I've tried a bunch of martial arts over the years, but it wasn't until I got to Gentle East that I realized that the art itself doesn't matter so much--it's the attitude of its practitioners. These people aren't learning and teaching how to kill, but how to live. How to live despite trauma and illness, and to keep practicing their art even if it's just in their hearts. The tenets are courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, and indomitable spirit, and they mean every word. They teach the kids that other dojangs won't. Autistic, physically challenged, special needs, you name it. They're fully engaged with the messy business of life. A whole lot of families are glad that Master Barbara Robinson followed her vision. Ours is one.

Love, love, love this place! The staff is incredibly kind and supportive, and the family atmosphere is palpable the moment you walk in the door! I am so impressed with the work being done with autism spectrum kids, as well as other kids with physical challenges. No one is made to feel like they don't belong here! I even joined the mommy class and my toddlers are allowed to run around us while we work out. I've lost a few pounds, and gained some amazing (non-judgemental) mom-friends! An oasis of kindness and support in the middle of what is often a 'keep up with the Jones's " area of town.

Success Tips for the New Year

Nighttime Rituals can help you to build momentum, stay focused, motivated, and productive in the New Year. If you follow these, you will sleep well, wake up refreshed and be ready to conquer the day.

Ritual 1: Read a Chapter, article, or blog
Regardless of the content you absorb during the day, make it a nighttime ritual to read at least 1 chapter of a book, article in a magazine, or blog. This will stimulate your mind before bed, which I find beneficial because I tend to solve problems in my dreams.

Ritual 2: Document 3 wins
After stimulating your brain, write down 3 wins from the day. They don’t always have to be 3 big wins, so dig deep into your day to identify even the smallest accomplishments. Sometimes the small wins are more rewarding, so this is an important mindset to have.

Ritual 3: Gratitude journal
Finish your day writing down what you grateful for. This strategy is crucial before bed so that you are focused on positive thoughts. The more positive you are before bed, the more positive your dreams are, and hence, the more positive you will be the next day!
