I can’t explain just how amazing this place is! My daughter was born at just 23 weeks, 1lb. She just turned 3, and is doing well but had a long bumpy road. With said, she has some visual impairments, mild cerebral palsy, and severe anxiety issues. We are four classes in now, and although my daughter cries each time we get to the school, the instructors (every single one) ALWAYS treat her like their own and take their time with her. She comes out of class so happy and oh so proud of herself! They do not treat her differently because of her impairments, they are all patient and kind, and above all understanding. We are BEYOND pleased with GEMA, and the staff to include the wonderful families we have met. Thank you GEMA for creating a better world for my daughter!

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.

The Benefits of Virtual Training

Although not new, virtual instruction has become a more widely used approach, especially in the wake of the current pandemic. Nearly everyone has been directed to stay at home, which initially seemed like a vacation but quickly became a stressful situation. With routines upended and everyone having limited access to activities, children are filled with an overabundance of pent up energy. The need for supportive, nurturing, and engaging online resources is essential for parents and children. This is why our virtual martial arts training is so beneficial.

Virtual classes are a way for people to learn via an online platform. They have become more and more popular as technology has improved and because they are convenient. Today, many people utilize online systems as a way to attend various levels of school, learn new skills, and join conferences. And now, companies such as Gentle East Martial Arts are offering online training to stay connected to their students, offer an outlet for extra energy, and provide an opportunity to continue training.

In the new normal of our world, it’s easy to become stagnant and passive. By providing children with the online training platform, Gentle East empowering them to develop a growth mindset and come out even stronger on the other side. And since our children’s classes utilize child development tehniques, children continue to develop physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially. By utilizing the D.O.S.E. method, instructors boost the student’s neural circuitry all the while helping them stay fit, active, and entertained.

And while virtual classes and training are new for many, Gentle East lays out the curriculum and class access in a way that is easy to use. By providing students and parents with written curriculum and supplemental videos, virtual live class access, and one-on-one training opportunities, we strive to meet all  of our student needs. The best thing is this type of platform provides flexibility so content is available if a student misses class. By having all this information easily accessible, it also gives the students the ability to go back and review the information that may have been more of a challenge.

Today, more than ever before, children need to be assured that everything will be ok. By keeping them engaged with activities that part of their “normal” routine, parents can help their children deal with the current situation in a more productive way. Along with this, the extra support that instructors provide helps parents understand that they are not alone. Utilizing platforms such as Gentle East’s virtual martial arts training can give children the tools for success right from the comfort of their own home.
