Led by highly experienced, eighth-degree-black-belt-holding instructor Kyoshi Roger Dabney, Competitive Edge Karate's adult self-protection program class teaches students the basics of traditional martial arts, combining standup and grappling methods to produce lean, mean, attacker-attacking machines. Discover how to effectively punch, elbow, kick, and knee multiple opponents with standup defense skills while also learning grappling techniques that can help you escape an attacker who's pinned you to the ground. Students are also taught how to use their minds as even more powerful weapons than fist rockets and leg torpedoes, harnessing the brain's natural crisis-solving and fear-crushing abilities.
Grandpa Eddie's serves up saucy specialties influenced by several of the nation's barbecue capitals. Owner Carey Friedman calls on his own experience in Texas and throughout the south, as well as his Grandpa Eddie's time-honored recipes from Alabama and Kansas City. The result is a menu of classic southern cooking that has gained notoriety since the IBCA State Championship chicken ($15.99), half a smoked chicken, won Virginia-wide recognition and had a brief stint as a Hollywood celebrity. Prepare for a cross-country culinary excursion with an okra basket opener ($5.99) or a slice of peanut butter pie ($5.99), which Grandpa Eddie suggests you eat before your meal. Come dinnertime, try the Texas style beef brisket sandwich ($8.99), slow smoked and snuggled inside a toasted roll with Grandpa Eddie's Birmingham BBQ sauce. Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and Guiness are both on tap to give spicy sauce a spirited chase. If you can finish your dinner, try another dessert: the doughnut sundae, a warm glazed doughnut topped with French Vanilla ice cream ($3.99).

Manakin Sabot Family & Cosmetic Dentistry is overseen by the highly trained and certified gaze of Dentist Dr. Peter Murchie. The 60-minute teeth whitening process is available to restore the sheen dulled by caffeine, tobacco, and motorcycling through fields of mulberry trees, without resorting to the abrasive whitening substances offered in many dental offices. The simple, effective treatment uses the Opalescence Boost whitening system to blast away color and stains, without bothersome heat or ultraviolet rays of a cantankerous bubble machine. Instead of being hassled for the size of your canines by taking mouth molds, the Opalescence treatment uses a topical serum that is fortified with potassium nitrate and fluoride to boost cavity protection and complete the cycle of dental domination.
Doctors of Chiropractic Ryan Dee and Andrew Geskie adjust spines with a variety of techniques, including the low-force activator technique, which gently realigns vertebrae, and the Pettibon technique, which incorporates spinal manipulation with strengthening exercises to improve posture. The doctors use comprehensive exams to get to know patients, taking time to talk to patients and field questions concerning back pain and why owls make terrible pillows. They then use adjustments, massage therapy, and electrical muscle stimulation to treat everything from whiplash and lower-back pain to allergies and chronic headaches.
