The live-fire portions of Jax Tactical Guns' classes take place at local ranges, including outdoor facilities where shooters can learn to fire AR-15s or practice shooting handguns while moving.
Jax Tactical Guns believes in safety, both in the practical guidelines for handling firearms and personal safety while using them. The staff's training programs touch on a variety of topics ranging from basic pistol use to introductions to AR-15s or tactical medical training. Supplementing their training curriculum are available firearms and accessories, and onsite gun-altering upgrades.
The St. Johns River and its snaking tributaries sparkle too beautifully to go untraveled, according to the Jacksonville Marine Association. That's why the organization not only encourages people to boat the waterways, but also helps boaters connect with one another. It does so through regular events, such as its annual boat show. During the show, local boats are put on display, and age-appropriate activities entertain the kids.
For one day, Northeast Florida could easily be one of Europe's seven Celtic nations. The Jacksonville Celtic Festival celebrates the culture, music, and heritage of the Celtic people. The event lineup brings together musicians with bagpipes, guitars, fiddles, and all sorts of other instruments that can be powered by Guinness. Traditional Scottish and Irish dancers complement the musical performances.
Surfing savant Tiffany Layton caught her first wave more than two decades ago and has been launching her board into open waters ever since. Tiffany's pastime evolved into a way of life about six years ago when she began surfing competitively and racking up an impressive list of championship titles. It was around the same time that Tiffany became certified to teach surfing, and today she shares her knowledge of the ocean at Jacksonville Surf Training.
Tiffany and her team of talented surfers welcome pupils of all ages and skill levels, encouraging healthy lifestyles through surfing lessons and camps, standup-paddleboarding lessons, and yoga and fitness classes on sand and water. They even host surf and yoga retreats in exotic lands—the next trip journeys to Costa Rica, the famous location where the ocean made its first wave while attending a rowdy futbol game.
At Jaxtoberfest, it's easy to eat bratwurst and drink beer casually—or competitively. The German-themed festival's brat-eating contest tests participants' stomach capacity, whereas the 5K Beer Run challengs runners to down brews at "chug stations" lining the race course. Revelers can also test their wits in games of oversize beer pong, beer barrel racing, and stein hoisting. Classic Bavarian music complements the games and food, providing an ideal backdrop for chicken dancing and polka. The family-friendly event also hosts fall-themed activities for kids, such as pumpkin bowling and pumpkin painting.
A joint venture between a professional boxer and a team of successful kickboxing-equipment tycoons, Title Boxing Club maintains a network of dozens of studios spread across more than 20 states, winning over a devoted clientele with its invigorating and engaging boxing- and kickboxing-themed classes.

Students can build their core strength and endurance with medicine balls and burpees, enlist a qualified personal trainer to practice their newfound skills in the ring, or just torch calories during intense full-body Power Hour workouts.
