The Maine East Martial Arts Club exists to promote healthy fitness for off-season athletes and recreational participants. No experience is necessary. Our emphasis is on flexibility, coordination, body mechanics, and a range of techniques drawn from various martial arts. Advanced members participate by offering a demonstration of skills that they have acquired from a home gym or sensei.
We focus on peaceful mindfulness, focusing on the Bushido ideas: justice, bravery, benevolence, loyalty, etc. We also spend a few minutes in silent meditation at the close of practice to focus on non-violence and compassion.
Every year, the club does a group demonstration at the International Celebration, and other events can be planned to share our craft with family and friends.
Please contact Mr. Pappageorge in the English Department with questions or interest!
