"I am LOVING my experience at Minorsan. Ms. Clara, Robin, and Kira are really top notch and truly care about their jobs, they make you wanna work it!!

From Kickboxing, where I sweat so much and punch stress, sadness, and anger out, to BodyPump, where I'm learning so much and building beautiful strength and muscle, this studio is just great. Excellent for cross training... I feel myself getting better, faster, freer.

This diverse , caring, community of badass folks is a joy and I love it!!!" ~Chorel, Santa Cruz

FighterFit Fempowerment & Self Defense

"Live your life with confidence and fearlessness." Don't you wish it was easy? Nothing great has ever been easy. I mean, really.

So here's the deal: challenging yourself IS building confidence and fearlessness. See? Easy. You can do this because so many others have already done it. As it turns out, we aren't all that different from each other. Most humans thrive in the face of challenge.

You can get super-fit & healthy, learn some kick-butt combat skills, be able to defend yourself from 'the bad guys,' and keep your humble attitude, and live the life YOU want (not what somebody else thinks you should want). It feels awesome to stand up for yourself and speak your mind. I know because I did it too! And now I'm helping y'all to do the same.

Learn to cultivate #badasscourage, love your life, and your power in it. There is nothing else like women's self-defense training. Our women's classes are supportive in all ways, and you'll be respected.


Children's Self-Defense

Kids need to feel safe when up against a bully, or when confronted by a possible predator. Life is already challenging. enough for kids. Arm them with skills that will help them to make safer choices when they feel their safety is being compromised.

Confidence is only as strong as the human body says so. This training trains the body. If you didn't know this already, here it is—the body speaks louder than the mind.

Kids are no different. Give your kids the gift of a big breakthrough in this training that they just can't 'unlearn.' And why would you want them to unlearn it. It is so powerful and so positive. Workshops held throughout the year.

  • Convenient class times and options. Pick and choose  between our Live classes and our Virtual classes to fit your schedule. Our Virtual classes are a great added perk, and so is our Video Library of workouts!

  • Everyone wants peace of mind—especially Parents (and Aunts/Uncles/Grandparents). Peace of mind is that feeling that you know and trust all will be well and safe. Peace of mind develops when you learn to defend yourself, stand your ground and be heard, and/or feel confident that your children are less vulnerable. We got what ya need to fill this void.

  • We're all about helping you build power and confidence in your body. Feeling great about who you are in this world radiates confidence. You'll feel like a Super-Shero athlete without having to be one! 

  • Respect for you and children is number one (ok, maybe safety is number one...but respect is a very close second!). Honestly, we don't ever shame, ignore, or talk down to anyone. Even kids. Their emotions are more vulnerable than adults. We take really good care of kids in our workshops.

  • Diversity is a mainstay here. All we ask is that you treat others with kindness. Everyone here has similar goals. Acceptance of our individualism creates a great environment. Confidence to stand tall and defend yourself—to move like nobody’s watching, to strengthen your body, to start your weight loss, and to feel fantastic about who you are in this world, is everybody's right. We allow everyone to feel it in safety.
