Our kids classes offer training in several martial arts, body-centered meditation, reflective listening practice, lots of exercise, and, above all, fun and games! The older kids’ classes also incorporate Aikido and Jujitsu focused martial arts training, as well as discipline, working together, and respect for oneself and others.

Classes are for children ages 5 to 13 and are held Wednesday afternoons in North Boulder from 5-6pm on Wednesdays.

Our View:
We consider martial arts a complete spiritual path. We believe that martial arts also complement any spiritual or secular tradition. With mutual kindness, mindfulness, and discipline, we work directly with others during our training, and thereby physically and mentally ground our innate compassion and fearlessness.

Our Practice:
We focus on the arts of Aikido, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, and Kali. Each of these emerged from Eastern warrior traditions, and we strive to highlight the unique nobility, wisdom, and skills of each. Our classes included mindfulness practice and conclude with active reflection thru discussion; clear communication and body-awareness are emphasized throughout. In this way, we practice skillful engagement with others while developing an intimate knowledge of ourselves.

Our Fruition:
Through practice, we become familiar with our inherent virtues: generosity, patience, perseverance, compassion, fearlessness, etc. Through the kind assistance of our teachers and fellow students, we learn to magnetize these virtues in others and ourselves and develop them further.
