Aside from climbing out of rattlesnake-infested quicksand or posing for rattlesnake-infested watercolor portraits, few activities combine the focus and physicality seen in proper self-defense training. Ready yourself with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get a two-hour self-defense class at Tim Lane Fitness at Xtreme Couture Gym (an $89 value).
After battling pros in the ring for nearly 30 years, Tim Lane quit his knockout quest to teach commoners how to confidently repel unsanctioned attacks. In Xtreme Couture's decked-out facility, mixed-martial-artist Lane counsels students in how to defend themselves against assailants and friends’ pet lemurs through a sequence of lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on tutorials. Each two-hour seminar sharpens general awareness of surroundings and zeroes in on deterring and disabling larger assailants. Upon completion of the class, students walk away with bottles of pepper spray, certificates, and greater self-assurance.
