Find adventure at Skydive Pismo Beach

In 21st century America, planes are a fairly normal aspect of the daily grind. Most adults would say they’ve flown, but Chris Lee, general manager of Skydive Pismo Beach, would disagree. To him, that would be like saying you went for a swim without ever leaving the boat. In order to fly, you’ve got to jump.

My tough mudder story

Editors note: Gary Brown of Paso Robles completed his first tough mudder in September. This is his story.

Misery never felt so good

Why am I here? What’s my age again? 42? Is that old? I was at a friends house for an after golf tournament dinner party. I was happily consuming whatever I wanted: beer, pizza, wine, cheeseburgers, you name it. I overheard a couple of guys talking about the “Tough Mudder Race”.

Take a tumble on the mat: Paragon Ju Jitsu teaches confidence, self-defense

In the real world, fights almost always end up on the floor, two opponents rolling around trying to get the top position and hold the other down. Ground fighting is awkward and messy, and it doesn’t make for impressively choreographed scenes in ninja flicks, which is part of the reason few kids are interested in learning it and fewer gyms teach the techniques necessary to win a grappling match.
 
The students and teachers at Paragon Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, with locations in San Luis Obispo and Templeton, are the exception.

Running for their lives

Olympic hero returns to Uganda to help orphans

The year was 1988, and the Lord’s Resistance Army, a militant rebel force in Uganda, was taking up arms against the government. In a small village of northern Uganda, 15 children, not older than 12, were kidnapped by the group and ordered to pillage and kill their neighboring villagers. If they disobeyed, the children learned, they would be shot. If they wanted to live, they would have to become killers themselves.
