Aside from climbing out of rattlesnake-infested quicksand or posing for rattlesnake-infested watercolor portraits, few activities combine the focus and physicality seen in yoga and kickboxing training. Give foot-paintings a little martial artistry with today’s Groupon to Tiger Rock Academy, with three locations available. Choose from three options:
- For $35, you get one month of unlimited yoga classes plus a mat to keep (an $89 value).

Tiger Rock provides a host of martial arts and body-friendly fitness classes in a positive environment beneficial to both teens and adults. User-friendly Vinyasa yoga classes pare down the ancient fitness science of yoga into a range of practical and accessible movements, and Kisado-kickboxing students extract an effective exercise regimen from the art of self-defense. Taught by instructors certified through YogaFit, yoga classes boost strength and inner focus through postures designed to reduce the risk of injury and augment the efforts of those recovering from a variety of ailments. Lower-back pain and tension float off into the ether as students connect with their spirits via a series of challenging postures and mantras softly recited by temporarily employed spirit animals.
Boxing bags caught in a flurry of kicks and padded punches lurch back and forth in the exciting, motivating atmosphere of Kisado-kickboxing classes. Fleet-footed instructors mix together the explosive power of plyometrics, cardio-motion drills, core-busting exercises, and strength training in a potent mélange designed to kick calories and potential attackers to the curb. Classes also include nutritional counseling, body measurements, and body-fat analyses to root out arterial ninjas before they wreak damage on internal organs.
With daily kickboxing-class times at three locations and five scheduled yoga classes at two locations, those who opt for the ultimate-fitness program will have ample opportunities to bolster their fitness repertoire. As an added bonus, Tiger Rock equips students with high-quality kickboxing gloves and yoga mats to take home and anthropomorphize by burdening them with cutesy nicknames.
Tiger Rock Academy
With one foot planted in traditional martial-arts pedagogy and the other roundhouse-kicking modern sports science, Tiger Rock Academy schools limbs with fast-paced, total-body fitness classes. The health-and-fitness program consists of Kisado kickboxing, which blends martial arts and nutritional counseling to build up the whole body and tone each strand of hair on the head. Martial arts classes for adults and kids cover counter aggressive forms such as taekwondo and hanmudo, a style based on grappling and takedowns.
