At Sword Martial Arts, Grand Master Jin K. Seong oversees devotees training in the ancient martial art of kendo, or kumdo, a form of sword fighting nearly 2,000 years old. A member of the International Kendo Federation with internationally recognized rankings, Sword Martial Arts ensures student safety by wrapping combatants in protective gear before they spar to hone self-discipline, develop confidence, and learn how to defeat the black knight's ghost in their attic. Though it originated as a form of combat, kendo's modern form focuses on respect for others and protection of the weak. Mook-sang meditation sessions bookend each lesson, focusing minds on the kendo philosophy and bringing pupils closer to the purity of heart most often found in baby unicorns. The academy’s schedule of classes invites neophytes and younger students to drill in foundational techniques, whereas students 15 and older grip the hilt of bamboo or metal swords under the watchful guidance of expert instructors.
In 1977, career educators Eileen and Raymond Huntington opened the first Huntington Learning Center in Oradell, New Jersey. Their mission to give every child the best education possible is still going strong. They use an individualized approach to education, adjusting instructional tactics according to each student?s particular needs.
Due to their success in helping K?12 students prepare for exams and improve grades and study skills, there are currently 260 Huntington franchises open nationwide.
The certified Huntington tutoring staff utilizes testing and rubrics for assessing each child?s skills, academic needs and potential for growth. Tutors note student response to different testing and academic situations to craft a methodology sensitive to each child?s learning style. Teachers adhere to the company?s code of ethics that stresses professionalism and confidentiality, encouraging students to improve grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.
Aside from about 20 grams of protein, what do ahi tuna and steak have in common? They’re both black stone items on the menu at The Cambridge Inn. Diners get to step into the role of chef and cook the thick cuts tableside over heated black stones themselves. That experience anchors a staggering menu of new american eats that covers a wide swath of the culinary landscape, from steaks, burgers, and ribs to veal saltimbocca layered with prosciutto and mozzarella. Paired with sandwiches, salads, and more than 20 appetizers, the almost-steakhouse food is served in smaller lunch portions. It’s also incorporated into the Friday night all-you-can-eat prime rib buffet, and the Sunday champagne brunch, complete with an omelet station and a Virginia ham carving station, which is just like any other ham-carving station, only the chef dresses like Edgar Allan Poe.
Whether parents' goals for their children include academic improvement or advanced extracurricular enrichment, instructors watch over students as they work through difficult math and reading exercises. With expert guidance, young learners build the confidence they need to perform well in school and develop self-sufficiency with homework.
