  • Tac City Airsoft
    The mid 2000s saw the rise of airsoft, an action sport in which players compete against each other using replica guns and plastic BBs. It became increasingly popular as players discovered the joys of role playing as characters from movies, video games, and real life. After noticing a dearth of airsoft fields, retired professional paintball player Sonny Pepito decided to open his own indoor facility, Tac City Airsoft, in 2008. Relying on his experience as a player, field operator, and business owner, he created a successful business and managed to open another location. Both of Tac City's fields now welcome about 50,000 visitors each year for public games, private events, and professional tactical training. Pepito also hopes to develop a realistic, theme-based environment where players can actually become part of the story, much like a 78-year-old who enrolls in high school to learn how to portray a teen on TV.

  • Arcadia Rock Climbing Gym
    Bouldering, rock climbing's weird cousin who only wears sleeveless shirts, condenses the challenge of scaling a wall by contorting the vertical plane into strange shapes, inversions, convexes, and concaves. Every route becomes a problem, an intense, Escheresque puzzle of grit and physical stamina that builds endurance, spatial-thinking skills, and body awareness. The introductory classes will impart the basics of navigating these challenging routes.

  • Urban Outfitters
    For Urban Outdoor Skills staff Pascal Baudar and Mia Wasilevich, living sustainably is more than just talk. Baudar has been sourcing his own food since his childhood in Belgium, and Wasilevich—a self-taught chef—lives off her own urban garden. Together they run Urban Outdoor Skills, teaching their students self-reliance through classes where they pickle and can their own foods or make organic soaps from wild aromatic plants. Underlying every session is a bounty of expertise in foraging from the surrounding mountain wilderness: nettles and yucca become piquant sauces, seeds become breads and crackers, and flowers become wood-sprite birthday cakes.
