Gymnastics are coming to Estacada

Team Ezra Martial Arts School to offer classes


by: ISABEL GAUTSCHI - Miranda Carter strikes a pose after an impressive handstand. Carter will teach children's gymnastic lessons at the Team Ezra School of Martial Arts in Estacada.Miranda Carter said when she approached Leo Hoeft to ask if he'd allow her to teach gymnastics classes at his Team Ezra Martial Arts School, he agreed right away because “there's not much in the community for little kid extracurriculars like this.”

Carter has been doing gymnastics since she was 5 or 6 years old.

“It's a good way to (learn) control of the body and to take out some energy,” she said.

The classes will be geared toward boys and girls ages 3-12.

Carter will teach skills such as forward and backward rolls and back bends during hour-long sessions Monday and Wednesday evenings.

A month pass for a weekly class is $50.

For more information, call Carter at 503-630-3585.
