Aside from climbing out of rattlesnake-infested quicksand or posing for rattlesnake-infested watercolor portraits, few activities combine the focus and physicality seen in mixed martial arts training.

Founded by mixed martial arts and wrestling competitors, Team Quest Martial Arts & Fitness bolsters the strength and discipline essential to self-defense and general fitness with varied classes for groups of 7–15 students. In a safely padded, kangaroo-free environment, aspiring kickboxers will learn blocks, kicks, and punches drawn from boxing, kickboxing, and muay thai while building core strength. Submission wrestling cast students down on the mat to grapple with the traditional holds and escapes of Greco-Roman, collegiate, and thumb-wrestling styles. Fit classes eschew combat in favor of a varied, fast-paced circuit-training regimen, combining strength exercises and cardiovascular exertion into a total-body workout designed to drain sweat glands.
Classes for kids develop both character and technique in junior martial artists, teaching them how to work well with others and karate-chop cement blocks as humanely as possible. Throughout their month of martial artistry, kids may tuck moves from karate, kickboxing, boxing, wrestling, and jiu-jitsu under their belts.
