Alan Predolin, chief instructor of 360 Krav Maga, doesn't pull any punches, unless he's clipping knees, poking throats, and disabling solar plexuses. Already trained in the martial arts by the age of 7, Alan first got a thirst for reality-based, applicable combat techniques when he was a teenage member of the Guardian Angels. While most kids his age were fighting pimples, Alan was fighting gang members and drug dealers in Hell's Kitchen and the South Bronx. When he was 21, the Italian Army sent Alan to Israel, where he discovered the self-defense art of krav maga and spent his years mastering and sharing its effective techniques.
Years later, Alan has become the guy that local and federal law-enforcement and military units flock to for teaching their recruits the art of quick self-defense. At the 360 Krav Magna schools—the only schools in Tustin, Long Beach, Los Angeles, and Orange County to be certified by Krav Maga Global of Israel—Alan's team of certified instructors instill students with the smarts to disarm and disable any viable threat at instinct speed. For those looking for a muscle-sculpting, fat-burning workouts with less eye-poking, 360 Krav Magna's instructors also specialize in intensive kickboxing classes that merge fitness and combat training.

Gabriel Hall, owner of Yoga World Studios, discovered yoga at the age of 19 while pursuing his degree in philosophy. Dr. Allen Arnette—already the clinical director of the Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Department—began studying yoga as a way of researching the role mental well-being plays in healing physical ailments. Katherine Ostrout studied dance science at Cal State Long Beach and turned to Pilates after a ballet injury laid her low. These three weave their diverse backgrounds into the rich tapestry of talent made up by Yoga World’s team of yogis.
Having studied extensively in particular schools of yoga, instructors bring their individual training into the studio, focusing on disciplines that range from the physically challenging to mentally reflective, and include Iyengar, Ashtanga, Viniyoga, and Anusara. In addition to their regular yoga lessons, the Yoga World team also leads mat-Pilates classes, workshops, and private instruction. They use the art of yoga for healing in one-on-one sessions of Thai yoga therapy, which blends shiatsu massage with acupressure, or they coordinate beachside retreats full of yoga, surfing, and yoga-surfing.
