My Gym's Parents' Night Out program gives mothers, fathers, guardians, and packs of wolves a break from the 24/8 task of raising children and allows them a well-deserved night out on the town. While the grown-ups hit the golf alleys and karaoke rodeos of the greater Washington DC area, My Gym's staff of trained fitness and childcare experts keep young'uns mentally active and physically occupied. Kids will flex social muscles, exercise emotional intelligence, and bench-press cognitive processes. The three hours of fun include pizza, a movie, games, arts and crafts, story time, and a brief overview of how loop quantum gravity theory doesn't require string theory's multiple dimensions of space-time.

Karate master Kancho Ninomiya adapted the classic techniques of his favorite fighting style to the needs of modern self-defense, creating the style known as Enshin Karate. The fast-paced style emphasizes constant movement, a blend of kicks and grappling take-downs, and techniques for facing multiple opponents at once. The practical nature of the street-savvy style appealed to a young Nima Mazhari, who discovered a dojo on his way home from school one day.

Mazhari joined the school hoping to learn to fight, but instead discovered the value of a determined work ethic. The lessons he learned in that dojo inspired him to excel in school, pass his college-entrance exams, and pursue his degree. He then decided to share the lessons he had learned with the world. He founded Enshin Karate to not only teach kids and adults his fighting techniques, but to help them discover how to be the best versions of themselves without relying on personality upgrades downloaded online.

Great Play is many things: lessons that help kids develop early motor skills into complex sport-playing abilities; a curriculum based on the latest research; and a technologically advanced play area known as the Interactive Arena. Mostly, though, it's just fun. Instructors coax confidence and athleticism from every child by introducing them—and parents, of course—to developmentally appropriate games and exercises. For the youngest kids, instructors focus on simple motor skills and hand-eye coordination, lessons dressed up as fun games such as balloon paddle. And in turn, games like that lay the foundation for learning a tennis or baseball swing later in life, during the stage when sports become fun and the world starts throwing baseballs at you regularly.
