Mermaid Spa

Opens at 08:00 AM
Mermaid Spa located in the Sea Gate area of Brooklyn has a reputation for being the best Russian baths in New York. Besides three Russian steam rooms, this bathhouse has a scorching dry sauna, a Turkish bath, two tile pools that are machine-fed with chopped ice and a circular Jacuzzi inside a lodge-like wooden hall. The entire facility is finished with wood and slate. Owners Zina and Boris Kotlyar, Joseph Feldsherov, and Aleks Khlebopros say they wanted to create an environment that was similar to an old style banya in Russia . "Marble is so cold, wood helps you feel warmer." The great quality of steam also helps to feel warmer. Mermaid Spa also offers Swedish and deep tissue massage in addition to traditional Russian massage with soap or venik - a leafy bundle of birch or oak twigs. The restaurant is great with authentic Russian dishes that you would not want to miss. Traditional Russian vodka, cold beer and freshly squeezed juices are also available. The resting area is cozy. In the summer visitors appreciate the fact that Mermaid Spa is located just a 5-minute walk to the beach. Russian steam room: An authentic Russian room with a stove made with granite rocks heated overnight to radiate intense heat. The stove has a hole to throw the water into. By throwing water on stones heated to extreme temperatures behind metal doors, steam droplets of exceptionally small size are created; this makes breathing easy and enjoyable. The temperatures usually do not exceed 80C/180F. Here people often hit themselves or others with bunches of dried branches and leaves from white birch or other suitable trees (called venik) in order to get a message and improve the circulation. In winter, branches that have been dried and then moistened in hot water are used. Felt hats are used to protect the head from heat. Pads are used to sit on as the hot, dry wood can be uncomfortable for bare skin.

Brooklyn Wresling Club & Combat Center

Opens at 05:00 PM
The world is changing quickly and with it, so is our fighting style. This is why Grandmaster Dr. David Furie set out to create a new system of fighting. A system modern enough for today’s modern fighter. More and more people are learning the once highly secretive martial arts. Even more people have been exposed to numerous examples, techniques and ideas from the Internet and popular films. Crime movies and spy thrillers are plentiful. In addition, people tend to be more aggressive and less patient in today’s world. Because of this, today’s fighter needs to be adaptable and modern, not only historical or ancient. They need to learn the Fury system. Today’s fighter needs to be prepared. They need to know more truth than the average person. What happens if someone attacks you or your family, whether they are unarmed or armed? What if the attacker knows martial arts himself? What if there are multiple attackers? What if you are wounded? Fury will teach you how to defend yourself against any attacker, in any situation. How to hit against different parts of your attacker’s anatomy hard, fast and directly, with strikes that will cause distinct and hard paralysis to the human body. Save yourself and your family from any possible attacks, including streetfights or simple aggression. Just because it "might" not happen doesn't mean it won't. Be prepared if you ever find yourself in a situation when it comes your way. Fury combat is a form of mixed martial arts which is used on a professional as well as amateur level. Fury will help you develop almost superhuman skills, and will teach you techniques that have never been used before. Fury will train you not only physically, but also mentally and emotionally.
