Starting as young as 4, we have a program to fit any age, experience, or fitness level. We also offer specialized classes and seminars covering all aspects of personal protection and empowerment.
4-6 year olds have fun learning how to find safety, earn confidence, and gain new skills of thinking, speaking, and acting for self protection and self esteem. Respect for others is taught (kids enjoy helping other kids), with lots of focused concentration (kids thrive on it), and lots of laughter (kids love it). Classes are safe and noncompetitive and emphasize learning how to learn.
For youth ages 7-13, we offer training that is more defense-focused. Your child will begin their adventure with a 64-class course in effective physical, intellectual, and emotional personal-protection – an exciting excursion into empowering self development. Your child will learn how to win in the 12 assault types most likely to occur in a dangerous confrontation, how to turn those 12 threat situations into rescues of other people, how to use 12 natural body self-defense tools, and how to develop the grounded presence of focused command in high-pressure situations.
For students 14 and older, we offer “Life Mastery Through Martial Arts.” Our martial art was developed as a way to promote peace, security, and well-being in the world – command over adversity – not as a way to practice violence. The world needs more protectors, not predators. We offer a very modern approach to personal protection and the inner power that makes life work well, based on ancient protector disciplines handed down from noble Japanese samurai and ninja protector families.
Ryu Tai Dragon Body Yoga
Our body energies work naturally to maintain optimum health and vitality. But over the years we suffer accumulated damage from toxins, stressful living and wear-and-tear. We can stimulate the body’s three purifying systems of lymph, blood circulation and digestion using Ryu Tai’s scientific system of gentle twists, stretches and pressure-point exercises to enhance, restore, and regenerate our health, suppleness, mental clarity and longevity.
In person at the dojo or by Skype over the internet in your home, private lessons are a great way to accelerate your progress! We focus on just what you need to learn, and personally coach you towards whatever specific skills and powers you seek.
Home School Classes
As parents who home school our own children, we understand that every student has unique needs. To that end, we offer classes directed at our Home School Community. If you’re interested in adding martial arts to your child’s school curriculum, it makes a wonderful P.E. class.
