Master Hong of Family Tae Kwon Do urges his students to "always learn to be teachable." This philosophy of respect underlies the school's entire martial-arts curriculum, weaving lessons on leadership skills in between those on launching self-defense strikes. From the 4-year-olds in the Little Dragons program to the adults in a weapons-training course, every pupil works to improve their character as they practice their kicks. The school's supportive class atmosphere draws entire families to the mat for its age-specific programs. Parent and child can earn successive belt colors in karate, kickboxing, and tae kwon do under the same roof, or recruit the staff for a birthday party where every guest gets to break a wooden board instead of besting a piñata in hand-to-hand combat.
Master Lu has honed his understanding of energy imbalances in the course of more than 40 years' worth of Chinese acupuncture and martial-arts practice. His finely tuned needlework, which garnered him a spot on City Weekly's Best of Utah 2010 list, can be effectively employed to quell a variety of chronic problems, from headaches to addictive behaviors. Treatments can also help to alleviate insomnia or the depression that so often stems from painting watercolor self-portraits using only your tears.
At Master Kwon's World Class Tae Kwon Do, Grand Master and seventh-degree black belt Jin Yong Kwon imparts more than a quarter-century of tae kwon do wisdom in lessons for participants of all ages. Through tae kwon do training, pupils develop technical martial-arts skills while seeking to build traits such as self-control, respect, and confidence that carry over into other facets of life.
Could you survive a zombie apocalypse? Zombie Apocalypse’s haunted house dares guests to live out this scenario trapped inside the XSI Factory, where haunted scenes tests their mettle against the unrelenting forces of diseased, flesh-hungry corpses. In this interactive setting—designed by professional set crews and manned by gorily outfitted actors—guests put their survival skills to the test to see if they can get past the hoards of the undead who crave nothing but your brains or the unlimited borrowing privileges for your Encyclopaedia Britannica collection. The set design and zombies' costumes and makeup realistically immerse guests into the terror, and they are also encouraged to dress up and do their best zombie impressions. To avoid the long lines, clients can purchase fast-pass tickets or opt for the VIP package to get mauled within the sinister scenes faster.
A trio of black-belted Moras sisters lead the diverse fitness curriculum at Amys Martial Arts. Melany, Amely, and Samy blend the disciplined technique they’ve displayed in national, collegiate, and international martial-arts competitions with coaching and referee experience as they teach students aged 3 and older. Children's tae-kwon-do classes develop motor skills, balance, and a positive attitude, and tumbling sessions develop the sense of balance needed to roll, cartwheel, and handspring. Adults can explore the physical and mental benefits of tae kwon do's full-body workout or jump-start their heart rate with kickboxing, Zumba, or imagining how they’d use tae kwon do to fend off a pack of wild rabbits.
