"I’ve tried all the fitness classes at my local community fitness center. The physical workouts were OK, but I became aware that I was looking for more. The Silent Mind’s classes introduced me to the missing element. Their whole-person approach to exercise, engaging the body, mind, and spirit is every one of their programs was exactly what I needed to be satisfied with my workouts. The Silent Mind’s kid’s martial art program is about so much more than martial arts. The teaching environment is fun, safe, and encompasses a host of lessons about how to be a better person. I was pleasantly surprised how complete the program really is. I will be keeping my son in the program right through to his Black Belt". – Debra Moore and Devin Mills
