Safety in a Modern World

with Kevin Webb

Calendar Sep 12, 2020 at 11 am, runs for 1 week

Safety in a Modern World

In this 3 hour course, participants will learn some basic ways to handle everyday situations that have the potential to turn violent. It is not unrealistic to be in a situation where you have to control a scenario involving a family member or friend that has escalated out of hand.  

This course looks to bridge that gap and address what happens in a situation when reasonable force is needed.  A potentially dangerous situation where injuring one of the parties is not necessary, but some level of physical component is likely to be utilized.  Conflict resolution skills will be taught in the form of de-escalation strategies, avoidance, restraining and controlling techniques.

Adults 18 and over are welcome to attend. No prior martial arts experience necessary.

Character Through Karate

with Kevin Webb

Calendar Sep 15, 2020 at 6:30 pm, runs for 3 weeks

 

The Martial Arts Institute would like to introduce a new class series called... 

"Character through Karate"

The first of the series will focus on GOAL SETTING.

Goal setting is not just about starting from one place to get to another.  It is about the process in between."Goal Setting in Karate" is a class designed for all ages and abilities who wish to learn karate through an intentional step by step process. Goal setting application and strategies will be taught as well as how they can be translated into real life scenarios. 

You are never too old or too young to set goals for yourself. You are never too old or too young to try something new! Come join us, invite your friends and family.  This is a new class designed for you!

This class is for beginner practitioners. All ages and abilities encouraged. Families encouraged!

The Character Education program at the Martial Arts Institute was developed in partnership with Dr. Ron Fish, psychologist and martial arts practitioner. The goal of the program is to demonstrate and articulate how traditional martial arts training can enhance and improve the quality of life of the student both inside and outside of the dojo.  Whether it is for self improvement, our daily interactions with other people or how to handle different life situations, each component of the program is specifically geared to correlate and transform the benefits of traditional martial arts training with every-day life.

This class is Zoom capable in the event large gatherings are not permitted.
