The official fighting system of the Israeli military, krav maga—Hebrew for “close combat”—has been adopted by special-forces teams worldwide, and now prepares civilians to neutralize threats via studios such as Triangle Krav Maga. TKM’s team of four instructors imparts efficient, practical moves stripped of acrobatic flourishes, equipping students to execute quick counterattacks, neutralize multiple attackers, and bring fights to a swift close. Classes span two skill levels—beginner and advanced—whereas open workouts unite all comers in a milieu that prizes respect over aggressive posturing or passive-aggressive commenting on the color of one's hand wraps.Padded walls line the studio where patrons practice their moves. Students can check out the ongoing action and stay posted on special events via Triangle Krav Maga's Facebook page.

Opened as a roller-skating center in 1977, Wheels Fun Park broadened its ambitions in 1992 when it bloomed into a full-fledged family fun center. After its metamorphosis, the park incorporated attractions that include an 18-hole mini-golf course, five batting cages, and a quarter-mile go-kart track. Nothing overshadows its roots though, and today's 25,000-square-foot roller rink commands a 14-speaker sound system and a dazzling light show that twinkles in skaters' sparkling eyes along with the glow of two disco balls.

A 6,500-square-foot play gym allows tots to act out the story of the Minotaur of Crete in a labyrinthine system of climbing tubes. An onsite skate park treats boarders to a slew of supervised rails and spines as well as a mini halfpipe. During holidays and when school is not in session, day camps keep kids well fed and well educated in subjects such as the geometry of mini golf.

The disciplines and fundamentals of dance weave a common thread through the facility's many endeavors, which include aspirations to emerge as a performance-art community by way of engaging live shows. Off stage, Bellan provides various educational programs and fitness classes that encourage participants of all ages to get up and move, even if they lack the experience and spring-loaded toes of many professional steppers.
