The ability to block a punch, like the ability to roll doubles, becomes more and more valuable as a game of backgammon becomes more and more testy. Prepare for contentious contests with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a six-week session with unlimited fitness and self-defense classes, a uniform, and two private lessons at America’s Best Defense in Spencer (a $421.95 value).

Led by sensei Corey Buzzell, America’s Best Defense imparts the benefits of self-defense, exercise, and discipline to more than 2,000 students. Pupils age 3–70 learn self-defense techniques and burn calories in classes six days a week. In krav maga classes, adults master intuitive and practical self-defense maneuvers developed by the Israeli Defense Forces, allowing them to strut ninja-infested hallways with impunity. Adult limbs can also writhe to the self-defense rhythms of muay thai and jujitsu classes. Fight2Bfit blends muay thai kickboxing with aerobics to burn 900 calories an hour in a high-intensity workout that hits the whole body, rather than focusing on creating a single superstrong calf muscle.

Kids’ karate uses martial arts to teach little kickers discipline and self-confidence. Youngsters’ courses divide students by age, from Tiny Tigers (3–4), who learn to listen and concentrate while burning excess energy, to Karate Kids (8–12), whose lessons combine martial-arts training with an emphasis on values such as modesty and respect.

America's Best Defense

Alexandria Buzzell knows how tiring it can be to throw one punch or kick after another. She is a fourth-degree black belt and certified group-fitness instructor with 15 years of experience and Level 2 certification from the Krav Maga Alliance. At America's Best Defense, she and co-owner Corey Buzzell employ functional movements during Krav Maga, kickboxing, and kids’ martial-arts classes, each of which wraps fitness and self-defense exercises into an engaging, effective workout.
