Ever since she started teaching karate to kids and adults at A.F.A Karate in 1992, fourth-degree black belt Roseann Fusco has preached one main belief of the martial art—that beyond punches and kicks, karate is about improving oneself in all possible ways. Under the wings of the school's seasoned faculty, students work towards this while honing fundamental karate traits, such as self-defense, stress-reduction, and confidence-boosting. Despite the name, the martial-arts studio doesn't just teach karate. Fusco and her staff also schedule karate weapons and sparring lessons, all of which can help pupils improve their overall fitness.

A crack rings out from the jousting arena as armored knights clash in the pursuit of honor, while sword-swallowers thrill crowds with their death-defying art, jesters spin windy jokes, and townspeople in 15th-century garb roam the grounds tearing into turkey legs with their teeth. The Connecticut Renaissance Faire hosts these medieval-theme blowouts every year, including the Robin Hood Spring Festival and King Arthur’s Fall Harvest Faire. Under the themed umbrella of each gathering, actors caper about a constructed medieval village, engaging in Old English–flavored conversation and clapping games with fair-goers. In a tented marketplace, vendors sell beaded crafts, art, and tyrannical-king repellent alongside stands serving mead, beer, and other satisfying sundries. Although the shows and events vary at each fair, past spectacles have included archery displays, pub sing-alongs, and costume parades.
