If you were with us before Covid, know that we have downsized into our original space (Green Room only) and class offerings have shifted. .
But space doesn't make the class....PEOPLE do!
West African Drumming
The djembe has become a very popular instrument around the world. Whether people have the opportunity to learn and embrace the origin of the djembe and its rich culture or not, the djembe brings people together and provides social and health & wellness benefits, as well.
Our studio drumming program provides an introduction to djembe drumming using traditional West African rhythms as a foundation for learning notes and techniques that make this melodic percussion instrument come alive!
For those who are drawn to continue beyond the basics, our program offer opportunities to learn more about the music and culture of West African rhythms, including periodic opportunities to study with visiting teachers and master drummers from West Africa.
Self-defense/martial arts programming for varied interests, needs, levels and abilities...
Studio Solomon offers martial arts training, self-defense workshops and martial arts-related fitness classes to meet a variety of community and individual needs and interests.*
We know that not everyone is interested in martial arts or the commitment it takes to earn a black belt.
We also know that everyone can benefit from self-defense training and the physical exercise required for basic martial arts drills:
- You don't have to be a martial artist to protect yourself
- Age, health and physical abilities are factors that may call for adaptations
Specializing in Women's Programming
Our Women-Only self-defense-related programs foster a sense of community, where women and girls can focus in a safe, distraction and intimidation-free environment.
Our female-led classes provide a gentle, yet disciplined style of learning.
Self-defense/martial arts-related fitness classes provide fitness benefits, plus the confidence and security of learning skills that could potentially save your life.
Fitness-level classes provide a solid foundation for additional martial arts training.*
You decide how far you want to go!
Martial Arts Training
Studio Solomon offers full co-ed martial arts training in the Universal African Fighting Arts System - a combination system containing elements of many familiar martial arts styles.
Women train right alongside the men.
* All self-defense and martial arts-oriented fitness classes are based on the Universal African Fighting Arts System.
