New Years resolution? Been there. Done that. It was called August. In the fall when people are hibernating Nizal Khan joined our Muay Thai program at RCW. He just won our December contest for best attendance showing up for 24 classes in 20 days! Nizal has lost almost 20 lbs, he says his close fit better and more than anything he thanked us for creating a place he just loves to be at. Get started now folks, by March you could be crushing goals like my man here. #rcw #rivercitywarriors #muaythai #portland #kickboxing #fittofight #newyear #newyou (at River City Warriors)

Because of this you’ll find a higher degree of safety and community that most school’s can’t match. Classes for every skill level, with opportunities to better yourself every step of the way. Whether it’s working in class with partners, attending seminars with world class experts, or competition, you’ll find it at RCW.
Which path will you choose?
- Kali & JKD -Kali refers to the “bladed art” and features all manner of handheld weaponry. Under the Inosanto method students learn 12 key areas of blunt, sharp, and projectile tools. Dan Inosanto is our chief instructor who is the heir apparent to Jeet Kune Do, Bruce Lee’s art and philosophy. Tailored for MMA and street self defense, it has an unrivaled depth of efficacy that can’t be matched, it’s basically Krav Maga on steroids!
- Gracie Jiu Jitsu - Pinoeered by Helio Gracie and made famous by his sons who conquered the world in both Vale Tudo (no rules) and the UFC. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has taken the world by storm. Because it uses principles of leverage and skeletal positioning it’s indispensable for anyone of any size, shape and age. It’s a great work out that teaches you how to neutralize any opponent on the ground.
- Muay Thai -Known as the art of 8 limbs because of the use of knees and elbows, Muay Thai is more than a kickboxing sport. It’s the national past time of Thailand and rich in culture. It is also a military art and rapidly puts together devastating combinations from Boxing, Kickboxing, and clinch work. A Muay Thai class will get you in shape, fast! In a typical hour we usually burn 800-1000 calories.
