Recreational opportunities in Central Oregon are plentiful. That’s why many residents first came to Bend for a visit — then decided to stay.
People are often surprised to see there are several gyms in town. After all, why work out indoors when there are so many outdoor possibilities?
We can’t speak for all of the gyms in Bend, but here are some of the reasons folks tell us they come to our facility:
- Our owner, Jimmy Smith, is a seasoned martial artist and teacher
- We care about kids and have special classes for them
- We offer practical instruction in self-defense
- We aim for effectiveness, not for appearance
- We don’t use foreign language terms or mannerisms
- Our approach is towards whole-person health
- Our MMA, Fitness, and Self-Defense approaches are based on effectiveness — we employ techniques that work
