Martial Arts Class
Where: The Skyline Grange
When: Every Tues @ 6:30
Cost: Donation Accepted to Cover Grange Rental
Come check out the Martial Arts Class that is now being held at the Grange every Tuesday at 6:30 pm.
This all inclusive martial arts class is for anyone age 6 and up. Although it is mostly about self defense, these classes are an excellent opportunity to increase your fitness, improve balance, mobility and range of motion. “We meet people where they are and take them were they want to go”, says Christina Traunweiser, who is integral in bringing these classes to the neighborhood. She says they have had participants in wheelchairs, and limiting conditions that are able to participate, enjoy and improve in these classes.
Come check it out.
