Golden State Athletic Club Adult Kickboxing programs are focused on providing training for those interested in learning proper technique, tactics and systems used in professional kickboxing, Muay Thai and boxing. We provide classes for all skill and levels.
Mixed Martial Arts is the future of Martial Arts, as seen on the UFC and other fight promotions. You'll learn the most effective Martial Arts moves from each style of Martial Arts, and become far stronger and more knowledgeable than if you learned only one style.
Need a little extra help on some skills, or feel like you're not quite ready for group classes? We can help with dedicated private instruction tailored to exactly what you need. We'll help you hone your skills, but more importantly, we'll give you the confidence you've been looking for in your training!
There's nothing more satisfying than watching your 4-6 year old gain physical and social skills that you know will benefit them for life. Your little one will learn focus, self-confidence and discipline, while getting a full body work out. Little Ninjas teach fantastic martial arts moves plus vital interpersonal skills
Martial Arts is one of the best possible activities for children. They'll learn to defend themselves physically, but more importantly they'll build the mental and emotional skill sets necessary to conquer challenges like high school, college, and becoming a healthy, balanced adult.
Martial Arts is the perfect activity for teenagers! It gives them an outlet for their unique energy through engagement and gross motor skill activity, but at Golden State Athletic Club, they'll do it in a structured class designed and taught just for them.
Kids LOVE Parent's Night Out at Golden State Athletic Club just almost as much as parents do! It's the super fun alternative to finding a babysitter - no more stressing about how to get a night for yourself!
The best in San Rafael
Our programs were created for real family schedules. Convenient class times mean that kids, adults, and whole families can improve their quality of life without killing every moment of spare time.
Our positive atmosphere is contagious, and you'll know without a doubt that you're in a place where kids will learn positive habits and adults will make meaningful, lasting friendships.
All of our programs improve physical prowess, and that's important. But what's far more important is the mental and emotional benefits that our programs bring to everyday life.
Both kids and adults will gain flexibility, agility, and strength, even if they aren't athletic! They'll love it, because it's not only super fun, it’s inclusive and accommodating at every step.
San Rafael Kids agree:
Kids love classes at Golden State Athletic Club because they're unbelievably fun (but parents love them because they build benefits for life!)
Everything we do is intentionally structured based on our extensive experience. Kids at Golden State Athletic Club actually like the structure, because it makes them feel safe and cared for. They can trust deep down that they're safe to explore and challenge themselves.
We take kids’ emotions seriously. The culture at Golden State Athletic Club is one of inclusion - no cliques, no cool kids club, no unkind actions or attitudes. Kids love it because they always feel like they belong!
It's so much fun! At Golden State Athletic Club, we know that getting your child out of the house, in the car, and across town to an activity is a big deal. We guarantee that when they leave, it will have been 100% worth it, every time!
Programs built for real people
Our classes were designed specifically for the average person. You'll build skills step by step, without having to be a superstar to see improvement. But stick with it, and you'll see your abilities soar!
You'll will be surrounded by peers striving towards the same goals you are, day in, day out. You'll build friendships and be supported in your individual journey.
We've always known it, but now the science agrees: You must take time for your own mental health. Martial Arts helps you clear your mind, accomplish goals, and be more healthy, from the inside out.
It's more than just learning awesome looking moves - it's proprioception, balance, agility and more - physical skills that will remain with and benefit you for the rest of your life.
We send regular anonymous surveys to our members in our program. Here's a sample of the real feedback we get regularly:
I trained with David Schimmel for a decade, earning our 1st and 2nd degree blackbelts together, and I am excited for anyone that comes through his door; they're in good hands. He has a great knowledge and understanding of martial arts and is phenomenal at making sure his students get both.
Outstanding coaches - these guys live the way every day. Authentic, technical, kind hearted people. If you’re not training here, you’re missing out!
