At Sword Martial Arts, Grand Master Jin K. Seong oversees devotees training in the ancient martial art of kendo, or kumdo, a form of sword fighting nearly 2,000 years old. A member of the International Kendo Federation with internationally recognized rankings, Sword Martial Arts ensures student safety by wrapping combatants in protective gear before they spar to hone self-discipline, develop confidence, and learn how to defeat the black knight's ghost in their attic. Though it originated as a form of combat, kendo's modern form focuses on respect for others and protection of the weak. Mook-sang meditation sessions bookend each lesson, focusing minds on the kendo philosophy and bringing pupils closer to the purity of heart most often found in baby unicorns. The academy’s schedule of classes invites neophytes and younger students to drill in foundational techniques, whereas students 15 and older grip the hilt of bamboo or metal swords under the watchful guidance of expert instructors.

Aside from about 20 grams of protein, what do ahi tuna and steak have in common? They’re both black stone items on the menu at The Cambridge Inn. Diners get to step into the role of chef and cook the thick cuts tableside over heated black stones themselves. That experience anchors a staggering menu of new american eats that covers a wide swath of the culinary landscape, from steaks, burgers, and ribs to veal saltimbocca layered with prosciutto and mozzarella. Paired with sandwiches, salads, and more than 20 appetizers, the almost-steakhouse food is served in smaller lunch portions. It’s also incorporated into the Friday night all-you-can-eat prime rib buffet, and the Sunday champagne brunch, complete with an omelet station and a Virginia ham carving station, which is just like any other ham-carving station, only the chef dresses like Edgar Allan Poe.

A dancer since age 6, Dasha Sushko founded Ballroom Dream in 2011 after a successful professional dance career in both Russia and the United States. She and her instructors teach fledgling dancers at ballroom, Latin, and swing classes inside Ballroom Dream’s 4,000-square-foot facility, which features a floating hardwood dance floor. Mirrors help students assess their form during group or private lessons, and on every first and third Friday and fourth Saturday of the month, the studio turns up its professional-grade sound system to let students flaunt their newfound form during social dances. Classes are open to adults as well as kids, who discover dance basics during entertaining classes that help expend youthful energy faster than a feverish baseball-card trading session.

The licensed, experienced staff at Boca Salons Day Spa & Tanning banishes stress and discomfort from organ empires with a kaleidoscope of body-bettering spa services. The 90-minute Boca massage pampers bodies from head to foot with a rubdown that focuses on specific problem areas––such as a habitually sore tennis elbow or ping-pong pinky ($95). For a slimmer, firmer physique, guests can opt for the 60-minute peppermint-sea-twist body wrap, which employs freshly harvested seaweed and peppermint oil to rejuvenate skin, contour the body, and improve aches and water retention ($100). Revamp overworked hands and feet with a classic manicure ($16+) and pedicure ($35+) that polishes digits so they may shine like a disco ball gone supernova.

Dr. Genevieve Fernandes and her tooth-centric staff spiff mouths with a slew of preventative, surgical, and cosmetic services. Zoom! brightens less-than-lustrous chompers in less than an hour, beginning as a clinician shields both lips and gums to protect them from the whitening agent. Zoom! gel then glazes all teeth as the clients reposes beneath a specially engineered light that works in conjunction with the gel to erase surface stains, discoloration, and the adolescent blank-verse poetry of since-evicted wisdom teeth. After the treatment, most mouths can retain snowy façades with regular hygiene and occasional at-home touch-ups.
