High Intensity Conditioning Classes – Fast Burn 30

Fast Burn 30 Kettlebells

Burn Fat, Lose Weight & Get into the Best Shape of Your Life with “Fast Burn 30” – High Intensity Interval Training

Fast Burn 30 is an effective scientifically proven method for burning fat, developing muscle tone and improving athletic performance – Fast!

orange_registernow

Only $8 per Class

Schedule

Mondays and Wednesdays 4:30-5 pm (Group A) & 5-5:30 pm (Group B), Tuesday & Thursday mornings 11-11:45 am  (Group C) and Saturdays 1-1:45 pm (Groups A, B & C).

Space is limited to 6 participants per Group on Mondays and Wednesdays. Pay per class by clicking the “Register Now” link above.

What is Fast Burn 30?

Fast Burn 30 uses an exercise methodology known as High Intensity Interval Training which utilizes short and intense workouts in order to burn fat. HIIT sessions can vary from 9–30 minutes and is considered to be an excellent way to maximize a workout that is limited on time.

Several scientific studies have shown that High Intensity Short Workouts can have the same if not better results than traditional aerobic type exercises (e.g. Treadmill, Jogging, Bicycling etc.) in much less time. Long aerobic type workouts have traditionally been recognized as being the best method to reduce fat. HIIT is somewhat counterintuitive in this regard, but has nonetheless been shown to burn fat more effectively. One theory suggests that HIIT may boost your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) which is a measure of how fast your body metabolizes food or fuel sources (like glycogen & fat into energy. Obviously the higher your BMR the faster you will lose fat (you will become and best of all, your BMR remains high even between workout sessions.

Learn Capoeira at Baltimore Martial Arts Academy

Capoeira Classes in Baltimore

Capoeira classes for Children and Adults are now offered at Baltimore Martial Arts in Catonsville, Maryland.

FREE 30 Day Trial…. No Obligations…
Call 410-465-7799 to Schedule

Capoeira Schedule:

  • Copoeira Children’s Classes – Tuesdays & Thursdays 5-6PM – First class begins October 27th, 2015

  • Capoeira Adult Classes – Tuesdays & Thursdays 6-7:30PM

 

Capoeira is the Afro-Brazilian martial art that takes its roots during the colonial era of Brazil. Capoeira combines music, dance, acrobatics, play and martial elements into a dynamic ritual fight. The details of capoeira’s origins and early history are still a matter of debate among historians, but it is clear that African slaves played a crucial role in the development of the art form. Capoeira differs from other Martial Arts because of the strong African and Brazilian components: the rhythm of the music, the call and response of the songs, and the Ginga, the mobile guard of Capoeira that resembles dance steps. Capoeira is a delightful sight, fun, relaxing, and empowering.

Check out this cool video of what Capoeira looks like:

Capoeira is an energetic, the game or dance, played in a circle with musical accompaniment, in which two players try to take each other down, or otherwise dominate each other, whilst showing a mastery of movement. The players evade touching any part of the body to the ground excluding the hands, feet, and head. Becoming skilled demands long-term training. Full involvement requires learning how to play instruments, as well as learning the necessary movement skills.

Capoeira for Children

Family/Kids Class- Ages 5 to 11

Capoeira1Capoeira is a community where all would be welcome…a place where I could raise my children and prepare them for life. A family.

Julio Cesar BJJ Seminar at Groundgame

GFT BJJ Elkridge Learn Secret BJJ Techniques from a Non-Gracie Master

Master to Denilson Pimenta, Rodolfo Vierra & others…

Julio Cesar, 6th Degree BJJ Black Belt & founder of the prestigious Ground Fight Team GFT of Brazil. Master Julio will be conducting a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Seminar at GROUNDGAME in Elkridge, Maryland on Thursday May 21st from 6:30-8:30PM.

DiscountED ONLINE REGISTRATION price $50

Most practitioners of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu are unaware that there are other lineages of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu besides the Gracies. The founder of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu,  Mitsuyo Maeda, had TWO disciples – Carlos Gracie and Luiz França.

One of Franca’s students was a man named Oswaldo Fadda. Despite being labeled an outcast by the Gracie family, Fadda opened his own academy on the outskirts of Rio on January 27, 1950.

Fadda and his students specialized in foot locks and a year later he issued a challenge to the Gracies in the media. Hellio Gracie and his students accepted the challenge and lost badly! Fadda was the first man to ever have beaten Helio Gracie yet few people know this information.

Fadda’s linaege continues today in schools like Ground Fight Team, Nova União, Deo Jiu-Jitsu (Deoclecio Paulo) and Equipe Mestre Wilson Jiu-Jitsu (Wilson Pereira Mattos).

New Movie Pairs Ronda Rousey with Pencak Silat Action Star, Iko Uwais

pencak silat baltimore

Shortly after Ronda Rousey’s spectacular victory over Cat Zingano, Peter Berg announced that he will be producing a film, called “Mile 22,” featuring Rousey and International Silat Superstar, Iko Uwais. In a March 2nd article, “Variety” quoted Berg as saying, “I am a huge fan of what Gareth (Evans) and Iko did on both ‘Raid’ films, and I’m very excited at the possibility of working with Ronda and Iko to create a film in the spirit of this new wave of combat cinema emerging from Indonesia.” The movie will feature Rousey as a CIA agent, who teams up with an Indonesian police officer to fight extreme government corruption.

pencak silat martial arts

The Indonesian fighting style of Pencak Silat lends itself well to the big screen. As a traditional martial art, it is known for exotic and graceful movements, but its vicious and diverse range of techniques, including a heavy emphasis on knife fighting, give it a strong combative element. Silat’s brutal elbow and knee attacks are reminiscent of other Southeast Asian styles, such as Muay Thai. It also includes a strong emphasis on takedowns and destructive joint locks. Perhaps Silat’s most unique and distinctive feature is its penchant for kicks and sweeps launched from a low crouching or kneeling position. These types of skills were on full display in the famous elevator scene in Uwais’ 2009 feature film, “Merantau.”

Rob McKay - Pencak Silat Instructor

Robert McKay – Pencak Silat Instructor at Baltimore Martial Arts

Already popular in many parts of Europe, Silat is still relatively rare in the U.S., but “Baltimore Martial Arts Academy” is fortunate to have a program, teaching the art of Pencak Silat Mande Muda. Please come join us to learn more about this exciting and fast-growing art.
