New martial arts studio opens in Brooklyn
Certified Martial Arts trainer Travis Warner has opened a new studio, Rose City Martial Arts, at 3432 S.E. Milwaukie Avenue – the former home of Hazel & Pear Consignment Shop. The new studio, covered in protective matting, is open to students from age 3 to adult. Classes are held daily for different ages. Warner hopes to train kids in the art of self-defense, as a way to get along with others and build self-esteem.
Warner and two other instructors teach a variety of Jiu Jitsu, No Gi, and Kali fundamentals. Warner collects old Jiu Jitsu memorabilia, and stresses that his aim is to help kids develop self-confidence, rather than to learn attack modes. There is a sliding scale for payments, and also classes are available for people with disabilities.
Rose City Martial Arts sells memberships – as well as black and yellow T-shirts – at the studio, which he encourages neighbors to come and visit. The phone number for information is 503/849-8954.
