Signing up for martial arts classes is a great idea for everyone as this will not only help you get fit but also teach you how to defend yourself in case of an emergency. There are plenty of self-defense tools today, but your body is the only one you can rely on in any situation. Therefore, everyone should know how to use it to effectively disable an attacker. Training in any kind of martial arts will increase your strength and stamina and improve your general health greatly.
With martial arts classes you will be able to learn a great number of martial arts. The most popular classes are jiu jitsu, taekwondo, karate, boxing, kickboxing, wrestling, kung fu, capoeira, kendo, muai thai, and tai chi. Each of these martial arts has its specific strengths, so you’ll need to do a bit of research to decide which class suits you best. Consult a professional martial arts trainer and your doctor to make the right decision.
Bark can put you in touch with suppliers offering a variety of mixed martial arts classes and specialized self-defense courses. You can try these groups if you don’t want to focus on a single type of martial arts. Mixed classes are extremely versatile, so you’ll need to talk to each trainer individually to find out their approach.
Martial arts classes are great, but you can enhance your physical training by complementing them with other types of exercise. Bark can help you find swimming and yoga classes as well as personal trainers who can develop a personalized training and nutrition program that will allow you to achieve your fitness goals.

For me, it's about taking people on a journey. I see it all the time, you go too the gym or you get a personal trainer because you want the super star body and the super star Abs, and the super star arms. Maybe you get! Maybe you don't. But that's all you get. It's superficial, nothing else changes because your focused only on what you see.

What inspired you to start your own business?
I see to many big chain gyms and leisure centres offering people classes in some sort of 'boxercise body attack' type of thing. Where the instructors have no back ground in martial arts and no idea of what they are teaching or why they are teaching it. And then I see Mma or Thai Boxing style classes that have great instructors, but seem a bit intimidating to the average person. I want to provide a fitness class that is accessible to everyone who wants to train in this type of environment, where they can learn proper skills and how to use them, while getting a great work out.
