Dear Naga Community and Friends,
It’s been a bumpy year on this planet we share, and so many things seem a little topsy turvy right now. Still, what I know in the eye of the storm is that the Studio brings me great joy and gives me so much to be grateful for!
The generosity of our teachers here is inspiring. Each of them – you! – from black belts to brand new white sashes — has given of yourself this year demonstrating deep compassion and great humility. (Teaching may well be the hardest part of our rank requirements!)
I am grateful to families who continue to place trust in our community and our collective wisdom. Our aim is to build leaders; we are fierce fighters but what we truly revere is compassion and heart. If we did not, it would be irresponsible to share this beautiful – but very effective – art.
As we continue to grow we deepen our understanding of our mission. More of our black belt college students will be graduating this spring – making us proud. And our younger teen black belts who tested in September are getting comfortable in their inky new wraps.
This year, the Jungle Gym exploded! The diverse and spirited upstairs group continues to capture our imagination and our hearts; peek in some Saturday morning and catch site of the riot that is that wonderful gang of chimps. As usual, they will perform at the upcoming party and are sure to bring misty eyes with their innocence and joy… or that’s what I call it!
Thanks to each and every one of you, together we make the Naga community and yes, we are stronger together. And plus, it’s so much fun!

Holiday break: We’ll be closed from Dec. 22 to the 30th.
See you December 31st for ONE “end-the-year-right” workout at 10am!
Important Policy Changes: In January, we’ll celebrate 15 years at this location – and the signing of a new 10-year lease! However, as imagined, the increase in our rent for this agreement was substantial. As a result, after many many years, we are raising dues as of January 2017 when child and adult tuition will increase by $6 per month. The Jungle Gym rate will change from $88/mo. to $99/mo. If this is a hardship for you or your family please let us know. We’re excited to be ensuring the next chapter of Naga and thankful for your support!
