Captain Doug loves catching striped bass. Sometimes, he even breaks out a fly-fishing rig to intensify the fight, a practice that would soon deplete the strength of lesser fishermen. But with more than a decade of learning the patterns of striped bass, Captain Doug knows how to find, hook, not get eaten by, and coach clients through landing one of these freshwater leviathans. Now part of the pro staff at Champion Boats, he takes parties out on his 24 Bay Champ boat, supplying anglers with all the equipment they need. Also an enthusiastic trout fisherman, Captain Doug can take anglers out on the Chattahoochee River, or all the way to the Rocky Mountains to catch trophy rainbow, cutthroat, and brown trout in the Snake River and the Green River. Especially memorable catches earn a place in the captain's heart, as well as in his photo album.
Bringing ancient arts into the modern world, Go2Taekwondo is a website that connects people around the world with reputable taekwondo schools in their communities. For women, taekwondo does double duty as a confidence-building fitness regime and teaching effective self-defense moves. Martial arts classes for men help them not only hone fighting technique, but also reduce stress and drop pounds working toward stronger bodies. The website also helps parents connect with schools in their area for children's instruction. Users simply enter their location information and the style of martial arts they're interested in, and the website delivers a bounty of schools conveniently located nearby, many with a class schedule and recent event listings.
Kinetic Prototype's trainers believe the difference between an average athletic performance and an outstanding one is found in the player's movements. In each fitness-training session, they focus on exercises that have particular benefits in the sports and positions their clients play. Swimmers can sharpen their breaststrokes through body-resistance exercises and endurance training, and softball catchers can put extra oomph in their home-base throws with strength-training regimens.
Though World Mission Athletics does promote the martial art as a means of self-defense, its classes feature a wealth of other benefits. Often with physical strength and dexterity comes mental acuity, commitment, leadership skills, and the confidence necessary for opening pickle jars by yourself. The class schedule welcomes everyone from Little Dragons (ages 4–6) to adults.
