The Korean masters who run White Tiger Martial Arts strive to do more than just share the tae kwon do techniques that they've learned over decades of training. They impart their enthusiasm and sincerity for martial arts in every class so students may develop greater discipline, respect, and confidence while also becoming stronger physically and mentally. Belts of increasingly prestigious hues wind around waists as students practice proper martial arts technique and face off against partners in Olympic-style sparring lessons. Family and children's classes are divided by belt and age while adult classes are not divided.
Metroplex Gymnastics & Swim caters to wee ones' experiential education, providing a plethora of classes geared toward having fun, being active, and earning life's merit badges. Certified staff members lead toddlers or school-age children through increasingly challenging gymnastics classes ($50–$140), instructing little legs in tumbling, balance-beaming, and vaulting over prison walls. Adventurous kids can plunge into new hobbies at one of the themed summer camps ($30–$200), with half days of testing out jumping prowess on the trampoline and full weeks of swinging, bending, and swimming on the gym's fun and functional course under the watchful care of the USA Gymnastics–certified instructors.
Owner Tomer Litvin discovered his passion for muay thai more than 18 years ago. His amateur exploits in the ring eventually led him to a spot in Fairtex’s world-renowned personal-tutoring program, the chance to go padded fist to padded fist against numerous European champions, and a career as a certified Fairtex instructor. Also holding a brown belt in Brazilian jujitsu, Tomer now channels his love of the martial arts into helming his own school.
In addition to the striking form of muay thai and the grappling art of jujitsu, Tomer and his staff also teach the highly practical self-defense art of krav maga. In these mixed-martial-arts classes, students can put the varied fighting disciplines together to form a comprehensive sport-fighting system useful for defending themselves, sparring, or staging performances of Mortal Kombat: The Musical.
Learning the martial arts does more than just teach people how to break a wooden board with their bare hands. At Sustaire's ATA Martial Arts, students also learn discipline, self-awareness, and focus. Most of the instructors on staff are world or state champions, and each of them have gone through an intensive training period prior to teaching martial arts classes. In these programs, students as young as four years old can begin lessons in which they learn physical defensive skills that can give them confidence in many situations. With skills in karate and taekwondo, both children and adults grow stronger and find an outlet for stress that doesn't involve knocking brick walls down with a sledgehammer.
Commended for its preservation of the natural Texas landscape, Twin Creeks Golf Club features an 18-hole course that seamlessly integrates native trees and two flowing creeks into a pristine, 6,840-yard layout. All of the picturesque par 72’s difficulties are brought to bear on the par 4 13th hole, where a strong headwind may nudge rightward drives into a rippling creek and an immense green makes any two-putt a tricky proposition. Golf carts glide across the immaculate meadows, occasionally spinning their wheels and wailing their reverse alert in distress as passengers approach the hidden lake of the 17th hole, called the “Devil’s Elbow.” Golfers can calibrate their swings at the course's practice center, which includes a driving range, bunker, chipping area, and putting green, an ideal spot to covertly test any remote-controlled balls. After a day spent making sand angels in every bunker, guests can recess to the rustic confines of the Elkhorn Bar & Grill, where Southwestern fare sates diners resting at patio tables or under the 50-inch flat-screen TV located indoors.
