What You'll Get
Aside from climbing out of rattlesnake-infested quicksand or posing for rattlesnake-infested watercolour portraits, few activities combine the focus and physicality seen in martial-arts training. Master brain-kicks with today's Groupon to Shaku Family Martial Arts. Today’s deal is valid at the Kingston East and Kingston West locations. Choose from the following options:
- For $19, you get a 5-class martial-arts package (a $100 value).
- For $35, you get a 10-class martial-arts package (a $200 value).
- For $49, you get a 15-class martial-arts package (a $300 value).
Each package includes the following:
- Choice of MMA, kickboxing, or karate classes
- Two private lessons
Dedicated to heightening pupils’ intrinsic senses of respect, confidence, discipline, and self-defense, Shaku Family Martial Arts’ professionally trained instructors guide students of all ages through rigorous fitness programs held amid more than 4,500 square feet of heavy bags and training equipment. Roundhousing gurus helm classes that employ moves from martial arts modalities including Muay Thai kickboxing, ju-jitsu, and kung-fu, giving humans a diverse edge over toe-stubbing door jambs. Women’s kickboxing classes relieve tension with an intense cardio regimen designed to bolster abs and self-defense, and an MMA class fuses kickboxing and submission grappling into a potent combat cocktail. Students over age 8 take to the mats in youth and adult classes while kids up to 6 years old can hone inner and outer strengths in a Little Ninjas course that demonstrates how to efficiently craft throwing stars from crustless peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches. Kickers can bolster training regimens with a pair of private lessons tailored to accommodate individual skill levels. During each session, participants receive one-on-one instruction and personalized pointers relating to the improvement of form, the implementation of new techniques, and the execution of a commanding thumbs up. Shaku Family Martial Arts deftly counters their students’ busy schedules with daytime and evening sessions in which they conduct bag-pounding orchestras of up to 40.

About Shaku Family Martial Arts
Dedicated to heightening pupils’ senses of respect, confidence, discipline, and self-defense, Shaku Family Martial Arts professionally trained instructors guide students of all ages through rigourous fitness programs held in a 4,500 square foot space full of heavy bags and training equipment. Instructors helm classes that employ moves from martial arts modalities including Muay Thai kickboxing, ju-jitsu, and kung fu, giving humans a diverse edge over toe-stubbing door jambs.
Women’s kickboxing classes relieve tension with an intense cardio regimen designed to bolster abs and self-defense, and an MMA class fuses kickboxing and submission grappling into a potent combat cocktail. Teachers use a principle-based approach to self-defense, addressing the physics and philosophy behind each technique for hand-to-hand combat. Among other strategies, fighters learn to use leverage to overwhelm an opponent and master striking angles that are difficult to block. The house style draws techniques from kung fu, kempo, kickboxing, and Brazilian jiu-jitsu, arming disciples with a comprehensive methodology unique to Shaku.
