I started attending Tactical Kung Fu and Mixed Martial Arts because I had a friend who was a member, and I needed exercise. I wanted exercise that would be mentally stimulating, physical, and I was also looking for a sense of community to keep me honest about attending. I found all of these things at Tactical Kung Fu and Mixed Martial Arts. Talking to other friends who have done a lot of self defense training, the self defense training here is very good. My primary goals were fitness, and in the past three months (with diet) I have been able to reduce my weight 20 lbs attending the Cardio fitness class, and honestly most of the other classes because I have an unlimited membership and Im a single guy, so why not. I have noticed other benefits too. I have been able to develop my right arm greatly, muscularly, and with coordination. This is a big deal because Ive had a peripheral nerve injury in this arm since birth, but the low weight, high repetition training has allowed me to greatly benefit in my use of the arm over the past few months. (My background in work is Physical Therapy, so this stuff excites me.) I will say, Diet is a huge key to weight loss, but the exercise helped, and the discipline of showing up to the gym and doing the work greatly helps with other aspects of life as well. If you have goals in mental discipline, cardio pulmonary conditioning goals, fitness goals, or want to get a good work out without doing the same thing every day, this is a great place. It also has free weights and kettle bells in the back.
