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.

Developing Intuitive Abilities to Navigate our Stressful World
with Maia Rizzi, Kittery Adult Education
Class is scheduled to meet in person but if circumstances change, you will be notified and sent a link to attend virtually using Zoom meetings online. Our western culture emphasizes rationality and logic without acknowledging the existence and proven validity of INTUITION (gut feelings). Consequently, when making life decisions, we get caught up in our heads, which can cause considerable mistakes to be made. Learning to develop your intuition (a force inherent in us all) for guidance will change your world by enhancing your trust and sense of security. Maia Rizzi is a Clinical Hypnotherapist.
