Looking to try your hand at martial arts? A new gym is here to help. Called California Martial Athletics, the fresh arrival is located at 1120 Polk St. in Lower Nob Hill.

California Martial Athletics offers boxing and Muay Thai classes for students of all levels, including kids Muay Thai for children as young as 5. Classes are available a la carte for $25 per session or as part of prepaid monthly membership packages ($140–$1,320).

The fresh arrival has received an enthusiastic response thus far, with a five-star rating out of seven reviews on Yelp.

Maree C., one  the first Yelpers to review the new spot on Dec. 6, wrote, "These are your guys if you're thinking about getting started in Muay Thai or if you've got experience and want more advanced training."

Yelper Maxwell T. added, “I don't personally have much patience with rigid, hierarchical, superior attitudes when it comes to teacher-student relationships, and I've never gotten that vibe from [instructors] Dave or Joe. They push you without being jerks about it, and they're fun to interact with as people, as well as instructors."

Interested? California Martial Athletics is open Monday–Saturday. Check its website for a full schedule and to book a class.
