During Vince Velez's 20 years of teaching martial arts, he discovered what he believes to be the path to becoming a great martial artist: possessing a desire to be well-rounded and a dedication to learning. To that end, he created Lakewood Martial Arts Training Alliance, where he shares his passion for martial arts with students of all abilities and ages. Starting at age 3, children can begin their journeys toward greatness, learning skills including balance and coordination and values such as discipline and self-confidence.
His adult classes, on the other hand, focus more on shedding pounds, perfecting technique, and defending one's self without bribing a local strong for protection. In Kempo karate, he leads students through the forms, self-defense techniques, and sparring sessions needed to master the art. To help students round out their education, he also offers Brazilian jiu-jitsu, which emphasizes grappling techniques.

From professional athletes to months-old babies, the chiropractors, acupuncturists, and massage therapists at All Pro Health Center use their expertise to maximize wellness and body function. The center is the official sports-medicine and health-care center for both the California Quake women's tackle-football team and the Pacific Warriors women's professional football organization, and resident Doctor of Chiropractic Charles Feng has an extensive background in sports medicine. After training at UCLA as a member of the Bruins' sports-medicine program, Dr. Feng served on the medical teams of both the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Kansas City Chiefs. His voice may sound familiar from the local radio shows in which he discusses developments in the field of sports medicine, such as solar-powered athletic benches that warm themselves.
In addition to chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, and needle-free acupuncture, Dr. Feng and his colleagues treat sports injuries or everyday ailments with a range of manual and high-tech therapies. A certified practitioner performs active-release techniques, a patented soft tissue-based massage system that alleviates pain emanating from overused muscles. The crew also offers relief via physical therapy, kinesiotaping, and cold-laser therapy.
The group dynamic of a boot camp fitness class can help keep classmates motivated. S&J Fitness and Kickboxing takes this concept a step further with its playdate fitness: parents can bring their kids with them to fitness class and drop them off for supervised active play at the company's outdoor jungle gym. Afterwards, the adults can join their own fitness class led by an expert instructor. It's a great way for adults and kids to appreciate fitness, and it's just one of many class offerings at S&J Fitness and Kickboxing. The non-military style boot camp combines the rapid strength-building of boot camps with the techniques and skills of kickboxing. Instructors can also help volleyball athletes and aspiring kangaroo impersonators with vertical jump training.
