May 2013 Class Schedule

Class Schedule

Two brand new evening classes starting in May! Both classes are a great workout and fun!

Our Self-Defense & Combatives classes will provide members with top quality instruction in a wide variety of subjects. This beginner friendly & new class will feature our Women's Personal Protection curriculum as well as Jiu-Jitsu Combatives (the base of US Army Combatives).  You will recieve  instruction from experts in a wide variety of subjects. The various classes that make up the Smash Gyms Self Defense System will not only develop a student's skills, but also help them get into great shape.  Due to the fact that each class addresses a specific and different aspect of self-defense, the workouts are fun, interesting, and challenge the body. These classes will make anyone aware, ferocious, ready and in shape to defend themselves in any situation.

Due to popular demand we have also added evening Mixed Martial Arts Classes! This program is truly a mix of martial arts and does not necessarily refer to the sport of MMA. Each subject at Smash is covered by expert in his field so this class is an amazing compliment to our Self-Defense and Combatives class. The Smash Gyms MMA program includes a systematic blend of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, Wrestling, Judo, Kickboxing & Self-Defense techniques into a comprehensive weekly training program that will safely progress beginners at an accelerated pace. Our classes are designed as a path for the average person to progress safely and quickly into a well-rounded and fit martial artist. Our programs have proven to be highly effective in Self-Defense, Kickboxing, MMA, and Brazilian Jiu-jitsu sport competition. These uniquely structured classes are presented in a format highly conducive to learning while maintaining a strong focus on safety.

If you really want to learn any subject you need to see an authority on the matter. No single fighting style has true expertise in every situation or subject matter. Anyone that has studied martial arts or fighting knows this is true. If you look at the best professional martial artist and fighters in the world they have sought out experts in each subject. They have separate expert coaches from each discipline.  We used this principle to create our Mixed Martial Arts and Self Defense & Combatives programs. Every class subject will be taught by an expert for the highest possible level of instruction. In both classes gaining actual fighting ability is of primary concern while maintaining a strong focus on fun, fitness and safety!

Below is a link to the new Smash schedule for September 2012. Starting September 10th we've added a new 4:30 SmashFit time slot so that busy parents can workout while their kids train. Morning, Noon and Evening classes available.

 

 

We often hear from our members that since they've joined Smash they actually look forward to going to the gym. This unique experience is the result of an amazing staff of instructors and the supportive members. Our classes deliver a fitness experience that allows you to actually learn something in a fun group format as you workout. Learning a new skill as you get in shape helps members to stay consistent and interested. The comprehensive schedule allows you to do a new workout every day to keep it interesting!

Smash Gyms has a versatile and unique member base. Located in Silicon Valley between Santa Clara and Sunnyvale we have a constant influx of new members from diverse backgrounds. Because Smash offers corporate memberships for Silicon Valley start ups, many of our members are new to the area and have used Smash Gyms group fitness classes to meet new friends. Our friendly staff and members are very active in the local community. Every night at Smash is like a social fitness event! Our classes are interactive  in which you will often be paired or matched up with partners. This group format allows for a supportive environment that will help you reach your fitness goals, provide networking opportunities and meet great people with similar goals.

Our comprehensive schedule includes zumba, ujam, bootcamp, kettlebell, strength & conditioning, personal training, jiu-jitsu, krav maga, kickboxing, yoga, kids wrestling and martial arts and more. Every class is taught by a true expert in their field. Crossfit certified instructors, 3rd Degree BJJ Black Belts, Krav Maga experts from Israel, experienced personal trainers just to name a few. The goal of our instructors is to run classes in which participants will have fun, get a great workout in addition to transferring their expert knowledge to our members. You will not get lost in the crowd at Smash. Each instructor pays close attention to the progress of those in their class. Every class is like a personal training session.
