The martial-arts masters at AKKA Karate USA specialize in kenpo karate, a unique form that builds muscle tone and reflexes in order to use the body’s natural weapons—hands and feet—for self-defense. In addition to kenpo, they also lead classes focused on MMA, tai chi, and weapons training. Often, AKKA holds special events such as tournaments and sparring seminars. In addition to learning self-defense techniques, students also build valuable life skills such as an appreciation for fitness, discipline, and self-confidence.

In order to conquer an opponent (or two) punches, strikes, and kicks should be fighters' go-to moves. At least according to the strategy behind kenpo, an ancient form of martial arts from the Far East. At Self Defense Studio of Independence, black belts teach the proper order of defensive moves to practitioners of all fitness levels. In order to conserve energy, they emphasize punches, strikes, and kicks as the first steps in a counter-attack, with throws and blocks only used as a last resort since they deplete energy quickly. While kenpo's physical benefits include learning how to focus energy in a single fist or foot, its mental perks include better judgment and concentration so you can remember which fist or foot to ice later.

Sculpted into the undulating countryside in the 1930s, Royal Meadows Golf Club received a facelift in 2002, when course architect Craig Schreiner redesigned much of the layout. The course now makes artful use of three ponds, including on the par-three seventh, where the hazard creates a forced carry from tee-to-green. A 573-yard par-five, the 18th hole brings the round to a dramatic conclusion without forcing carts to drive through a finish line that has been set ablaze.

After the round, golfers can retreat to the clubhouse, where large screen TVs, cold drinks, and snacks replenish golfers. A spacious building forged from old barn wood and tin paneling, the clubhouse winds the clock back to the course's rustic roots.

Painted Hills Golf Club opened in 1929 as Victory Hills Country Club, and it has since undergone two major facelifts, one of which took place in 2013. This included a complete redesign of five holes, as well as the addition of 75 new Zoysia tee boxes, 24 new bunkers, and two miles of new cart paths. Plus, more than 150 trees were removed to open up the course.

Golfers famished after fine-tuning their drives and chips on the course can head to Putter?s Bar & Grill for a sandwich and cold drink.

Royal Meadows Golf Club Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 70 course * Length of 6,388 yards from the tips * Course rating of 70.6 from the tips * Slope rating of 116 from the tips * Four tee options * Scorecard

Painted Hills Golf Club Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 70 course * Length of 5,781 yards from the tips * Course rating of 67.7 from the tips * Slope rating of 119 from the tips * Four tee options * Scorecard

Academy of Fighting Arts instructor and 5th-degree black-belt Clinton Murphy can shatter several objects with his bare hands, from coconuts to concrete blocks. It's a skill known as "breaking," and Murphy claims that it's just as mental as it is physical. This and other martial-arts skills have led to appearances on ESPN2, The Late Show with David Letterman, and the Discovery Channel. At Academy of Fighting Arts, he teaches his students how to hone their own mental focus and martial-arts techniques, emphasizing good form and discipline over brute strength—just as he does when he's preparing to break 14 slabs of concrete in a stack.

When teaching a class, Murphy's martial arts style of choice is American-Filipino Kun Tao. This mix of pressure-point strikes, grappling, and joint-lock throws is ideal for close-quarters fighting. Murphy covers these maneuvers as well as escrima, or stick-fighting, in his adult sessions, whereas kids' classes focus more on teamwork and basic drills. He also hosts four-week self-defense seminars for women, which demonstrate how to effectively escape and subdue an assailant.

The self-defense instructors at Street Defense LLC know there's no referee in a street fight. That's why they arm their students with techniques designed to counter life-threatening assaults using legal self-defense weapons—such as pepper spray and stun guns—as well as their bare hands. The team emphasizes learning through muscle memory, and they repeatedly walk students through hands-on classes that simulate common street confrontations.
