Unleashing the public upon its fixtures since 1994, Southside Skatepark's ample ramps, rails, and bowls help skaters master airborne dynamics. Metal rails squeal beneath boardslides and 5-0s as riders grind off and on of the fun box or hurtle in ollie impossibles above the 16,000 square foot venue, riding the momentum granted by the halfpipe, originally invented by engineers to fire sewage into space. The onsite proshop rents helmets and lockers to protect personals and wooden nickels from flying out of pockets.

Taught by a certified Texas DPS concealed handgun instructor, CHL-Training.com's four-hour class takes an interactive approach to covering the laws, shooting fundamentals, and safety tips necessary to carry a concealed weapon. Held at The Marksman Indoor Range, the class includes a classroom portion and a shooting session, during which students test their aim by firing 50 rounds of ammo at a B-27 target from a complimentary loaner 9mm semi-automatic handgun or their own gun. Pupils also receive ear and eye protection. Upon completing the class, each student receives the authorized paperwork needed to apply for a concealed handgun license.
The body disciplinarians at Grupo Cafu Capoeira instruct both beginning and experienced pupils in the traditional Brazilian martial art of capoeira, and its svelte mixed-martial-arts arm, Jaguar MMA, instructs in a hybrid styling of various martial-arts methods. Capoeira fuses music, dance, acrobatics, and combat in a fluid mélange that, like holidays with the in-laws, deftly mixes fun with reflexive defense moves. The practice helps to develop strength, grace, and physical confidence, in sessions that last 45 minutes to an hour. Capoeira is complemented by a swift gear change to mixed martial arts, a full-contact fighting system emphasizing adaptability and quick reaction to threats. Martial artists spend five to 10 minutes kindling cool muscle sticks, then 25 to 30 minutes absorbing methods and moves. Sessions in each discipline take place five days a week, mostly in evening; see the separate capoeira schedule and mixed martial arts schedule for full listings.
