Manchu soldiers set out to destroy the Siu Lam Monastery more than 250 years ago, but luckily for martial-arts practitioners, the Buddhist elders inside escaped. One of them was Ng Mui, who, while in hiding, created the self-defense style known today as wing tsun. Instructors at Wing Tsun Kwoon, which is a branch of the Carson Wing Tsun Academy, teach students to reduce their victimization by exuding confidence. They also teach pupils how to defend themselves if they come under attack by someone trying to steal the jewels set in their bellybuttons. Wing tsun practice boasts more than the benefit of self-defense; it can also tone muscles, torch calories, boost flexibility, and improve balance. In the spirt of the Carson Wing Tsun Academy, it focuses on helping its students on their own personal growth, development, and actualization.

Using James Pugliese's 20-year-tested six-step program, The Better Golf Academy deploys mobile putting pedagogues to educate aspiring child and adult golfers in the basics of club swinging at the driving range of their choice. During private, 30-minute golf lessons, instructors dismantle students' swings into separate parts—including grip, setup, backswing, downswing, and impact—before reconstructing them into fluid ball-smacking strokes. In addition to teaching basic rules and etiquette, lessons focus on the putting, pitching, and chipping required of successful short games, which are played by people with shorter necks. The Better Golf Academy supplies all necessary equipment, including range balls and clubs, so that students don't needlessly sprain a set of salad tongs.

If you've ever played Mortal Kombat II, you've met Coach Anthony Marquez. You probably just know him as Kung Lao, the Shao Lin monk sporting a razor-edged hat. After lending his likeness and skills to Midway Games for the iconic fighting title, he opened his own gym?EKF Martial Arts?to share his fighting style with real-life students. EKF actually stands for "Extreme Kung Fu," and Coach Tony, as students call him, teaches a lot of martial arts to adults and kids throughout the week. Kung fu's graceful, powerful movements help students improve flexibility, speed, and body control, both in unarmed fighting styles and weapon forms. Any Monday or Wednesday a visit to the gym might find students wielding one-time tools of war, from familiar swords and staffs to the exotic and strange rope darts and chain whips.

Though Kung Fu is Coach Tony's specialty, he loves all forms of fighting. He himself also teaches competitive sanshou, a form of Chinese kickboxing known for its graceful takedowns. Other instructors at the gym?former and current professionals of various disciplines?cover muay thai, boxing, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and, of course, MMA. The gym is home to a handful of MMA fighters who compete at the amateur level, and boast a nearly four-year long uninterrupted winning streak. The varied training regimen, which includes intense conditioning classes affectionately referred to as "The Eliminator," aims to produce well-rounded fighters with the strength, conditioning, and confidence to wear shorts of any length, at any time.
