Owner Tomer Litvin discovered his passion for muay thai more than 18 years ago. His amateur exploits in the ring eventually led him to a spot in Fairtex’s world-renowned personal-tutoring program, the chance to go padded fist to padded fist against numerous European champions, and a career as a certified Fairtex instructor. Also holding a brown belt in Brazilian jujitsu, Tomer now channels his love of the martial arts into helming his own school.
In addition to the striking form of muay thai and the grappling art of jujitsu, Tomer and his staff also teach the highly practical self-defense art of krav maga. In these mixed-martial-arts classes, students can put the varied fighting disciplines together to form a comprehensive sport-fighting system useful for defending themselves, sparring, or staging performances of Mortal Kombat: The Musical.
At Cable Junction Zipline Adventures, families and friends can overcome fears, build confidence, and perhaps most importantly, bond—all while being dozens of feet of the ground. Cable Junction's zipline course rises into the trees and sends participants zooming through the air. It features seven zipline stations, four climbing elements, and a trio of treetop aerial bridges. At the end of the course, pairs race back to Earth along a 450-foot exit challenge that reaches speeds of up to 30 MPH, roughly the same speed as a cheetah who's not that good in gym class.
In addition to aerial adventures, Cable Junction also has fun groundside. The primitive camping sites allow guests to erect a tent and spend some time out in nature sans electricity and other modern conveniences.

The Korean masters who run White Tiger Martial Arts strive to do more than just share the tae kwon do techniques that they've learned over decades of training. They impart their enthusiasm and sincerity for martial arts in every class so students may develop greater discipline, respect, and confidence while also becoming stronger physically and mentally. Belts of increasingly prestigious hues wind around waists as students practice proper martial arts technique and face off against partners in Olympic-style sparring lessons. Family and children's classes are divided by belt and age while adult classes are not divided.
Former Marine Tony Crockett discovered jujitsu in 1980 while stationed in an Okinawan village. On his website, he recalls that the village instructor didn't speak English and cared more about technique than rank. That initial lesson made a strong impression on Crockett. He has since received a black belt in Danzan-Ryu jujitsu from the American Judo and Jujitsu Federation and started Allen Judo & Jujitsu, where he teaches Danzan-Ryu jujitsu to adults. Typical techniques taught during the classes, which take place at The Jym, include throws, chokes, strikes, and really firm handshakes.
