Master Brad at Villari's of Somerville is creating a martial arts experience that goes beyond the typical run of the mill karate class. At Villari's, kids and adults alike benefit from a real opportunity to explore a broader understanding of themselves through the mental and physical disciplines of karate, and through an introspective exploration of thoughts, feelings and personal behaviors and how they impact our personal realities. Classes begin with a short meditation, a physical work out with stretching, practice of forms and structure and wind down again with meditation and discussion. Kids are encouraged to celebrate their accomplishments no matter how big or small, and each child/student progresses at their own pace. My two children, 12 and 9 have been taking classes at Villari's for over 4 years now and have grown tremendously over that time. As a parent concerned with raising my children to be good, productive, compassionate people, I have found Villari's to be a wonderful support to what I try to teach at home, and sometimes, I learn a little something from them too! Give them a try - you'll love it!
