Anyone who’s seen my Mars Attacks and Avengers tattoos can probably guess that I’m into sci-fi and superheroes. When I heard all of the buzz about Netflix’s Stranger Things, I just assumed it couldn’t actually be that good. Boy was I wrong! I binge-watched the show in a few days.
As a child of the eighties, I have a soft spot in my heart for any ragtag group of neighborhood kids that band together to face a threat their parents can’t handle. Goonies, Monster Squad, and now the pre-teen cast of Stranger Things!
The boys were great, but it was Millie Bobby Brown who stole the show as Eleven, a telekinetic badass on the run from a shady government program. Behind the scenes, Brown trains mixed martial arts just like our Teen Martial Arts students here in Seattle.
Mia shows off her slick boxing in Teen Martial Arts this week… I'm stoked to fight tomorrow because it's a goal I've had for a long time and an opportunity to test myself and walk along my edge… But its all just a means to the ultimate mission: empowering myself and others to let go of our self-imposed or social limits and be our best selves. This is most clear for me when I work with my teens. Very proud of them and the hard work they put in. #fightingchanceseattle #martialarts #boxing #muaythai #youth #teen #teenkickboxing #seattle
Our Teen Martial Arts fall semester begins Wednesday, September 7. This year we’ve refined our curriculum by age group to more effectively serve the needs of middle school (ages 11 – 13) and high school (ages 14 – 16) students. We’ve also further developed our focus on communication, leadership, and goal setting.
Fighting Chance Seattle launched it’s Teen Martial Arts program in 2013 and it had to be split into two groups by 2015. Our students learn a mix of kickboxing, karate, and self-defense tailored to their needs and abilities. The students train in a traditional dojo atmosphere and work with one another through peer-teaching and group activities.
We’re now accepting students for the fall. All new students start with a two-week trial to see if our dojo is a good fit. Save 50% off the trial fee with coupon code: Teen50
Fighting chance Seattle is a different kind of dojo. Operating out of Ballard, students focus on strengthening their minds, spirits and community, as well as their roundhouse kicks. The dojo has been in business for five years and is dedicated to empowering students through encouraging personal growth, self-confidence, and martial arts excellence.
