COLORADO SPRINGS — Since the pandemic began fitness and martial arts centers have closed across the country, but one facility in Colorado Springs has found a way to rebound by "chopping" their class sizes in half!

The CFMAF martial arts center in the Springs, now offers a women's self-defense class that is gaining popularity. The Center offers 9 spots per class, everyone must wear a mask, and they conduct temperature checks at the door.

Owner and instructor, Isaac Costley and his wife Heather incorporates an online zoom class during the sessions, where there are unlimited spots.

"We've had people from Spain to places in South America tune into our classes," Costley explained.

The classes are offered throughout the week. The Costley's call their classes "streetwise" because they teach practical solutions that can be applied in real life scenarios.

"Our students can learn the techniques! I don't expect them to go out of here being over confident. Confidence comes from continued perfect practice," he said.
