This is my new gym in Catalina, AZ and I'm really digging it. The workouts are different everyday which is a must for me. The coaches are attentive to form which is helpful. And coaches provide several options for scaling things down if you have an injury or whatnot. Very much enjoying Fealty Fitness!
I am certain this is the best place I have attended exercise classes i have been to. Save movements, very knowledgeable instructors, positive reinforcement and actually fun ! Cannot say enough good things about it. Which I had this in MN too.
First off, I have much experience with martial arts of various styles, the longest time with Tae Kwon Do which I have a long-standing black belt in. So I know my martial arts. This dojo is based on the different Schools of ninjutsu and focuses largely on self-awareness and effective self-defense. So basically if it doesn’t work, then it isn’t taught at this dojo. There is a difference between the adult classes and the children’s classes as with most martial arts schools, but this is more due to the fact that this school specializes in redirection of children with behavioral issues as well as guidance of children with ADHD. The instructors do their best to make sure the dojo is a safe learning environment but don’t except them to coddle your child: they teach real world techniques and self-defense. The main instructor was a DEA officer and knows what he is doing. In fact, he has a sister school for training gun handling and weaponry. The tests for ranking are run once per month to allow everyone a chance and there is constant teaching during the tests. Men wear black uniforms and women wear purple for the most part, but this is not an absolute: I wear black because I want to. A wide variety of weapons are taught as the student progresses and there are always learning activities. It is not a style for weight loss though... this is a style for effective self-self defense. The ages of students range from very young to very old. Health conditions are taken into account as well. Overall, I give it a 5 because I am interested in realistically defending myself and learning more weaponry.
