Crystal Greene began her martial journey at the tender age of 4, studying the art of Seido karate developed by Tadashi Nakamura in 1976. After earning a third-degree black belt, she moved on to other forms of combat such as muay thai. Trips to tournaments in Australia, Japan, and New York helped hone her competitive edge before she settled down to earn her certification to teach kickboxing. Now, Crystal uses her skills and five instructors at Foxy and Fierce Women's Kickboxing to kick women's workouts into high gear while simultaneously grounding them with a practical self-defense education.

Though classes make use of the kicks and punches that comprise each of Crystal's martial arts, they also incorporate elements of Pilates, yoga, and strength conditioning to tone the overall body. Crystal's studio emulates a traditional Japanese dojo, with pristine hardwood floors and a space carefully appointed to enhance concentration with village elders who stand in the corners and whisper "Concentrate."

When instructor Matt Rosas compares surfing to "riding energy from the sun," his words evoke the freedom and carefree attitude that has come to be synonymous with the sport. He hopes to instill that same effervescent feeling in his students and customers at Venice Beach Surf School, where he draws from more than 25 years' experience teaching surfing and standup paddleboarding lessons. In the churning surf and on the white sand beaches of Santa Monica, Venice, Marina del Rey, and four other Southern California beaches, he coaches paddlers in the basics of catching waves, standing, and running over the biggest sand castle on shore. He also arranges rentals of water-sports equipment to let visitors explore the waters on their own.

Founded by Louis Emile, a 28-year instructing veteran who received training from the Los Angeles County Underwater Instructors Association, Swim or Dive combines swimming and scuba lessons under the same roof. Red Cross–certified instructors lead private swimming lessons for students aged 6 months to adults. NAUI-certified instructors helm the scuba classes, guiding pupils aged 10 and older through introductory and full-certification courses offering lifetime certification. Beyond training, Swim or Dive also acts as a lifeguard referral center, training lifeguards in areas such as CPR, first aid, and slow-motion nacho eating before losing them to monitor pool and ocean parties.

Confidence and grace. They're not necessarily qualities that professional dancers are born with, but ones that develop over time. At Amy Lawrence Ballroom Dance, instructors impart these and other skills onto their students to help them grow into a feeling of ownership over dance floor. Their classes can be tailored to anyone's performance needs and abilities, further helping each dancer reach their goals while having a fun and rewarding experience. Learning salsa, swing, waltz, and foxtrot keeps students actively growing, and lessons for spouses-to-be help them live out a dance floor Cinderella story for one night, singing animals not included.

Salsa dancing is an art that relies on cooperation. The owners of LearnSalsa.com take that to heart, collecting an ensemble of talented teachers to lead each of their dancing boot camps. These instructors help as many as 100 students at a time master the basic steps of salsa or bachata. Backed by heart-pumping tunes, they fill entire gymnasiums with the swiveling hips and shuffling steps of aspiring dancers attempting to hone their technique or to build up enough static charge to jump-start a car battery.
