Haymaker is an anti-racist and anti-sexist gym that provides self-defense, martial arts, and fitness classes. Our gym is completely based on volunteer participation and all of our classes are free.
We strive to be an anti-oppressive and anti-fascist gym, which means that:
We condemn martial arts training for state violence (police officers, active duty military, ICE agents, etc).
We respect our training partners by not using any bigoted language or sexualizing them in the gym.
We also try to be communicative while were doing partner drills, i.e. ask your partner if they want more resistance, don’t just correct your partner’s technique, ask them if they want the correction.
