Martial artists wear colorful belts to indicate their mastery of fighting techniques and their passionate disdain for suspenders. Achieve stylish self-defense strategies with today's Groupon: for $30, you get five martial-arts or boot-camp classes at Body Impact Martial Arts, located inside Body Impact Training in Highland Park (a $100 value).
Accredited by the North American Grappling Association and cofounded by a former U.S. Army Ranger, Body Impact Martial Arts molds students into skilled athletes with fighting disciplines including jujitsu, muay thai, and krav maga. High-intensity training sessions integrate martial strikes with body-weight exercises, plyometrics, and pre-spar trash-talk sessions with overconfident shadows, and boot camps emphasize cardio fitness through rigorous interval training and kickboxing. Weight-resistance equipment and heavy bags festoon the practice area, inviting challengers to dance with their dangling promises of unwinnable pummelings. Trainers Josh Passini and Dr. Angel Santiago bolster students’ bodies and confidence with certification from the National Sports Conditioning Association, National Academy of Sports Medicine, and National Audubon Society.
