At Davis School of Martial Arts, Master Charles Platt and Master Jeri Carson and a team of certified instructors share decades upon decades of wisdom while teaching students four traditional forms of martial arts. One of these forms is traditional karate, wherein circular blocks are used to deflect and control attacks. Another, okinawan kobudo, uses weapons. Aikido, based on a philosophy of harmony and nonviolence, promotes flexibility and inner strength over raw physical force. And where aikido favors defense, aiki-jutsu's similar techniques tend toward offense. No matter the art, though, the staff layer their lessons atop the school’s unchanging pillars of manners, peace, drive, courage, and self-improvement.

Sunlight bounces off the glossy, light-gray floors of The Iron Room. In its expansive, warehouse-like space, resistance equipment waits to be brought to life with a grunt from a motivated student. Certified trainers Roger Downing and Sarah Reeves lead these pupils––no matter their current fitness level––through boot-camp-style classes that use exercises targeting specific muscle groups, which change daily. For example, a workout that focuses on the back includes the use of rings and battle ropes interspersed with high-intensity aerobics. When no class is in session, the students arrive to use the training equipment at their leisure.
