For more than two decades, Emerald Lakes Golf Course has challenged golfers of all skill levels with a scenic assortment of hazards, including redwood forests, a host of lakes, and the Delta Breeze. The course features a relatively easy first hole, after which things get much harder at hole #2—a 195-yard par-3 made longer by the prevailing winds. Before heading in for the day, golfers must make a difficult decision at the 362-yard, par-4 dogleg ninth hole. They can aim over the lake in hopes of hitting the green directly, lay up in the center of the fairway, or hit the ball in the opposite direction to approach the hole by crossing the entire globe first.

Mandy Autrey doesn't approve of complacency.

Instructor Mike Uhlinger knows the challenges of being a Brazilian-jiu jitsu student—he still trains daily, learning from world champion Cassio Werneck. He also keeps his skills sharp by competing in tournaments and sparring with his wife and assistant instructor, Lenna Uhlinger. Both are present for every class at Mixed Grappling Arts, where they teach adults and children the fundamentals of ground fighting.
Their lessons cover fitness warm-ups, drills, and live training with a partner. All of these exercises focus around the central law of jiu jitsu: that you can subdue a stronger, larger opponent if you use leverage to your advantage. Mike and Lenna give individualized feedback to their pupils as they demonstrate various joint locks and holds, ensuring that each class has a supportive atmosphere in which students can hone their techniques.
Clint Robinson's U.S. Air Force duty took him around the world, but it was his time in South Korea that made the biggest mark. There, he learned the art of tae kwon do—and the positive fitness and values associated with it. When he returned to the states and left the Air Force, it didn't take long for him to found his own martial-arts school. More than 40 years and over a dozen locations later, Robinson's Taekwondo continues to thrive on the same principles on which Clint founded his business: excellence, personal attention, and tradition. He now counts children's, adult, and family programs as part of his curriculum. With continued training, students of all ages not only hone their fitness, but also improve their mental sharpness, self-confidence, and discipline.

High-school wrestler Derek DiManno stopped pinning his opponents in college when he decided to focus on his studies instead. After achieving a master’s degree, Derek stepped back into the ring—this time learning Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Studying under a world champion, Derek himself picked up a slew of championship awards, and earned a black belt in the sport. He opened his own martial-arts school to bestow others with the knowledge and skills of self-defense techniques. His classes for kids teach basic moves with the aim of boosting students’ self-discipline, sportsmanship, and social skills. Adult classes challenge students of all fitness abilities, and special law-enforcement classes teach police how to take down criminals without the use of a weapon.
