UNITED Tae Kwon Do's group classes aren't really about punching and kicking. Sure, students work to master self-defense techniques, but they also focus on topics such as confidence and respect. The conditioning and reaction drills also help to build lean muscle and serve as an effective form of stress management. In this way, UNITED Tae Kwon Do's sessions benefit all types of students, whether they're kids or adults, beginners or more seasoned martial artists. The trained instructors also teach private lessons that adhere to personal goals, such as preparing a student for an upcoming black belt test.

These programs didn't develop overnight. UNITED Tae Kwon Do has been honing them for more than three decades, long before martial-arts uniforms became a red-carpet fashion trend. The educators have expanded into multiple locations throughout the Houston area and show no signs of stopping.

Part color-powder fight and part animal-themed 5K, the Jungle Fever 5K Colorful Run For Your Life Series brings runners of all ages together for a morning of relaxed and fun racing. Volunteer "animals" surprise runners with splashes of color as they leisurely make their way through an untimed 5K race. Outlandish outfits are encouraged—either wild animal-themed outfits or all-white clothing. The whole affair ends in a colorful splash as runners lob handfuls of colored powder at one another in a color fight.

As the indoor swimming arm of the Gigglin Marlin Divers and Swim School scuba-diving school—recently named Houston's best by the Houston Press—Gigglin Marlin Divers and Swim School entices water persons with a saltwater pool of titanic proportions. The facility's 75-foot long, up to 15-foot deep heated saltwater pool plays host to a crowded schedule of activities. The watery fun includes swim instruction for those less than 1 year old as well as adults. Regular times are also set aside for lap swimmers and indoor scuba sessions in which divers explore the saltwater pool's mysterious depths.

From toddlerhood, kids are admonished for jumping on the furniture, though at Planet Wow it would be considered poor manners to abstain. Within an indoor labyrinth of inflatable playthings, children scuttle from a colorful bounce house to an inflatable ladder, which grants access to a slide large enough to accommodate multiple kids. The squishy playground opens up into a game room loaded with air hockey and arcade games, where birthday partygoers celebrate between bites of cake and reenactments of Buzz Aldrin’s first space cartwheel in the main play area.

Players on Got'cha Paintball's outdoor battlefields go to great lengths to avoid paint. Weaving in and out of buildings—not to mention diving behind barrels and stacks of tires—is all part of the game on two outdoor village fields. Games are equally intense on Got'cha's outdoor airfield, where inflatable obstacles shield participants from opponent fire. Trained referees watch over every bout as mask-clad participants fling paintballs at other players or museum curators stealing paint-splattered grass to show in their latest exhibition.
