At Vivo Fencing Club, a trio of decorated Hungarian coaches share their wisdom and expertise with beginner-through-elite-level fencers. Head coach Arpad "Arpi" Horvath has been involved in the sport since 1989, later going on to become a two-time NCAA champion during his time at St. John's University in New York. Today, Arpi and his fellow coaches rely on the Hungarian fencing approach—which focuses on the whole fencer—to teach students of all ages and abilities. They offer classes for students as young as six, allowing youngsters a chance to gain discipline and develop useful skills while their friends are still struggling with the mountains of paperwork that come with running a lemonade stand.

Certified by the American Mountain Guides Association, the staff of climbing instructors at Boston Rock Gym teach torsos how to ascend altitudes with indoor-, outdoor-, and youth-climbing activities. The savvy instructors lead the way around the facility’s more than 40 ropes, which set the stage for both group and private indoor lessons, as well as open climbing sessions in which self-guided climbers reach for neon-colored handgrips while being supported by auto-belay devices. Outdoors, students learn to navigate nature’s authentic slabs during lessons and clinics that start with the basics and graduate up to advanced ice-climb maneuvers. Additionally, the facility’s youth programs cater to smaller grips and aim to boost self-confidence while preparing children for the physical-fitness portion of the SAT.

Sensei Ed Melaugh spent 18 years practicing street jujitsu before training with Professor Wally Jay, the founder of New England Small Circle JuJitsu. Professor Jay later promoted Ed to eighth-degree black belt and asked him to lead the United States Small Circle Jujitsu Association. In 1991, Ed was inducted into the World Martial Arts Hall of Fame. He also trained with Sijo James DeMile, a student of Bruce Lee. DeMile is best known for his contribution to Lee's intense one- and three-inch punches.

As the sensei at New England Small Circle JuJitsu, Ed Melaugh teaches street safety to kids, adults, and law-enforcement officers. He instructs them to target an attacker's weaknesses, using simple circular motions on their fingers and wrists or bribing them to go away with a sprinkle-flecked donut. Though targeting certain body parts can cause pain, it aims to take down opponents without wounding them.
