Martial arts studio for the whole family?

Hi BPN’ers –

I’m looking for a studio where both my kids and myself can take classes and progress similarly  - maybe not at the same class at the same time, but  improve our martial arts together as a family.

I have an 8 year old girl and a 6 year old boy so I’m looking for a class that’s both boys and girls for both of them to feel included. And then a class for myself too.  I’m not sure if there are family classes where we might practice together? If so that would be worth checking out too.

Lastly I’m looking for a studio that is inclusive, diverse, with women + men teachers. Ideally someplace that is both respectful, encouraging, and supportive  -to help round out the physical skills.

Any leads are much appreciated.

Thank you!

I'm not clear on whether you want just martial arts or just fun family classes. My daughter and son who are 5 years apart have only once taken classes together in the same place at the same time, and that was at Trapeze Arts in West Oakland. Their schedule is pretty complicated but they have classes from young kids to adults in a variety of different activities (trapeze, of course, but also trampoline, aerial, general circus skills, and more). My daughter has continued in youth circus and it's truly a special world - very diverse, inclusive, supportive, and just generally wonderful.

TG Taekwondo in Albany has everything you are looking for! They even have family classes. I highly recommend them.

We love Studio Naga in Emeryville, it has all the things you mentioned!  Martial arts classes where kids and adults can train together and also separate kids and adult classes.  The studio is a diverse group of all genders, ages and abilities and they're great at meeting people where they are.  Very community oriented and inclusive., 510-652-6242.

If you are looking something apart from martial arts Loka Yoga in Mac Arthur has mommy and me yoga classes
