Our instructors are dedicated to helping you progress through the standardized belting system that is recognized world wide!

Our classes are co-ed so it can be fun for individuals looking to meet like-minded people interested in improving their health or for couples to add a fun new physical activity.  Following the strength and conditioning portion of the class we work in partners and use Focus Mitts, Thai Pads and Body Belts with scenario driven tasks.  As beginners so you do not need to worry about being hit or kicked – the way the training curriculum is designed – you will be the one doing all of the striking and kicking!  If you are tired of trendy classes or the gym and its long term contracts, you should join us for a free class!
