Affiliates of the NHL's Anaheim Ducks, the Syracuse Crunch has its second-half sights set on moving up the East Division standings and into the AHL playoffs. Cheer as left-wingers Nicolas Deschamps and Patrick Maroon cross-check opponents, hypnotically skate around mesmerized defenders, and drain three-pointers from center ice. With sharp blades and even sharper puck-manipulating capabilities, the Crunch look to give first-year head coach Mark Holick a successful inaugural campaign. From Oncenter War Memorial Arena's ice-level, Crunch Club, or lower mezzanine-level seats, fans can witness every glove-save at while reading the baroque poems that players write while in the penalty box.
Established in 1988, FIST Mixed Martial Arts offers a potent puree of several styles, including Krav Maga, kung fu, kickboxing, and Jiu-Jitsu, in its curriculum. Throughout the lessons, the school's instructors emphasize self-confidence, discipline, balance, and how a well-delivered high kick can get any malfunctioning jukebox working again. FIST's top priority is the safety of its students, meaning all engagements are closely monitored and students must wear the proper safety equipment. Each class is an hour long, with courses open to martial artists of all ages and abilities. There are classes specifically designed for children (ages 5–7), youth (ages 8–12), and adults (ages 12+), as well as general fitness classes. Check the schedule for upcoming course options.
Aventura Mixed Martial Arts goes about business as though its staff and students are one big family. The facility was built around a culture of fitness, performance, and endurance, and the idea that martial-arts training binds people together—like a family. That concept carries through to each of AMMA’s programs, including one program designed for kids as young as 3 years old. Aside from its training curriculum, the facility also offers group classes that are equal parts fun and challenging.
