Grandmaster Y.K. Kim’s whirlwind life has taken him from Korea to the United States while wearing many hats including author, public speaker, philosopher, entrepreneur, and founder of Martial Arts World. The latter has grown into a family tree of locations spanning four states. At each location, dedicated instructors guide kids and adults through martial-arts classes that aim to instill a sense of confidence, self-discipline, and respect in each and every student. Classes serve as sweat-inducing workouts and an outlet to learn self-defense techniques.
To stay abreast of the latest advancements in the rapidly changing field of dentistry, Barry Kurzer DDS has logged hundreds of hours of continuing education classes and has been a member of the American Dental Association for more than 30 years.

Katie Mullins created Aim 4 Fitness as a female-friendly workout environment that makes use of highly aerobic, personally empowering kickboxing. She keeps her classes contact-free, focusing instead on the passive benefits of kickboxing rather than the combative elements.

Nestled on 28 tree-lined acres of Chesterfield County, Oasis Sports Park beckons to sportspeople of all stripes with a scenic complex of family-friendly, recreational attractions. The centerpiece of the entire park, its nine-hole, par 3 course, challenges players with bent grass greens and Bermuda grass fairways and roughs. With tee-to-green distances ranging from 75–175 yards, the course features enough variety for players to dig deep into their repertoire of short-irons, mid-irons, and bedazzled parade scepters. Bunkers enshroud the five target greens at the Park’s 10,000 square-yard driving range, raising the stakes on practice shots as players swing freely from Bermuda grass hitting areas or covered, heated stalls. The Park also encompasses an 18-hole miniature golf course and a nine-station batting cage, where mechanical pitchers hurl baseballs up to 70 mph to simulate the experience of dodging a tiny meteor.
