  • Michelle's House Cleaning Service
    Michelle's House Cleaning Service uses environmentally friendly products and customizes every cleaning to the client’s cleanliness needs. Upon entering, Michelle and her insured and bonded crew of affable cleaners immediately set to work obliterating dust-bunny habitats in the kitchen, bedrooms, living room, and bathrooms. During the three-hour home makeover, blinds shed their winter dust coats, mirrors reflect surroundings more sharply, and microwaves rid themselves of the remnants of experiments proving that heating a Chris Gaines CD won't make the music any hotter. Michelle's House Cleaning Service brings all its own cleaning supplies, so no homeowner need scour cabinets for scouring pads.

  • Wing Tsun Kwoon
    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.

Both men and women are welcome in the ring, where they'll learn new techniques and methods to blissfully break into a sweat in an energetic group setting. Gloves are provided during the one-month trial membership, as are a set of reusable pro-quality hand wraps and complimentary motivational mumbling from Mickey Goldmill (all three subject to availability).

  • Kensho Martial Arts
    Long before the UFC turned mixed martial arts into a caged spectacle, Kensho Martial Arts founder Roger Luri was melding myriad fighting styles into a coherent method of self-defense. Thirty years of teaching martial arts have shown him that, in a self-defense situation, trained fighters will resort to whatever moves and faked tuberculosis symptoms come the easiest. Instead of inculcating a rigid structure for kicks and punches, he devised a technique that allows students to draw from multiple influences. These include disciplines such as karate, kickboxing, jujitsu, and Western boxing. Luri built his self-defense technique from his broad experience scrapping in multiple styles. In the 1980s, the seventh-degree black belt developed an iron grip over judo and kickboxing. Since then, Luri has developed mastery over Thai and French boxing, for which he received the Silver Glove from the French Federation of Boxe Francaise Savate.
