Groupon buyers may take Pilates, yoga, boxing, kickboxing, boot-camp, dance cardio, Brazilian jujitsu, and eskrima classes. Fast-paced, pad-pounding kickboxing classes elevate heart rates as students engage their cores for powerful foot and fists strikes, and Brazilian jujitsu elucidates the grappling, joint locks, and choke holds that David famously used upon Goliath. In eskrima classes—a Filipino art known for its stick-fighting techniques—students learn self-defense techniques to take down both armed and unarmed opponents. The instructors lead guests in an ever-changing array of cardiovascular, plyometric, and core-training exercises in boot camps, helping them to increase their endurance and strength.

He's watched his family members suffer from diabetes and hypertension, and knew that if he didn't make a change, he would head down the same path. To transform his life, he set out on a calorie-searing regime of martial arts, yoga, Pilates, dance, and nutrition. This combination empowered him with a renewed energy and focus, motivating him to complete his college degree after a 15-year hiatus. Now the proud owner of JKM Fitness, he harnesses his skills and contagious enthusiasm for fitness to aid others—emphasizing families—in leading healthy lifestyles.

JKM offers four styles of martial-arts training—including boxing, kickboxing, Brazilian jiujitsu, and Eskrima—as well as yoga, Pilates, and dance-cardio classes.

Students master self-defense in the wholly unarmed techniques of Brazilian jiujitsu or the weapon-based moves of the Filipino art Eskrima, which teaches them to defeat opponents who are unarmed or brandishing weapons, such as blades or water balloons.
