Martial artists wear colorful belts to indicate their mastery of fighting techniques and their passionate disdain for suspenders. Achieve stylish self-defense strategies with today's Groupon: for $19, you get one month of unlimited kickboxing, fitness, Brazilian jiujitsu and mixed-martial-arts classes from the MS American Fight Team in Boca Raton (a $99 value).
Led by black belt and professional MMA fighter Manoel Soares, the MS American Fight Team leads fighters of all ages and experience levels through classes focused on disciplined fitness and muscle-carving self-defense. Clients can choose from several one-hour daily sessions to immerse themselves in intense body architecting with 1–35 fellow kickmates. First-time fighters usually start in a grapple-heavy Brazilian jiujitsu no gi course; additional options include a fiercely feminine women’s kickboxing class, which, like team-building office limbo contests, is sometimes moderated by semipro MMA instructors. Adult MMA classes teach the fundamentals of cross-cultural fighting, and kids’ Brazilian jiujitsu relays the secrets of the South American practice to students ages 5–12. Check the schedule and call to reserve a spot in your first class.
