In 2004, Warren Lee was a high-school teacher by day and a muay thai kick-boxing private trainer on the side. But demand for his private lessons grew, and eventually the one-man business blossomed into a full-time combat fitness business. Today, Lee runs Toronto Kickboxing & Muay Thai (TKMT) Academy at three locations, all of which provide friendly atmospheres for students to work up a sweat, shed stress, and learn self-defense. The staff credits its unintimidating and professional attitude with helping to draw an almost even split of male and female students—a rarity in martial-arts gyms.
All three locations feature pristine facilities and include men's and women's changing rooms and individual showers, as well as a boxing ring, grappling mats, thai pads, heavy bags, and an assortment of training equipment. The staff of committed instructors includes Ajahn Amnat Yodkwain, a former professional fighter and muay thai master who has trained in Thailand's combative arts since the age of 7. All of the academy's instructors possess CPR and first-aid certification and participate regularly in professional development. In order to join the team, they must also pass a series of rigorous tests designed to challenge their skills in muay thai, general fitness, and kicking cookie jars off the top shelf.
If you recognize most of the faces on E. Fulcher Group’s website, it’s because the agency has had great success in landing its students jobs in its half a century of training actors and models. Due to its successful alumni and membership in elite talent-agent organizations, the company has been lauded with myriad accolades, including a recommendation from the International Modeling and Talent Association.
Now serving as both an agency and talent school, E. Fulcher Group hosts modelling, acting, and auditioning classes led by industry professionals who’ve had success booking top gigs. The intensive courses span up to six weeks in length, covering basic acting skills, how to be comfortable and natural on camera, and the statistically best cookies to ply casting crews with during auditions. While students are in the school’s training programs, they can audition for any of Fulcher Agency’s open-call casting sessions for commercials, films, music videos, and print ads.
For more than 10 years, Magenta Photo Studio's talented photographers have teamed up with clients to craft custom-fitted photo shoots. Each session starts with a consultation to review the myriad options available for solo portraits, couples, families, and more. Then, clients can create a preferred ambience by selecting background colours and lighting options. Tailored photo shoots give models the chance to pose with props brought from home or from Magenta Studio's costume cache. Following the shoot, photographers are happy to review every pose to ensure satisfaction and to help subjects select shots that can be immortalized on a fleet of products, such as prints, iPhone cases, and home accessories.
Patrons can peruse the homepage gallery for examples of Magenta Photo Studio's moment-capturing prowess, and consult the FAQ page to answer any bunny-ear-related inquiries.
The Toronto Wine & Spirit Festival welcomes the summer season with a weekend of outdoor tastings, featuring more than 40 vendors in the realms of beer, wine, vodka, cider, sake, cocktails, and more. With two one-session tickets ($22 each) to this year's event, you and a guest will get admission to the five-hour session of your choice. Each ticket comes with five drink/food vouchers ($5 total value) and a sampling glass. Lap up libations in the original fermenting cellar of the former Gooderham and Worts Distillery while ignoring the plaintive moans of James Worts's ghost, or delve into delicious dining with a gourmet fare fair at The Boiler House. While taste buds are kept occupied by the slate of savoury drinks and elegant edibles, ears can eat up live music from some of Toronto's local soundsmiths. Throughout the weekend, complimentary seminars will be held on a variety of topics, including spirit selection and wine pairings.
