The dedicated instructors at Kids Love Martial Arts teach children the techniques of self-defense styles such as karate and tang soo do. But they are just as focused on imparting lessons on discipline, focus, and confidence. The studio's websites shares stories of youngsters who were constantly distracted in school or picked on by their peers. The teachers always prescribe the same medicine: a few weeks in Kids Love Martial Arts classes. The physical aspect of the training engages the youthful participants, but it's the less tangible results that can help them positively channel their energy and confidently stare down the karate-practicing monster under the bed.

The teachers at School for Fishes know that swimming isn't just a physical skill—for many, it means conquering a fear of the water or finding the focus to improve a favorite stroke. To address both the mental and bodily aspects of the sport, the staff channels their backgrounds in teaching and therapy. Their learning environment is just as warm as their 90-degree pool, and their lessons accommodate the full spectrum of skill levels, from students with deep-seated phobias to competitive athletes. Mommy and Me classes acclimate infants to the water with leisurely activities, such as blowing bubbles and enunciating "cannonball," whereas private and semiprivate lessons enhance aquatic abilities in swimmers of all ages. Instructors can also guide patrons with special needs through custom programs to build comfort and confidence.
