Times are tough all over and living in an ever increasing population like greater Miami can pose even more security concerns. Police can’t be everywhere all the time and some residents don’t trust the Police due to recent shootings. Because of this you need to be more personally responsible for you and your families safety.

 

We at Modern Martial Arts & Fitness completely understand this and can provide you with reality based self-defense and physical conditioning. Going to a spinning class or a gym may make you look better but will you also learn valuable skills that can save your life? Practicing a martial art does not make you a violent person but actually allows you to release stress, have fun while learning an actual skill.

Krav Maga is known for its focus on real-life situations, together with its extremely efficient and brutal counter-attacks. It has been used by many Special Forces and Police Departments throughout the world. You will also learn the use of modern weapons such as firearms and knife as well as common household items such as a broom, rolled up magazine and a walking stick.

 

Muay Thai Kickboxing: Muay Thai is a combat sport of Thailand that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques. This physical and mental discipline is known as "the art of eight limbs" because it is characterized by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees, shins, being associated with a good physical preparation that makes a full-contact fighter very efficient. It is the most widely used striking art for professional MMA fighters. In this class you will train just like a real fighter but without the risk of injury.
