Unlike kangaroos, when humans come out of the pouch, their passive hands are generally lacking boxing gloves. Equip the equipment and the instincts of a natural kickboxer with today's deal: for $20, you get one month of unlimited classes (a $112 value) at Condition and Competition Kickboxing.
Kickboxing burns calories, builds lean muscle, tones and conditions the body, and increases flexibility—benefits which have made it such a gym-class mainstay that people often mistake treadmills for kickboxmills. With classes for every age group (there’s even a junior Sanshou class for kids 6 through 17), Condition and Competition Kickboxing offers a kickboxing program for students of all ages. Coach Ed Carpio and his team of instructors—aka the 10 Deadly Venoms, which is also the name of their Bee Gees tribute band—will skillfully guide students through each class.
Carpio is a San Shou (Chinese kickboxing) champion, and he'll teach students how to box, parry, take down opponents, and free-form spar in his Condition and Competition Kickboxing classes. Martial artists and martial poets can opt for a Brazilian jiu-jitsu class. Peaceful warriors, meanwhile, can get all of the health benefits of kickboxing without any of the fighting by taking CCK's condition kickboxing, condition paddle training, circuit-bag training, Thai pad training, or power kickboxing classes. See the schedule for full class descriptions and times.

Condition and Competition Kickboxing
As CEO and chief instructor of Condition and Competition Kickboxing, Ed Carpio draws from a victory-studded background of competitive fighting. Though he came to the art of Chinese kickboxing (also called sanshou) at 21, later than many greats, he rose through successive bouts to become a national lightweight champion. Ed then turned to training others with his expertise, remaining devoted to his sanshou students throughout his sporadic returns to the ring, a study in judo, and a government summons to deflect an impending asteroid.
CCK preaches acceptance and positivity through programs for all ages, from toddlers to adults. Its gym has been highlighted on one of KRON 4's "Best of The Bay" segments for casting a familial air over martial-arts learning. Bordered by camouflage-painted walls, guests can launch strikes at bags, pads, and partners during kickboxing courses, or focus on classical conditioning with weights and fitness machinery.
