C.O.R.E. krav maga––a threefold philosophy of self-defense that is ethical, pragmatic, and dynamic––serves as the foundation for Asheville Integrated's hands-on martial-arts classes, during which trainers teach students how to protect themselves in real-world scenarios while conditioning and strengthening their bodies. Using elements of the C.O.R.E. krav maga model, martial-arts instructors also host self-defense classes specifically catered to women and children, helping them build balance, coordination, and the wherewithal to defend themselves in the face of violence. Asheville Integrated Combatives' programs evolve based on feedback from the community, local law enforcement, and burgeoning muscles that pen thank-you notes to staff members.

Flickering neon lights illuminate the faces of pool players at Fat Cats Billiards, their brows furrowed in concentration as they hunch over the deep-green tables. Others engage in lively games of darts and pause now and then to cheer for a particularly good shot or steal a glance at the game playing on one of the 15 flat-screen televisions. After games, friends gather at the bar for frosty beers, plump chicken wings, and juicy Angus-beef burgers to swap tips on making bank shots or harpooning any sharks that somehow swam into the billiards hall.

Olympic Start's staff of experienced gymnastics instructors and childcare providers coach young tumblers in basic Olympic-standard gymnastics during the course of four one-hour courses. Using the USA Gymnastics team's curriculum, coaches train boys and girls in second grade or above in the arts of floor acrobatics, trampoline, bars, beams, and vaults in classes categorized by the student's experience level and understanding of Newton's laws of physics. Girls embark on entry-level exercises in gymnastics skills, theory, and basic body shapes in Bronze class, before building upon those same skills with strength and flexibility training in Silver class. In Titanium sessions, beginner-level boys dart through seven events such as pommel horse, parallel bars, and rings without the heckling they receive at home from Olympic-trained stuffed animals. Young athletes flip and frolic on colorful, child-size equipment above safe, padded floors in a modern gym, with class sizes capped at eight students to allow for thorough instruction.
