My son has been a student here for 5 years (he was 5 years old when he started). It is a great program. He is excited to go each time. The instructors take the program seriously, and challenge the students along the way.

I have been training in Martial Arts for over 10 years, spread over 24 years in time. The first time I trained it was from 1994/96 to 1997/98. The second time was from 2014 to present day, and still going. Martial Arts training is something I think would benefit everyone. The benefits from this... training are numerous. Your health, balance, confidence, self-worth, understanding of life and others by this amazing gift.I have come from being someone who did not finish things, had low self-esteem and did not want to rock the boat too much. I did what I needed to do to survive but not to better myself. I started training because I wanted more out of life and I wanted to be able to handle things, which I could gain by the discipline of Martial Arts.That was the best decision I have ever made. Training has added so much to my mind, soul and body. I approach everything with a clearer, open mind and I am able to be a better person, dad, husband and friend. This has also added more strength to my faith and caring for all things.read more

At the end of 2020 I got in touch with Body Mind Systems and went to take an experimental class. It was a simple lesson compared to what we normally do at school, but at the time it was challenging because I was totally out of shape. After that, I never wanted to stop going and every day I went... to school I felt happier, more confident and healthy!The instructors are expertly trained, they teach the movements in a simple and effective way. They are always willing to help and give such valuable guidance that if you follow it you will change your life.They aren’t a “gym”, they are a school and at the same time a family. Fighting is not even half of what I'm learning at BMS, I'm learning balance, being prepared for the good and bad times in life, taking care of my body and mind and never giving up on what's really important.Don't hesitate to go visit Body Mind Systems in Stoneham, It will be a pleasure to share my experience and talk to you in person. I hope to see you soon!Sincerely,Thalita Emeryread more

My oldest son Joshua has been going for 3 years and my youngest son Isaac for 2. Seeing them develop from the training inspired me to join and I’ve been going for over 2 years. The school not only helped get us in shape but gave us a level of confidence that I felt was lacking. Joshua is starting... to excel at basketball and soccer (and school!) while Isaac is going strong on piano and dance. For me, I’ve started my own business! Not to mention I lost 25 pounds in the first month. The school genuinely cares about your development and the instructors are expertly trained. I highly recommend this for you, your kids or anyone you care about that could really benefit from the physical and mental development that this type of training provides.read more

My two daughters started training over a year ago and have had so much fun attending the classes! They've gained confidence and strength, and are always telling me about what they learned once they come back. Though it is a rigorous workout, it's always lighthearted. They look forward to the... classes and go several times a week. Instructor Alex, in particular, is a very fun teacher. Instructors Alicia and John are also great and very kind people! My daughters have made many friends in the class. They feel safe and respected at the school and we've recommended it to other parents.read more

My two children have been taking lessons here for a few months and absolutely love their classes and instructors. I was wary at first that their enthusiasm would fade but they look forward to each class and is one of the few times they will actually hurry out the door because they don't want to... miss a minute of class. They've learned to cooperate more with each other since classes have started and my older one has been more patient with the younger one in teaching him the new moves they've learned. It's been very easy to communicate with the instructors and we love the sense of community between the members.read more

I've been training here for over a year and I could not be happier. The instructors are highly knowledgeable, and it is quite clear from watching them move, and hold positions, that they are all well-trained, and also care about each student's individual growth. The training ultimately helps... harmonize the mind and body, and has increased my joint strength and my balance, among other benefits. I intend to train here for years to come.Edit - August 2021 - In addition to what I wrote above (which is still valid two years later), my two oldest children attend the children's and junior's programs at BMS. These are excellent programs for kids that I strongly recommend. In addition to the exercise and self defense skills expected from a martial arts class, there is a strong emphasis on building confidence and handling difficult situations, both of which are important for developing minds. The instructors are disciplined, patient, and fun, and the kids always leave with a smile on their face.read more

I have been training at body mind system for three months now and I have to say enrolling in the program has been one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life even though it’s been only a few months. My discipline has improved. I’m increasing my willpower cause I’m pushing myself to do the hard... things I wouldn’t typically do. I’ve also learned to be more mindful with the training and learned how to use my breath to get through the hard stuff. And also I’m using my mind to control my body instead of letting my body control my mind because I learned in body mind system that the mind has to be stronger than the body because the mind holds more will power and that’s what helps you to be successful.Im building strength, flexibility, and agility as well as Increase in awareness, patience, brain power and remaining present through training. My motivation not only with the training but also in my personal life and my personal goals have increased not to mention the instructors are very helpful and supportive with whatever endeavor I’m working on.But yeah I love it. Looking back from when I began to now, Body mind system is has helped me break alot of my bad habits and I’m extremely grateful.read more

When I started this training 6 months ago, I was looking for self-confidence and more concentration to improve my life. I was consulting with my therapist for a few years after my child's birth and the postpartum depression. At one point, she suggested trying Martial Arts and learning Self Defense... techniques to gain more self-awareness. I took the advice and now I am really happy and proud of myself for doing that. Even in this not-very-long time of 6 months, I can see the amount of concentration and awareness I gained. Others see it too. My family is very happy with the changes they're seeing and feeling in my mood. I even am very better at controlling my anger now than ever before.I didn't talk about the physical aspects of the training as everyone else did.I also like to mention the high level of professionalism among the instructors and their respectful behavior with all their students. I really appreciate that.read more

