Stanley Kids Camp
Focus and fun is the premise behind our children’s day camp, facilitated by qualified staff from Enshin Karate and Kindness Yoga!
Every day includes a wide variety of activities that focus on mindfulness, discipline, embodiment, and play. Yur child will explore martial arts, yoga practice, West African drumming, breakdancing, parkour, meditation, and even chess! Our campers have so much fun and leave with tremendous knowledge, focus, and a toolbox of awareness and stress-management skills.
To create a day most conducive to your child's learning level, we are breaking kids up into two age groups: 6-9 years old and 10-14 years old. Your kiddo's day might look something like this:
9am: Yoga with Kindness
10am: Snacktime & games
10:30am: Guest instructor (African drumming or breakdancing)
12:30pm: Karate with Enshin
This program is overseen and directed by 4-time martial arts world champion Mike Ninomiya and his lovely wife Diana Ninomiya. Both Mike and Diana have taught kids' yoga, drumming, and martial arts classes alongside Kindness Yoga owner Patrick Harrington for years. They have been certified to teach at Denver Public Schools in the Radiant Beginnings and Enshin Karate enrichment programs.

About Your Instructors
Mitsuyuki “Mike” Ninomiya has made mind-body discipline his life for over 30 years… having taught martial arts and meditation internationally to people ages two to ninety-four years old! A retired four-time world champion, Mike was drawn to the therapeutic aspects of yoga. ”As a teacher my aim is to establish a strong connection in heart so that our inner light is spread radiantly.” His classes can be described as vibrant, uplifting and in the moment. Mike is also involved in West African drum/dance and the national chess circuit. He also enjoys surfing and creating art.
Diana Ninomiya brings the amazing balance of compassion and discipline to the practice of Enshin Karate. This comes from many years of training in martial arts where she has taught people of all ages awareness in mind-body focus. Throughout her career, she has volunteered and taught many non-profit organizations self defense and empowerment for numerous underserved populations in the Denver metro area. In this realm she has demonstrated a unique gift as an empath and a healer: knowing intuitively the best way to let the imbalance dissolve itself through the practice. Diana is a 2nd degree black belt and the 2016 World Sabaki Challenge runner-up.
