Samuari Workout & Self Defense
KoBu Power is not just a workout, it's an education that builds muscle mass, reduces fat, teaches self-defense and, most importantly, builds confidence."
KoBu Power - The workout that can save your life." (CBS Sunday Morning News, May 1,)
"The class is carefully choreographed and delivers a hard training session while teaching you self-defense skills."
It's really like three workouts in one: a strength-cardio-martial arts ballet - and at the same time you're learning moves you can actually use in self-defense."


Karate Box uses the martial arts knowledge from centuries of battle-tested techniques and presents them in an easy to learn, safe and fun environment. Karate Box uses music to enhance the training exercise of kicking and punching on bags to a tempo that helps everyone with their rhythm and balance
