The Oriental Martial Arts College (OMAC), founded by Sr. Grand Master Joon P. Choi– a 10th Degree Black Belt in Taekwondo– has been teaching the Moogong-Ryu system of martial arts since 1963. All of the dojang's instructors must know Korean martial arts in order to make classes accessible to as many people as possible. OMAC's classes range from Little Tigers (ages 3–6) classes for kids and youth (7+), taekwondo, hapkido, gumdo, fitness and healing arts like power tai chi, action yoga and kimoodo healing art, to advanced black belt training with Grandmaster Choi throughout their multiple Central Ohio locations. OMAC has more than 35 branches worldwide.

Shawn Augustson's path to golf was not a typical one: he served in the US Army for nearly a decade, and the injuries he incurred while serving in Iraq led him to the game. After picking up a club for the first time during his rehabilitation, Shawn turned his new-found passion into a career. At the College of Golf in Port Satin Lucie, Fl., he learned from some of the country's top instructors and PGA professionals while earning his degree. Today, sporting certification as an Impact Zone player, Shawn shares his wisdom with students during lessons at Weschester Golf Course.

Motorcycles have long played a crucial role in the American mythos. The vroom of a twin-cylinder engine conjures images of Evel Knievel soaring through the sky on a daredevil jump or James Dean perched astride his 1955 Triumph Trophy, clad in a black leather jacket and brimming with smoldering angst. Even those who haven't felt their hands on the throttle can appreciate the motorcycle as an all-American icon of freedom, rebellion, and individuality.

The Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum celebrates this iconography with exhibits that pay tribute to every aspect of motorcycling history. The museum's permanent collection is chock-full of memorabilia and ephemera from the early days of motorcycling, such as a Roper Steamer from 1894 and a turbo-powered penny-farthing from the same era. Visitors can also tour the Hall of Fame itself, a main-floor exhibition that celebrates the heroes of the racetrack and blacktop.

For generations, the Pfeifer family tilled the soil—originally tending to the land as Midwestern farmers after the Civil War. Even though the family eventually traded in the farm, these agricultural roots still run deep. At Hidden Lakes Winery, they tap into this instinctual knowledge of fruits and cultivars to create a host of wines made from grapes sourced from around the United States. Glasses of light riesling or heady pinot noir in hand, guests often pair their sips with the onsite café’s bistro-style cuisine. There, the kitchen boasts a full menu of Tuscan-inspired appetizers, artisanal pizzas, entrees, and desserts.

It'd be perfectly possible to visit Rule 3 every day for a week and never repeat the same activity. A 14-lane bowling alley sits at the core of this entertainment emporium, right next to a scaled-down bowling area with smaller balls and shorter lanes for kids. But bowling is just the beginning at Rule 3. The arcade here is an 8-bit dream come true, hosting no fewer than seven Pac-Man machines.

A half-acre backyard area extends the good times outdoors, with sand-volleyball courts, picnic tables, corn hole, and live music throughout the summer. Of course, all these activities require energy, which is why Rule 3 dishes out all-natural burgers and homemade pizzas..
