Aside from climbing out of rattlesnake-infested quicksand or posing for rattlesnake-infested watercolor portraits, few activities combine the focus and physicality seen in kenpo training. Shape up sans snakes with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get eight weeks of kenpo classes and one student uniform at the American Institute of Kenpo (a $99 value). Today's deal is valid at the Broadway, East 22nd Street, and North La Cholla Boulevard locations. The American Institute of Kenpo offers an array of kenpo karate classes to students of all ages and experience levels. Kenpo is an American martial art that focuses on self-defense and fitness and helps build coordination, strength, and flexibility for undercover missions on the pretzel black market. The American Institute of Kenpo schools students from ages 4 to 6, 7 to 14, and 15 and up, with classes meeting for one hour twice a week. New students are introduced to the five ranges of combat, participate in monitored sparring time, and are given all of the materials needed to build a fortified foundation for their kenpo practice. With three locations and multiple classes to choose from, patrons can schedule sessions around their work or crime-fighting schedules.

American Institute of Kenpo

The rich history of kenpo karate stretches as far back as the second century AD, when the number two was invented and renowned surgeon Hua T’o devised defensive exercises based on animal poses. The Asian sport continued to evolve over the intervening years, and in the 20th century, Ed Parker imported kenpo to the states and became not only the senior grandmaster of American kenpo, but also the “father of American Kenpo.” Today, Ed Parker Jr. carries on his father’s legacy as a member of the Master Council that presides over American Institute of Kenpo, along with other kenpo greats such as ninth-degree black belt Sigung Stephen LaBounty. The team of experts offers a guiding presence at the institute—Ed drops in for yearly camps and senior black-belt testing—and ensures the internationally certified instructors teach kenpo karate with the utmost attention to the principles of the sport.

Though kenpo is derived from ancient techniques, it encompasses contemporary self-defense and fitness methods. In the first lesson, students power through all the basics—the five ranges of combat and how to move swiftly—and form a sturdy foundation for increased strength, coordination, and flexibility. The center offers a wide range of programs for all ages and ability levels so that new pupils can master kenpo quickly and ascend through the belt-oriented ranks toward black.
