Kickboxers with a penchant for punishing bags have learned self-restraint when in department-store purse aisles and at the airport baggage claim, especially with suitcases that have "punch me" written on them. Encourage eager fists with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get one month of anaerobic kickboxing or boxing classes at Conan’s Academy in Norman (a $95 value).
Owned by Scott “Conan” Mincey, a four-time world kickboxing champion and black-belt martial-arts student of Chuck Norris, Conan’s Academy uses bags, foot work, and jump-roping to educate limbs in the art of self-defense and calorie incineration. Open to men, women, and children of all ages, the boxing classes instruct budding pugilists on proper stance and foot placement, laying the groundwork for flab-fighting punches and bag work. Through the slew of sweat-soaked moves, students learn self-defense techniques, all while improving coordination and toning previously undiscovered muscles that were hidden underneath Aquaman makeup from Halloween. The 50-minute anaerobic kickboxing sessions quickly bid adieu to calories by incorporating reflex bags, shields, and 15 minutes of stomach work and plyometrics.
Students are encouraged to work at their own pace, ensuring they’ll be well-trained for battling legions of punching-bag-shaped aliens. Check the class schedule to find a convenient time.
