Climbing indoors is nothing like traversing a vertical sea of mutated jungle-gym obstacles. Cleveland Rock Gym’s walls are covered with textured surfaces and challenging formations that will provide you with a calf-toning workout, so make sure to bring every baby whale you can find. More importantly, you’ll be in a safe environment where you can safely practice moves that will put public menace Spider-Man to shame. The introduction to climbing class will introduce you to the basics of wall ascension, so you’ll be climbing through indentions, protrusions, overhangs, underhangs, and cracks in no time.
The dance instructors at Alpha Dance Studio know a thing or two about how to move gracefully. That's because each of them have more than 10 years of teaching experience, with some boasting more than two decades of dancing with wins at competitions. They use that wide expertise to teach their students how to masterfully salsa, mambo, and swing—whatever their proficiency level—during private and group lessons. Additionally, anyone hoping to win Best Dancer at their own wedding may also benefit from the group's wedding-specific dance lessons.
With its hardwood floors and brick walls, Title Boxing Club could be a cozy living room—it weren't for the rows upon rows of punching bags. The fitness center's group workouts focus on boxing and kickboxing; boxing sessions hinge on a series of three-minute bag rounds, and kickboxing sessions cover classic maneuvers, including roundhouses and back kicks. Personal-training sessions offer more one-on-one attention, with workouts tailored to the client's individual needs.
The grappling fighting style known as jujitsu first came to Brazil in 1914 stored in the hands and mind of Mitsuyo Maeda, a Japanese immigrant and master of the art. He only stayed a year, but it was enough time to plant the seeds for a new jujitsu academy in Brazil. One of the first students at that academy was Hélio Gracie.
Hélio absorbed the fighting style quickly, adapting many of the techniques to suit his small frame. He discovered methods of leverage that allowed him to execute joint locks, choke holds, and takedowns on much larger opponents, forming the core of his new Gracie jujitsu method. Ultimately, Hélio's son Royce brought the fighting style to America, famously winning UFC 1, 2, and 4 by defeating opponents many times his own size. Suddenly, Americans lined up to learn this newly unveiled Brazilian fighting style, demonstrating their eagerness by folding themselves inside a box and shipping themselves south.
Relson Gracie, Hélio's second oldest son, chose to be an ambassador of his family's fighting style. He was already teaching abroad when his little brother Royce skyrocketed Brazilian jujitsu to popularity. He founded his first school under the name Relson Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in Hawaii, and as the art became popular, he opened new branches of his academy all across the United States. Today, he visits more than 40 academies and associations, sharing his knowledge with thousands of students. In his absence, he leaves instructors whom he personally trained to oversee the education of aspiring fighters.
