Aside from climbing out of rattlesnake-infested quicksand or posing for rattlesnake-infested watercolor portraits, few activities combine the focus and physicality seen in tae kwon do training. Defend yourself against threats of every kind with today's Groupon: for $49, you get one month of classes and a uniform at Colorado Taekwondo Institute (a $129 value). Choose from locations in Lakewood, Littleton, Westminster, Golden, and Conifer.
Colorado Taekwondo Institute's experienced instructors conduct martial artists of all skill levels and ages through the challenging, self-discipline-testing moves of tae kwon do. Suit up in the included full uniform to comfortably and fashionably tackle human opponents and armies of wooden planks during age-appropriate classes. The quest for spiritual and chiseled muscle fulfillment begins with a private one-on-one session, with the institute’s punch-and-kick connoisseurs giving personalized attention to each fresh-faced fist. While the schedule varies among campuses, classes are offered five days a week, with afternoon and evening classes available. Students may attend two to three classes per week.
Budding warriors from ages 2 to 5 can hone listening and concentration techniques in half-hour Tiger classes as they develop motor skills such as hand-eye coordination, balance, and noiseless pouncing. Each class concludes with a lesson on self-control, teaching dangerous digits to restrain themselves in tense situations. Youth with 5 to 12 years under their soon-to-be black belts can fine-tune study skills, learn respect for themselves and others, and practice levitating nunchucks with their minds, while adults ages 13 and up can tone muscles while setting free pent-up stress monsters. All teachings include self-defense methods, calorie-burning exercise, and self-defense against calorie-burning pyromaniacs.
