Fighting Chance Seattle is a vibrant community martial arts dojo in Ballard. It is our mission to provide weekly classes and single-day workshops in a safe, unintimidating environment. Adults and teens learn modern kickboxing, old school karate, and realistic self-defense from an instructor with twenty years of experience.
Our students are techies, artists, scientists, gamers, writers, bartenders, desk jockeys, and nerds. They are good people from diverse backgrounds who sweat, fight, and laugh together. There is no Seattle freeze here, we love to introduce beginners to the martial arts.
“The (Self-Defense for Women) workshop gives you the confidence to do whatever it takes to protect yourself… This stuff could potentially save your life. “
“The environment is super friendly and supportive. I went by myself, not knowing anyone, and I feel completely comfortable. Coming here has helped with anxiety, depression and lack of confidence.”
“When gym memberships and attempts to work out at home failed, Kickboxing Ryoku gave me the structure, accountability and fun I need to achieve my health goals.”
“Jordan takes to heart seeing his students make progress. He always takes the time to break down the bio-mechanics of each technique as well as the contexts in which they would be relevant.”
