach to self-defense, addressing the physics and philosophy behind each technique for hand-to-hand combat. Among other strategies, fighters learn to use leverage to overwhelm an opponent and master striking angles that are difficult to block. The house style draws techniques from kung fu, kempo, kickboxing, and Brazilian jiu-jitsu, arming disciples with a comprehensive methodology unique to Shaku.
