Amid the mythical landscapes and thrilling martial-arts battles in the film Mortal Kombat, you might see Richard Branden performing swift punches and mighty kicks as an outland warrior. Richard’s role in Mortal Kombat is just one of his many motion-picture credits, which include a stunt-double role in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and the Yin-Yang Man in WMAC Masters. The internationally renowned warrior has been practicing in martial arts since 1976, earning more than 35 international titles and six gold medals in chinese kung fu. A firm believer in the practice’s ability to enhance discipline and focus, as well as strength and agility, Branden opened Studio Kicks Palo Alto to help students of all ages reap martial arts’ many benefits.

Bright red and blue mats sweep across the floor of the expansive studio, where Branden's staff conduct a variety of combat-centric classes. The trainers lead energetic circuit-training routines and kickboxing combinations in adult fitness classes, helping students improve form and technique as they work toward sliming their physiques and toning their muscles. Youngsters and adults alike can enroll in the martial-arts program, where instructors guide students through movements, techniques, and training exercises that aim to boost power, flexibility, and strength. In addition to improving physical fitness, the program’s curriculum seeks to bolster self-confidence, much like an Armani blazer with the padded shoulders and biceps already sown in.

Boasting more than 40 years of tango experience, Nora Olivera and her husband Edward Neale teach tangoers of all experience levels to synch feet and bodies to buoyant South American rhythms. Born and raised in Argentina, Olivera performs professionally around the world and teaches tango the way Argentines dance it, without swords or samurai garb. During two lessons, students learn to strut the tango's nuanced walks and hold partners in the dance's signature sultry embraces. In one session, dancers will study milonga, a spicy relative of the tango, tapping toes to 2/4 time and while mastering the rhythmic steps.

Recognized in 2008 as one of Bicycle Retailer’s Top 100 Bike Shops in the U.S., The Bike Connection serves all bipedal peddlers looking to buy, rent, or maintain a velocipede. The full tune-up unleashes professionally trained and certified mechanics upon the two-pronged mobile devices, serving up liberal brake and derailleur adjustments, truing crooked wheels, and tightening any loose bolts looking to jump ship. The technicians then free up the crankset’s angular potential with a bottom bracket adjustment, un-break brakes, and shower cranky chains with liberating lubricants. With more than 25 years of bike-tinkering experience, this fully equipped, family-owned bicycle asylum returns aging bicycles to a vigor reminiscent of their training-wheel years.

Emerald Hills Golf Course strings together nine par 3 holes that test short-game proficiency as players use shorter irons to propel their golf balls through course's frequent elevation changes. The sixth hole presents opportunities for holes-in-one with a downhill tee shot of just 120 yards into a bowl-shaped green, easily replicated from a backyard deck into an inflatable swimming pool.

Golfers hoping to shave strokes off their scores can work under the tutelage of the course's certified teaching professional, Chris Raddie. Players can then practice Chris's corrective advice after a lesson or before a round on the two practice greens or midsize practice cage, which can double as a penalty box for prevaricating scorekeepers.

Course at a Glance:

  • 9-hole, par 27 course
  • Total length of 1,156 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 54.2 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 88 from the back tees
  • Two sets of tees per hole

The talented instructors of Nach K Dekh call on years of dance-floor experience to impart the rhythmic gestures, fast footwork, and pulsating energy of Bollywood dance in classes for children, teens, and adults. Weekly classes begin with basic steps, then build on the skills learned in past sessions to help students eventually perform an entire Bollywood number, incorporating lively music and props to entertain the public at a theater or nearby Taj Mahal. Intimate sessions of no more than 12 students allow one-on-one coaching from instructors, helping dancers develop their skills quickly and correctly. For a more sweat-focused session, Nach K Dekh's BollyBurn class challenges participants to high-impact cardio workouts and muscle conditioning set to Bollywood music.
