Martial artists wear colourful belts to indicate their mastery of fighting techniques and their long-standing blood feud with suspenders. Self-defend in style with today's Groupon: for $19, you get 10 martial arts classes (up to a $150 value) at Pro Dojos. Choose from 32 locations.
The legion of certified instructors at each Pro Dojos location helps their pupils gain confidence and learn martial arts disciplines during classes for adults, kids, teens, and families. Students aged 4 and older can learn traditional karate moves, enroll in MMA classes to mix disciplines, or opt for kick-boxing courses that teach how to quickly break down cardboard boxes (disciplines may vary by location). Ten classes grant the power to focus on one style or test out different courses such as kung fu or traditional weaponry. Customers can also enroll in gender-specific classes at select locations. Instructors equip each of their protégés with all the requisite equipment, requiring them to dress in standard fitness attire and refrain from giving the punching bags too many hugs. Though schedules vary by location (customers should call their chosen dojo for class times), most classes last around one hour and take place during weekday evenings as well as on weekend mornings and afternoons.
At Pro Dojos, certified martial-arts experts lead students of all ages and skill levels through a variety of pugilistic disciplines. Each location is independently owned, so the martial-arts styles may vary, but many offer karate, tae kwon do, kick-boxing, aikido, and jujitsu classes. The instructors elucidate the noble combat arts to kiddos as young as 4 years old, helping them build strength and motor skills while instilling the values of self-confidence. Teen classes focus on honing discipline and treating yourself and others with respect, and adult classes reinforce cardiovascular conditioning, strength, balance, and coordination. The instructors also lead classes for the whole family, allowing them to bond as a unit, which could possibly lead to starring in a hit sitcom about a crime-fighting family who takes down comical villains in their idyllic suburban neighborhood.
