With plant life, rock waterfalls, and Asian script art decorating its open hardwood-floored studio, Satori Martial Arts and its dedicated instructors provide mind- and body-builders with meditative and self-defense training. Twice a week, tai chi instructor and University of Toledo professor Dr. Chen demonstrates the basics of tai chi’s stress-melting mannerisms, offering solutions to stressful problems and bi-weekly crossword puzzles. Students can summon their inner enlightenment on Tuesdays from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Advancing students are expected to devote 15 minutes a day towards practicing at home.
The four-week cardio fitness boot camp romps through an hour of intense cardiovascular circuit training twice a week, loosening up flexible legs and fearsome fists. Upbeat music compliments the calorie-destroying clinic, imparting an intense fitness regimen and endowing students with the self-defense acumen to protect themselves from librarian-themed supervillains. Boot camps run on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:45 a.m. to 9:45 a.m.
