Please DM Nicole about reserving your spot at this special weekly event, as space is limited. First class $5 per person & then punch cards are available. Please visit the site gvillemartialarts.com/classes for more. Card carrying members recieve a unique patch for their gear or clothing along w/ their real world skills that can build confidence & regulatory skills as well as increase attention & focus due to the bilateral nature of the movement. Many report reduced fear & other unexpected bonuses such as better, more empowered dreams. Check it out & see for yourself how this time and practice helps you.



See for yourself why individualized movement arts such as kickboxing, dance, circus arts, & Systema, when approached as a playful art are best for long-term health, strength, & readiness to act in an emergency. Develop a personal skill set while learning your body's ranges of motion & full potential. Practice leading with your breath (to access the vagus nerve- https://www.thecut.com/2019/05/i-now-suspect-the-vagus-nerve-is-the-key-to-well-being.html) to free your mind and body to do more of what you choose. Increase awareness and achieve ultimate outcomes in just about any situation.  You will have increased strength and flexibility to win at the game of life with trained educator, mental health professional passionate about personal empowerment, and daughter of a former police officer invested in meeting the needs of the individual, Nicole Nicolaisen Stern, LMHC, NCC, MA EdS.                                                     


Work the foundations of American-style kickboxing with Eastern, Western, ancient, and modern influences... no wraps, no gloves. Whether you train once a week or up to four, your body, mind, and spirit will appreciate the attention to detail, making you more capable of handling the challenges of life with ease, leading to freedom of fear, worry, and stress.


This freedom may even seep into to your subconscious to help the quality of your dreams & sleep as well as other areas of your life leading to a deep sense of confidence and well-being, as reported by students.
