The Detroit River's international waters stretch out for miles in either direction, winding along the Detroit skyline and kissing the Canadian border. As ships snake their way through the current, they pass lighthouses on small green islands, bridges stretched across overhead, and workers milling about on the riverside docks. Building on 20 years of boating, the captains of the Diamond Jack, Diamond Belle, and Diamond Queen let passengers take in these sights to the tune of guided narration as their ships' white and sea-foam green hulls slice through the water. The three ships safely gather up to 250 passengers on their panoramic upper decks or in protected lower cabins. Today, passengers on these storied steel decks can sip beer, wine, and soft drinks or nibble on snacks from an on-board snack bar during tours. Captains also pilot each ship on private group excursions, as well as school field trips past the river's ships, yacht clubs, parks, and docks.
At The Fighting Fit, certified instructors sharpen both kids? and adults? muscles and minds through lessons in krav maga and CrossFit sessions. Hebrew for "close or contact combat," the krav maga was created by Imi Lichtenfeld for the Israeli army, who needed a hand-to-hand fighting system that could be learned by anyone regardless of age, gender, or athletic ability. Unlike traditional martial arts, krav maga involves no forms, but rather teaches students basic self-defense skills. The multipurpose gym also leads CrossFit Bad Boys sessions that jump-start metabolisms and build dynamic, functional strength and balanced fitness. At least one instructor guides students and all times during classes, and the team offers personal training for individuals who fear being alone in a room with kettlebells.
