Q&A with Dan, Owner and Trainer

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?

As a boxing trainer, I saw so many individuals who wanted desperately to obtain the benefits from a boxing/kickboxing workout, but had that look in their eyes when they saw the facility. [They] loved the equipment, but were anxious about working out with boxers?not really knowing what to do and how to do it, as boxing is not a structured workout. Did I mention the contact that goes along with boxing?getting hit? With this in mind, I looked for models that would be enticing to this demographic and allow everyone to enjoy the unbelievable benefits of boxing: learning real self-defense [skills]\ while shedding pounds, toning muscles, and building functional strength and agility.

What special training do you or your staff have?

We have a background in boxing and Golden Glove fighters and trainers. In boxing, it's not just learning the skills, but learning how to obtain peak conditioning and strength for a real-life battle.

What is the experience customers can expect, and how do you make it special?

You can expect to have fun and and learn a skill. The atmosphere is welcoming and the people are energetic. Weight-loss, strength, agility, and cardio are just the side effects from learning. That leads to a fun workout.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

Our website and Facebook have videos and a great deal of more information.

Make no mistake about it: one of Gracie Barra Veneration's chief goals is to help students defend themselves in hand-to-hand combat. That's why the studio specializes in Brazilian jujitsu, a martial art that focuses on grappling in close quarters. But there's another, equally important lesson that the instructors hope to impart. The same qualities that make one an effective fighter—discipline, creativity, and self-confidence—are just as useful in other aspects of life, such as work and relationships. The studio strives to instill these qualities in each student, one takedown at a time.

Refreshing zephyrs glide off freshwater lochs and onto SkipperBud's, an all-purpose marina on the shores of Lake Mendota. New and used boats from high-end brands such as Starcraft and Sea Ray bob beside the sprawling facilities, where savvy salespeople bring decades of know-how to the 40-year-old company. Engine parts, safety tackle, and watersports equipment are also on hand, as are adept boat mechanics trained to tinker on most boat models and engine types. Indoor storage facilities fend off the icy barks of Old Man Winter, and, in the summer, make for easy access to Lake Mendota's launch points.
