Get in on the action, and join Whitney Handrich at Southwest Portland Martial Arts (Capitol Hwy campus) for “Tiny Tots Yoga,” appropriate for adults + children [crawling to age 4 ]. Meets on Sunday, November 3rd from 9:30-10:30AM. Enjoy 45 minutes of direct practice with Whitney on the soft mats of the dojo, with Open Play to follow until 10:30AM. *This class will not meet in December. 

“Join us for an engaging and creative introduction to yoga, mindfulness, and meditation through partner and group yoga-inspired play, music, storytelling, and dance. From using our imaginations to go on a yoga adventure to unwinding in peaceful relaxation, this is the perfect opportunity to bring out your own child within, have fun, and bond with your little one!”

This dynamic class will be limited to 25 students (adults and children) and may involve noise, activity, and pacing associated with working with young children in a small, enclosed space. The class likewise involves some positive touch during certain group poses.

Pre-registration is required to save your spot. No Drop-ins please. Tickets are transferrable, but non-refundable please.

Join us on the soft mats of our Capitol Highway campus [6315 Sw Cap Hwy] for a 3.5 hr. Adult/Child/Infant CPR, AED & Basic First Aid Certification Class with Laurie Dennis of “Be A Lifesaver.” Laurie has been teaching for approximately 23 years in the Portland Metro area.

Roughly one-third of the training is hands-on with the balance being demo/lecture. Each participant receives a two-year, laminated, completion card.

This class will take place on the floor of an open, padded space. 

Each Adult/Child/Infant CPR, AED and Basic First Aid class includes the following instruction:

  • ****************************
  • One-Rescurer CPR (adult/child/infant)
  • Recognition and relief of foreign body airway obstruction (FBAO): responsive/unresponsive victim
  • Use of face barriers
  • Universal precautions for disease transmission
  • Risk factors for heart disease and stroke
  • Use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
  • Hands-on skills performance evaluation—no more than two students per manikin
  • Basic First Aid (15 first aid emergencies: medical, injury, and environmental)
Laerdal Medical Corporation training products are used:  manikins; Philips AED trainer, and manikin face shields. Each participant receives a pocket hand sanitizer, gloves, and quick reference guides. The laminated completion cards are valid for two years from the class date.

We will supply floor chairs and/or swiss balls for those who need them for the lecture portion, by advance written request (this allows us to ensure that we have enough on hand for all who need them).

Registration + payment functions to secure your spot at this event. Each year we have enjoyed an increasingly great turnout; start helping promote “early and often,” and we should knock it out of the park again this year! Do not wait to register…there are more schools in the area than slots, and this event has only grown over time.

The spirit of this event is intended to be one of inclusivity/unity and helpfulness. While we will be sandwiching 20 amazing preschools into one open-plan gym space, there certainly is room enough for everyone’s program to shine! We celebrate the diversity of our schools,
and are pleased to offer you all a space to offer up information and help families determine a “best-fit” program for their children!

Vendors may set up as early as noon. Please only bring tables that are 5′ in length max. We will not be able to provide vendors with electrical outlets. Families don’t much care about slideshows…they mainly just want to meet school reps and talk, face-to-face. ***NO PRODUCT SALES, OR SCHOOL SERVICE SALES allowed at this event. It’s all about you and your amazing schools! In other words, nobody should be tabling or walking around hustling/interrupting you, to sell you stuff;)

We are hosting a point sparring and forms tournament at our new space on Saturday, November 9th from 9am-11am.

The goal is to give students from the three MDP schools (and hopefully a few kids from outside schools) an event that motivates them to continue progressing in their martial arts skills, even during the busy opening months of the school year.

Divisions will be created the day of the event. We will do our best to sort students in groups that are of similar age, size, and skill level. We will use a double elimination format in sparring to ensure that each student gets a minimum of 2 matches. Medals will be handed out for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in all divisions.

Sliding scale admission means parents are welcome to pay what they feel they can afford: 10, 15, or 20 dollars.
