Along with the confidence that comes from learning a martial art, you will leave soaked in sweat, exhausted and with a smile on your face.

  • Enduro Spin

    Winter is here, and it’s getting harder to cycle distance outdoors – so take your long rides into our spin room and have a great workout focused on endurance and aerobic capacity. What does that mean? It means a lot of great music, a lot of friends, and a lot of opportunities to work on your spin game. This class is not about high intensity; it’s about low to moderate heat to build on your capacity to go the distance.

  • Fight Like Mulan (Women’s Only)

    Let’s get down to business, based in traditional kung fu, this women’s martial art class will teach you how to defend yourself, others, or the whole of China. Improve your strength and stamina while learning how to strike effectively, block and throw your enemies empty-handed and with weapons. That’s right; you get to learn sword (and staff) fighting. So if your goal is to defeat the Huns or to get fit and have fun, this is the martial arts class for you.

  • Intermediate Dynamic Kickboxing (Women’s Only)

    Learn to fight with dynamic art, combining traditional Shaolin Kung Fu and modern Kick Boxing. Reap the benefits of an excellent cardio workout with self-defence techniques using the legs, knees, elbows, and boxing. Increase your aerobic capacity and improve strength, agility and speed while developing an impenetrable defence and a devastating offence in a fun and engaging atmosphere.

  • MMA

    Our Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) class incorporates many types of combat sports, including boxing, wrestling, judo, Jiu-Jitsu, Karate, Muay Thai Kickboxing and other disciplines. If you want to improve your confidence, get a good workout and learn how to defend yourself using many different tactics, you’ll want to sign up for this class before it sells out.

  • Salsa and Bachata Fundamentals

    Looking to make friends, have fun, and learn a new social skill? We will be taking on two of the most popular forms of Latin dancing – salsa and bachata, over 12 weeks. There will also be many opportunities to check out some of the local social dance events throughout the course! Complete beginners welcome, no partners required! Come and prepare to have a blast!

  • Tai Chi

    Experience meditation in motion. Tai Chi is a low-impact, slow-motion exercise through a series of actions, including animal movements and martial arts movements. Tai Chi is different from other activities because motions are usually circular and never forced, which relaxes the muscles instead of tensing them – joints are not fully extended or bent and connective tissues are not stretched. You could call Tai Chi “medication in motion.”
