WORLD CHAMPION - HALL OF FAME

TEACHING KIDS NOT TO FIGHT
People often have the misconception that martial arts is teaching kids to fight. That is indeed a misconception. My students are rarely involved in altercations at school or elsewhere. I recently had a local teacher talking to me about a group of our students saying that they were some of the most respected students in the school and that they never cause trouble. Respect only comes from respecting others and respect is exactly what we teach our Free Form students. Yes, they learn self-defense while gaining self-esteem and self-confidence, but in doing so, they learn how NOT to fight. One of the 7 philosophies that our students are required to learn is "A good martial artist will avoid conflict if possible." We are very proud of our students and how they represent Free Form Martial Arts. Keep up the good work!
