Kovar’s Satori Academy of Martial Arts
Multiple locations; (800) 645-3676; www.satoriacademy.comâ€¨
The business Dave Kovar started in 1978 has grown to include nine Sacramento-area locations for young and old alike. Because martial arts may seem intimidating to first-timers, the academy offers a free private lesson. Or, if you’re more inclined to look before you leap, the academy’s demonstration team, Red and Black Attack, can be spotted at fairs, college sporting events and the occasional Sacramento Kings basketball game.
