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!

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!

Self Defense Classes in St. Louis

Martial arts is nothing if not a means of self-defense. The discipline, the physical fitness and the command of both body and spirit aggregate into a well-rounded person with the ability to defend themselves in the event of a physical confrontation.

Here are several ways that martial arts students will be able to defend themselves when bad situations arise. 

Role Playing

Much of what the martial artist works on are responses to tense situations. Martial arts forms and maneuvers are orchestrated with the intention of equipping the user with what they need to respond appropriately to adversity. 

The worst thing that can happen in the event of a physically threatening situation is to be caught off guard. To this end, the student of martial arts is likely safe, as they will enter into these situations emotionally and intellectually prepared for what is to come. 

Advanced Self Defense Techniques

Of course, the martial artist is naturally equipped with the know how to physically defend themselves. The moves and techniques that are practiced in martial arts will give the martial artist the tools they need to successfully defend themselves in the event of a confrontation.

Clarity of Thought

When the adrenaline starts to flow, the average mind experiences sensory overload as panic begins to set in. When a person is overcome with fear, they won’t be thinking straight. When they aren’t thinking straight, they aren’t well suited for a self-defense scenario. 

In addition to being mentally and physically prepared for a confrontation, martial artists are also able to maintain a calm demeanor during troublesome encounters. Their ability to keep a clear head during a confrontation may enable them to reach a peaceful conclusion. When that’s not possible it will drastically increase the martial artist’s chances of successfully defending themselves.
