Apparently, everybody is Kung-Fu fighting. But I don't know martial arts. Can Vimbly help me find NYC talent to teach me?

Whether you're looking to learn self-defense or exploring a new workout, martial arts kicks you into shape. With so many forms and studios around New York, how do you plan on booking a class? You can Google, Yelp, and scream for help. Vimbly has your solution.

Instead of comparing studios and times, Vimbly does it for you. In a matter of minutes, you're able to book a Kung-Fu class -- or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or Tae Kwon Do. Do it before work and take the class after work, eliminating the hassle of enough research to make it feel like a term paper -- unless you love term papers, of course.

We only include classes we love... classes that'll have you kicking and screaming -- hopefully not screaming in this case -- with some of the best, most affordable instruction in New York. You'll be a martial artist in no time!
