  • Ralph Gracie Jiu Jitsu
    Maybe it's a good thing the founders of Brazilian jiujitsu were not huge men. At just 135 pounds, co-founder Helio Gracie was forced to rely on leverage rather than rote strength or merciless tickling to help him overcome larger opponents. So in an effort to reduce the natural advantage of size, he worked these techniques into Brazilian jiujitsu's system of joint locks, chokes, and take-downs. In that way, Brazilian jiujitsu became a practical form of self-defense; you didn't have to be able to kick down a tree to become dangerous. At Ralph Gracie Jiu Jitsu, black belt martial artist Dave Clahan and his team have armed students of every size with these same leverage-based self-defense techniques. Inside their 4,000 square foot studio, students of all ages and levels soak up grappling and submission skills they can refine for the ring or reserve for life-saving moments on the street. In addition to building physical ability, the instructors also emphasize building intangible qualities, such as confidence and self-respect.

  • Salsa with Tomaj
    Tomaj Trenda](http://www.salsawithtomaj.com/about.html) has devoted his life to dance. After receiving a Masters degree in dance education, he has been honing the toe-taps of students everywhere from the University of Washington to the National Ballet of Mexico. Tomaj also keeps his skills and stage presence honed by performing internationally throughout Europe, Asia, and North America. Not content to accept old traditions as law, he has spent considerable post-graduate time training in how to teach new motor skills to adults. When instructing people through dance, Tomaj works with the brain instead of against it. Using a measured amount of repetition, he ensures his students learn and retain the steps from every class. Each lesson builds off the skills of the last, creating a strong foundation on which students stack a repertoire of moves and their hope of beating the Greasers in any sudden dance-offs. Leaders learn various root moves and how to combine and vary those moves to create complex and stylistic dance routines.
