Mark Cuviello the owner of Fitness Rx has decades of fighting experience ranging from standup karate style to full grappling and street techniques. Becoming physically fit is crucial to success. Using Mark's training fight/ fitness techniques combined with our schools teaching and use of the gym/ studio, our student become well rounded athletes. Through the years we have learned that a child that is physically fit is more likely to excel at karate but also it prevents injuries.
