Aside from climbing out of rattlesnake-infested quicksand or posing for rattlesnake-infested watercolor portraits, few activities combine the focus and physicality seen in mixed martial-arts training. Hone in on these useful talents with today's Groupon: for $30, you get five fitness or yoga classes at USMMA in Bellingham (a $75 value).
USMMA, or United States Mixed Martial Arts to those agitated with acronyms, delivers a challenging combination of combative classes including Brazilian jujitsu, muay Thai boxing, and Vinyasa yoga. Brazilian jujitsu frees small-statured individuals of size restraints by imparting submissive wrestling techniques to take down larger opponents and burn up to 1,100 calories per session. Known as the art of the eight limbs, muay Thai boxing has become the national sport of Thailand because of its full-body sparring skills, energetic conditioning drills, and arsenal of defense mechanisms to finally take down unruly parking meters.
Housed in a state-of-the-art training facility, USMMA lays the hard-fought foundation for success with a 2,000-square-foot MMA training floor, 1,500-square-foot yoga studio, and an armada of conditioning equipment. Classes are open to all ages and skill levels, and are designed to instill a mind-body betterment of strength and discipline. For more information, check out the schedule here.
