Aside from climbing out of rattlesnake-infested quicksand or posing for rattlesnake-infested watercolor portraits, few activities combine the focus and physicality seen in mixed-martial-arts training. Today's side deal provides purchasers with outer power and inner poise: for $59, you get six weeks of unlimited training at FIST Mixed Martial Arts (a $399 value), as well as 20% off on renewal of classes beyond the initial six weeks. FIST Mixed Martial Arts has recently relocated to North Miami Beach. This Groupon is valid for new recruits and former trainees, but not current students.
Established in 1988, FIST Mixed Martial Arts offers a potent puree of several styles, including Krav Maga, kung fu, kickboxing, and Jiu-Jitsu, in its curriculum. Throughout the lessons, the school's instructors emphasize self-confidence, discipline, balance, and how a well-delivered high kick can get any malfunctioning jukebox working again. FIST's top priority is the safety of its students, meaning all engagements are closely monitored and students must wear the proper safety equipment. Each class is an hour long, with courses open to martial artists of all ages and abilities. There are classes specifically designed for children (ages 5–7), youth (ages 8–12), and adults (ages 12+), as well as general fitness classes. Check the schedule for upcoming course options.
