Q&A with Allan, Owner/Chief Instructor

Apart from your business's main attraction, do you offer any "hidden" services or activities that visitors are always delighted to learn about?
We also offer private lessons for those interested in receiving individualized instruction.

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
While I was growing up, I dealt with bullying issues. Martial arts gave me the confidence to defend myself—without ever having to fight. I no longer looked like a victim, and was no longer too shy to talk to anyone. I made more friends and quickly let bullies know I was not going to be a willing victim. As I entered college, I knew that I wanted to help people feel more confident, deal with bullies, and just be able to enjoy life more.

As the old adage says, "Stuff happens." What training do you and your staff have to stay ahead of the unexpected?
Our instructors constantly receive training at the dojo. As the head instructor, I am always going to seminars to learn new teaching and martial arts techniques. This helps me provide the safest and most effective learning environment possible.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Mixed martial arts is not just about learning how to punch and kick and beat up the bad guy. It's about learning to believe in yourself, feeling better about who you are, and treating yourself the right way by eating and sleeping well. It's also about increasing your discipline, focus, and confidence. You will have fun in our classes and be in the best shape of your life while learning how to defend yourself.

Perhaps it’s their diverse backgrounds—a former D1 college assistant baseball coach with a master's in physical education, a sports-psychology counselor and fitness trainer, and an amateur baseball leaguer—that make the coaches at Pitch by Pitch All Sports Camps open to such a wide variety of athletics. Their weeklong camps embody everything from baseball, soccer, and tennis to less regimented sports such as floor hockey and Capture the Flag. Through drills, games, and relays, coaches teach young campers how to command the field with confidence, while still displaying good sportsmanship. And since it all happens at Congers Lake Memorial Park, full-day campers can spend their lunch breaks swimming in the community pool, playing in the game room, or fishing for their lunch in the lake itself.

Staying indoors is fun at Kids Play, where youngsters can run, bounce, swing, and tumble through a variety of play areas. In the sports area, kids practice their kicks with soccer nets or fine-tune their jump shots with a basketball instead of their sister's porcelain teapot. Moonwalks and bounce castles provide a safe place for jumping, while mats offer a soft place to somersault. Kids can also play pretend on an indoor sandy beach or in a play kitchen.

A joint venture between a professional boxer and a team of successful kickboxing-equipment tycoons, TITLE Boxing Club maintains a network of over 100 locations spread across 33 different states, winning over a devoted clientele with its invigorating and engaging boxing- and kickboxing-themed classes. Each workout uses the heart-healthy exercise of cardio training to satisfy people’s innate desire to punch and kick something other than a broken jukebox. Participants build lean, strong muscle tissue by delivering powerful blows to punching bags, and build flexibility and agility by practicing roundhouse kicks and hooks. Students can build their core strength and endurance with medicine balls and burpees, enlist a qualified personal trainer to practice their newfound skills in the ring, or just torch calories during intense full-body Power Hour workouts.
