Most Popular Attraction/Offering: Martial arts classes
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.
Gotham Dream Cars lets drivers grip the throttle of exotic speed machines such as the Ferrari F430, Lamborghini Gallardo, and Bentley Continental GT for personal rental or specialized thrill experiences. During the Dream Car Sprint, auto enthusiasts slip into a Ferrari or Lamborghini on a closed course and whip their more than 500-horsepower drive three times around the autocross track, learning how to tame their power with the aid of an instructor before coming out of the third lap on a straightaway to open the engine up to its full potential. Drivers conduct an orchestra of firing pistons and camshafts for three laps before crossing the finish line and parking to the pianissimo of the softly purring V8 engine. Gotham Dream Cars snaps pictures of the sprint, so drivers are sent home with hands they will never wash and a CD of images to parade before jealous coworkers and humbled shopping carts.
