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.

Taught by a certified Texas DPS concealed handgun instructor, CHL-Training.com's 10-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 purchase those rounds from the range, where they also receive ear and eye protection and complementary refreshments. Upon completing the class, each student's required paperwork is notarized free of charge so it can be used to apply for a concealed handgun license.

It takes all of your wits to dodge paintballs while still gaining on your competitors, so the last thing you should be worrying about is where your next footstep will fall. That’s why Xplosive Indoor Paintball Arena negates the dangers of clod-filled fields and sock-soaking streams with an indoor paintball arena designed to keep players focused on the game rather than their surroundings or on-looking spirits of the forest. Each arena admission comes with all the equipment and air refills needed for play, with à la carte options available for those who already own their own gear. Outside the arena, TVs broadcast the news and paintball tips, and concession-stand staff members dish out snacks for those regaining their strength for another bout.
