  • Go2Karate
    After beginning martial arts in 1980, two karate students earned seventh-degree black belts and eventually went on to become masters and open their own schools. They wanted to share their love of karate and other martial arts with even more people, so in 2011, they created Go2Karate.com. Go2Karate is a website that connects people around the world with martial arts schools in their communities. It also helps users learn about the various styles of martial arts?teaching them the differences between karate, Brazilian jujitsu, capoeira, and mixed martial arts, for instance?as well as helps them find a class based on their individual goals. On the easy-to-use website, parents can find a karate school to successfully teach their child self-confidence and respect. Kids' karate classes acquaint students with others their own age, and also build skills that help them deal with schoolyard bullies. For women, karate and other martial arts do double duty as a fun and confidence-building fitness regime while also equipping them with essential self-defense moves. Karate and martial-arts classes for men help them not only hone fighting technique, but also reduce stress and drop pounds while chiseling stronger bodies. Users simply enter their location information and the style of martial arts they're interested in, and the website shows them a bounty of schools conveniently located nearby, many with a class schedule and news about recent events.

    Established: 2011 Staff Size: 2?10 people Parking: Parking lot Reservations/Appointments: Recommended Most popular offering: Jin Jung Kwan Hapkido, Self-Defense Pro Tip: Teaching self-defense in a traditional martial-arts environment. Good for Kids: Yes Walk-ins Welcome: Yes While some traditional martial-art schools merely practice patterns or breaking boards, the teachers at Hapkido-USA Springfield LLC buck that trend, focusing purely on the art of self defense in a disciplined, traditional martial-arts environment. "We teach...elements of boxing, kickboxing, ground defense, joint locks, throwing and pinning techniques," says the owner. Making sure that burgeoning martial artists learned such useful techniques is the very thing that drew him to teaching in the first place, and it remains his favorite part of his job. "[I like] watching students grow in their knowledge and confidence," he says. "In hapkido, people get the increase in self-confidence with a realistic expectation of their self-defense skills."

  • Springfield Fight Club
    Springfield Fight Club owners Gabe Wouk and Brett Welcome are well versed in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Gabe holds a black belt in the discipline while Brett holds a brown belt, so it's no surprise their gym offers plenty of classes in that particular discipline. But, perhaps because Brazilian jiu-jitsu earned its reputation as a superior grappling form in the MMA octagon, the gym also complements its jiu-jitsu classes with training in a variety of striking arts. Students may practice elements of boxing, kickboxing, and muay thai to prepare them for the cage.
