Aerial Silks with Bliss Button-Hale Saturday October 12 at 9 am. Please register in advance. If we have enough people interested, we will have a beginner's class at 9 am and an advanced beginner's class at 10:30. If we do not have 5 people registered, there will be no class. $20 at the door or $16 with your preregistration. This is such a fun program, I hope our community will show up and support it. I would love to see it continue.
Aikido with Mark Clark will be Saturday October 12 at 12:30pm. We have been concentrating on learning bokken forms, and practicing empty hand techniques. This is a great supplement to our karate programs for people interested in reconciliation and blending/transmuting energy, as a martial art. $20 NOTAFLOF

Wednesdays at 6:30 is vegetable delivery day. The gardens are taking a break, but expect greens next week. Come for vegetables and stay for the yoga. TELL YOUR FRIENDS! Organic, delicious, and nutritious. The brothers from Pamona Hill Farm are dedicated yogis who grow great food!

Check out our little shop in the office. We have CBD products for sale (also from Pamona Hill Farm) and lots of other medicinal herbs. Stay for a cup of tea sometime and read a book from our healing and martial arts library.

There is a special on private yoga sessions. Three classes for $150, includes a 20 minute home practice with notes, designed just for you!

We have a schedule of public yoga classes, please check it out. Try our different teachers, bring your friends and pay what you can. We have passes for sale, and we have suggested prices...but we encourage you to make us an offer that fits with your budget and your fitness goals. We trade for services too and there are always things to do around the dojo to fit with any skill set.

Little Dragons class has been awesome this summer! The little guys have been working hard and ranking up. There is room for a few more kids in class, 4:30 Mondays and Fridays. Bring your little dragon (Kids 8 and under) to try a class and see what it is all about! This is not just playtime, even though it is a practice designed to be fun. Discipline and character are important too, as well as teamwork and leadership skills. This is a great way for parents to get help setting and achieving goals for behavior and academics.

Family style karate class is still every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 5pm. We have been focusing on self defense, but also on forms, sparring, flexibility, and strength.

Leopard is taking a two month sabbatical to see family and friends on the other side of the Atlantic. We welcome Tom Foolery as his substitute. He is teaching the same style of medical qigong and looking forward to keeping things going while Leopard is away. You can practice with Tom each week at 9 am. Ask him if he knows anything about juggling, you might enjoy the answer. ;)

Sensei Hide's mother passed last week, so he is going to be in Japan for a couple of weeks. We are sorry for his loss and look forward to his return. We will miss his class, I will make an announcement when it is back on the schedule.

Please join us!

Mission Statement:

Center Hill Martial and Healing arts club provides an inclusive martial arts and yoga experience with a focus on citizenship, leadership, and self-discipline. Building confidence and assertiveness skills, our programs will address bullying and introduce peer mediation skills. The focus will be not only on training physical attributes (the techniques of martial arts and yoga), but also in training the mental and emotional attributes of courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self control, and respect. As a well rounded program, there will be resources available for children, adults, and families of different abilities and economic situations.
