Initially purchased by the Smith family in the 1830s for $0.50 per acre, owners Neil and Trish Leichty restored the Butts Mill Farm's historic mill and transformed the land into a priceless trove of amusement and activities for all ages. The Discovery Zone houses hamster-approved brightly colored tubes and slides, and Noah's Ark and Western-themed playgrounds add dramatic backdrops to games of tag and re-creations of scenes from Dances with Wolves. Kids can plop down to rest atop an amiable pony for a gentle ride and meet mammalian farm denizens at the petting zoo. Across the river spanned by a covered bridge, a mini-golf course pits putters against one another to engage in a little friendly competition and wagers over first-borns.
As he gained a reputation in the ring for being a determined and fierce fighter, Tim Stout earned the nickname “MOAB”—an acronym for Massive Ordinance Air Blast, a powerful bomb. For more than 20 years, Tim has been training in martial arts, beginning with karate before delving into muay thai, boxing, and wrestling. Along the way, the ambitious athlete earned championship titles in tournaments across the country, holding the South Carolina Grappling Championship title for three years.
When he isn’t training for upcoming matches, Tim pulls lessons from his personal playbook to teach students at his own training school, MOAB Fighting Concepts. Amidst the private studio’s cushioned floors and heavy punching bags, Tim and his staff of award-winning fighters train aspiring punch-smiths in a wide variety of martial-arts techniques, from boxing to wrestling to MMA. In addition to technique-focused kickboxing classes, the trainers lead a cardio-kickboxing class specially designed to slim physiques and tone muscles. The instructors also train up tots in kids' kickboxing and jujitsu classes, where they lead youngsters through self-defense techniques such as how to wrestle an opponent to the ground or roundhouse kick a baseball for the game-winning home run.
