Striving to instruct students not only in the martial arts, but also in valuable life lessons—such as discipline, respect, and focus—the instructors of Master Coleman's Lion Force Martial Arts welcome pupils as young as 4 years old to their classes. Kids can learn important self-defense skills during 30 and 40-minute karate classes, while those 17 or older can enroll in kickboxing classes to further develop under-the-table-shin-kicking skills.
Master Pagano, the titular instructor at Master Pagano's Red Dragon Martial Arts, directs students of all ages and skill levels on the path to martial-arts mastery. He teaches simple hand-eye coordination exercises for 4-year-olds all the way to full MMA lessons for adults. In his Little Champions classes, he works to arm his youngest attendees with motor skills, listening skills, and self-confidence. As these abilities burgeon, he introduces more self-defense techniques and invites parents and children to train together in family-style classes. Once a student reaches 16 years of age, he ushers them into kickboxing and MMA classes, a mixture of fitness and advanced combat techniques. He teaches class six days a week, reserving only Sundays for rest and Friday nights for seminars or birthday parties, at which kids break piñatas with only their cold, hard stares.
Third-degree black belt and instructor Gary Quillen was once a regular 12-year-old boy. Today, he can leap into the air and perform a dazzling horizontal split kick. This feat requires immense athletic prowess. But that physical strength means nothing without the equally immense mental strength behind it. The importance of mind over muscle informs Gary's approach to teaching his Korean martial-arts and fitness classes. He has designed each of his classes to teach novice practitioners how to defend themselves with deft, powerful techniques, but also to develop their confidence, respect, and self-control in order to minimize the chance they'll ever need to.
Ramsey’s Farm is Delaware’s most aesthetically ascendant pumpkin-dotted prairie, welcoming seasonal family outings and Halloween spirit-summoning sessions. Your Groupon is good for admission for two to the autumnal expanse. Once inside, browse the more-than-10-acre pumpkin patch for a perfectly ovoid jack-o’-lantern canvas, or try to collect all eight different varieties of pumpkin that the farm offers, which, once arranged in a perfect half-circle, reveal the answers to the following evening’s Jeopardy episode. After you’ve found the perfect combination of holiday gourds, hop onto a human-moving tractor for a halcyon hayride through the scenic Brandywine River Valley. Next, test your spatial senses and biological compass with a trip through an eight-acre corn maze, replete with in-maze educational opportunities that cover modern farming, local agriculture, and the hibernation schedules of the area's anthropomorphic mole population. Tykes looking to conquer something other than confusingly arranged cornstalks can explore a bale maze for hay-strewn, investigative excitement.
