Helmed by two-time Manhattan Open winner Dave Mahoney, the tennis experts at South Bay Tennis Network help players hone their on-court prowess.

Students learn to work toward specific, practical goals in their path to improvement.
At Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy, the instructors relay the teachings of Brazilian jui-jitsu's creator, Helio Gracie, who valued leverage and timing over strength and speed.

Complementing the main program are kids' programs that teach youngsters how to neutralize bullies and women-only classes that show females how to counter 15 common attacks.
Elite Training Center’s chief instructor Brian Rauchbach and his fellow instructors have applied their training in Krav Maga, mixed martial arts, and kickboxing within professional fields such as law enforcement, the US Army Rangers, and the US Navy SEALS.

Beyond the practical aspects of fighting, the studio's instructors put a premium on self-respect, discipline, and the ability to savor a bag of Oreos over an entire month. Students, ranging from kids to police officers, forge inner strength as they pound heavy bags, target pads, and focus mitts.
