Though often regarded as instinct, fighting is actually a skill acquired in the womb, where all babies must defeat their evil selves in order to be born. Further prenatal training with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $8 for one private self-defense lesson and one group class (a $75 value)
- $35 for one private self-defense lesson and a month of unlimited group fitness classes (a $249 value)
In 30-minute private lessons, students learn how to properly wrap their hands before practicing foundational punching and kicking techniques. They then put their newfound skills to the test in an hour-long mixed-martial-arts group class.
Alternatively, students who select the second option receive unlimited access to the studio facilities, and can attend as many martial arts and fitness classes as they can handle throughout the week for one month. In boxing and muay thai classes, instructors guide students through evasive and offensive maneuvers, while in Power Boxing and Power Kickboxing sessions, trainers infuse classic jabs and foot strikes with high-intensity callisthenic and cardio exercises. During spinning classes, students embark on rigorous rides astride indoor cycles while up-tempo music blares. In youth classes, kids practice martial-arts exercises that boost endurance, increase stamina, and empower them to stand up to bullies and homework-eating dogs.

The Boxing Club
The patter of gloves against heavy bags and the paced breathing of circling sparring partners fills The Boxing Club with energy. That's amplified by trainers, who lead classes in everything from cycling to kickboxing. There's muay thai, for example, an MMA fighting style that torches calories with flurries of flying elbows, knees, and fists, or jiu jitsu, which focuses more on grappling.
Martial arts are, in a way, just one more way of working towards physical fitness for many at the studio. Fitness goals are helped along by a full weight room, cardio area, and pilates studio. There's also a full locker room for cleaning up afterwards.
