Fit 2 Fight

Ever wonder what you would do if an attacker snuck up on you? Have you worried that you’d be too weak to hit back?

Learn a few moves that could save your life in these situations all while getting an incredible workout at our March “Fit 2 Fight To Have a Safe Life” workshop.

Since many of our students are women, we thought we’d take a departure from our usual focus on dance to present this important fitness for self-defense master class.

Developed by guest instructor Jillian Bullock, the Fighting Spirit Warriors® program helps women build the cardio conditioning and speed necessary to run away from a dangerous situation as well as the power and accuracy to fight back in a violent confrontation. Fighting Spirit Warriors® incorporates drills that work the whole body at once in order to tighten and tone muscles, especially the weakest areas for most women — arms, thighs, butt and core.

Join us for a 90-minutes on Sunday, March 24 to learn:

  • Conditioning and strengthening drills to build upper and lower body muscles, as well as stability in hips, ankles, joints and feet
  • Cardio exercises to lose weight and build endurance
  • Martial arts and boxing drills to develop quick reflexes, coordination and accuracy
  • Powerful ways to strike an attacker with your hands, knees, feet and elbows
  • Techniques to fight back when lying down in case of being thrown to the ground or attacked in bed.
  • Abdominal exercises that will allow you to take a hit to the stomach, if necessary, without buckling

And much more…
