  • Asheville Integrated Combatives
    C.O.R.E. krav maga––a threefold philosophy of self-defense that is ethical, pragmatic, and dynamic––serves as the foundation for Asheville Integrated's hands-on martial-arts classes, during which trainers teach students how to protect themselves in real-world scenarios while conditioning and strengthening their bodies. Using elements of the C.O.R.E. krav maga model, martial-arts instructors also host self-defense classes specifically catered to women and children, helping them build balance, coordination, and the wherewithal to defend themselves in the face of violence. Asheville Integrated Combatives' programs evolve based on feedback from the community, local law enforcement, and burgeoning muscles that pen thank-you notes to staff members.

  • Aerial Trapeze Academy
    Matthew Altbuch started learning the art of circus performance at the tender age of eight, quickly mastering the unicycle, juggling, and the trapeze. Throughout school, he performed in talent shows, ultimately going on to spend time with the Florida State Flying High Circus after college. Eventually, he realized his passion lay in sharing the circus arts with others, so he founded Aerial Trapeze Academy to carry out his mission of training performers around the world. He now lives his dream, joined by three other teachers as he holds trapeze classes for the next generation of gravity-defiers.

  • Winding Creek Stables
    The clopping of hooves echoes across Winding Creek Stables’ wide-open pastures and jumping arena, where a staff of ex-competitive equestrians takes a comprehensive approach to riding instruction. In private and group lessons, instructors share their wisdom about handling and technique while impressing upon students the importance of respecting their steeds. Adults and children alike can pick between the hunt-seat riding style popular at horse shows and the western style, which includes instructions for chasing down robber barons and lassoing feral cacti. Students learn to groom and care for their horses before and after the lesson—a gesture of respect to the animals and a key takeaway should novices desire to advance to competitive riding. Before riding off into the sunset, check out the stable’s other horse-related services, which include pony parties and pony rides.

  • Western North Carolina Home Show
    Since 1976, area merchants and knowledgeable experts from around the country have gathered to swap ideas, inspiration, and advice at the Western North Carolina Home Show. Throughout the Asheville Civic Center, hundreds of local businesses and experts set up booths where they explain the nuts and bolts of their industry, whether landscaping, interior decoration, window installation, or furniture crafting. Meanwhile, speakers present seminars on a wide variety of topics throughout the weekend-long extravaganza, from hyperpractical subjects, such as setting a budget, to more abstract topics, such as the definition and history of green building. Visitors to the show depart with rekindled enthusiasm for projects, as well as an arsenal of facts that give them an edge when vetting contractors or performing standup at interior-design conferences.

  • Asheville Tourists Baseball
    As a Minor League affiliate of the Colorado Rockies, the Asheville Tourists look to improve on last season's 40-30 record with a roster poised for more orb clobbering, field prancing, and bag stomping. Kick up dusty cleats in an up-close box seat at McCormick Field and watch the Tourists turn the Lexington Legends into forgotten folk tales or outclass the crustaceous humanoids of the Lakewood BlueClaws. The first 1,000 fans to enter the field on April 16 and 17 are bequeathed with a free magnetic season schedule, with the latter game treating kids to a pregame autograph session and a postgame base run. April 20 is an education day, featuring a special start time of 11:05 a.m. that allows students to attend the game on their lunch break from school.
