Why Martial Arts is more than just Punching and Kicking.

To many, martial arts may be seen as non conducive to the positive development of a child or an adult. By some, its practice can be viewed as barbaric and counterproductive to a civilized society. As you can probably guess, I disagree.

Martial Arts, under the proper guidance has the ability to teach individuals about physical fitness, goal setting, determination, team work, discipline, leadership, and the value of hard work. While I do not consider myself a scholar by any stretch of the…
