Friday Night JUDO & Ju-Jitsu

$40 Discounted for residents
$50 Regular fee for non-residents

Judo is a Japanese Martial Art from the Samurai. It was developed and brought to fruition by its founder O-Sensei Jigoro Kano in 1882. The best techniques were combined from several different historic martial art styles. It was created during a time that Japan was modernizing itself as a country and could be used for one’s own development and education. It espouses maximum efficiency of the use of one’s own physical and mental energies as a guiding principal; it is a martial art of balance. There are groups of techniques (waza) for both standing and grappling. One of the initial techniques is learning how to perform break-falls (ukemi), so one can be safe regardless of the different standing techniques being applied. Judo is a soft style martial art and is often seen in today’s MMA contests and the Olympics. It is only second in popularity to soccer around the world. In addition to Judo class, there is an opportunity for extra practice and to compete at different tournaments as part of the Fenton Judo Club.

Tai Chi for Adults

$48 Discounted for residents
$58 Regular fee for non-residents

In our Tai Chi class you will learn an ancient self-improvement method that is totally different from other sports or exercise classes. Tai Chi is a very popular Oriental Holistic fitness program that has the added dimension of healing the mind and body from within. The class focuses on proper breathing, increased circulation, and developing internal energy (Ki Power) for improved overall health. You will learn graceful basic actions, which are actually “low impact” exercises in disguise! Unlike other programs, the class is so fascinating that you will never be bored! When you are able to perform all of the basic actions as one continuous flowing motion that is considered a Tai Chi FORM. The goal is to be able to move smoothly through the FORM without the intervention of conscious thought. This is very relaxing for both the mind and body; and it is very beneficial in relieving mental and physical stress. Students typically experience flexibility, less body and joint stiffness, increased range of motion, and less pain. Body balance, coordination, and a more positive outlook on life are also reported by students as a result of Tai Chi practice. When you leave class you will feel rejuvenated, energized, and ready to tackle life with a GREAT NEW ATTITUDE. (Adults Only)
