We start from this radical idea: you’re a person. You have thoughts, feelings, autonomy and value. You deserve to be seen and heard. You deserve to be treated with respect, not talked down to. This program is a practice run for adulthood. The training is fun: you’ll learn to punch, kick, and defend yourself; but you’ll be expected to do the work, show up, try hard, take responsibility, be a peer leader. You’ll be supported in your martial arts journey by senior students and teaching assistants who started just where you are today. Grow into the person you want to become. You’ll leave here more comfortable around adults, better at setting boundaries. You’ll know how to communicate around consent. You’ll develop a physical practice and learn to feel at home in your body. And you’ll be a part of our community.
