Smart Black Friday Shopping

By Erik Albrechtson, 5th dan

This past month the media has been filled with non-stop coverage about the upcoming Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals that will coming for consumers this next week. There is so much coverage about where to get the best deals and what the biggest sales, and it made me start to think: What is the best thing you could buy for a loved one?

Is is the latest electronic gadget (that will be obsolete by Black Friday next year)? Is is a new huge TV that will give you a reason to sit around and do nothing productive? Is it a new video game system? There's so many deals out there, what could possibly be the best deal.

But then I had a thought. Why not give them something that will really benefit them? Something that will never become out-of-date. Something that will get them off the couch and get them in shape. Something that won't be a game, but will be something productive in real life! The answer, for me obviously, is give them the gift of martial arts!

Classes at the Colorado Taekwondo Institute (with five metro campuses, including the Littleton location) are great for any of your family or friends. Students of all ages (2 to adult) and abilities (no martial arts experience needed) can come in, learn, get in shape and also do personal development.

Martial arts classes for kids has so many wonderful, life-long benefits. Kids learn focus, discipline, and respect while developing a strong work ethic and keeping their bodies moving. And classes at the Colorado Taekwondo Institute are taught in a structured, yet positive, environment. Instead of sitting at home playing games, they get to pretend they are the Ninja Turtle and do it for real. And again, they are developing good habits that will last them a lifetime.

And, of course, classes are great for adults too. Often students will be intimidated to start classes thinking they need some martial arts knowledge or that they need to be in good physical shape. But nothing could be further from the truth. Students start out a a white belt level and are taught everything from the ground up. Students have goals of techniques to learn and practice and as they develop they move higher in ranks. They are built from the ground up.

Also, students can be in any physical shape to begin. All of the classes are taught with the student in mind and can be tailored for each student's individual needs. Whether you're a stay-at-home mom, a tri-athlete, or someone who hasn't been to the gym since college, then you'll fit in perfectly at the Colroado Taekwondo Institute.

Give the CTI a call today to ask about a holiday certificate for a friend or loved one. We have five campuses in the metro area (including the Littleton location) to serve you. It's the best investment Black Friday deal you'll find!
