The U.S. Elite Martial Arts & Fitness Center offers students of all ages and experience levels a varied schedule of classes, offering the opportunity to learn invaluable self-defense techniques while keeping fit. For novice and expert box kickers alike, kickboxing classes combine the music and energy of an aerobics workout with the kicks, punches, and soul-shaking yelps of martial arts. During the adults-only classes, instructors will guide students as they potentially burn hundreds of calories per hour and tone their bodies without ever having to unleash the barrage of feet and fists on each other or groups of cloak-and-dagger-wielding pastry chefs. No Gi Brazillian Jiu Jitsu classes are available, teaching a variety of immobilizing holds and joint manipulations designed for the besting of larger opponents such as bullies, goliaths, and truckasauruses.
For preschool kids (ages 3.5–5), the Little Ninjas classes implement a detailed curriculum to help kids improve their listening and motor skills—preparing them for school or life as motorboat-driving assassins. Along with passing an extensive selection process, the U.S. Elite Martial Arts & Fitness Center's instructors are required to participate in ongoing training to ensure top-notch teaching and thorough student protection.

About U.S. Elite Martial Arts Center
Any martial-arts education involves hard knocks and tough falls, but U.S. Elite Martial Arts & Fitness Center cushions the blows with its 4,000 square feet of matted floors. Atop them, trainees exchange blows in boxing and muay thai kickboxing classes. Brazilian jujitsu, wrestling, and judo fighters perform takedowns as elegant as they are brutal, following up with holds and joint locks that immobilize an opponent’s body. The center also trains children in self-defense, tying their lessons into school to raise grades and impart nonviolent antibullying techniques, such as calling a playground summit.
