A Sparring class?

March 29th, 2021

What? Sparring? In the time of the Corona? Yes. You even get to actually make contact.

Here’s the deal: You’ve got to be vaccinated or you’ve got to bring a partner that you’re podded with. And, on top of all that, you still have to wear a mask.

Actual contact. Light contact, of course, but still, wow. Bring a mouthpiece and your own sparring gear. If you don’t have your own gear, let us know ahead of time and we can bring some for you to borrow. Classes are 6:00pm-6:45pm on Tuesdays. Join Dug and the crew. Ages 13+. Sign up here.

May Martial Arts Deal

March 8th, 2021

Bargain? Yes!

If you are 13 or older and interested in our martial arts program, we have an amazing special going on. You pay us $10 and you can train as much as you want in  May! That means you’re paying $10 for an entire month of training, which would normally cost you $100. As I said, bargain.

This offer is only good for new students, and is only applicable for our adult martial arts program.

Even More Martial Arts Classes

February 15th, 2021

Jaydra choking Lara... with good structure, of course.Hey peeps! We’ve got two new classes on the menu. One has been online for a long time and is coming back to the physical world this Friday: Jaydra’s internal martial arts class. If you are a martial artist, you know that structure is everything. You also know that it is hard to do the kind of fundamental drills that you should be doing to work on structure. Jaydra’s class will provide you a space to work those drills that will improve your understanding of structure and it will also probably be super fun and challenging. It happens every Friday at 10am, over at the Sunset gym.

The other new class is another striking class but with a different coach. If you’re part of the Mo Duk Pai community, you probably already know Sifu Jeremy. If you aren’t a MDP student, don’t worry – he’s awesome at teaching folks to punch and kick with increasingly amazing levels of skill. His class happens Mondays at 6pm at the Sunset gym.

You could do both of these classes! Learn the fundamental structure you need for all your martial arts endeavors, and then apply that structure by walloping some pads.

Confused by our massive array of classes? Don’t worry. We have thoughtfully put them all on our schedule page.

New Class!

January 7th, 2021

We’re happy to announce that we are adding more internal martial arts to our schedule! In addition to our Friday online internal martial arts class, we are adding in a Taiji class.

Classes will be held outdoors, in the Rieke playground area, on Mondays and Wednesdays from 11am – Noon. All levels of experience are welcome! As with all our programs, the first week is free for new students.

Check here for more info about the class content and the instructor.

More Outdoor, Less Online.

December 31st, 2020

Attendance matters. People aren’t really using the online classes much, and folks are showing up to the outdoor classes. The solution seems obvious! More outdoor classes and less online classes.

All are welcome! If you’ve never done a class with us, just show up ready to train – rain or shine.
