Excellent instruction from all the coaches. They are knowledgeable and patient, and always willing to walk you through the moves. I've been going to the kickboxing class for about 3 years and I've definitely gained muscles! The best part is that it's still just as fun and challenging as it was when I first started. Never gets old.

Absolute has made a huge impact on my family. Before joining, I was intimidated by kickboxing classes but after one class I realized my fear had no merit - the folks at Absolute are like family now. I am stronger, healthier, more confident and happier than I was before, and I have made some amazing friends. Even on those days I don't want to get off the couch, once I get to the studio my whole attitude is changed and I am pumped. Absolute is always adding new classes, new sessions, and holding events & contests for us to stay engaged. It's been over 4 years for me and it never gets old!

My two sons joined me over a year ago - one in Jiu Jitzu and one in kids class - and both have shown tremendous growth. Ms Ana and the kids class have brought out the best in my 1st grader, teaching him respect, determination and pride in accomplishments. We love Absolute!

My middle daughter has been enrolled a little over a month and she loves it. I just signed up her sister for kickboxing too! Great family atmosphere, and great structure for the kids!

Such a fantastic place! The people are so welcoming here, that they take the intimidation out of learning something new, especially as an adult learning - and they really care about teaching you and pushing you to be your best. Absolutely love coming here for classes, seeing everyone weekly, and learning Muay Thai!

Adult Self Defense

Most people will never be the victim of a violent crime. However, if and when an adversarial confrontation does arise preparedness can mean the difference between a safe outcome and a catastrophe. There are few better ways to protect yourself than through an education in martial arts. Here are just some of the many ways that martial arts training can serve to ensure that you are ready for anything. 

Martial Arts Prepare You Emotionally For a Confrontation

If you are caught off guard it’s not very likely that you will be able to defend yourself well. As the adrenaline starts to flow and your brain starts to panic the natural instinct is to freeze up, making you an easy target. 

The martial artist, however, is in an advantaged position in this regard. For one thing, they are trained with techniques that will allow them to keep their cool. Through breathing exercises and other techniques, they are able to avoid panic and focus instead on the situation at hand. 

Martial artists have also simulated physical confrontations many times before, both through the techniques that they learn and through their sparring matches. 

This preparedness gives the martial artist a critical edge in any physical confrontation. 

They are Also Physically Prepared

Of course, the martial artist also is also more physically prepared for physical confrontation than the average person. Thanks to their training the martial artist knows how to quickly react to and defend against assault, sharply increasing their likelihood of safely exiting the situation. 

The Martial Artist is Physically Fit

The martial artist is also more physically fit than the average American thanks to the regular vigorous practice sessions that they endure. Their heightened strength and physical endurance are both attributes that can help with self-defense and may make the martial artist less likely to be targeted by attackers in the first place.
