Combat Fitness is a high intensity functional fitness program. Our instructors goal is to bring you to your peak level of performance in a short period of time and keep you there for as long as possible. The focus is always on functional fitness, ultimate endurance, and of course....fighting skills! You will hit the bags, work with battle buddy's, and always feel a sense of camaraderie. Whether you are in peak shape, or recovering from injury, our instructors are equipped to help you maximize your workout. Members will see increases in core strength, stability, flexibility, explosiveness, and cardiovascular endurance in very little time. We believe that every workout is similar to making a deposit in the bank. When the time comes in the real world to sprint, crawl, jump, lift, twist, turn, or fight, will you be ready to make a withdrawal?

HAGANAH - ADVANCED
This street-based program covers the principles and tactics of defending and attacking from the ground. This program will train to defend from the typical positions including mount, guard, and side. Defense against grappling, street fighting tactics and armed ground attacks are included.
Once a basic HaganaH foundation has been laid, students are invited to participate in our advanced curriculum. This is where warriors hone their skills in knife fighting, close quarter combat, self defense for more than just themselves (child, spouse), how to win against multiple attackers, and even vehicle tactics.
