The Martial Arts at Still & Moving Center are an opportunity to put meditation into precise movement practices. Tai Chi, Aikido and Capoeira practices focus on body mechanics in dynamic, rhythmic movement in the context of other moving bodies. Tai Chi, Aikido and Capoeira are studies in the flow of energy: chi (in Chinese) or ki (in Japanese). Mats are used when tumbling/rolling are involved. Honoring of the teacher, the sensei, the mestre, is acknowledged in the marital arts. Nia practice, offered 7 days a week at Still & Moving, includes a strong martial arts component including the use of voice, blocks, kicks, and punches, never touching another person. Martial arts practices at Still & Moving are never offensive, always intent on cultivating the skills to minimize and avoid violence.
