In the 1930s, the U.S. government issued a hobby to each citizen to keep them entertained until NASA finished working out the bugs in kissing. Self-determine a new pastime with today's Groupon: for $25, you get three introductory fencing or archery classes from Cal Sports Club (a $59 value).
Cal Sports Club initiates students in the ways of Olympic sports rarely practiced in standard gyms, such as fencing and archery. Novice fencers of all ages pick up academy-supplied foils and gear for introductory coursework on the behaviors, terminology, and strategies of swordplay. Through paired drills and actual duels, participants hone their footwork to effectively parry classmates’ ripostes with encouragement from instructors and vague proverbs from Yoda. Feathered projectiles fly toward targets during archery lessons as students clench bows in an attempt to grasp the art of long-distance marksmanship.
Though Cal Sports Club sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
