For the instructors at Blacklist Martial Arts & Fitness, learning martial arts is just as much about building community leadership skills as it is about punching and kicking. Committing to this belief, they train students of all ages and experience levels in classes held from morning to night. These programs introduce the range of Brazilian jiu jitsu, muay Thai kickboxing, and submission wrestling techniques—the diversity of skills imparted ensures students don't also have to test which ones their in-laws know. For students 14 years and younger, the studio offers Skillz: a martial arts curriculum for children further attesting to the studio's ability to accommodate a variety of clients.

Blacklist's coaching team is helmed by Brazilian jiu jitsu black-belt Tim Credeur, whose dedication to his craft earned him the nickname "Crazy." He isn't the only dedicated one—all of Blacklist's instructors have competed in gi and no-gi jiu jitsu grappling events, and some in professional kickboxing and MMA tournaments. To instill their passion in students, they allow Blacklist's most experienced trainees to represent the gym at MMA events. They also empower top students to lead some of the studio's classes.

Cleaved into a verdant expanse populated with 20-year-old cypress trees and 17 tranquil ponds, Cypress Lakes Country Club’s 18-hole course tumbles across 6,556 yards of challenging tee-to-green terrain. Waterways and wetlands complicate play on virtually every hole throughout the pristine par 72, giving advantage to players who can confidently select the right club to clear a forced carry or bribe gullible waterfowl to extract their sunken balls. Well-manicured bermuda grass supplies eminent playability to both the fairways and the greens, which at times appear as narrow landing strips in a course populated by so much water. By the end of the round, linksmen become callous to water’s intimidating ripples, allowing them to trace a towering drive over the aquatic forced carry that stands in front of the 18th tee, setting up a second shot that could allow players to tap in for a stunning birdie or three-putt for a breathtaking double bogey to conclude the round with dramatic flair.

In the world of golf, few acronyms are held in the same regard as TPC. Comprising 32 PGA-level venues, the Tournament Players Club network stretches from coast to coast, hosting high-profile pro and senior tour events throughout the year with TPC Sawgrass even serving as the headquarters for the PGA itself. As the Big Easy's contribution to the lineup and a member of the faction that happen to be open to the public, TPC Louisiana does not disappoint. Pete Dye's 2004 design choreographs cypress and oak trees, five ponds, and more than 100 bunkers over 250 acres of the Mississippi River delta. As the permanent home of the PGA Tour’s annual Zurich Classic, the course is, of course, exceptionally long from the back tees––7,400 yards––but furnishes four additional sets of tees to make things easier on amateurs who refuse to cork their drivers.

As with all TPC venues, golf is but a part of the experience. Inside the 24,000 square-foot clubhouse, The TPC Grill couples southern hospitality with an ambiance of relaxed elegance, while luxury lockers provide a place for players to stash their Bourbon Street beads before teeing up on the course.

Grand Master Tommy Cheng comes to New Orleans by way of Hong Kong and brings more than 60 years of martial-arts knowledge. At NOLA Kung Fu with Sifu Tommy, his specialty is kung fu with a strong tai-chi influence. The gym has four convenient locations, and each offers a flexible schedule of classes. Beginners can hone form, more advanced fighters can increase agility, and they all can more readily defend themselves against armed opponents or aggressive kangaroos.
