Aside from climbing out of rattlesnake-infested quicksand or posing for rattlesnake-infested watercolor portraits, few activities combine the focus and physicality seen in martial-arts training. Exercise body and mind with today's Groupon: for $45, you get nine weeks of martial-arts classes (a $100 value) and a uniform (a $35 value) at ATA Blackbelt Life Skills Center in Andover (a $135 total value).
The ATA Blackbelt Life Skills Center buffs bodies and bolsters confidence with holistic fighting and defense classes centered on the ancient art of tae kwon do. Over the course of the nine-week program, students will learn Songahm tae kwon do, self-defense, and how to deal with verbally abusive squirrels. Advanced classes teach sparring and proper weapon use, and a leadership program develops the skills needed to manage a group effectively. An experienced, safety-minded, and mostly uninvisible staff of instructors guides fighters through each group class, promoting perseverance and confidence and teaching awareness skills. The included uniform gives force wielders the appropriate garb for their newfound skill set and Jedi-themed tea parties.
