Register! Art Warriors
9:30am / Seed Studio
Join Seed Studio and Durango Aikido for this free kids' event! When fine art and martial arts combine, kids train their whole beings -- mind, body, and heart!   The Samurai class of medieval Japan believed that the best training served a person's whole being. A typical warrior studied martial arts and weapons, as well as poetry, painting, fine arts, history, philosophy, and so much more. When combined, these disciplines train us to focus, breathe, and be present. They promote the health and well-being of our whole selves.   Kids ages 8 and up are invited to experience the benefits of training their minds, bodies, and hearts at this one-day workshop combining the fine arts with martial arts.
Register! Kids Aikido
11:00am / DSBK Dojo
Kids ages 8 and up will learn a nonviolent approach to dealing with conflicts and bullying. They will practice fundamental movements, exercises, and Aikido techniques. Throughout the series, kids will get to experience what it feels like to blend with an attack or a problem in order to move skillfully and resolve the issue. Participants will also develop mindfulness habits through meditative breathing practice. They will learn how to handle the bokken (sword) and jo (short staff) to improve their physical coordination. Expect plenty of fun games, too.   When kids train in Aikido, they come away with greater confidence, balance, coordination, and focus.
