Brass Boxing and Fitness's curriculum combines fitness and martial arts, catering to members interested in each category with a broad array of classes. Fitness classes often take exercises from the fighting ones, and fighters often use the more-fitness focused sessions to help them get in top shape. In both classes, instructors focus on good form above all, making sure students learn healthy, proper ways to perform martial arts moves so that they can sustain an intense workout or compete at their best in the ring, even if "Eye of the Tiger" isn't playing the background.
Of course, that's not to say every class is the same; each session retains its individual focus. The Brazilian jiu-jitsu instructor, for instance, focuses on techniques that he uses to compete in international tournaments. The youth mixed-martial-arts teacher centers instruction around anti-bullying techniques, as well as the principles of discipline, kindness, awareness, and toughness.
As sister bars, The Well and Lew?s Grill & Bar make a perfect pairing for parties. Throughout the year, the bars usually host event parties including St. Patrick's Day, Hop Fest Craft Beer Festival, and New Year's Eve celebrations. The Well's rooftop bar lets patrons relax under the stars as they drink from a selection of more than 30 tap beers and bottled brews. The Well's chef-prepared menu includes plates of elevated bar fare, including char-grilled KC strip steak, baja fish tacos, roasted vegetable ravioli, and black Angus burgers. Das Boot, Lew's signature drink, is an 84-ounce boot-shaped beer that comes with an optional challenge: patrons who can imbibe the full boot, plus 2.5-pounds of cheeseburger and fries, win a free T-shirt and the honor of proving they have a stomach that is bigger on the inside.
Spurred by a drive to instill children with a love for the arts and to build their self-esteem, professional actor Miles McMahon helms an array of educational programs at Theatre of the Imagination. He and his staff of local theater lovers build on more than 2,000 successful children's theatrical productions through creative summer camps, acting and performance classes, special workshops, and birthday parties for performers in prekindergarten through ninth grade. Miles writes a completely new work for each class and camp, using the script to immerse students in a cooperative, creative environment while freeing them from the pressures of lead roles, auditions, and autographer's elbow. Staff members can also conduct Movie Star Acting birthday parties, where they shoot a short film with the birthday child as the star.
