For more than a decade, The Hitting Zone has helped baseball and softball players hone their slugging skills with top-notch batting cages. Its newly renovated facility includes seven new batting cages, new token machines, professional-quality turf, and enhanced lighting. While three cages devour tokens and spit out speedy pitches, schedule-savvy batters claim one of four regular cages for a designated hour of ball-pummeling against a Cy Young android lookalike.

Like the art of Tae Kwan Do, seventh-degree black belt Grand Master Sang Ho Lee hails from Korea. He's one of the six martial arts Grand Masters and Masters who teach at Lee Brothers Academy?and, as the studio's name suggests, the other five are Lees, too. After watching a bout of their kicks, jabs, and brick-breaking, you'll suspect that a feisty streak runs in the family.
That steak is well counterbalanced by a peaceful side, however. The Lees complement their Tae Kwon Do lessons with lessons in Hap Ki Do, a "soft" martial art in which the practitioner avoids force altogether. Instead, he or she defuses attacks as nonviolently as possible, using joint locks and pressure points to turn the attacker's strength against him. This method is ideal for small fighters taking on bigger opponents, or whale-wrestlers in training.
