    Judo

    Judo what? You're going to get a kick out of this martial arts class. Judo, known as the "gentle way," incorporates a variety of techniques and skills designed to subdue one's adversary without causing more harm than necessary. You'll learn to use a variety of unbalancing maneuvers designed to use your opponent's weight against him or her, meaning you can take on assailants who weigh considerably more than you. In addition, you'll pick up holds and joint locks designed to easily restrain, and work on punches and kicks so that you can strike with confidence when necessary. While specifically designed by Cooper MMA to compliment their Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu offering, this class also works well as a stand-alone for those looking for a simple yet effective approach to self-defense. So don't throw this free trial class away!

    Triple Two Step

    Just when you think you've got the Two Step down, they times it by three. But have no fear, Austin Uptown Dance is here to teach you everything you need to know about this old favorite. "But Vimbly", you say. "Isn't the Texas Two-Step the old favorite, and the Triple Two Step an off-shoot?" Actually, the Triple Two Step is very similar to the classic Texas Two Step of the 1970's (the glory days of the dance), What we think of as the Texas Two Step now is actually further from the original than this supposed "off-shoot." So by dancing the Triple Two Step, you're really getting at the heart of southern dance hall culture. You'll practice the basic steps in isolation, then work on putting them to music. By the end of the session, you'll be cutting a rug with the best of them!
