Obe Fitness and Disney Collaborate on Martial Arts Infused Workouts Inspired by “Raya and the Last Dragon”

Obe Fitness has partnered with Disney to bring some martial arts-infused workouts to subscribers, inspired by scenes in the upcoming Raya and the Last Dragon.

What’s Happening:

  • Ready to channel your inner warrior? Walt Disney Animation Studios' newest epic, Raya and the Last Dragon, is a hero’s journey to remember with #girlpower, inspiration, and life lessons to spare. And yes, there are fitness lessons as well.
  • The movie’s action sequences—in which the main character, Raya, is fighting to save humanity—are inspired by a number of martial arts traditions: Arnis, from the Philippines, Pencak Silat, from Indonesia and Malaysia, Muay Thai, from Thailand, and “a little bit of Vietnamese wrestling,” according to Qui Nguyen, Raya and the Last Dragon co-writer who is also credited with additional fight reference choreography.
  • Obe Fitness, a live and on-demand fitness class program, will be holding special Raya and the Last Dragon themed workout classes, taught by three of their instructors. The appeal of Raya’s quest is universal, and Obé instructors Dorian, Walter, and Spencer will be celebrating Raya and the Last Dragon, explaining what they’ll be teaching in early March. (The first class will launch on March 3rd, and the last will be on March 7th.)
