When he looked past the flourishes of players in the majors, Dylan Gaines realized the swings of professional hitters were nearly identical. Working with pro ballplayers such as Darrell Thomas and Nez Belelo, Dylan honed those swing fundamentals during his stint on the Seattle Mariners. At All-Star Baseball School, he's broken down and distilled these basics into a potent dram of batsmanship for students since 1997. Along with Eric Fischer, a veteran of the Chicago White Sox and Minnesota Twins, Dylan teaches his pupils hitting, pitching, and fielding skills during private lessons and summer camps. After the classes let out, little leaguers can study the greats with an instructional DVD hosted by baseball legend and record holder Pete Rose, who walks viewers through pointers for hitting homers without planting baseballs in the stands beforehand.

Whether working with beginning golfers or birdie collectors, Mark Spinelli draws upon decades of experience to help players improve their skills and mechanics. A self-described historian of the game of golf (and its iconic swings), Mark gleans inspiration from the greats—Bobby Jones, Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus—to perfect his own technique, which he uses to regularly compete in long-drive championships. He starts novices out with skill-appropriate drills, such as the fundamentals of a sound swing and the short game, and helps advanced golfers improve their accuracy so they can land balls on their boss's car more frequently. He shows players how to respond to course variables such as wind, lie, rough, and green speed, particularly through on-the-go adjustments to factors such as grip, putting stroke, and erratic ball patterns.

Clients can also sign up for a loft/lie fitting session with Blind 9’s recently acquired club-fitting equipment, which measures players' current sticks and swing path to determine optimal loft and lie.

A graduate of the Golf Academy of America and current candidate in the PGA Apprentice Program, Andrew Lee calls upon his extensive golf background to help players improve both mentally and physically. Andrew helps beginners make a smooth foray into the game and applies his knowledge to help advanced players improve their skills, deftly incorporating training aids and video-swing technology via an iPad to develop muscle memory. He can teach lessons in both English and Mandarin, which not only broadens his client base but also helps non-native speakers scold their clubs in a language the equipment will understand.

From the emerald valley of Brookside Golf Club's practice facility, Fore Kids Golf Academy’s staff of aces teaches youngsters the very basics of on-course conquests in a fun and positive environment. The golf gurus strive to imbue kids with a sound understanding of golf’s pendulous swing while also teaching them how to set and meet goals of any nature, such as growing up to be a contributing member of society or scientifically proving that all golf balls are descendants of the moon. The academy offers one-week camps throughout the summer, Saturday clinics, and private lessons. Most clinics involve both range practice and on-course play, as well as video swing analysis, which provides students with a visual aid to help them understand swing advice and identify their sand wedge’s bad side.

Helmed by professor and capoeira expert Muito Tempo, Capoeira Batuque Pasadena fills with the rhythms that drive the fast-paced sport. In group classes, instructors introduce the fundamentals of capoeira, which fuses the moves of martial arts, the rhythmic and collaborative elements of dance, and the circular formation of Duck, Duck, Goose into a vibrant and aerobic form of exercise. Classes consist of two participants dancing around each other in the middle of the circle, exchanging movements of attack and defense in a frenzied but controlled flow. The classes maintain their lively pace by fueling the acrobatic movements with music heavy in complex, quick polyrhythms played on a range of traditional percussion instruments.
