On a cold winter morning I braved the elements to try my first kick boxing class. My prayer was to make it through the class without embarrassing myself or needing paramedics. SUCCESS. I not only survived, but was met by a warm, friendly and patient crew that very professionally guided and assured me that my flailing limbs were not hilarious. Afterwards, instructors and students hung out on the mats joking and laughing in what was definitely a well-established community vibe. Definitely will go back and you should try it.
