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 $29, you get five Bodyfit kickboxing, boxing, or jujitsu classes at New Way Martial Arts Academy in Shelby Township (a $100 value).
New Way Martial Arts Academy's experienced instructors promote an ego-free environment for seminars on Brazilian jujitsu, muay thai boxing, and kickboxing at all skill levels. A silent focusing session opens Brazilian jiu-jitsu courses, which demonstrate the joint locks and chokeholds effective for subduing opponents with leverage rather than force. Sessions end with optional practice spars against other students or student-brought piñatas. Bodyfit kickboxing adds lower halves to the equation with shoeless strikes performed atop cushioned mats. During muay thai boxing hitting drills, attendees launch jabs at both punching bags and target shields.
Coaches urge all guests to progress through combat techniques at their own pace, lest they experience the shame of only ripping through three phonebooks. Patrons should bring or buy their own boxing gloves, though the academy will lend out pairs for the first session and assist guests in ordering their own. Necessary hand wraps can be purchased for $10 onsite. Click here for a class schedule.
Though New Way Martial Arts Academy sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
