Q: Can people get injured with Martial Arts?
A: As a parent, I'm sure you've seen that kids can get injured doing just about anything. Martial Arts is no different; however, we take safety very seriously here. Yes, injuries do happen sometimes. But we do everything in our power to avoid them. We do special warm-up exercises and stretches to make sure their body is limber and flexible, and they are supervised at all times.
Q: Do boys and girls participate in Martial Arts?
A: You bet! We have a good mix of both girls and boys in our classes, as it promotes gender equality. Martial arts give boys and girls the means to develop focus, confidence, determination, high self-esteem and respect for self and others, which is so important as they grow up. Martial arts also gives kids and adults with special needs a safe and comfortable place to be themselves, have great fun, and develop friendships.
