This is a real gem of a find on Groupon. If you're anything like me: shy, low self-esteem and overweight, then this is the perfect place for you to challenge yourself and prove everyone wrong. The instructors (Aliyma!) are fantastic and understand your strengths and limitations. I encourage you to challenge yourself, you're not as weak as you make yourself to be!
This Groupon is one of the best things I've done. I started using it the first week of August. After 4 classes I signed up for 6 months and go 3-4 times a week.
I've lost some weight, met some fantastic people and am progressing very well. All of the instructors are excellent and very much interested in helping you achieve your goals.
Highly recommend this to anyone looking to learn how to properly defend themselves, get fit and have fun in a competitive environment.

Krav Maga: Fitness for Street Survival
Krav maga is a tough, direct style of martial arts. Take a peek at its background with Groupon’s introduction.
There’s a reason krav maga pairs the Hebrew words for “combat” and “contact.” The practice has one simple aim: to bring down an aggressor as quickly as possible. Unlike many traditional self-defense styles, krav maga’s movements—which include groin kicks, elbow strikes, and head butts—call upon survival instincts rather than choreography. During training, practitioners channel these instincts as they make their way through a combination of technique drills and simulated assault scenarios designed to cultivate heightened self-awareness and the ability to shut down violent situations fast. The form has proven so effective that the Israeli Defense Forces use it as their official self-defense system.
Krav maga creator Imi Lichtenfeld forged his fast, no-frills maneuvers out of necessity on the streets of 1930s Bratislava, where he was forced to protect himself and others from anti-Semitic violence. Lichtenfeld later emphasized the seriousness and potential deadliness of his street-born self-defense system in a 1976 interview with People, articulating why it could never be confined to a ring bound by rules and regulations. Such restriction, he said, “destroys the basic principle of krav maga: you automatically end the fight by putting an end to your opponent.”
