The Martial Arts Institute would like to introduce a new class series called... 

"Character through Karate"

The first of the series will focus on GOAL SETTING.

Goal setting is not just about starting from one place to get to another.  It is about the process in between."Goal Setting in Karate" is a class designed for all ages and abilities who wish to learn karate through an intentional step by step process. Goal setting application and strategies will be taught as well as how they can be translated into real life scenarios. 

You are never too old or too young to set goals for yourself. You are never too old or too young to try something new! Come join us, invite your friends and family.  This is a new class designed for you!

This class is for beginner practitioners. All ages and abilities encouraged. Families encouraged!

The Character Education program at the Martial Arts Institute was developed in partnership with Dr. Ron Fish, psychologist and martial arts practitioner. The goal of the program is to demonstrate and articulate how traditional martial arts training can enhance and improve the quality of life of the student both inside and outside of the dojo.  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.

This class is Zoom capable in the event large gatherings are not permitted.

Developing Intuitive Abilities to Navigate our Stressful World


with Maia Rizzi, Kittery Adult Education

Calendar Sep 15, 2020 at 6:30 pm, runs for 3 weeks

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.

Sept. 15-29, 6:30-8 pm
