CLASSES IN VERGENNES & MIDDLEBURY FOR KIDS AGES 3 THROUGH ADULT. “In short 8 months - my overall health has benefitted – my breathing is better, I ache a lot less, I’m much more flexible, my balance was never great but it’s slowly getting there... my self-confidence has shot up! My grand-daughter and I have a great time.” – Cheryl, proudly representing our over 50 crowd!

K.I.C.K.S. actually stands for Keep fit, Inner strength, Confidence, Kinship & Self-defense, which we believe are all skills that should help your child regardless of age cope and prepare for the real world.
