As history would tell it, karate has its roots in 5th century China, when a monk brought both Buddhism and martial arts training to the country. The art's first public demonstration in Japan, though, wasn't until 1917, when a group of martial artists captured the Japanese peoples' imaginations with their athleticism and skill. The Okinawan martial art quickly became a staple of Japanese culture, and branched out through the world. George Santiago, one of the most recent in a lineage of masters of the art, teaches an evolution of that same karate today at Bushido Karate Dojo, Inc.

He and his fellow teachers hold classes for both adults and kids, with training starting as young as three years old. They instill in their students not only martial skill, but a deep sense of respect and duty toward themselves and others, regardless of rank.

Beneath the summer sun, riders traverse the three outdoor arenas at Minieri's Parkview Riding Center. Groups of summer camp participants not only climb into the saddle for lessons, but work with their assigned horses to learn the fundamentals of grooming, tacking, and eating an entire apple. Instructors also work with autistic and at-risk students during therapeutic riding sessions, working to help build confidence and self-esteem. During the cooler months, riders can keep the lessons trotting inside the huge 80'x200' arena, safe from the elements.

From the person putting on gym shorts for the very first time to the gym rats who eat, sleep, and breathe dumbbells, exercisers of all backgrounds build muscle and stamina during one-on-one personal training and group fitness settings at Long Island Fitness & Wellness. The fleet of experienced instructors tailors their personal training sessions to suit the needs and goals of guests, keeping cardio and strength training challenging but always interesting. Their group fitness classes do the same. For instance, Hardbody Boot Camp uses nonstop interval training with minimal equipment, while Bangin’ Booty 101 classes—named for the first course offered at Harvard University in 1636—target specific muscle groups with free weights and body resistance. The instructors lead their sessions within a cavernous gym that sports a full-wall abstract mural.
