In martial arts, as in traditional painting, the best way to prove your work superior to your rival's is to kick him in the face. Perfect your art with today's Groupon: for $10, new students get two classes in either Capoeira, Wing Tsun, Kemscrima-Doh, Argentinean tango, or blues dance at Aceituno Arts, located in the Mission (a $24 value).
Aceituno Arts, a martial arts, dance, and music collective, invites neophytes and enthusiasts of all types to practice forms rich in tradition and full of health benefits. A Capoeira class will appeal to those sick of spinning in violent circles by themselves; enthusiastic instructors introduce newcomers to the myriad joys and traditions of the sport, which blends fighting, dancing, and music into an acrobatic martial smoothie. Wing Tsun Kung Fu, a pragmatic style of self-defense that exploits opponents' position and momentum, shows students how to turn the tables on any table-wielding opponents. Kemscrima-Doh teachings fuse armed and unarmed Chinese, Filipino, and Indonesian techniques in one unending slow-motion sequence. Or cut a proverbial rug with Argentinean tango or blues dance classes. Consult Aceituno Arts' schedule for dates; class length ranges from one to two hours. Biodanza and Tony Danza classes are not included in this Groupon.
Eight Yelpers give Aceituno Arts a perfect five-star rating:
- The instructors and regular students are very friendly, the atmosphere is very relaxed…and they usually split the class into beginners/experienced students after warming up, to accomodate [sic] beginners like myself. I highly recommend it for anyone looking to challenge themselves [sic]. – Matt C.
