Over his 30-year tenure teaching golf, founder Mark Reason has established Reason's Golf Academy locations in Michigan and Florida to spread the wisdom of his Ferris-wheel-swing technique. This coaching philosophy—designed to build swings that travel on a controlled, vertical axis rather than in a less-dependable merry-go-round motion—serves as the unifying force in all of the academy's instructional programs and as the building block for the development of a consistent, correctable, and windshield-friendly swing. Instructors use golf-simulator and swing-analyzer technology to scrutinize imperfect motions and weighted, molded-grip clubs and other training aids to guide clients toward proper technique. To further optimize patrons' pin-hunting prowess, the Academy offers club-fitting services, which pair clients with the clubs or modified pool noodles that best fit their unique swing profile.

A nonprofit organization, Midwest Freefall Sport Parachute Club aims to instill a love for skydiving in each person who steps into its 17-place Jet-Prop Cessna Grand Caravan, which elevates jumpers to more than 13,000 feet above the southeast Michigan countryside. Tandem jumps allow thrill-seekers to harvest cotton candy from clouds as seasoned instructors take care of dive essentials, including parachute deployment. For those who want to learn more, seven levels of free-fall training transform novices into experienced jumpers who can take solo dives. Before their second jump, skydivers become members of Midwest's club, which hosts social gatherings that debate the merits of traveling down stairs by parachute. Midwest Freefall Sport Parachute Club embraces the standards and procedures established by the United States Parachute Association to help ensure safety during all of its dives.

Master Cindie Lee New and Master Kevin Nilson earned their titles studying at the feet of James Sun Hwan Chung, the Senior Grand Master of Moo Sool Do. Moo Sool Do combines training in the Korean hard martial arts of Tae Kwon Do and Tang Soo Do—both of which focus on striking with the hands and feet—and the joint manipulations and throws of Hap Ki Do, a widely practiced Korean soft art.
Heeding the masters' guidance, the mother and son team of experienced instructors lead students of all ages—from 4 years old to adults—through self-defense classes and a lineup of Korean martial-arts styles. Self-defense classes arm students with the tools to fend off physical assaults and the precision to knock someone's socks off without harming their toes. For those ready to undertake the long-term belt system, New Edge Martial Arts fully tests and certifies attendees age 4 and older in Taekwondo, Tang Soo Do, and for those eligible, Hap Ki Do— where they will learn self-confidence, self-control, and self-defense skills while gaining enhanced strength, agility, and endurance.

The collection of ramps and half pipes inside Landslide Skate Park's 22,000-square-foot indoor skate facility offers a year-round haven for skaters of all skill levels. During private, group, or open-skate lessons, students master the nuances of kick-flips as experienced skaters demonstrate tricks and retired skateboards deliver instructive lectures. The park's foam pit provides a soft, cushy landing for skaters to practice aerial maneuvers without fear of injury, and a slew of private party rooms, flush with snacks and foosball, host birthday celebrations. Serious skaters can purchase top-of-the-line gear and apparel from brands such as Zero, Habitat, and Alien Workshop in the pro shop, or invest in a park membership for discounted access to the park and lessons without having to disguise yourself as Tony Hawk's legal guardian.
