In its more than two decades of existence, East Coast Martial Arts has produced more than 100 black belts in tae kwon do, including one 4th-dan black belt master. This should come as no surprise, given its leader Master Portante's status as a 6th-dan black belt. To achieve this, the school starts young, training children from age 4 through adulthood in age-appropriate classes that build strength and confidence using the ancient Korean art of tae kwon do, as well as the hands-on fighting style of hapkido.

Palisades Climb Adventure presented by WonderWorks lays claim to the title of the world's tallest indoor ropes course, and you might not feel like arguing with them when you're 85 feet above the ground. Guests traverse 75 different obstacles that test the climber's mettle, whether they're trying to balance while walking across tremor bridges, maintain their grip on the rope ladder, or fight back the urge to eat the alternating spaghetti handline. Once an adventurer is buckled into the safety harness, they can leap, totter, and dangle through the entire course with the option to leave at any time. The only requirements are a minimum height of 3'6" and a maximum weight of 300 pounds.
