The non-profit New Jersey Fencing Alliance invites people to take a stab at a new hobby?literally. Across the 17,000-square-foot club, nationally- and internationally- recognized coaches teach students the fundamentals of fencing, emphasizing footwork, blade-work, and strategy, all within an environment that is relaxed, but competitive. Students, meanwhile, have a variety of avenues through which to learn, including private lessons, camps, and group classes, where they can practice safely with partners instead of jabbing at beehives at home. In beginner classes, students are taught the fencing fundamentals, with concentration on footwork, blade work, strategy, and technique.

Learning to read, solve math problems, or master any school subject relies on one thing: the brain. With this in mind, the coaches at Learning Solutions eschew traditional tutoring methods that focus on one subject at a time. Instead, they use brain-training games and other mind exercises designed to hone a child's overall cognitive skills. The coaches work with students of all abilities, including gifted children. They also specialize in helping those with ADHD, autism, and dyslexia. LearningRx's team also works with adults and seniors.