My two kids have been training here for the last 6 years, and I joined 6 months ago. Such a great workout for both the body and the mind! I like learning in general for the dopamine response it gives me, and wow - this gives my brain such a challenge when learning new forms, and all while... exercising me physically at the same time. Great effect on the children too. Instructor David (who works with children) is the talk of our house 🙂read more

I joined the Martial Arts Program called Bagua on 3/25/22. The form Bagua strengthens from the inside out. This method uses foot work, circular, and spiraling movements for self defense and attack. In turn these motions help move Qi throughout the body, clearing blocked emotions and rejuvenating... the energy system. This technique is absolutely amazing. I feel such a strong connection to my inner power since I started learning this practice. I feel physically stronger, calmer, with greater clarity and self determination. We have experienced masters and instructors educating us in the form of Bagua. I am grateful for the teaching, discipline, respect, and care that I receive at Body Mind Systems. I highly recommend this school to anyone who wants to positively impact their body and mind.read more

There is Medicine in MovementWhen I started: I suffered from back pain for years and was having difficulty mentally focusing. The school trains you in traditional methods of movement and mindfulness. Since training for 3 years, my back has never felt better, my attention is steadfast and my... family appreciates my mindful behavior.Many of their ancient methods (2600 yr old) have been recent modern medical discoveries. The instructors assist with modifications for physical limitations, making everyone welcome.The Body Mind System’s community encourage and support everyone’s goals to better themselves. Whether you are interested in self defense, strength/flexibility, mental focus, inner peace and/or spirituality, they can help you reach your goal.I highly recommend this school.read more

I was hit by an IED in Afgahnistan in 2010. The blast broke both of my legs whcih left me with some physical deformities. The training I have recieved at Body Mind Systems has dramatically improved the function of my affected limbs. Not to mention, the blend of traditional Chinese and Korean... martial arts is extremely fascinating! My 5 year old daughter is having an absolute blast in her classes too. She is slightly neuro divergent but I have seen great improvement in her body awareness/ control since she began training about a month ago. Regional Instructor George is highly skilled in his art, and just as skilled in his ability to teach adults and children alike. I highly recommend Body Mind Systems to anyone looking to improve their lives through martial arts.read more

I rarely feel compelled enough to write google reviews but in this case it's a must. Both my two boys and myself attend Body Mind Systems and have been for several months now. The depth of knowledge of the many martial art styles and systems is truly impressive. The instructors are extremely... talented individuals who have exceeded my expectations for both myself and my children. The School/locations are very well taken care of and safe and I have no issues leaving my children for a class. Having a decade of martial art experience prior to my time at Body Mind, I'm confident when I say that these guys are among the best. I refer people to to Body Mind frequently and recommend them with zero reservation.read more

My son has been attending Body Mind Systems in Littleton for about a year and it has been such a positive experience. I have seen him grow tremendously since starting here. It is warm and welcoming to new students and also a challenge that students can take pride in. Very reasonably priced and I... love instead of charging for new belts after belt tests they particularly dye the belt for you. Less wasteful and a pretty cool idea. I would definitely recommend this school!read more

Thank you Body Mind Systems!read more

BMS in Littleton has become a way of life for personal physical, emotional and spiritual growth for me. As a professional in my 60's, I was looking for an "exercise" adjunct in my busy life. I have a neuromuscular muscle disease and I found the perfect accepting program to help me face my fears of... aging and now holistically am living my best life. National Instructor John has created a culture for training in the martial arts that is accepting and individualized to meet one's goals. This type of martial arts program brings together all styles of external and internal teaching and practice training. Weapon training is a bonus.I give this program a 10/10 rating for someone looking for Martial Arts for themselves and/or their family.read more

From the moment our family stepped into Body Mind Systems nearly four years ago, we knew we had found a special place. The environment here is one of discipline and kindness, a combination that has not only been beneficial during lessons but has also positively impacted our home life. The... instructors at Body Mind Systems excel at nurturing both the physical and mental growth of their students, emphasizing the importance of being a well-rounded individual. This approach is exactly what we were looking for and has made a significant difference in our lives.One of the aspects we appreciate the most is how the instructors manage to intertwine martial arts training with valuable life lessons. The children are taught to handle various weapons, such as nunchucks, with respect and responsibility, reinforcing the idea that these skills are not for play. This teaches them the importance of discipline and control, lessons that they carry into their everyday lives.The progression through the levels at Body Mind Systems is rigorous and comprehensive. To advance, students must not only demonstrate their martial arts skills but also show personal growth and responsibility, including at home. The instructors work closely with parents to set goals for the students, such as completing chores, which must be achieved to progress. This collaboration ensures that the values taught in class are reinforced at home, creating a consistent message about the importance of hard work and responsibility.The small group sizes at Body Mind Systems allow for personalized attention, ensuring that each child's needs are met. This individual focus helps keep the classes engaging and fun, fostering an environment where the kids are excited to learn and grow. Our experience with free classes at other martial arts schools pales in comparison to the quality and care we've found here.We wholeheartedly recommend Body Mind Systems to any family looking for a martial arts school that offers more than just physical training but a comprehensive approach to personal development. It is, without doubt, our favorite.read more

Body Mind Systems offers eight martial arts taught as one. Kung Fu movements are circular and originated by observing animals and elements in nature. Bagua Zhang uses Daoist-based qigong techniques and philosophy, merged with a circular style of twisting martial techniques, including evasive footwork and palm changes. Qi energy is incorporated into one’s body using “circle walking” techniques. Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese internal form of movement that focuses on the cultivation of Qi energy and harmonizes the mind, body and spirit. Tai Chi promotes mental and physical well-being.
