  • Marin MMA
    Mikyo Riggs began his martial arts training in 1990, instantly drawn to freestyle fighting before the world knew it as mixed martial arts. In his quest to become the best fighter he could, he studied boxing, muay thai, and enshin karate, and earned a black belt from Ralph Gracie in the grappling art of Gracie Jiu-jitsu. Eventually, though, he realized he didn't want to just use these techniques in the ring, he wanted to help others along the path he'd followed. So, he founded Marin Mixed Martial Arts in 2006. Today, his school teaches students of all ages a wide range of martial arts—exactly the way Mikyo himself learned. Alongside Jiu-jitsu they teach muay thai kickboxing, kali stick fighting, wrestling, and a women-specific Jiu-jitsu and self-defense class. Yet no matter the class, the staff applies a simple, singular core value: 100% technique. They believe that more than strength or speed, practice always wins, so they encourage their students to bring discipline and focus to their training. Students have responded positively, voting the studio the Best Martial Arts School four times, most recently in the Pacific Sun's 2013 Reader's Choice Awards.

  • Art Social San Francisco
    During three-hour classes at Art Social, instructors strive to foster an environment as lively as the paintings that inspire them. At various restaurants, wine bars, or galleries across the Bay Area, students begin the evening chatting with classmates against the backdrop of soft music and clinking wine glasses. Once students have settled into their personal painting stations, instructors delve into history, context, and scratch 'n' sniff features of the evening's chosen painting, which has included works such as Gustav Klimt's The Kiss or Van Gogh's Starry Night. Step-by-step instruction ensures students of all levels take home a personal masterpiece, whether it is a replica of the painting being taught or the bowls of fruit that haunt the student's mind.

  • Tamara Wolfson, MS, LAc
    Bee venom doesn't sound like a medicinal substance, but to alternative practitioners such as licensed acupuncturist Tamara Wolfson, it's a cocktail of healing compounds. Going back as early as at least 3,000 BC, ancient Greek, Egyptian, and Chinese doctors used the venom—known as apitherapy—along with honey, royal jelly, pollen, and beeswax to treat ailments that ranged from arthritis to multiple sclerosis. Today, the method of using bee venom is sometimes called "nature's Botox" and has even earned attention from mainstream publications such as Allure magazine. Practicing inside Living Medicines Holistic Center, Tamara integrates various hive-sourced substances into her therapies, which include community and private acupuncture, diet consultations, and herb therapy. She also posts resources for clients to use at home, such as tips for creating a holistic medicine cabinet or an entirely edible fort.
