When you enter Tapout Training Center’s main workout area and turn around, you’ll see a large graffiti mural with the word “tapout” clutched between the talons of a red-eyed bald eagle. The bird reminds everyone why they’re here—to partake in workouts that merge exercise and self-defense. Students can spar in the octagon ring, wrestle in the grappling area, punch and kick hanging bags, or sign up for one of many fitness classes, including boxing, muay thai kickboxing, and jujitsu. Every activity is monitored and motivated by an experienced staff led by Brazilian jujitsu and MMA instructor Frank Colcher, a mixed martial artist who’s been able to break oil paintings over his knee for more than a quarter of a century.
Heal One World empowers people with the knowledge and techniques to help themselves. Through classes, the organization teaches people skills and natural, noninvasive treatments they can use to ameliorate illness and injury and prevent further ailments from arising. Most of these classes impart self-help techniques and are therefore not covered by insurance, so the organization provides them on a sliding scale. Its programs range from yoga and tai chi to acupuncture and Feldenkrais treatments, drawing from ancient, time-tested practices that have often been cast to the wayside by Western culture. Heal One World also maintains a database of care providers who help people from low-income backgrounds attain stability of mind and body.
Yet beyond the individual, Heal One World focuses on strengthening the community. On weekends, it organizes vegan potlucks and film screenings on green opportunities and charity projects, and every May it holds a film, music, and arts festival in order to raise awareness of pressing environmental issues and include the community in artistic endeavors.

Having spent 30 years rehearsing his martial-arts techniques and another 7 competing in professional MMA matches, Joey Alvarado amassed enough know-how to craft his own training style, Combat Kettle-Jitsu. This system blends grappling techniques with kettlebell-weight lifts to condition prospective fighters. Though his methods have now spread to more than 20 countries and his resumé lists black belts, medals, and championships, Alvarado doesn't covet celebrity status. Instead, he and his staff strive to imbue others with the strength to achieve their own personal victories.
During group classes, the team strives to reshape guests with both martial-arts maneuvers and conditioning drills. In addition to men’s spar-centric MMA sessions, they lead women's kickboxing, kettlebell boot camps, and CrossFit sessions. Teachers also helm MMA lessons for children and teens, keeping the youngsters engaged by infusing the session with games rather than wearing Justin Bieber masks. They offer private training for clients who want custom tips on their holds and hooks.
