What You'll Get
Now that the Justice League spends most of its time combating online pirates who plunder superhero movies before their release date, we must develop the skills to deal with violent crime ourselves. Keep a hard watch on reality with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get 10 group martial-arts and fitness classes at Guy Mezger’s Combat Sports Club in Addison (a $250 value).
Children and adults from all walks of life can learn to alternate their steps with incapacitating kicks at Guy Mezger’s Combat Sports Club, a martial-arts facility presided over by five-time world champion Guy Mezger. An experienced team of instructors leads the club’s weekly schedule of classes, including MMA takedowns, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, judo, MMA boxing, kickboxing, and muay thai, which employs the body’s eight proverbial limbs and eight literal tentacles. All classes place a firm emphasis on practical exercise and self-defense training. Students of all fitness levels can take advantage of Mezger’s 7,000-square-foot facility, utilizing the room’s MMA cage to develop combat techniques and its stunning acoustics to practice choral battle cries. Level 1 striking and grappling classes inundate newcomers with the basics of martial arts, and intermediate Level 2 classes take combat to the next level pending instructor approval.
Youth programs for kids ages 5–12 build playground confidence through a regimen of martial-arts exercises, drills, and safety tips. Though instructors strive to keep students on their toes with programs that differ every day, all classes pose a challenge and present opportunities to socialize with like-minded peers between headlocks. Customers participating in Level 1 striking classes will need to bring wrist-stabilizing hand wraps or purchase them at the club for $10 (cost not included with today’s deal). A long-sleeved rash guard, mouthpiece, groin protector, and slippery dolphin costume are recommended for Level 1 grappling classes.
