Students of muay thai, sometimes referred to as Thai kickboxing, learn to protect themselves with swift movements of the fists, feet, elbows, and knees. At Team Link Muay Thai, coach Ibere Reis teaches individuals and small groups muay thai technique with the help of 10 grappling mats, weights and punching bags, and a full-size fighting ring. In addition to increased self-defense skills, participants can develop higher levels of fitness and self-esteem.
Founded in 1924 as a vaudeville palace and movie house, The Strand Theatre harks back to the cinematic havens of yore with its homey auditorium space and vintage marquee. Groups enjoy recent releases and classic films while seated at tables, which grant unimpeded legroom and preclude fistfights over whose cup holder is whose. The tables are placed in a staggered and tiered arrangement that ensures every audience member has a clear sightline. The in-house restaurant shares a full-service menu of appetizers and entrees from the grill, as well as craft beer and wine, all of which can be enjoyed inside the theater.
BBs fly across Citadel Airsoft's 60,000-square-foot indoor facility as marksmen square off in CO2-fueled contests. Three days a week, open skirmishes reward strategy in 30-minute games that follow a variety of rules and scenarios such as Downed Pilot, where rival teams compete to either rescue or capture a specific player. For more experienced sharpshooters, Citadel organizes indoor and outdoor simulations that test players' mettle with unique obstacles and targets painted on remote-control houseflies. First-time players can boost their airsoft skills during training events and add to their personal armory with safety equipment and supplies from the facility's onsite pro shop.
Comprising 90,000 square feet of community shape-up shape, the Westboro Tennis & Swim Club has been intensifying heart rates with swimming, fitness, group exercise, and tennis programs for more than 35 years. The full-service fitness and recreation facility boasts no fewer than 11 tennis courts, featuring both indoor and outdoor clay courts and indoor hard courts, all with clearly marked court boundaries to discourage unrequited advances from a love-struck ball cannon. The club's skilled tennis instructors—many of whom are USPTA and USPTR certified—assist pupils of all ages, starting with a full evaluation of existing skills before launching into a comprehensive tutelage that can cover everything from court rules and basic swings to refining preexisting technique. Snag a private lesson for one-on-one attention, or grab two or three friends who share your interest in this refined sport and its old-fashioned disdain for anything round and yellow.
Unlike a tuxedo fitting, getting fitted for a custom driver provides valuable feedback that pertains to more than how smooth your hips are.

In around an hour, you'll know more about your golf club than most married couples know about each other's font preferences; you'll receive statistics for over 25 aspects of your swing including launch angle, wrist-cocking angle, and the computed distance of carry and roll.
