At Ultimate Martial Arts and Fitness, our classes do not focus on the competitive side of kickboxing, but rather we aim for the increased fitness and physique gains that kickboxing can provide. In all of our classes, our team will work hard to make sure you receive the lessons you need to improve your kickboxing knowledge and perfect your technique.

We utilize martial arts boxing and kicking movements, while striking actual pads. Your workout will include combinations of controlled punches and kicks carried out with the discipline and skills required for martial arts. Then we add in continually changing athletic drills designed to build strength and tone your muscles and this will turn up the intensity of your workout. Kickboxing routines are EASY, straight forward and lots of fun, all while listening to your favorite music! Many of our students say that in addition to the fitness aspect, this class helps them to feel more empowered, confident and able to defend themselves. This class is open to men or women at any experience level. Whether you are a beginner or advanced, we will teach you everything you need to know!

Whether you're looking to learn kickboxing as a way to lose weight or you just want some structure to your fitness workouts, Ultimate Martial Arts invites you check out our classes and personally meet our instructor.

Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Ages 5 - Adult

Whereas most martial arts focus on strikes, Gracie Brazilian jiu-jitsu is designed to give the person with the most developed technique the upper hand. Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu will give anyone the ability to overcome any attacker regardless of size and strength. Being armed with knowledge is what matters and our classes will teach you every detail that you need to know.

Students will learn positions, escapes, grabs, takedowns, falling, controls, and at the older ages, "tap-outs." Through demonstration, students learn a series of techniques. After thorough preparation, our students implement the new technique in a controlled and supervised session, where they have the opportunity to practice techniques against a resisting opponent, thereby increasing their proficiency in the sport with each class. Brazilian jiu-jitsu classes focus on learning both the essential mindset and impeccable techniques that make the discipline truly a force to be reckoned with.

The Studio

Students will enter the instructional area of the school, also called a studio or dojo, and may bow before stepping onto the mat. Students will line up in order of belt rank and bow to the instructor. The bow is a traditional sign of respect and signifies that they are ready to start learning.


All of our instructors are highly qualifies experts at what they do. They will both challenge and encourage the students, helping push them to achieve their goals.They will be willing to talk with you and your student if you have questions about class.

Warm Up

Classes always start with a warm up, which can include stretching, some light cardio and exercises that reinforce what the students are doing in class.


The instructor will lead the class through drills that the student will repeat to develop muscle memory and learn new skills. Later in class, students will use the skill they learned from the drill in a different context such as self defense, sparring or a game.


The class curriculum will ensure that students learn the fundamentals of martial arts. It will act as a guide in order to monitor and develop the necessary skills to prosper in the martial arts.


Students will once again line up and bow out to the instructor. Maintaining a respectful attitude throughout and after class is important in all martial arts.
