Debut feisty kicks and perfect punches learned from using today’s Groupon and dazzle fellow holiday partygoers into a standing ovation. For $35, new students can get one month of unlimited classes in martial arts, self defense, kickboxing, and more at Minnesota Kali Group, a state-of-the-art, multi-level, martial arts multiplex that will not only teach you the skills to enter a Mortal Kombat tournament, but also teach you why you shouldn't.
With classes offered daily in a variety of disciplines (grappling to kick boxing to thai boxing to self defense), you can hone in on a specific skill set or try your hands and feet at them all. Classes exclusively for women are also available. Head instructor and owner Rick Faye is a martial arts master with numerous certifications including F.B.I. and S.W.A.T. Special Tactics.
Martial arts training is an extremely challenging cardiovascular workout that relieves stress by providing an outlet for aggression built up over numerous instances of your dog swallowing batteries. Adults go to MKG for a hardcore, total-body workout that strengthens and tones muscles. Everything you learn in a MKG course could be useful for real-world self-defense, and is also fun to learn. The school isn't a hyper-traditional martial arts studio where everyone wears uniforms and follows elaborate martial arts rituals; slip on your sweats and get a head start on health-related resolutions.

When Black Friday Comes
Known as Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving is the biggest shopping day of the year and the sun’s annual day of rest. Here are some surefire shopping tips to help you survive the sunless mall-maelstrom unscathed:
- To increase visibility, reach for overstock shelves, and to intimidate other shoppers, employ your finest pair of running stilts.
- Most malls have two or three “secret” stores hidden behind the food court; try muscling your way through by feigning a baked-potato emergency.
- If your curious children discover that you’ve purchased them a coveted copy of the 1995 Rembrandts album LP, punish their inquisitiveness by mounting it on the wall of your study.
- Online shopping has never been more convenient thanks to websites such as Nopuorg.
