Though beautiful, martial arts can be used to threaten people, just like the Mona Lisa, which could easily be broken over someone’s head. Handle this Groupon responsibly.

Classes are available for kids as young as 8. Kids’ training focuses on avoiding and escaping violence based on the LIVE program—Lessons In Violence Evasion—developed by studio instructors Dennis Mahoney and Theresa Murphy. Older students delve into techniques drawn from the modern Bujinkan and To-Shin Do schools, progressing from basic forms to advanced synthesis of different fighting styles. A uniform and one private lesson are included in both packages. Check out the schedule here.
Shinobi Martial Arts
Drawing on martial-arts techniques purportedly passed down from ancient Japanese ninjas, Shinobi Martial Arts imbues its pupils with self-defense skills and spiritual tools aimed toward self-improvement. The only accredited To-Shin Do school in New Hampshire, the studio follows the teachings of legendary black belt Stephen K. Hayes, who spent time in Japan studying under ninjutsu master Masaaki Hatsumi in the 1970s. This experience inspired him to create his own school that merged the ancient with the modern, much like proving string theory with an abacus. Shinobi’s teachers tailor their instruction to each practitioner, teaching versatile physical-combat techniques and effective violence-avoidance strategies.
