  • Academie Duello
    It's a fairly common image from the Middle Ages and from fairy tales: an armoured knight on horseback, riding triumphantly into battle wielding a sword. Today, of course, such a sight would have shocked witnesses almost immediately—unless they're at Academie Duello. A centre for European swordplay and Western martial arts, Academie Duello has revived centuries-old scenes similar to the one above. It teaches students ancient battle techniques, but does not re-enact epic duels or the well-documented silly-string wars that ensued when swords broke. The 5,000-square-foot facility extracts skills and weapon information from authentic combat manuals and primary-source texts. Its instructors turn that knowledge into an in-depth curriculum, which today provides both adult and children's programs. Most of those programs also help students stay fit, as they replace weights and treadmills with longswords, shields, and rapiers. To immerse themselves further into knighthood, students can check out Academie Duello's museum, which preserves an ever-growing collection of weapons of war, armour, and fight books.

  • Flight City Enterprises
    Ever wonder what it's like to fly? Flight City Enterprises gives laypeople the chance to see what it's like to helm a 747 without going through the training, testing, and feather collecting a real pilot does. The Gear Flight City maintains a professional-level flight-training simulator, about which former airline pilots have claimed, "I felt like I was right back in the cockpit." The simulator creates weather situations, such as snow, and random traffic patterns, as well as reproducing operative malfunctions. The Experience After a quick briefing, newbie fliers take the helm alongside their instructor, who shows them every last duty, from preflight to landing. Together, they check gauges and meters before they take the "plane" into the sky, stressing the three major tasks: aviate, navigate, and communicate. Finally, the instructor guides them through an approach and landing, plus final breathing exercises to shake off the stress.

  • Blackcomb Aviation
    Whether it's the quiet tranquility of an alpine picnic or the adrenaline thrill of high-octane skiing, there are certain emotions that you can't feel anywhere but at a remote mountaintop. But that very remoteness stands in the way of capturing those experiences—unless, of course, you have a helicopter. Blackcomb Aviation specializes in chartered journeys to otherwise inaccessible peaks, opening up a whole world of glacier hiking, sightseeing tours, and mountaintop fishing. But their signature service has to be heli-skiing, which transports athletes to expanses of powder unequipped with ski lifts and teleportation circles.

  • Octopus Village
    What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Our phone-based coaching means we can support you no matter where you are. All you need is a phone and 1 hour a week to begin to make long-lasting improvements in your's and you child's routines. Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring? You'll need to come into each weekly session with your commitment and desire to learn. We'll provide weekly worksheets, by email, that will be completed with your coach. We'll also provide support and encouragement along the way. What was the inspiration to start or run this business? Having worked in childcare for 15 years, I was determined to bring a high level of care to raising my own child. After experiencing the frustration that only your own child can envoke, I was motivated to learn, and then teach, practical tools to make those daily struggles manageable or disappear. What do you love most about your job? It is so rewarding to hear parents tell me that they feel empowered, confident and enjoyment raising their child(ren). I love bring families closer to that image that they had "pre-kids" about what it would be like to have children. I also love learning something new from every family I work with.

  • Metropolitan Bartending School
    Micah, Luch, and Alicia of Metropolitan Bartending School draw on over a decade of bartending chops apiece to impart the art of alcoholic alchemy. Students enrolled in at-home or comprehensive certification courses might recognize Micah Dew as the resident drinkspert of the Province newspaper, or remember his dazzling “Extreme Bartending” performance of juggling and fire-breathing for a stunned Rachel Ray. Between also working a bartending job five nights a week at The Roxy Vancouver, Micah lends industry-veterans Luch and Alicia a hand in leading a lineup of diverse classes and workshops. The sessions range from wine-tasting seminars to Serving It Right certification, a legal necessity in British Columbia. All of these classes take place behind real bars at Metropolitan Bartending School's facilities, equipped with the most commonly used liquor bottles, a POS training-mode system for running tabs, and an animatronic priest, rabbi, and minister.
