Aside from climbing out of rattlesnake-infested quicksand or posing for rattlesnake-infested watercolor portraits, few activities combine the focus and physicality seen in karate. Kick-start your kicking concentration with today's Groupon: for $25, you get two one-hour adult self-protection program sessions at Competitive Edge Karate (a $60 value).
Led by highly experienced, eighth-degree-black-belt-holding instructor Kyoshi Roger Dabney, Competitive Edge Karate's adult self-protection program class teaches students the basics of traditional martial arts, combining standup and grappling methods to produce lean, mean, attacker-attacking machines. Discover how to effectively punch, elbow, kick, and knee multiple opponents with standup defense skills while also learning grappling techniques that can help you escape an attacker who's pinned you to the ground. Students are also taught how to use their minds as even more powerful weapons than fist rockets and leg torpedoes, harnessing the brain's natural crisis-solving and fear-crushing abilities.
