We have taught women's self defense programs in a private party setting, to soon-to-be graduating high school girls, victims of abuse and their counselors as well. Lastly, we have been very involved in the enrichment of our community's youth by teaching at both the West Street and North Street schools on a monthly basis in support of their Character Development Program called P.A.W.S. Over one hundred children per month get to experience the rewards of martial arts practice and it's making a big difference
The Standard we "do our best" to uphold (From the book The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz):
Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering.
Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.
Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.
