What You'll Get
Without a healthy outlet for physical activity, restless limbs have been known to act out by arm-wrestling grizzlies or pawing at the faces of friendly baristas. Keep your gams and hands entertained with today’s Groupon to Wiseman’s Martial Arts in Mount Pearl. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get eight drop-in kickboxing classes (a $60 value), good for competitive and recreation classes or ladies-only cardio.

Wiseman’s Martial Arts propels students of all abilities and ages to the next fitness level with cardio-blasting classes and a fully equipped martial-arts gym. Recreational kickboxing classes instruct pupils on the fundamentals of technique and fancy-footed combinations. Ring-regulars thrive in competitive classes to train for upcoming competitions alongside fellow athletes, including four Canadian Kickboxing champions. Ladies’ cardio kickboxing combines punches, kicks, plyometrics, and sit-ups to whittle stems of steel and buns firm enough to scare off embittered beanbag chairs.
Kenpo karate students jab and bow through an array of programs tailored to a variety of experience levels, with classes for kindergarteners to adults to seriously, actual adults. A traditional Chinese martial art, Kenpo promotes self-control, teamwork, and balance to help pupils develop self-defense and sparring skills that can guard against headlocks and aggressive bear hugs. Pint-sized martial artists focus on character development and anti-bullying tactics while learning real-life techniques to overcome childhood challenges. The studio’s schedule hosts afternoon and evening sessions six days a week.

About Rock Athletics
Robbie Wiseman earned his black belt in kenpo karate at age 11, going on to earn an International Kickboxing Federation world-championship belt. He found that the discipline gleaned from kenpo helped him in school and beyond. Through Rock Athletics, he shares the same philosophies that bettered his life with students, inviting parents and children to train side by side and to learn time-tested techniques for improving focus or dealing with bullies.
Beyond kenpo-karate training, the gym also offers fitness boot camps and cardio-kick-boxing classes. Whether you're studying martial arts or just getting in shape, the fully matted 8,700-square-foot facility provides ample space to work up a sweat or play pickup games of Cirque du Soleil.
