Urban Defense Center’s founder and Martial Arts Master Lawrence Whitaker, earner of four separate black belts, assembles parts borrowed from martial arts, aerobic exercise, and kickboxing to construct Tai-Fit classes. As they watch their reflections in the mirrored wall, students throw punches and thrust knees, burning calories, strengthening cardiac health, and developing the skills necessary to drop-kick buildings. Blocking and evasion moves borrowed from boxing and kickboxing build balance and coordination, while calisthenics, such as sit-ups and eyebrow lifts, target specific muscle groups. The class requires no additional equipment beyond workout clothing and gym shoes.

Urban Defense Center

Urban Defense Center founder Master Lawrence Whitaker developed his studio’s signature self-defense program to arm students with practical-minded moves that prepare them for dangerous street situations. Students learn to spar, take down an opponent, defend against weapons, and escape from the shadow of a suspicious-looking skyscraper. Students also train their gray matter, pre-empting potential legal repercussions for defending themselves by studying concepts such as reasonable grounds and probable cause. Alternatively, Tai-Fit sessions shuttle through a series of punches, knees, blocks, and kicks with the goal not of emulating a fight but of torching calories instead. Fighters can pursue either track with a personal trainer who pays closer attention to form and technique than a beauty contestant does during the Simon Says portion of the pageant.
