We offer martial arts instruction in Kung Fu, Tai Chi, and Mixed Martial Arts. MMA, also known as Mixed Martial Arts, is a combat sport that uses a wide variety of fighting techniques. At Far East Fitness, we teach various combat techniques, which use the eight points of the body. Our classes are taught by a professional fighter. All of our students have the option of competing in local competitions. Mixed Martial Arts is a great way to teach your kids self defense, while keeping them in a safe environment. It can also help them learn self control, discipline, and the concept that hard work reaps great rewards.
We are proud to be participating in the effort to support National Guard and Military Reserve families with the charity Our Military Kids. Our Military Kids provides tangible support to the children of deployed and severly injured National Guard and Military Reserve personnel with grants to organizations like ours.
Sifu Dominic Ruiz has been involved with martial arts in one form another for nearly as long as he remembers. He is never satisfied, always eager to learn more. Once he learns, he is always eager to teach what he knows to the willing. He has taught individuals from many walks of life, and is especially proud of the those who he has taught from every branch of the armed forces. He has also taught students that work for the Department of Homeland Security, the Salt Lake Police department, and other correctional institutions. His enthusiasm is catching, especially with kids who love to spend time with Sifu Ruiz.
